What’s For Dinner? Volume 2

The Best Lasagna Ever – The Pioneer Woman
Spicy Pulled Pork – The Pioneer Woman (apparently, this one’s cookbook exclusive – I can’t find it online)(it was not spicy)
Drip Beef Sandwiches
– The Pioneer Woman
Peach Crisp with Maple Cream Sauce – The Pioneer Woman (Yeah, I’m a fan. In case you didn’t already know. It doesn’t help that I just bought her cookbook.)

Not pictured (because it was after the fair and I was too tired to remember: Mini Meatball Sandwiches – The Pioneer Woman

Fish Tostadas with Chili-Lime Cream – Better Homes & Gardens
Gnocchi with Spinach and Goat Cheese – originally from Giada but I can’t find it, posted in the comments here by my friend Merin
Marinated Chicken with Cucumber Mint Salad – Martha Stewart
No-knead Lemon Rosemary Bread – Williams-Sonoma (mine is torn out of a catalog from Christmas 2 years ago)

And then we ate leftovers, leftovers, leftovers, LEFTOVERS.

What did you eat this week?

(P.S. If you’ve noticed a sudden spike in the number of photo collages here on ye olde blog, it’s because I just discovered Picasa & I’m OBSESSED. It does everything from little edits like removing red eye to cool effects to watermarking photos. Why did no one tell me about it before? <—- not a paid endorsement)

    I’ve been meaning to ask you about the collages, but I didn’t want to sound like a luddite. I’ve heard good things about Picasa, but Flickr is so nicely integrated with iPhoto…and I’m soooo upload lazy it’s unreal.

    Monday we had spicy shrimp with noodles, Tuesday we had patty melts with sauteed mushrooms and roasted potatoes, Wednesday night we went out because no one in the house got more than 4 hours sleep the night before and I didn’t have enough brain cells to be trusted with heating elements, and last night we had pad thai (wasn’t very good).

    I guess I need to the PW cookbook, huh? It’s that good?

  2. Will you come live with me? And cook? My dinners consist of PB&J, english muffin pizzas and ramen noodles. No, I’m not in college, my husband is just never home. But that stuff you have up there? OMG. Looks delish.

    Last night I prepared Spiced Pork Tenderloin with Maple-Chipotle Sauce. Recipe from myrecipes.com

    I made Shrimp in a ginger/soy/lime marinade last night. It was good but I’ve discovered that a)we cannot afford pre-cleaned shrimp and b) cleaning shrimp is a lot of work. So that one might go on the shelf for awhile.

  5. Everything looks delicious! I wanna try the gnocchi.

  6. merin says:

    Your gnocchi looks so good-how did you get it all browned up like that? Did you broil it or just bake it longer? All of this food looks so incredible-I’m dying here. Matt is still trying to lose a few more lbs so we are still restricting calories…so HUNGRY!!!

    Can you please come to my house and cook!!!! This week I have only cooked Homemade Baked Mac-n-cheese. I have been sick most of the week, as in going to work then coming home and sleeping until I had to go to work again. The boys are beginning to think I have forgotten how to cook. To the point the oldest has been eating at his Girlfriends house (LOL) Your meals look delicious, could you share the Pulled Pork Recipe with me, we have a hog still in the freezer and 2 in the back yard fattening up for the freezer so I am always on the look out for Great Pork Recipes. Thanks

    I understand why PW uses cottage cheese (she lives in the middle of nowhere and it’s hard to find ricotta) but… do you not have access to ricotta? I can see subbing cottage cheese if you absolutely can’t get ricotta cheese, and I like to EAT cottage cheese, but lasagna made with cottage cheese is inferior to lasagna made with ricotta cheese. It’s a completely different dish. And I say this having grown up eating both lasgana made with ricotta and casseroles made with cottage cheese.

    Coming up this week I’m making beef stew and biscuits, chicken of some sort (I still have some home made stock in the fridge), and macaroni and cheese using a new recipe. We’re still working our way through a massive pot of chili that I made. I want to make split pea soup, too. The corner store sells great smokey ham hocks. I’m also looking for decent cauliflower heads… lately they have ALL been mildewed and disgusting… so I can make this: http://stickygooeycreamychewy.com/2009/12/12/cauliflower-gratin/ I’m going to brown/toast/sautee the bread crumbs before I put them on, though, in butter with salt and black pepper and garlic powder.

    I’ll have to try Picasa again. When I used it before I wasn’t a fan. I can’t remember why. I use Picnik (picnik.com) to edit photos and create collages. It’s free unless you upgrade.

    • bebehblog says:

      I also love Picnik, especially their contrast editing features, but their collage options are sadly lacking unless you buy the premium version. Plus when I’m doing a large number of photos, uploading them all is a PITA. I also didn’t like Picasa the last time I tried it so they’ve definitely changed their format or something and deserve another try. (Also, Picasa links directly to Picnik now, which makes things even easier.)
