In honor of Election week and all the nationalities that make up this nation, I bring you an election week menu with cuisine from around our nation. I guess that really isn’t any different from what I normally do, is it?
This week’s menu swap host is Angela from Angela’s Kitchen, so pop over to her blog and see the cute Halloween photos and all the great menus. The ingredient this week is greens. It must be the Southern in me as I love greens!
Saturday: Country Italian: Pork braised in milk, rosemary and garlic
Sunday: All American: Pheasant and wild mushroom pot pie – my bro and fam are in town and he is whipping this one up, I am typing up my menu plan while he cooks.
Monday: American Italian: Spaghetti and meat sauce, garlic bread and salad
Tuesday: Hungarian: Chicken Paprikash (with loads of smoked paprika) with rice or spaetzle if I have time, and a side of collard greens cooked nice and slow with garlic – perfect timing on the ingredient of the week as I need to harvest the collard greens in the garden.
Wednesday: Mexican: Fish tacos with guacamole and salsa, maybe some refried beans for me too.
Thursday: Chinese: Black and Szechuan pepper chicken with snow peas
Friday: On the road up North for the weekend to assist in the butchering and packaging of our piggies Parma and Speck (see pics on flickr to the right).
Don’t forget to vote on Tuesday! Change is on the way! Thanks goodness…….!!!! I will be following all you facebookers and twitterers tomorrow night while the election results roll in. Eventually I will get the twitter linked to my blog, when my darling tech guy remembers and has time. Perhaps tomorrow while we wait in line to vote – if they have wifi that is.
