It feels like we have gone from summer to winter here, which means I am suddenly really in the mood to cook.
I finally got around to trying Dana's Spicy Sauteed Chickpeas, Beef & Cilantro this past week and it was a big hit, even with the kids. The chickpeas and cilantro are a great combination, it was easy to prepare and it was a nice change from my typical ground beef dishes. The only changes I made were omitting the Spike Seasoning (because I did not have any), using beef broth (because it was what I had) and reducing the chickpeas to one 19 ounce can.
Deborah's Beef Stroganoff was also a success. My Polish husband and my cream sauce loving girl licked their plates clean. I felt like the sauce was missing just a little something, although I am not sure what that something is. Garlic? More pepper? Beef consomme in place of the beef stock? I will play with the recipe a bit next time and see what I can come up with.
And finally, on to this week's menu:
Sunday: Chicken Fajitas
Monday: Drunken Garlic Pot Roast with Potatoes and Squash
Tuesday: Daddy out; leftovers for the girls
Wednesday: Pizza Night
