This week in the kitchen

Monday/16-Sep-13: Used up the rest of the lamb roast with a Frenchified Curried Lamb (Secrets, p225). I mean, who ever heard of curried lamb with red wine? It's good though. Served with some rice and some vaguely Indian green beans.

Tuesday/17-Sep-13: Today in the potager we discovered a ginormous zucchini that was hiding just two days ago. We think we'll just weigh it and then recycle it.

Dinner was a vegetarian casserole (MC 2BTried) that can be used with most veggies, zukes, broc, cauliflower, bsprouts, etc. So zucchini it was. And pretty good it was. Then a big salad. Then some vanilla ice cream with a splash of chocolate liqueur.

Yogurt on overnight.

Wednesday/18-Sep-13: Shopping today. Then there was a fishy Indian meal, that turned into a potluck for IHCC. While I was cooking our neighbor brought another big sackful of green and yellow beans! I really do have to take care of all these.

Thursday/19-Sep-13: Still working on the zucchini bounty. Dinner was a moldy-oldy, Zucchini, Corn, and Potato Tacos (MC). No taco shells at the shops, so I made some proper corn tortillas, which are better anyhow.

Friday/20-Sep-13: Froze up a bunch of little sacks of yellow and green beans this afternoon.

Used more zucchini tonight with another oldie-but-goodie, Zucchini-Tuna Tagliatelle (MC). And a bit salad. And that was it.

Put chicken on to marinate for tomorrow night. Yogurt on overnight.

Saturday/21-Sep-13: An Ottolenghi dinner for next week's theme. Served with trio rice and some steamed broccoli with five green beans from the garden.

Sunday/22-Sep-13: Midday dinner today was Ottolenghi's Broccoli and Gorgonzola Pie (web), using Fourme Ambert instead of gorgonzola. Very good it was. Then a salad with the rest of last night's rucola. Then some double chocolate mini Magnums.

Progress on goals
This week: #1 IHCC/COOKBOOKS: yes, #2 VEG/FISH: 5
This month: #3 PASTA: no, #4 BREAD: no
