This week in the kitchen

Monday/11-Dec-17: Went to make lamb chops today and discovered that I forgot to remind myself to put them on to marinate. Oops. Put them on to marinate for tomorrow, so they'll have almost 24 hours rather than only 8 hours.

Instead we had Copycat Panera Macaroni and Cheese (web). Wasn't bad at all. Actually the recipe is quite similar to the my usual mac-and-cheese recipe, without the minced onions. Both have too much liquid. Otherwise very tasty. Don't know Panera.

Yogurt on overnight.

Tuesday/12-Dec-17: The marinated lamb turned into Grecian Lamb with Herbed Yogurt Sauce (CL92, p158). The lamb marinated a bit longer than the recipe intended, but it was good. Served with the last of the Moroccan couscous I got from the health food store and Fassolakia Freska—Green Beans with Onion and Tomato (Meze, p79; cookbooker)

Wednesday/13-Dec-17: Dinner out this evening. Nothing happened in the kitchen.

Thursday/14-Dec-17: Doug's funeral today.

Dinner was Sarah's Slow Cooker Greek Chicken Gyros (web), made in the slow cooker. Served with flat breads (which I didn't bother to heat up, so they were a bit brittle), and chopped cuke, tomato, onion, and arugula.

Yogurt on overnight.

Friday/15-Dec-17: Soup for dinner, Pumpkin and Coconut Soup (SoupBible, p70). I made a full recipe. We ate all the solid bits and have quite a bit of flavorful broth in the freezer to use for something else. Not too hard to make, but took me a bit of time, especially for pounding the aromatics. Used raw frozen shrimp, not all that small. Used coconut milk and cream. Tasty and filling.

Saturday/16-Dec-17: Dinner out tonight. Nothing happened in the kitchen.

Sunday/17-Dec-17: Stamppot with zuurkool and smoked sausages for our meal today. Simple and delicious.

Yogurt on overnight.
