The weather finally seems to be turning to spring & we even bought a grill this weekend. Dinner was cooked & eaten outside last night
Things look a little drippy the rest of this week but hopefully soon you'll be seeing lots of recipes for the grill in the weekly menu.
Ok, here's the Menu Planning Monday. We'll be trying lots of new recipes this week so come back for the recipes & reviews.
Asian Chicken Salad with Snap Peas & Bok Choy - From Bon Appétit May '08 - RESULT - A really good salad that we will make again. It's really quite pretty with its bright greens.
Merguez Lamb Patties with Golden Raisin Couscous - From Gourmet March '08 - RESULT - We had some trouble finding the ingredients but I'm glad we did.
Pasta Carbonara - from Everyday Italian: 125 Simple and Delicious Recipes
Mustard-crusted Pork with Carrots & Lentils - from Gourmet Nov. '07 - RESULT - Fabulous flavors for not a ton of work. This would make a nice dinner party dish.
Sausage & Roasted Red Pepper Lasagna - One we made awhile back that is in the freezer
This weeks cupcake will be Dark Chocolate & Bacon. Yes, bacon. This cupcake is inspired by Vosges' Mo's Bacon Bar. The salty & sweet are really, really good together so I hope they turn out the same way in a cupcake. - RESULT - This could be heaven.
