Saturday night – 09/06/2008

Back to the usual crew this week. I figured out the menu when the weather report was saying it would be coolish and rainy during the Saturday. Turned out to be hot and humid, not a great combo when running two ovens for much of the day. Still dinner was tasty.

Sept. 6th Dinner
Baked Ham
Mashed potatoes
Roasted yellow beets with vinaigrette
Sauteed cousa squash w/shallot and lemon zest
Home baked bread from the hands of ted_badger

Bread pudding with apricots & sour cherry caramel


The cousa squash came from the farm stand. It is similar in shape and taste to zucchini. I sliced about 2.5 pounds on the mandoline to get consistent size pieces. I think I overcooked the shallots by having the pan too hot.

The beets took ~1 hour 40 minutes to cook rather than the 50 minutes we thought they would.
