Weekly Menu - 10/6 - 10/11/08

At the Apple House
We took a little trip out to the University of Minnesota Arboretum this Saturday to pick up a few bags of apples. The U has developed quite a few varieties of apples including the Honeycrisp, which is one of the best eating apples we've ever had & the Minnesota State Fruit. We picked up a bag of those as well as another MN variety, Haralson, which is supposed to be great for cooking (though I like its tart flavor fresh as well). So, expect a few apple recipes this week including Apple Waffles, Ginger Peach Applesauce, Baked Apples & maybe an Apple Caramel Bake Matt is dreaming up.

On to Menu Planning Monday...

Chicken Adobo - from What's Cooking

Prosciutto & Fig Paninis - Maybe I'll even make the rolls from scratch

Pomegranate Marinated Lamb over Couscous - From the new Bon App├ętit - RESULT - I had high hopes for this but it was really disappointing. The flavors were really muddy & dull.

Brats with Roasted Potatoes

Creamy Turnip with Paprika Soup

Chicken Stewed in Wine, Garlic & Cinnamon - A Cat Cora recipe from Soup's On!: 75 Soul-Satisfying Recipes from Your Favorite Chefs - RESULT - This was so good. We added some spinach at the end which was wonderful.

This week's cupcake will be Candy Corn...I'm hoping this idea turns out because it could be super cute.

Ben's chicken adobo and the Filipino version are both on my list - I can't wait to see your post on it. They're both very different.
