This week, I return to attempting to try some dishes that I have planned to make before…then just didn’t. I planned one several times with the best of intentions (Sweet Tea Fried Chicken), because, let’s face it, I live in the South, and it’s sweet tea and fried chicken.
I am also super excited about one recipe that I am trying this week: Huevos Rancheros. It’s one of those dishes I have always wanted to try…but haven’t.
Truly, I sound like the most boring scaredy-cat person ever with the above statements. But this week, I am going to be bold! I am going to give these recipes their due! And that’s all there is to it!
Do all of those exclamations sound emphatic enough?
Also, today is my mom’s birthday! (Happy birthday, Mom!) I won’t say how old she is (although if she were still teaching, she would tell her students that she is 135 and that she was born in 1881), but if you send her the oh-so-appropriate (anniversary of her birth-wise) gift of diamonds, she might faint!
My mom’s lucky in that her birthday regularly falls on Labor Day weekend, and this year it falls on Labor Day itself. (Happy Labor Day, by the way, to everyone else!)
So, what is on that lovely, luscious, delicious, have to try those underdog and unforgotten recipes meal plan?
Here’s what I plan:
Saturday: Chicken Croquettes (Macaroni & Cheesecake), green veg, fruit
Sunday: Cashew Sweet and Sour Pork (Our Best Bites), rice, egg roll
Monday: Apricot Glazed Chicken with Dried Plums and Sage (Sticky, Gooey, Creamy, Chewy: The site seems to be broken, so I will make the recipe and post an entry of it), rice, green veg
Tuesday: Huevos Rancheros (adding crumbled chorizo) (Fifteen Spatulas), fruit
Wednesday: Cap’n Crunch French Toast (Lick the Bowl Good), breakfast meat, fruit
Thursday: leftovers or hot dogs
