This week’s ingredient is almonds and the menu swap is hosted by Kimberly at Living Free. I was so busy yesterday that I didn’t have time to finish my blog for this week’s menu. So I am a bit late to the party. I will see if I can fit some almonds in somewhere. I often have a bag of them in the car with me while traveling.
Here’s what we are having this week:
Monday: Fettuccine Alfredo with pancetta and chives – we had that Monday night and it is so rich and decadent that I can only justify it once a year. Luckily it was cold and rainy.
Tuesday:Vietnamese chicken pho with homemade pho broth.
Wednesday: Pizza – I haven’t made pizza in months and am starting to crave it. Good ole pepperoni mushroom and onion pizza, with artichokes of course.
Thursday: Yakhni Ma’a Loubia – Lebanese Green been stew with grass fed beef – I went to the farmers market and low and behold they had those nice flat Romano green beans. The kind I tried to grow, except that I didn’t plant them when I found out I had ordered bush beans vs pole beans. My local Mid Eastern restaurant down the road makes a great green bean stew and every once in a while I have a craving. Loaded with green beans and tomatoes, it is healthy comfort food, esp with a side of Hashwi!
Friday: White pork chile – I have more pork than chicken and the new piggies will be in our freezer sooner than I think – I know, usually it is white chicken chile. I will have to hold the beans back and serve them separately or my guy won’t eat the chile. In fact, I probably have to just call it something else altogether, like pork stew with green chiles (but not green chile stew).
My bf brought home even more cookbooks and is reading through them looking for interesting recipes. So we should have a couple of weeks worth of plans soon.
