This week in the kitchen

Monday/6-May-13: Yesterday at a plant fair, we bought two eggplant plants. Today the eggplant seeds are sprouting. Geesh.

Yogurt on overday.

Slow starting Monday. I went off to the grocery to do some shopping since Wednesday and Thursday are holidays. Dinner was Skewered Chicken (a moldy-oldy recipe from the green book) done on the bbq, accompanied by Mama's Garlic Coleslaw (MC) and Baked Eggplant Slices (TooMany, p114). Followed by Double Boiler Bread Pudding (MC), three of us (mostly Ed and Bill) finished it all,

Tuesday/7-May-13: Fish and chips for dinner. Nothing happening in our kitchen,

Wednesday/8-May-13: Had a super lunch out today. Nothing happening in the kitchen this evening.

Thursday/9-May-13: Waved BIll off at the train station today.

Dinner was a double dose of Spaghetti with Fried Eggs and Pangritata for One (MC). I'm doing this a bit different from the recipe, and could be more different still, but it's still a nice, satisfying pasta dish. As a go-with there was an Ottolenghi salad. For afters we had a bit of Camembert.

Yogurt on overnight.

Friday/10-May-13: Dinner was Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche with a Brown Rice Crust (web), which turned out pretty good. And a salad. That was all.

Saturday/11-May-13: Dinner was Eggplant Steak with Chickpeas, Roasted Red Bell Peppers, Feta, and Olives (MC), an old favorite. Served with rice. Then finished off the Camembert for afters. And had some squares of Lindt chocolate to accompany our evening dogwalk.

Sunday/12-May-13: A lazy day in the kitchen. Had the rest of the broccoli quiche-y thing, which held up well to reheating. Followed by a big salad. Then some double-chocolate mini magnums.

Yogurt and ABM bread (of the "Authentic French" sort) on overnight.

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