This week in the kitchen

Monday/28-Aug-17: Early meal today, a half recipe of Za'atar Chicken Cutlets and Lemon-Parsley Salad (web; cookbooker). (Hmm, this recipe is now "locked" at Milk Street. I wonder how I managed to print it from their site in July?) Very easy and tasty chicken, looks nice on the plate. Might be a trifle too much pomegranate molasses. (Did I really say that?) Served with the leftover Moroccan couscous from yesterday, with the leftover chicken and shrimp chopped up a bit and supplemented by a bit more couscous. Also Zucchini Chunks with Citrus and Mint (web) which I made a couple of weeks ago; roast some chunks, toss with a dressing of orange and lemon juices, 2:1) with some chopped mint added in. Easy enough. I had some more of the salsa too, but Ed passed on this.

Yogurt on overnight.

Tuesday/29-Aug-17: This was supposed to be fresh pasta day, but it's just too hot. So we had Cilantro Pesto (365Pasta, p155) over casreccia, then a big salad. Then we finished of the Melon Sorbet.

Wednesday/30-Aug-17: Shopping today.

Dinner was Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa (web). I mixed a bit of the salmon rub with the salsa. Served with polenta. Then a salad. Then some store-bought riz au lait.

Yogurt on overnight, since there's a recipe coming using lots of yogurt.

Thursday/31-Aug-17: Early meal of Spicy Cajun Shrimp (MW@Home, p255) over rice followed by a big salad. While that was happening, the oven dried some bread for Croutons (Art, p173).

Friday/1-Sep-17: Lunch out with Cath today before visiting Doug. Made up some Watermelon, Feta, and Black Olive Salad (MC) for Ed to take to singing day tomorrow.

Saturday/2-Sep-17: Saved a bowl of watermelon salad for me to eat today. Ed was off singing all day. I made a third recipe of a clafoutis with Corinne's little plums. Yummy. Grated up a bunch of zucchini/courgette for the freezer.

Sunday/3-Sep-17: Cath served us lunch today. Nothing further happened in the kitchen
