Monday I made crabcakes. The men had thinly sliced beef on onion rolls with thinly sliced onions.
I had crabcakes that I had made from scratch. This was the first time I've ever tried to do this. I'm happy to say it was quite easy, and now it's another dish that I will no longer order and restaurants because I can make it home. Gpa P didn't care for them (more for me!!)
I chopped green onion (garden) peppers and shallots (farmers market organic share)
sautéed in olive oil
Can of crab leg meat. Cheaper than lump. 16 ounce at BJ's warehouse club for $6.99 after coupon
egg (I would do 2 in the future) Dijon mustard, worstershire sauce, seafood seasoning (Bays)
Mix very well
Panko and more bays
before baking. I think an additional egg would have made them hold their shape better, and I would have not been so nervous about shaking off excess panko coating. Drizzled with EVOO and baked at 400 for 20 minutes
Yummo. I added a Tbsp of Roasted Garlic Aioli (another gift from last year)
Tuesday we had panko crusted chicken cutlets (DH has me buy breasts and he cuts and pounds) with white buttered rice and carrots/green beans.
Wednesday (yesterday) we had leftovers
Today (Thursday) will be meatballs/sauce and pasta. I froze a container of sauce with three meatballs for me and DH on a day it's just us and we don't have time to cook. I also made a pumpkin streusel from a Williams Sonoma gift received last year. It's not gluten free, but I did taste it. Very rich (two whole sticks of butter!) I will have spaghetti squash with my meatball.
Tomorrow will be whatever is left (and there really isn't much) Hopefully some pasta and meatballs.
For lunches this week GPA P and I had leftovers (I had all the crabcakes but the one that he tried) I also made a small meatloaf that the men of been snacking on after I made 17 meatballs.
DH get's lunch at the café at his temp job. He also packs peanuts and beef jerky. Breakfasts have been oatmeal, cereal, Johnsonville turkey breakfast sausages (my new favorite) and GPa has had his 5 eggs twice (yes, 10 eggs one week, it's a losing battle. Oh, and one each time for his dog.)
