The Monday Menu: February 1, 2010

Five things I learned about curling last week:

  • Each rock weighs 40 pounds.
  • The last rock thrown in an end is “the hammer.”
  • The scoreboard is hard to read until someone explains it to you.
  • The handle on the rock is called “Eye on the Hog.”
  • Inexperienced players wibble wobble, but none fell down. I was waiting, though.

And just like that, it’s February. While January was an exciting month for me, full of opportunities and changes, I would not like to repeat it. I am happy to be moving forward in the year, and I’m hoping that I find balance as I continue to shift my schedule and move the puzzle pieces around.

Monday – Baked haddock and leek and potato gratin.

Tuesday – Pizza for the kids and pizza for us, but not in the same place. We’ll be at our friends’ house watching LOST.

Wednesday – Brick chicken with scallion and lime butter, quinoa salad and steamed vegetables

Thursday – Spinach and ricotta ravioli – delicious! – that we flash froze so there would be quick and easy meals available

Friday – Scotch eggs and potato salad with carrot sticks and fruit.

Recipes from last week here at Food for My Family: Chicken fried rice. Then I’ll continue that theme. I’ve got cream cheese wontons and General Tso’s chicken on their way.

    You’ll be the most knowledgeable mom in your curling-madness pool this Olympics I’m sure.

    Speaking of pizza Tuesday, is there any way to replicate Papa John’s garlic butter?

  2. oh, I’m so excited for LOST!!!

  3. That brick Chicken look sooo good, I’ll have to try that!

  4. HaHa! I’ve had the Scotch Eggs at the MN State Fair. My youngest daughter was showing a llama 2 years ago and the stand is very close to the show barn. She liked them too… where’s the recipe!
