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!
