Monday/4-Mar-13: Looks like I Heart Cooking Clubs will close down after Madhur Jaffrey finishes in March unless someone comes forward to host it. Not me. Will be back to cooking from old cookbooks for me.
Really didn't feel like cooking tonight. Went out looking for a nearby open restaurant, unsuccessfully. Came home and made a couple of omelets and warmed the leftover risotto. That was all. Will need to get serious about cooking tomorrow.
Tuesday/5-Mar-13: Finally got the Fennel, Pernod, and Broccoli Pie (web) made for dinner tonight. Used a single crust from the freezer rather than making the one here. Mostly Parmesan, some hollandse geitenkaas for the cheese. Pretty good, not wonderful. Did like the way the flavors of the fennel, broccoli, and peas combined. Maybe in some kind of a salad this would be good.
Wednesday/6-Mar-13: Meal for IHCC tonight, then off to the movies.
Thursday/7-Mar-13: Ed feeling poorly today and asked for chicken soup for dinner. So I made chicken noodle with mushrooms and carrots. It was good. He drank the broth and left the good stuff. Oh well. (Does chicken soup with no chicken meat in it count as vegetarian? It does if you're Ken Hom, but I suppose not.)
Friday/8-Mar-13: Yogurt on overday. The two cabinets left and right of the sink are now on the wall to the left of the stove. Makes it a bit tight getting into the room but will do while their wall is being refurbished. The kitchen guy came to measure for the sink and peninsula counters. Now we await the devis.
Used one of the turkey breasts that I didn't cook at Thanksgiving to make a turkey roll. Filled with a paste of onion, garlic, lime zest, lime juice, cumin, oregano, and chili powder. Poured cider over it for cooking. Pretty good. Made a pretty good salad of the noodles/shroom/carrots left from yesterday's soup, plus some leftover rice, plus some defrosted peas, plus some chopped parsley, all with a lime juicy vinaigrette.
Saturday/9-Mar-13: Made Herb Salt, same old recipe from Art, also in my Handy Book. For lunch we ate the rest of the broccoli pie, which didn't sit well with either of our touchy tummies. We were supposed to go out this evening, but Ed was tired after more kitchen demolition work and I just didn't feel like it. So we sat outside to read for a while, then had our usual lunch fruit for dinner.
Sunday/10-Mar-13: For lunch, I halved two avocados, mushed up the innards a bit to enlarge the hole, broke an egg into each, S&Ped, then baked for about 20min. Pretty good actually, especially with a dollop of soft goat cheese on top. For dinner we had a big salad.
Yogurt on overnight.
