Weekly Menu 1/19 - 1/24/09

Are we done with this cold yet?! Seriously we were hitting -40 F with windchill this past week. 
Snow Day
I know, what do I expect living in Minnesota. It was a great week for staying inside & getting lots of crafting done & cooking some good meals. This week should be a little less harsh, hopefully...Chicken Tagine with Chickpeas - From A Platter of Figs
Roasted Red Pepper & Black Bean Soup
French Bread Pizza - With our own French bread & homemade mozzarella
Pork Loin with Mostarda di Frutta
Ziti with Skillet-Roasted Root Vegetables - From Bon Appétit

For this week's cupcake I'm planning a little tropical twist to warm things up with a Pineapple Cupcake.
Last Monday I talked about the Minneapolis hamburger specialty, the Ju(i)cy Lucy. This weekend we went over to The Blue Door Pub in St. Paul to try their gourmet take on these yummy stuffed burgers, the Blucy#18 - The Luau Blucy
I had the Luau Blucy. A burger stuffed with mozzarella & pineapple then topped with Canadian bacon. Throw in a side od beer battered green beans & doesn't that look decadent.
The Cajun Blucy
Matt had the Cajun Blucy which was stuffed with pepper jack cheese & jalapeno. We were tempted by so many of their Minnesota State Fair style sides, fried Spam bites, fried cheese curds & fried pickles (yeah we like our food fried here). We'll definitely be heading back to the Blue Door to try the rest of their nine Blucys.

I love this week menu. Chicken tagine sounds good, so does the other.

Those burgers look so good, especially with the beer battered green beans!

Yum, the very fresh ((fresh bread, fresh cheese--you gotta make fresh sauce!)) sounds lovely.

Oh, that cold sounds horrible, but the snow sure is beautiful. I can't wait for the pizza! Yum!

the first person to stuff a burger with cheese deserves an award of some kind. :)

I SO relate to the cold temperatures. And if it's possible, looking at the top photo (gorgeous!) made me feel colder. Literally. Like a chill went down my spine. Hang in there---the Midwest is bound to recover (we hope!).

Those burgers sound awesome! I might have to try making some up at home!

That cheese oozing out of the 2nd burger looks to die for.

I feel your pain with the weather. It's about -20 (celcius) here today.

Beer battered beans? What a brilliant idea! And both burgers look brilliant.
