Friday Foodstuffs- Comfort Food

I think I should stop calling my weekly menu planning "Friday Foodstuffs" because I never seem to actually get the post out on Friday. Oh well! I like alliteration so it's staying FF, even if it is a lie!!

Hands down the best meal last week was the Coconut Peanut Sauce Beef with Pineapple-Ciliantro Rice.  Holy Flavor, Batman!  That dish was divine!  The sauce would be great over pretty much any grilled meat, if you aren't a red meat sort of person.  But the rice...  Ooooh the rice.  You should make it RIGHT NOW.

Go ahead. I'll wait
See? Isn't it the best rice you've had in your life?

While your at it, go check out The Double Dipped Life. I'm going to stop making my own menu plans and just follow the ones she creates eat week!

This week I realized I need to actually read the recipes the night before so I'm prepared. Because I didn't do that, I was frantically thawing shrimp while trying not to burn onions for the Penne a la Betsy  (needed a kick, we added crushed red pepper) and I was browning a pork shoulder at 5:45 AM so I could start the Slower Cooker Barbecue before I left for work. 


Friday: Chana Masala (which I was supposed to make on Thursday but got a pizza instead).  It was great even without the corriander which apparently no grocery store in Savannah carries.  Grrr.


Sunday:  Grilled Sirloin Steaks with Baked Potatoes

Baked Fish With Orange Cilantro Sauce, Curried Roasted Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Tuesday: Shredded Beef (see Comments) Burriots

Wednesday: Chicken Peanut Curry

Thursday: Mulligatawny Soup

Question of the Week:
Last week was kinda crappy mentally and all I wanted to do was crawl into bed with some of my comfort foods.  Those emotions inspired this menu though I tried to avoid the comfort foods that would cause heart attacks.  What is your ultimate comfort food and why?
