Menu of the Week Dec 28th Leftovers

M-elle of Cooking and Uncooking is the host for this week’s menu swap and the theme is leftovers.  While I am not a big fan of leftovers (I usually eat them for lunch if we have some) I do have some plans for leftovers this week.  Swing on over to her site to see what everyone else is cooking this week.

Sunday:  Back from the great white North and we needed something spicy: Thai green curry with pork, bamboo shoots and fresh Thai basil from the indoor garden pot.

Monday: Italian wedding soup – using leftover meatballs that I made and froze last week and kale since my store doesn’t carry curly endive.  Cold and windy and the snow melted – time for soup!

Tuesday: Grilled Greek kabobs (using our pork) with a feta, olive and cucumber salad  with fresh herbs from the basement greenhouse.

Wednesday New Year’s eve  Shrimp scampi or Asian style hot pot/fondue. Undecided.  Just like our NYE plans.

Thursday: New Year’s day: Brunch: Mexican breakfast enchiladas with pinto beans, eggs and bacon from out pig, or maybe chorizo. Avocado slices on the side.

Dinner: bringing a dish to pass at a Hogmanny party (not sure what that is yet, but it happens on NYD) – Maybe mac and cheese jazzed up – comfort food for hangovers.

Friday: Deep Fry Friday debuts this week.  We will be testing fresh cut french fries and perhaps some gf breaded mini mozzarella balls and maybe chicken fingers – not sure, but I have all week to come up with ideas.  If you want to post your Deep Fry Friday menu, email me or leave a comment.  We will deep fry once a week for a month.

Saturday: Mexican Carne en su jugo with our freshly made bacon and using pork instead of beef – pork is good luck for the new year!
