Dinner Menu

Last week I used sister's food blog as inspiration for our dinner menu.

I cooked the beef and broccoli stir fry one night.

Chicken delight was dinner the next night, and it was wonderful. I don't know why I haven't made this before. I over ate.

Meatball subs were also on the menu.

I also made these brownies for Bible study last Monday, but one of the pans did not get eaten. So that means I got to eat this batch. I do not remember where I got this recipe, so if I copied it from you, I'm sorry.


8 oz semi sweet chocolate
1 stick of butter
3/4 cup of sugar
3 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
3/4 to 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350, grease and flour pan.
Melt chocolate with butter in double boiler until smooth.
With electric mixer, beat sugar with eggs and salt until thick.
Stir in vanilla and flour.
Stir in chocolate and butter mixture.
Stir in chips.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

This is the damage I did in just 2 days. They are good brownies.

I am guilty of reading blogs or magazines and liking a recipe that I never end up cooking.

So if you are in a dinner rut like I was, write down the recipes you like as you see them. Then actually cook them. It never hurts to experiment in the kitchen.

Now I'm off to make this week's menu. What should I have?

  1. Lucy -- your photos are so enticing. I'm glad you're having a little time to cook.

    And Millie's photos (on FB) are the cutest. Her smile is "to die for." I hope she's sleeping and that you are getting some sleep too.
