Today's Special May 10-16th

Ok so I always wonder if anybody reads my menu posts. So, I'm going to take a survey... how many of you out there want me to keep doing this? I put an anonymous survey on my page so you can vote! Isn't that fun?! Feel free to leave me regular comments too.... i.e. Is it useful to you? Have you ever made anything I posted? Is there something that would make you like it more? I'm going to make up a menu each week whether I post it or not, but I figured if nobody really paid attention to it, I wouldn't spend the time. So be honest. Would you rather just look at my Recipezaar account for ideas? Is this easier for you? Do you want me to quit my whining?

Sunday: Dinner at Annie's house for Mother's Day/Mom's Birthday. She & Eric made us turkey with mashed potatoes and gravy and beets. It was very good. I brought Rolls and Strawberry Cream Cake.

Monday: Enchiladas Verdes (this was a new recipe, it was VERY good. I'll be posting this on my Recipezaar account soon. I used canned tomatillos and chiles in this instead of roasting them myself because I'm a busy woman on the go. Ok I'm just lazy.)

Tuesday: P.F. Chang's Mongolian Beef with Moo Shu Noodles (Both new recipes, but both were recommended by Annie).

Wednesday: Leftovers

Thursday: Gyros (I'm getting the gyro meat from Snider's Family Meats in Ogden) with Tzatziki (the white yogurt sauce- got this from Annie too). Bought some Greek pitas and got onions, tomatoes and feta cheese to put on them.

Weekend: Grilled Pork Loin (don't know what recipe yet, just wanted to grill something). Might get one already stuffed/seasoned from Snider's or maybe I'll try this recipe Grilled Pork Loin with Apple-Cherry Filling with Caraway. We'll probably steam some zucchini squash to go with it.

I don't want to make more work for you! If you don't want to post recipes, feel free on my account not to... But I'd be sad if you stopped! It's so fun! I like knowing what you and the Seth-boy are eating! And, I found the Asian Noodles recipe cuz of you! Which I'm STILL SO excited to try as soon as the ingredients are in the house. Sadly the shopping list with all the stuff on it got lost... but I can start over! (We've yet to make a comprehensive grocery trip since I wrote it out...)
Also... This local (Boise) OVERPRICED Greek restaurant, the Cazba, has as an automatically-served dinner appetizer, these WONDERFUL thin, soft, pita slices with tzatziki sauce to DIE for. I don't know why I like it so much! It's orange and SPICY. YUM YUM! I wonder if it's like what you made only with chili powder or something like that. I'd need to go there with a cooking genius to figure the ingredients out! But I'd LOVE to! It's the only thing on the menu worth the price! (Free :))
