I did make the tagine. Used this recipe. Did not use an actual tagine. The preserved lemons were yummy but the tagine was only okay. The chicken was very tender and Biscuit liked it but I found it a little bit blah. Oh well, we're having it again, it only used one lemon.
Feeling frugal, bought a whole chicken for the tagine and chopped it into parts. I used the backbone and other bits to make a batch of chicken stock which I froze. I usually freeze in mason jars without incident but I guess I usually refridgerate before freezing. Needless to say two out of three jars broke. Luckily they broke after it was mostly frozen so I didn't have a huge mess and I actually still used the broth for risotto.
Twice now I've made the Pioneer Woman's "Best Lasagna Ever" for company. Last time I found it a little salty but as lasagna goes it's pretty easy and yummy and does use ingredients you probably have on hand. I used only 1 lb of ground beef and 1 lb of sausage (one time, Jimmy Dean, one time Italian sausage in casing--I think the Jimmy Dean was better).
As mentioned previously Biscuit and I made Smitten Kitchen's Whole Lemon Tart. I loved it. I think it was even better as leftovers the next day. Mr. H does not like lemon desserts so I got to eat it all. I didn't have a tart pan so made it in an 8 inch cake pan and it worked just fine (but baked an extra 10 minutes).
For Valentine's Day I bought Mr. H a dry aged, bone in rib eye steak at the Meat Lab. It was rather expensive but, apparently, worth every bite. Sorry, vegetarian readers :)
