It was a busy week in my kitchen since we were actually home most of the week. I would much rather eat at home then be in the city for doctors appointments and eating out.
I am pleased to report that I actually stayed pretty close to my menu plan that I shared last week.. The only change was I replace the manicotti with a stir fry since we were out of ground beef! It’s been almost two years since we last butchered a beef and our supply is getting dangerously low. I am going to have to put the bug in the in laws ears that they need to butcher another one and soon.
I am not pleased to report that I didn’t take one picture of any of our meals over the week. I would always think about it after the fact.lol I guess that means that the food was so good that there wasn’t time to take a picture before we ate! At least that is what I am going to go with!
The only item that was not very good was the kohlrabi, pepper, mushroom medley I made to accompany our schnitzel on Tuesday. The kohlrabi was from the garden and even though I cooked it and then fried it the taste wasn’t something I loved. It was okay, but I didn’t work the way I wanted it too. I better find a better way to use it since I have A LOT more bags of it in the freezer.
Last week menu plan was inspired by recipes from my Betty Crocker cook book that I tweaked here and there. This week’s I am going to get inspiration from Gordon Ramsay’s World Kitchen Cook book
Thursday Chicken and chorizo Paella
Friday pork stir fry with veggies and noodles
Saturday Chicken wings and fries
Sunday BBQ Ribs (weather permitting) Otherwise Greek ribs in the oven, baked potato, cauliflower
Monday red braised pork flank
Tuesday chicken pot pie

This week I shall try and remember to take pictures!!
