Menu of the week: Watercress

This week’s menu swap is hosted by Cooking and Uncooking.  Since I have no watercress and am not a huge fan of it, I will just mention that I tried to grow some wild water cress last year.  It was pretty hot and bitter and didn’t live long.  So, no watercress right now unless my store suddenly stocks it.  If it does, I will use in in a salad.

Saturday:

Vietnamese lunch: Chicken pho – lots of Thai basil left from last week and the cilantro and mint need to be harvested.

Dinner: Over at a friends for fun!

Sunday:  Thai chicken bamboo curry with basil and coconut milk, fresh spring rolls with mint,dill, cilantro, basil and shrimp.

Monday: Mexican Jalisco

Carne en su Jugo, charred green onions, salsa and chips

Tuesday: Italian bistro

Grilled scallops with angel hair pasta and fresh herb pesto, garden salad

Wednesday:South American

Chimichurri steaks and mini arepas with avocado crema and maybe shrimp ceviche

Thursday :  On the road North for the Fourth

Friday:  Up North at the farm :Strawberries, pontooning, Lake Michigan and grilling oh, and the Polka Fest!
