Cooking: Menu Week Ending February 19

Valentine's Day is not the day to eat in a restaurant. But I do not want to cook all day. Sunday, I am baking lots of potatoes so whipping up twice baked potatoes will be very easy. Valentine's dinner will be as simple as grilling a steak, roasting asparagus and thoroughly heating my potatoes. It should take me less than 30 minutes to complete, less time than waiting for a table.

I am still painting. The flower beds need another quick clean up and juggling more wedding planning, a "man" shower next week, classes to prep and teaching. On Friday, our weekly night for entertaining, my baked potatoes from Sunday will also be used in a baked potato salad - a special treat filled with cheddar cheese, bacon and a sour cream chive dressing. Pork butt in the slow cooker will make tender BBQ pulled pork sandwiches with onion flavored buns. All in all a power packed menu with lots of flavor.
