This week in the kitchen

Monday/12-May-14: We lunched at La Bellone today. For dinner, we had small bits from the fridge and elsewhere. Finished off the soup, apple slices, sliced ham, the rest of the Mediterranean Lentil Salad, cheeses (Morbier, Fourme d'Ambert, Chabichou), membrillo, and probably some other things I've forgetten.

Yogurt on overday. Had an electric blip while we were out, so it was off when we returned. Restarted, guessing at how much time was left.

Tuesday/13-May-14: Yogurt was a bit on the runny side, but otherwise OK.

Another lovely lunch out, followed by a little bit of touristing, followed by grocery shopping (we know how to treat visitors here), then home for a rest. For dinner we had salad and cheese.

Wednesday/14-May-14: Yogurt on overday.

For dinner we started with ham and melon, the ham from neighbor Barbara's loto winning, laboriously cut by me and the visiting Barbara. As a main, there was a cheesy risotto (RealCook, p169); cookbooker) for this week's IHCC theme. Then a salad. Then a bit of ice cream with frais de bois (wild strawberries) from the potager.

Thursday/15-May-14: Lots of cooking today. While I was a physio, Barbara took the meat from the leg of lamb and made Shepherd's Pie with Spiced Parsnip Mash (RealCook, p119), which was my potluck dish for next week's IHCC. Later I made, Carrot and Onion Salad (MJ1, p171) for a starter and Strawberry Shortcake (TLAmer, p90) for an ender.

Friday/16-May-14: Lunch out today, in preparation for concert in evening. Not much action in the kitchen.

Saturday/17-May-14: Saw Barbara off in Angoulême after a look around and lunch. Ed had a hamburger and I had a salad. For our evening meal, Ed had a salad and I had a lamb sandwich.

Sunday/18-May-14: We had our main meal at lunch today since we went to an concert in the early evening. I made Scallops with Spicy Curry Sauce and Couscous (web), which was okay, but nothing special. Added fêves to the couscous. For a side, there was Gujerati Carrot Salad (MJ1, p170). We had our usual lunch for dinner when we got home.
