Foodie Friday

This week we found out our favorite corner frozen yogurt spot is going out of business in one month! Argh! So what did we do? We went there for dessert every night. Coupled with the delicous meals below, it looks like I'll be putting in some extra gym time this weekend!

Happy cooking (and eating)!

Rating Key:
Taste rated by Derek to eliminate cook's bias: 1 (wouldn't make again) to 5 (an eminent kitchen comeback)
Difficulty: 1 (could cook it while talking to a live-audience) to 5 (left the kitchen sweating)

Monday: Mushroom Marsala Pasta with Artichokes from Smitten Kitchen
Rating: 4
Difficulty: 2
Sides: salad
Tips: I couldn't find the recommended type of pasta so I used what I had on hand! It was still delicious

Tuesday: Chicken Prosciutto from Simply Recipes
Rating: another 6! Simply Recipes can't stay on Derek's scale
Difficulty: 2
Sides: Steamed green beans, salad, and homemade bread
Tips: Just a word of warning - the prosciutto really sticks together in the packaging!

Wednesday: Out for the night!

Thursday: Shaved Asparagus Pizza from Smitten Kitchen
Rating: 5
Difficulty: 1
Sides: salad
Tips: I swapped the Mozzarella cheese for Fontina since I had it on hand. I also added the leftover prosciutto from Tuesday's recipe and the addition took this recipe over the top!
