Weekly Menu 2/17 - 2/22/08

Beef, Beer & Lentil Stew - Making this up a we go along with some leftover beef & vegetables in the fridge - RESULT: The beer & roasted tomatoes made a great broth for this hearty satisfying stew.

Shrimp Curry - My mom made this recipe when I was growing up & we called it Green Shrimp. I don't know where she got the recipe. - RESULT: Much blander than I remembered though Matt says hot sauce gave it the kick it needed. A recipe that I think could easily be improved on.

Orecchiette with Sausage and Broccoli
- We are going to make our own homemade Italian sausage this week & try it in this recipe.
The finished goods

Rosemary White Bean Soup - Going to use leeks, rosemary & whatever else sounds good in the fridge & pantry. - RESULT: A perfectly yummy & fast winter soup that's full of flavor.

Homemade Pizza - We'll see which crust recipe Matt decides to try this time.

Chicken, Prosciutto & Tomato Risotto - from Risotto by Judith Barrett & Norma Wasserman - RESULT: A really wonderful, hearty version of risotto. The prosciutto & tomato add a lot to the flavor.

This week I'll be using the lavender & lavender sugar in the cupboard to make lavender cupcakes.
