Take it away, Bad Horse’s Filly:
Every year around this time, one of my local grocers offers Cornish Game Hens in packages where they are cut in half. I decided I needed to do something with this idea, so the Valentine’s menu was born. When they are cut in half, it reduced cooking time enough for the recipe to be workable on a week night. Since Valentine’s falls on a Sunday this year, using whole game hens seems reasonable, too. Longer cooking time, but worth it. In case you’re feeling really ambitious, click here for JeffreyW’s wonderful stuffing recipe. And if you’re looking for a more elegant dessert for Valentine’s Day tomorrow I’ll repost the recipe for Raspberry-Chocolate Cupcakes in Raspberry Sauce.
I’ll be cooking this recipe again on Saturday, so check back for any tweaks I might have.
On the board tonight:
Cornish Game Hens w/Stuffing
Buttered Peas and Carrots
