This week in the kitchen

Monday/1-Jun-15: Dinner was Goat Cheese, Chive, and Chili Pepper Sauce for Pasta (MarCuc, p167). Such an easy, tasty, fast dinner. Except for the soft goat cheese, everything in house. Followed by a big salad.

Tuesday/2-Jun-15: Off to Saumur today.

Wednesday/3-Jun-15: Another day in Saumur.

Thursday/4-Jun-15: Home again. Ed to choir practice. Me to shop at Intermarché. Not our regular shop, but will do in a pinch. We're not happy with Leclerc, where we usually shop, and vaguely looking for a replacement. Intermarché ain't it either.

Dinner was Apricot Dijon Glazed Salmon (web). Cooked it under the broiler rather than in the oven; this worked fine. Very good. Served with trio rice and steamed broccoli. Dessert from the boulagerie.

Friday/5-Jun-15: Dinner started out to be a recipe from Jamie magazine (not to be found online), Cumin & Yoghurt Roast Chicken, wherein marinated thighs are roasted on top of carrots and parsnips. Yogurt was the basis of the marinade, which I didn't note since we've usually got yogurt on hand. I used creme fraiche with extra lemon juice instead. In the end, we decide to barbecue the thighs rather than bake them. Served with corn on the cob and orzo. For after, some Citrus-Poached Pears from the same article.

Saturday/6-Jun-15: Fresh pasta tonight, yes! With Zucchini and Thyme Pasta Sauce (MarCuc, p162). Then a big salad. Then we shared our last magnum classic.

Sunday/7-Jun-15: Dinner was Easy Egg Curry with Urad Dal and Tamarind (web). Really yummy stuff. Can't say it was all that easy, but it wasn't hard. Used this method to steam the hard-boiled eggs, very successful. Served with plain rice and Stir-Fried Cauliflower (IndLight, p179), which was ok, a bit plain, but easy.
