Ok, fast and easy this week. I am a day late again posting this. This week’s host is Heart of Cooking and the ingredient is persimmons. Apparently they are in season somewhere, but since we are covered in snow and more snow already, it is definitely not in season here.
Monday: Indian: Dosas with coconut chutney, saag aloo and ground lamb korma
Tuesday: Green Chile Cheese fries – testing the Trader Joes green chiles vs the Whole Foods green chiles, both from a can. Quick and easy and then we are out to see a friend of ours play in a local bar of ours.
Wednesday: French: Scallops Gratin, using large scallops and GF bread crumbs and skipping the prosciutto as my pescatarian friend will be joining us for dinner. Veg to be determined Do stuffed twice baked potatoes count as a veg? They have lots of green onion and parsley in them!
Thursday: Italian American: Stuffed shells. I don’t know what I am going to stuff them with yet, but I know that I am craving a tomato based sauce.
Friday: Out on the town. First we are going to San Chez, a Spanish Tapas restaurant in Grand Rapids. They have a full allergen menu for each main allergen! Then we are heading to see one of my favorite folksy rocksy bands, Donna the Buffalo and then to the Hideout, a small brewery that has cider and mead too.
