I’ve been told that if you get lost in the woods in Western Oregon, it’s the chill from the wet that will kill you- even as the temperatures remain in the 40′s and 50′s. Therefore, the number one safety item to carry with you is a black plastic garbage bag to use as a poncho (number 2 is a whistle).
Don’t say there’s never any important information here at An Oregon Cottage!
What does this have to do with my menu? Warm, comforting food is in order.
That, and it’s no time to be planning a picnic in the woods, I guess.
Thursday- Baked chicken legs (marinated in a Moroccan sauce I was gifted), Oven-Baked Risotto, Broccoli & Garbanzo bean salad (just what it sounds like, mixed with grated Parmesan and a vinaigrette, with maybe a few chopped pickled peppers thrown in).
Friday- Homemade pizza (I’ve got some cheese sticks I’m going to roll in the crust to make a cheese-crust pizza, which my kids will love!), carrots & celery
Saturday- (guests) Big pot of slow-cooker chili made with leftover pulled pork, ground meat, corn, and beans; salad, cornbread with honey-butter, cookie plate (using frozen goodies from Christmas!).
