Weekly Menu for 2-23-2015

IMG_4802So I had a batch of peanut butter cookie dough balls in the freezer and this week I baked them on two different days. I had trouble getting them to bake correctly. Anybody have any experience baking frozen dough balls? Should I have thawed them first? Used a lower temperature? The bottoms were burning before they were done in the middles.

Pretty typical menu this week. Sunday is a family get together. I don’t yet know if it will be potluck or not so I’m tentatively putting down what I will bring if it is.

I do want to attempt sourdough biscuits again. I made them once and they were dry bricks. Any tips for me?

Monday: Sweet and Sour Pork (More with Less p 177), Rice, Tahini Carrots, Sugar Peas

Tuesday: Sloppy Joes on Buttermilk Rolls, Corn, Green Beans
