Whew, this weekend was a lot of challenge posts. Don't forget if you are a member of the Foodie Blogroll to go vote for this month's Royal Foodie Joust, I'm particularly proud of the Steamed Orange Pork Buns I made.
Let's sit back with a fancy cup of coffee & look at what on my Menu Planning Monday...
Spicy Chicken Pizza - We roasted a chicken on Sunday instead of a turkey so this will be using some of that with homemade crust of course!
Chorizo, Shrimp & Lentil Stew - I'll be making this one up as I go along.
Pork Fried Rice - Using the left over roast pork from the steamed buns.
Cranberry Bean & Vegetable Soup - From Soup's On!: 75 Soul-Satisfying Recipes from Your Favorite Chefs
with a few additions I think.
Chicken Enchiladas - Another use for the left over chicken. We'll be making a Rick Bayless sauce for them.
Saturday, my sister will be here with her family. One of her almost 4 year old twins called me to ask what I was making for dinner. When I asked him what he liked, he told me "I like meat. I like steak & I like pork." Ah, that's my godson!
For this week's cupcake I want to continue to play with the pomegranate juice so I'm thinking of a very vanilla cupcake with pomegranate icing.
