Weekly Menu 3/8 - 3/13/10

I went to a birthday party at one of our favorite local restaurants, Corner Table, this weekend. All the wonderful food had a Southern flair with brisket, ribs, pulled pork sandwiches & parsnip spoonbread with red eye gravy. The hit of the party had to be that bright red jar of Kool-aid picked eggs.
#65 - Kool-aid Pickled Egg
I'd heard of Koolickles, pickles made wit Kool-aid but never Kool-aid pickled eggs. The color is just out of the world.
Kool-aid Pickled Eggs
I was actually surprised how everyone was so daring & willing to try these. As for the taste. It was like a pickle with real sweet side to it. The richness of the egg yolk was a good counterpoint to the sweetness. I liked the way they tasted at first but the fruity sweetness actually started to be too much towards the end of the egg. It was certainly interesting to try but I don't think I'll be searching them out again.

On to Menu Planning Monday...

Kind of a comfort food menu this week.

Rosted Carrot Pasta

Chorizo, Potato & Kale Soup

I've never heard of anything pickled with kool-aid. Ha! What a wild combo. Hurry up with that soup. I have a huge bag of taters to use up and that sounds so good! :)

Isn't it amazing what you can do with Kool-Aid? =)

More seriously, I like the photo you got of the egg. Great colors.

I'm game to try most anything pickled, except eggs. I just can't. But the photo is rather pretty.....

I love pickled eggs and after Easter, I see them in my future.

I have never heard of these.

Pickled in kool aid? Um... maybe not. But Paul has been on at me to make some regular pickled eggs, and I see them in my future!
