Whats For Dinner Next Week 1-22-12

We have had unseasonable warm weather and we have been in the garden. We planted  225 Spring Onions in the past few days. We usually plant sometime in the last two weeks of January, then by March we are eating fresh green onions. I am sure glad you stopped by so we can sit down and take a break, sit out here on the Herb Garden patio with me and we will talk about next weeks menu, can you smell that rosemary bush?

  1. I love that you already have green onions planted. Makes me know spring is on the way. I can hardly wait for Pickle Pot time!

  2. Lovely menu, Pear Pocket looks great! Have a great day!

  3. Miz Helen-so sorry for not checking again to see if the linky showed up, I tried twice and three times, and they were giving me the same message to register for their site! Now, I can't link it going back to last Thursday, but at least it showed up on your list, of so many links with such delicious foods, and desserts!

    I'm drooling for all the most amazing foods you featured, the yeast rolls, the pear pocket, and the brussel sprouts, among several more totally incredible dishes!
    I can't wait to link up next Thursday, hope you are enjoying the weekend with at your friend's birthday event!
    Big hugs,

  5. Your menu sounds absolutely fabulous!!!

  6. Hi Miz Helen- Sounds like you are very organized to plan your meals. I used to do that, but got off that bandwagon. Today, I just throw meals together based on what ingredients I have.

    My brother would love to come to your house for some Banana Foster Ice Cream Cake. He Banana Foster, but it's one of those things nobody in our family makes anymore.

    Thank you for linking up to my party. I appreciate your visit and hope to see you again next week!

  7. I wish I was at your house this week...I would love to sit outside and smell the rosemary bush and chat about gardening...I'd surely linger long enough to get a dinner invite too! YUM! :) Thanks for sharing!

  8. Your menu looks awesome! {Your weather sounds wonderful, too!}
