This week, we're trying some new things. It's good to search for new recipes and try them out.
Monday: Turkey burgers (not new, but easy)
Tuesday: Roasted beets and carrots, Swiss chard (from my mom's garden) over couscous, and banana mashed potatoes. I had the banana mashed potatoes awhile back when we went out to eat at a Caribbean restaurant and knew I'd want to try them at home.
Wednesday: Eggplant and sweet potato stacks with yogurt sauce, minus the pomegranate because we don't have that in the house.
Thursday: Bacon and beer mac 'n cheese. We'll use fake bacon so that I'll eat it.
Friday: Champagne risotto with peas and poached eggs. I'll have to buy some peas, but this sounds like it's worth it.
Saturday: pierogies with sour cream, caramelized onion and lemon juice. I know there was something else we wanted with it, but can't remember. (Recipe: You can use leftover mashed potatoes. Mix 3 cups of flour, 2 eggs, and 1 cup of water, adding flour as needed to roll out the dough. Don't make it too thin or the
potatoes will bust through during the boil. Make a single layer on a
floured cookie sheet and stick them in the freezer if you're not going to
use them right away. Once they are frozen, put them in a zip top
Sunday: If we're up for a challenge, we'll make stacked enchiladas. That recipe calls for making your own enchilada sauce. Otherwise, we'll have chicken pho.
I'm not sure when I'll get to these, but I will have to try the roasted butternut, apple, labneh salad with pomegranate molasses dressing.
It's more of a winter salad, but it sounds delicious.
