Well, last week's menu was derailed midway through the week. I've not been feeling my best for the past couple days, so one day Brad picked up Raising Cain's chicken fingers for dinner (YUM!), and the next day he grabbed a frozen pizza from Target on his way home from class, and we ate that. I'm feeling somewhat better now, though, and am ready to get back on my game! Today I made the first component of the next Tuesdays with Dorie recipe: The Most Extraordinary French Lemon Cream Tart. I'll post more about it on Tuesday, so be watching for that. If the whole finished product tastes as good as this one part I made, we're in for a treat!
Now, about food we ate today. This morning, true to my declaration to get back into the kitchen, we had a full-on, no-shit Southern breakfast: sausage, biscuits, gravy and grits. OH, BABY!
We could have had some eggs with it, but eggs are healthy, and we wouldn't want them to get in the way of all that yummy, unhealthy other stuff.
I'll confess that we cheated and used frozen Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits (shut up, they are really good, and better than anything I've been able to make from scratch), and used Jimmy Dean's pre-cooked sausage patties, but I'm OK with that.
Yum yum yum yum yum yum yum yum yummmmmmmmm!
