This week’s menu swap is hosted by Gluten Free Mommy and the ingredient is lemon! The ironic thing is I used about a dozen lemons in last week’s menu. I was in a lemon mood and ate most of the 8×8 pan of double lemon bars myself over the week.
Sunday: Wales, home of the leek
Leek Potato soup with tarragon
Trout Choucroute from March Gourmet mag – perhaps. I will be subbing Artic Char. I am not sure about fish and sauerkraut. Sides will be broccoli, maybe in casserole form, and polenta. Edited to add – this is definitely a dish that we will not, repeat not be making again. The fish itself was tasty, but the rest of the dish was a sour flop. Even my polenta experiment didn’t work the way I planned. Oh well.
Boti Gosht with grass fed beef and lemon rice, dal (maybe), bajji (onion fritters with chickpeas) and green mango salad
Wednesday: New Mexican
Tamales with red chile sauce
Thursday: All American
Mac and cheese with a green salad
Friday: Southwest fusion
White Chicken Chili loaded with green chiles and creamy cornbread. Since my bf won’t eat beans, I will be pureeing them in a known attempt to disguise them and he will see if he can get over his psychological bean burden. Wish me luck!
