Pork Stroganoff with Three Mustards

My friend Marion gave me this recipe and I love it. It's quick, easy and tasty. I like it over basmati rice with a veg on the side.

Classic Lasagna

My friend Whitney made lasagna for my birthday dinner back in October and it was delicious. When she wanted to take me to lunch as a thank you for doing her a favor this spring, I asked if she could make me some lasagna instead. I love me some lasagna but hate making it because there are so many steps. She was happy to do it and I was over the moon. I ate lasagna three meals a day until it was gone.

Whitney found the recipe from an article in the Seattle Times. The recipe has reigned as the most popular recipe on AllRecipes.com for more than a decade.

Summer Picnic Sandwich

After college I went to Europe with two friends and whenever we took the trains we would always end up buying these sandwiches from those little carts that pass through. I have been making them at home ever since. These are perfect for a summer picnic or kids lunches if you want to change it up a bit. I have several friends hooked on these now too. So good.

Pretzel roll *

Slice the roll in half. Butter one side and throw in some sliced salami. Close and eat. Simple as that.

* If you live in Seattle, you can get pretzel rolls at PCC.
