i just sat down after a 14 hour day in the kitchen, and i am wiped! please come visit me at the market over the weekend and help me clear some room in my fridges and freezers...
i have completely run out of space and have had to forgo the thai chicken & rice soup, and seafood chowder until next week - sorry, i hope no one is too disappointed.
i have 3 fresh main courses for the weekend:
beef 'osso buco' featuring getaway farm shanks, parmesan polenta, rich tomato gravy, rapini
chicken, leek, broccoli & bacon pies, with a puff pastry lid
herb-roasted chicken breast, shani's farm, creamy mushroom risotto and kale
in the freezer there's tons of stuff - i'm about to go through everything and label and organize (maybe i'll find some surprises)...
shepherd's pie, getaway beef, peas & corn, cheddar mashed potatoes
butter chicken with basmati rice
greek lamb meatballs, with roasted veggies and basil couscous - i also have the option of this dish minus the meatballs, sorry it's not vegetarian - chicken stock in the couscous
fishcakes & beans
lobster mac & cheese (i think there's just one left - new batch next week)
sausage & cheese curd baked penne, with shani's sausages and foxhill curds
roast pork dinner
spaghetti and meatballs
carrot, apple, ginger
curried butternut squash
roasted, red pepper, tomato & sweet potato
french onion with guinness and beer
cream of broccoli and cauliflower
beef & barley
vegan vegetable stew
root vegetable veloute
ummmm...i think that's it.
lemon meringue tarts
chocolate, carrot & red velvet cupcakes
oatmeal, white chocolate & cranberry cookies
chocolate, coconut macaroons
i was on a total roll this morning burning through the prep, and then in the evening things weren't going as planned. and then i pulled these little gems from the oven and i can go to sleep in a good mood.
