Watching Gustav and Menu Planning...

We've been watching Hurricane Gustav... looking to see if he'll turn or stay on his current path. So far, it looks like we are out of the 'worry zone'. It's been very breezy all day but not too much rain - I guess that will come in later. Yes, hurricane season in Hurricane Alley. We are here.

This week is a very light week as far as cooking goes. My birthday is this week so I get treated to lots of meals out of the kitchen! ;)
Sunday~ out with hubby to a fave local spot
Monday~ Labor Day Holiday - hotdogs and baked beans, probably from inside because we're expecting lots of tropical moisture....
Tuesday~ Beef stroganoff over egg noodles, mushrooms, salad, broccoli
Wednesday~ my birthday - out to eat here.... ever had fried pickles???
Thursday~ Loaded potatoes and tossed salad
Friday~ jewelry party for the girls... finger foods (the boys will go somewhere else!!)
Saturday~ Empanadas (first time with this recipe - I'll be using ground beef instead of turkey)
Be sure to visit Organized Junkie for inspiring menus!!!

When we lived in Louisiana, we weren't too far from a Cock o the Walk & I loved the fried pickles and cornbread. Yum. Now I'm just going to have to make cornbread to go with our turkey & rice for dinner.

And I'm spending my holiday watching Gustav's path on the Weather Channel to keep an eye on family still in the Bayou State.

Happy birthday! I've had fried pickles only once before and thought they were delicious - hope you enjoy them!

your restaurant choice looks yummy, and familiar. It is possible that I have been there before.
Happy Birthday!
