What should I make

I am trying to decide between two recipes to make next week and I am having trouble. Since this happens way too often, I figured I'd make a thread.

This week's decision is between 2 recipes in Stanley Tucci's cookbook:

Milanese Casserole which is basically a big stew with the following:
- Onions
- Shallots
- Bacon
- Parsley
- Paprika
- Bay leaves
- Cabbage
- Carrots
- Beef short ribs
- Sweet Sausage
- Broth
- Potatoes

OR

Beef Tenderloin with Prosciutto with the following:
- Carrots
- Celery
- Beef Tenderloin
- Dijon mustard
- Rosemary
- Sage
- Prosciutto
- Red wine
- Broth

Both meats are on sale at the grocery store. I've never made a *good* tenderloin. And I've never ever made anything with short ribs. Both sound delicious!

Tenderloin, but plan on at least doubling the wine. Not in the recipe, the extra goes in the cook.

Oh please. Once the bottle is open, the bottle is emptied

Someone gave me a special stopper for recorking wine bottles. I laughed and laughed and laughed and laughed....

I've got one, too! It makes it so that you don't spill between glass fill ups for me

Ok, so I am going to make the tenderloin this week. There's asparagus on sale, too, so I can serve that with it.

Asparagus will be on sale every week for the next two months. For conventional, you shouldn't be paying more than a buck/lb now.

**kicks off work shoes**

I would've voted the tenderloin too

The lowest it goes here is 1.99 - I have never seen it lower. I have even seen organic go to 1.99 at Earth Fare.

I can't wait to make the tenderloin!! I'm still buying the short ribs, though. I'll make that the next week.

Oddly, I've never noticed a difference. I think because I drink so much water, maybe?

There are some people without the "asparagus pee" gene.

I was not aware there was one. I am ok if I am missing it. I don't need to smell the asparagus pee

You really don't.

I've got the gene that makes goat cheese taste/smell like gym socks that have been siiting, wet, at the bottom of a hamper for a week.


Cilantro is fine for me.

Cilantro tastes like soap, but soap I don't mind eating

You had your mouth washed out with soap so many times you like it now?
Then you'll like these.
