Italian Week (Jan 24)

Our Arganica order for this week brought us some pizza dough and fresh roasted garlic linguini and some organic cremini mushrooms.

Our menu for the week revolved around using those ingredients - naturally a pizza (Jon usually prefers to make his own dough, but that's time consuming and very messy), a shrimp scampi with the linguini, sauteed mushrooms, and creative leftover-ing.

Menu for Week of November 15th

This week was Indian week. We had a bottle of pre-made "Korma" sauce to use up. As it turns out, paneer is very difficult to find in DC. Yes (the organic market near our house) used to carry it, as (I think) did Harris Teeter. No such luck this time. Had to make a special trip to Whole Foods, only to pay $9 (!) for a box of paneer.

Monday - Navartan Korma (vegetable Korma - with cauliflower, peas, carrots, and potato)

Tuesday - invited our friends over for leftover Borscht and Kale

Wednesday - Shahi Paneer

Thursday - Leftover Shahi Paneer and Navartan Korma

Menu for Week of November 8th

This week was another shot at a "Fall Harvest" menu. Unfortunately, a lot of our dishes just didn't turn out that great. We continue to struggle to find recipes for pumpkins that don't involve pies or ravioli (which we've already done).

Sunday - Roast Chicken with Roast Pumpkin

Monday - Buffalo Steak with Brussel Sprouts

Tuesday - Big Salad with Pumpkin French Fries

Wednesday - Steelhead Salmon (trout) with Lemon/Butter/Rosemary Sauce, with Kale and Brussel Sprouts

Thursday - Pumpkin Ravioli with Broccoli and Green Salad

Friday - Out to celebrate Jon's last day at YSA!

Pumpkins!

The local market has a ton of wonderful pumpkins that we're trying out recipes with. This week was the warty "Galeuse d'Eysines," which I think will get turned into something sweet (though the pumpkin fries weren't half bad).

Menu for Week of October 31

We have peppers... lots of peppers. And winter is coming soon. Mexican week!!

Sunday - Grilling (admittedly non-Mexican)

Monday - Both out

Tuesday - Chile Frittata Casserole with Enchilada Sauce

Wednesday - Shrimp Tacos with Salsa Verde

Thursday - leftover Chili Frittata Casserole

Friday - Beef Tacos

Menu for Week of October 25

Plan for this week was a bit haphazard, but here goes:

Sunday - [[http://audreyandjon.com/blog/20091025/another-great-community-event-pc-market|Potluck Pig Roast at P&C Market]]

Monday - Chili (made on Sunday by Jon) + cole slaw

Tuesday - Big Salad + Baked Sweet Potatoes

Wednesday - EBLfgT (aka Egg, Bacon, Lettuce, and fried green Tomato) sandwiches + cole slaw

Thursday - Gnocci with Tomato Cream sauce

Friday - Jake's B-day celebration in the 'hood

Menu week of 18 October

This week we took advantage of the first fall crops to have a harvest-focused menu. We had thought ahead a little and bought some of the staples we'd need at Harris Teeter the week before. So we had no need to go to Safeway, and bought everything for the week at Eastern Market.

Kitchen World War II

Our actual plan was to deal with the encroaching fall items (like beets) and to celebrate the last of the summer produce (tomatoes). Throw in a 4-day trip to Texas, a 3-day super-busy conference for Jon, and a desire to eat down some of the leftovers in the freezer as well, and a very ... diverse menu comes out.

Menu for the week of October 5 (Allied Forces)

Weekend - American Grill

Monday: Russian Borscht

Tuesday: English (ish) Guinness Cottage Pie

Califood week

This week we're doing Californian-ish food - sushi, fish tacos, bagels and lox, and a repeat of the brick chicken.

Kinda-Healthy Southern Week

Crabmeat Remick with artichoke -- we used a combination of canned and fake crabmeat. It might've been better with fresh lump crabmeat, but not actually worth it.
