Pheasant!? I am seriously jealous. My absolute favorite way to eat pheasant is apple wood smoked. I wrote a post about it awhile back when we did it for Thanksgiving, if you're looking for ideas.

Tonight it's chilly and we're trying to eat through pantry goods and freezer stuff before we move, so I made a proper perloo. Used up some rice that's been in pantry forever, as well as andouille sausage, the last of the shrimp and some chicken from the freezer. Score.
If I wanted to baked it though do I just do it like chicken?? I don't want to dry it out. That recipe sounds very good! It won't be something I could do tomorrow though lol

Too bad you can't try it - it's so addicting. :-) Two of my favorite tricks for making sure meat doesn't dry out are putting on some kind of a glaze, like honey mustard (with a pinch of cayenne mixed in is especially good!) or braising it. A little white wine, or stock if you don't go in for alcohol, would both be good.

Managed a beef stew tonight. Simple, but pretty good.

You're welcome - how did you end up cooking it and how did they turn out?

I've been using this recipe from Saveur for years. I just swap the oysters for chicken because we're not huge oyster fans, and it's pretty expensive dish to make when you account for all of the different kinds of protein in there!

Ugh, sore throats all around here. So just leftover perloo if we can stomach it, or chicken noodle soup if we can't!

Creamed eggs over toast, maybe some collard greens from the garden.

I've never made creamed eggs over toast before, but I remember my mom's best friend used to make them for me when she was babysitting, and I HATED them. Now though when I think about what I remember from that dish, they sound pretty good! I hope I will like them! (my kids too!)

Salad and....something. Ideally something nearly instant after braving 2 doctors appointments in a row with my 4 week old this afternoon. Yikes.

This week's plan so far:

* Crockpot potatoes with steamed broccoli
* Noodles with tofu & vegetable stirfry
* Frozen phyllo spinach spirals and roasted cauliflower
Tonight the spinach spirals, but I think I will also make rice and soup (with cauliflower and cabbage).

Ended up with big salad with olives, feta, and grilled chicken breast from the freezer stash. Tater tots for good measure.

Ok so I ended up making grilled cheese and apple sauce. My daughter has her church class on Wednesdays so I try to have leftovers or something quick on these nights. Tomorrow is grocery shopping day so the fridge is scarce.

Tonight is pizza with fig preserves, manchego, and proscuitto. I will roast some Brussels sprouts as well.

Flu has stricken our house - Little Man a touch earlier this week, but it's knocked me out, naturally. As per usual, husband remains largely unscathed. For lunch today I was adventurous (i.e. cavalier and stupid) and ate some chili over noodles and that did not work out well.

So husband is planning to grab a sandwich before he leaves for work, Little Man will likely get a macaroni and cheese cup and some fruit, and I'm thinking something serious bland for myself. Buttered noodles with salt and pepper? Perhaps a plain baked potato? We'll have to see how the evening unfolds. A fresh cup of tea with honey is in the cards imminently though.
