This week in the ktichen

Monday/7-Nov-16: Tonight we had Chicken Thighs in Cream Sauce (web), which was pretty good, although there was too much liquid; I thickened the sauce with a bit of potato starch. Served with steamed broccoli.

Realized I didn't have a dinner planned for tomorrow evening. Oops. Have defrosted something.

Tuesday/8-Nov-16: Tonight there was leftover Acquacotta from the freezer, with an egg each poached in the simmering soup. It was good. And filling.

Wednesday/9-Nov-16: Pizza out after Ed's choir concert today. Nothing happened in the kitchen.

Thursday/10-Nov-16: Ed went to choir practice today, and I went shopping. Not all that much to get since we're eating out a lot in the next days. Although not tomorrow, since that date has been postponed.

Dinner was Judy Heuman's Indian Fried Fish, collected from Facebook. We had cod, coated with a mixture of besan (gram flour) and garlic black pepper. groun cumin, turmeric, salt, water, and oil. Not the prettiest dish ever (most of the batter fell off), but tasty. Served with plain basmati rice and Pan-Grilled Zucchini (MJ@Home, p373). For dessert we had some store-boughten flan. Yum.

Friday/11-Nov-16: Remembrance day in France. We went to our local ceremony, only to discover they held it earlier than usual so that many people could go to the ceremony in Montbron. After having our celebratory hot chocolate, we went on to Montbron, to find that ceremony was already finished. They unveiled a new monument for victims of the Indochinese and North African wars.

Our lunch with friends today got cancelled, so I made Barley Risotto with Mushroom, Zucchini and Peas (web). This was supposed to serve four; two of us ate it all. Might serve three. I made a salad, but we were full of risotto; saved it for tomorrow. Some fruit in the evening.

Saturday/12-Nov-16: Dinner tonight was a shrimp pilau from Time-Life. (The shrimp were supposed to be wild, but almost all of them had eaten a substantial meal before they were killed. I've never seen so much stomach goo.) Yesterday's salad was still good.

Sunday/13-Nov-16: Had lunch out today. No need for further food.
