holy camoly, i cooked up a storm yesterday!
this meal is my favourite in the history of little red kitsch'n. i'm worried that it might be a little too complicated & too much reading for the frenzied saturday shoppers - but we'll see...
here's what i made yesterday:
brined & herb roasted turkey breast - shani's farm (7 oz portions)
my grandma's baked ham with cloves, mustard, honey & pineapple (7 oz portions)
parsnip and celeriac puree - super smooth & creamy
dressing: summer savoury, homemade bread, mashed potatoes, dried cranberries (my favourite!)
sweet potato casserole, maple-walnut crunch on top
roasted fingerling potato salad, radishes, celery, tarragon, grainy mustard vinaigrette
turkey & thyme gravy
here's what i'll be making today:
lemony asparagus spears
crunchy slaw (rabbit food!)
herb roasted veggies
i also made a huge batch of thai turkey & rice soup yesterday and mexican posole. for those that don't know, posole is a spicy soup with hominy, braised pork, green chillies, cilantro & green onions. this one definitely has a kick and lots of southwest flavours like cumin & coriander and a special kick from my chipotle lime bbq sauce. i'm going to try and squeeze in a batch of red lentil dahl today - 'try' being the operative word...
today is also my baking day. i have to whip up a tray of brownies, giant bunny shortbreads, lemon meringues, chocolate coconut macaroons & tons of cupcakes. on sunday the nice people who make the british pasties have organized a scavenger hunt for the kiddies. i'm one of the destinations so i'll be giving each participant a free mini cupcake when they come by - should be fun and lots of baking. i picked up loads of easter candy too: mini eggs, jelly beans, easter smarties and chocolate eggs for extra special & festive garnishes too. i like the chocolate, vanilla, carrot & red velvet selection so i'll stick with that this week and maybe switch it up for next week.
enjoy the sun, see you over the weekend.
