Menu for the week of Feb 2

The theme this week was "Mediterranean coast" - so we had southern French, Italian, and Middle-Eastern dishes.

Monday - Gnocci in a cream truffle sauce. When I finalize the recipe for this, I'll post it. It's heart-stopping in at least two ways.

Tuesday - Spiced, braised (in beer) lamb sausage with hummus

Wednesday - mediterranean dip night with hummus, spicy hummus, tzatziki, and muhummara with pita.

Thus and Friday - Manicotti topped with fresh pesto

Inauguration Week Menu

We celebrated Inauguration Week with Hawaiian and Chicago foods. Yes, we were too wimpy to try to make Kenyan.

Sat - Hawaiian ceviche - Poke, Peruvian-style ceviche, and Poisson Cru

Sun - Miso glazed cod with wasabi mashed potatoes and miso soup (Hawaiian-ish)

Menu for the week of Jan 25, 2009

In order to maximize what we can buy locally, we shop on Saturday morning for as much of our food for the week as is reasonable, at the neighborhood farmer's (-ish) market. To make that work, we try to set up our menu for the week before (sometimes, during) our market run. I'll try to post our menus (with recipes where we have them!)

GapMinder (See the TED presentation) and Google now have motion charts - if you have time series, they have an awesome visualization tool.
