This week in the kitchen

Monday/22-Apr-13: Dinner was Spinach, Mushroom, and Feta Crustless Quiche (web), a recipe I picked up from who knows where fairly recently. Good it was. Followed by a salad and a dog walk.

Tuesday/23-Apr-13: Last week Ed said he'd like to demolish a bird for dinner. So tonight there was  a half dose (one bird) of Roasted Guinea Hens with Whole-Grain Mustard and Herbs (web). This include potatoes, shallots, and garlic roasted along with the bird and was pretty good; indeed, Ed did a good job of demolishing. Served with the last bit of broccoli, steamed then sautéed with some mushroom and garlic. Good stuff.

Wednesday/24-Apr-13: Shopping today.

Dinner was a half dose of Fast Fish Fry (web), really simple, not bad. Fish coated with mayo and rolled in crushed pretzels mixed with Old Bay, then sautéed. Any coating could be used, and maybe cooked in the oven or under the grill. Served with a small dose of Mama's Garlic Coleslaw (MC) and Easy Hush Puppies (CL90, p58; MC). Some little store-bought rice puddings ("like grandma made") for dessert.

Yogurt on overnight.

Thursday/25-Apr-13: Off to a quiz tonight. Nothing happening in the kitchen.

Friday/26-Apr-13: IHCC time again. With the yummy stew, I served Spicy Cucumber Wedges (MJ1, p172)—which I make so often, it probably ought to go in my Handy Book—and a pair of storebought naan.. And double-chocolate mini-magnums for dessert.

Saturday/27-Apr-13: Dinner was Slow-Cooker Red Curry Pulled-Pork Sandwiches (web; cookbooker). Easy and yummy.

Sunday/28-Apr-13: Yogurt on overday,

Dinner was Sweet and Spicy Vegetable Pasta (MC), a moldy-oldy recipe. Still good. Lots of veggies (broccoli, red bell pepper, carrots, onion, garlic) in a sauce of yogurt, ricotta, sour cream, coarse mustard with a dab of honey.

Progress on goals
This week: #1 IHCC/COOKBOOKS: yes, #2 VEG/FISH: 4
This month: #3 PASTA: yes, #4 BREAD: no
