notes: This recipe makes a big batch - we're having round 2 tonight for supper. I have never told you about our pickled lemons! It's a recipe from Julie Sahni. They are fermented and keep in a glass jar on the counter for months - years, I bet. (I think they freak my extended family out a little bit). We adore these pickled lemons and have to limit ourselves to one or two at a time because they are very salty.
Tuesday: Back-yard dandelion with hot bacon dressing. Roasted potatoes. Sour cherry cobbler. Vanilla ice cream.
notes: I like to have dessert with light meals. I also baked bread and made yogurt today.
Wednesday: My husband made two stir fries: one with bok choy and radish tops over rice, the other with cabbage, carrots, and peas over noodles.
notes: My husband usually cooks on the nights I get home from my job minutes before dinner. He is the stir-fry king.
Thursday: supper club (a fabulous pumpkin lasagna with mushrooms - I'm getting the recipe)
notes: I love to cook, but I also love the extra hour or two on nights I don't cook. I sewed instead.
|Finished this French press cosy for my etsy shop!|
Friday: My husband and I had dinner out at one of my favorite restaurants to celebrate a friend's birthday. At home with grandparents, the kids ate black-eyed peas, corn muffins with honey, and dandelion with hot bacon dressing.
notes: Am I really an introvert? Or maybe I just have wonderful friends.
Saturday: Southwestern Corn Chowder (Simply in Season) made with roasted corn from last summer's corn roast. Avocado. Cilantro. Cheese quesadillas. Salsa from the Bowmans.
notes: It was a rainy day and the soup was perfect. . . .but wow, I thought I made a big batch and I only have a pint left over. I used up a lot of freezer food to make this meal, though. I also made bagels today.
Sunday: Make-Ahead Chicken Casserole. Cranberry applesauce. Green salad with vinaigrette.
notes: I repeated the menu from the February fundraising meal. A comforting meal with an interlude to help friends who got a flat tire in front of our house.
