Well, we are finally free of the snow (although my kids may never see the inside of a classroom due to 10 foot ice piles on every sidewalk). We did some serious grocery shopping yesterday, so I am stocked up for the rest of the month. So here is a hearty menu fit for post shoveling fuel ups.
Sunday & Monday - tamale pie - I love this stuff. We make an extra one and freeze it for another day.
Tuesday - Steaks with blue cheese butter - yum! Fabulous dry aged steaks were on sale at Wegman's
Wednesday & Thursday - Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Ricotta, and Peas - this is something a little on the logger side.
Friday & Saturday - Pan-Fried Fresh Salmon Cakes - I love these! I make them with a creamy lemon dill sauce. On nom nom nom.
Added due to popular demand - blue cheese butter
3 tablespoons unsalted butter , softened
1 1/2 ounces blue cheese (mild), room temperature
1/8 teaspoon table salt
2 tablespoons minced fresh chive
Combine butter, cheese, and salt in medium bowl and mix with stiff rubber spatula until smooth. Fold in chives. While steaks are resting, spoon 1 to 2 tablespoons butter on each one.
Enjoy you week. I'm off to shovel the 4-6 inches of snow were expecting to land on top of the 3 feet already in my driveway.
BTW. Don't forget to check in tomorrow to see my entry into the first supah survivor challenge.
