Please critique this week's menu!

Hi Everyone, I'm back from vacation and ready to post my weekly meals. I'm sure you've missed me. :) To everyone with serious critiques, thank you! We just got back tonight, so it's simple sandwiches (cucumber and watercress) this evening. I'll be back to my usual cooking tomorrow. So:

Tuesday: Wild berry gazpacho, shrimp in green sauce, plantains with romesco drizzle

Wednesday: Kung-pao lamb in homemade chili sauce, steamed rice, baby bok choy, crab-stuffed egg rolls, homemade pork buns marinated in garlic barbecue sauce

Thursday: Chili dogs with yellow mustard and onions, homemade onion rings with cornmeal batter, avocado and black olive salad

Friday: Lightly fried squash blossoms in orange sauce, albondigas, mushroom-and-beef tongue tacos with tomatillo salsa, margaritas

Saturday: Dinner out - probably The Dutch

Sunday: I'm trying my hand at sushi for the first time! Probably eel, spicy scallop, and perhaps something easier like sweet potato. Dessert: Mocha mousse.

You must be as big as a house. I got heartburn just reading that!

Do you work OP? It sounds like most of the things would take up a big part of your day. Other than that it all sounds great

by Anonymousreply 307/16/2012

OP, you're a fattie right?

by Anonymousreply 407/16/2012

No, I'm not fat. But I do enjoy cooking!

Thursday's menu is likely to kill you both. If you survive, I hardly doubt you'll be up for beef tongue tacos.

by Anonymousreply 607/17/2012

It is just too precious for daily consumption.

hope you have some immodium handy

Your menus are too complex for me and don't contain enough salads or green veggies. I'm sure your BF is happy though!

Kung pao lamb?

by Anonymousreply 1007/17/2012

Less awful, but still highly misguided.

by Anonymousreply 1107/17/2012

This entire post is disgusting. You can probably see OP from space.

by Anonymousreply 1207/17/2012

That is the most deliciousEST menu yet!

by Anonymousreply 1307/17/2012

It always sounds so corny and even gauche when people describe something they cook as "homemade." What is the suggestion being made there?

by Anonymousreply 1407/17/2012

precious few vegetables in this precious menu.

by Anonymousreply 1507/17/2012

All your menus look good in theory, but I suspect the reason you are not fat is because you can't leave the toilet afterwards. Please tell us that your partner does other things for you.

Sweet potato sushi?

Don't be too sure, OP.

Only two word for that mess...PIZZA NIGHT!

Your menu is not healthy.

by Anonymousreply 2001/02/2013

Mocha mousse, after sushi? Why not just throw that dinner in the toilet because it's gonna wind up there fast enough.

You can use Campbell's soups as tasty marinades and sauces! Just open a can, add chicken and bake! Here is my menu for this week:

Monday: chicken breasts in Cream of Asparagus; Rice-a-Roni pilaf: Country Time lemonade.

Tuesday: chicken thighs in Cream of Celery; can of sweet peas: fresh Tang.

Wednesday: chicken breasts in Cream of Chicken with lemon slices! Fruit cocktail; diet Coke

Thursday: chicken legs in Tomato Soup AND Golden Mushroom; French's fried onion topping; Brisk Iced Tea

Friday: Leftovers!

I don't care for gazpacho, bok choy or olives! What's romesco?

by Anonymousreply 2401/02/2013

r23, for a fancy Sunday night dinner you could do chicken breasts with Uncle Ben's Long Grain & Wild Rice cooked in Cream of Mushroom soup. Make a baked Alaska or Pudding Striped Cake for dessert.

by Anonymousreply 2501/02/2013

R23, the only think missing is lime Jell-O mold for dessert.

by Anonymousreply 2601/03/2013

The crockpot thread has better food than OP's menu.

Where do you get squash blossoms in the dead of winter?

by Anonymousreply 2801/03/2013

I was wondering why the post was unsigned. Squash blossoms should be no problem in July.

by Anonymousreply 2901/03/2013

It is January 3rd where I live. I thought this was posted today. Someone must have bumped it from July.

Same here. That's really amazing.

Why not stuff the squash blossoms with cheese and jalapenos, crumb then fry.. Maybe fish tacos with lime dressing.. tongue doesn't sound very appealing.

Make a Fire and Ice cake!

Do people really bother with complicated meals every day/night? I'm single, but I dread what I would encounter if I moved in with someone else in these "foodie" food-obsessed times.

by Anonymousreply 3401/03/2013

Not me, R34. My partner and I usually just grill meat and have roasted vegetables or simple green salads with that. If we cook anything elaborate, it's on the weekend.

Not even the OP does complicated meals. He's the 2013 version of Umpy.

What happened to the New Year banquet?

by Anonymousreply 3701/08/2013

Blah, canned soups have that metal taste. Not even worth to just use for cooking.
