Dora the Explorer-The Next Food Network Star or…what to watch on Thursday nights

My kids have tomorrow off school, so that puts a jump start on my weekend planning.  Starting with the most IMPORTANT question…what are we going to EAT!?!?!?!  Since the move I have become an expert at weekday menu planning, but if you live in the Prekel household the weekends are reserved for watching Food Network and trying anything that looks remotely edible.  Not much planning involved because Mike wants to make what he wants to make right NOW, which involves about 17 trips to the grocery store over a two day span.  But…we eat some pretty yummy food, so I shant complain.

Last week for Valentines we tried our hand at making sushi at home. Mike has always wanted to so I bought him all the stuff he needed for V Day.  And when I say we I mean he, while I sat and watched and cleaned up after him, like usual.  Here is the outcome.

It was SUPER tasty, but I am all sushied out for a while.  This weekend I am hoping to try Aarti’s Indian Omelet for breakfast Saturday morning and Marcela Valladolid’s Veracruz-Style Tilapia for dinner on Saturday night.  If you aren’t a crazy Food Network stalker like we are and do not know who Marcela Valladolid is…she is what Dora the Explorer will be like in 15 years.  Not kidding. Looks, sound and ACTS like Dora.  And on Sunday I am going to have Paula Deen’s Beef Stroganoff. I love it. And because I already know I love it I have posted it in our favorite recipes section to the right.  If the two new recipes above make the cut I will add them as well, but I haven’t had a bad one yet from either of these ladies.  If any of you decide to try these this weekend, let me know what your thoughts are and if you made any changes or will in the future!

However, before I can embark on the scrumpdidiliumptiousness that is the weekend-o-food, its TV night baby!  Vampire Diaries, Greys, Private Practice, The Office, Big Bang Theory, Outsourced…and thats just what I DVR!  And they say Thursday nights are dying. Puhleez.
