    I think some of these sound wonderful, but my boyfriend would not eat half of this. He has such a weird relationship with food planning ahead gives me more stress than its worth. Any tips on how to do a menu when you live with someone picky

    don't tell him that you're being clever and planning menus! LOL! I'm serious! you know what he likes, so go ahead and plan. this way you have the ingredients ahead of time and there's no mad dash to the store for something or calling the pizza place. when reviewing my refrigerator contents, I realized that I had some dressings leftover from the past month that I really needed to use, so I firmly decided that this was a salad week. I had just the right amount of chicken leftover from last week for today's salad and I bought the fixin's for the rest. in addition, I checked the mark-down bin and was able to buy some shrimp for $3 which I promptly put in the freezer until Thursday. the 'fresh fixins' were marked down too so I'm using them first

    it's a 'pretty' potato salad that a friend that's a baseball fan named. I just called it 'layered' but we were having a cookout, I brought my salad and after the 7th inning everything was ready to eat here's my recipe...
    7th Inning Stretch Layered Potato Salad
    2 eggs
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/4 cup white wine vinegar
    1 cup mayonnaise
    1 tbs yellow mustard
    1 tsp salt
    2 lb unpeeled russet potatoes
    2 cups thinly sliced celery
    1 cup thinly sliced halved red onion
    6 hard-cooked eggs, cut into wedges
    1/4 cup sliced green onions
    2 tbs roasted salted shelled sunflower seeds
    Whisk eggs and sugar in medium saucepan. Whisk in vinegar and 2 tbs water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil 4 minutes or until thickened, stirring constantly. Pour into medium bowl. Whisk in mayonnaise, mustard and salt. Refrigerate until well-chilled. Meanwhile, cook potatoes in large saucepan of simmering water over medium to medium-low heat 20 minutes or until just tender when pierced with a knife. Drain. Cool. Peel. Cut into 1-inch pieces. Layer potatoes, celery, red onion, eggs, dressing, green onions and sunflower seeds in large clear bowl.
    think you'll try it?
