10/23 menu

Posted on by


the list in all its glory

  This is my first week’s posting as we try to learn about putting a blog together. One thing it definitely involves is a lot of cold food! We’re trying to figure out the photography part of this which means changing the lighting and taking picture after picture, which means a cold dinner. Ah well, the price of creativity.

Here’s what we’re eating this week:

Sunday- French Chicken in a Pot, smashed parsnips and potatoes, broccolini with garlic and lemon

Monday- at a friend’s, so no cooking but I did make a coconut cake as a birthday cake which I will be posting. It’s a recipe from the Macrina Bakery & Cafe Cookbook and my friend Brenda’s favorite request

Tuesday- Sausage and lentil soup with yummy Essential Bakery Como loaf

Wednesday- Turkey, pesto & cheese paninis and leftover soup

Thursday we’ll be at a friends again to celebrate the Indian new year, Diwali. I am bringing another coconut cake because I’ve found that the original recipe makes enough for two cakes and coconut goes so well with Indian food.

Friday- Chicken Bolognese and caesar salad adapted from one of my favorite Italian cookbooks, which I’ll post later.

  1. Ok, I’m making the French chicken this weekend but I’d love to have the recipe for the chicken bolognese (it sounds sooo good!) I can hardly wait!
    Thanks Margretta for sharing!

    • I’m so glad you’re going to try one of the recipes! The chicken bolognese is delicious and I promise I’ll post the recipe tomorrow for you so you have it for the weekend too. It’s good for a weeknight if you have a little time to cook, but takes a little more than an hour to prepare.

  2. Hi Margretta,
    So great to see your blog! I always drool over what Sal posts on FB. You are on my Reader now! And I’m jealous of your kitchen! :) cheers!
