We received both red kale and turnip greens in the CSA box this week. In an effort to use them up we made a recipe we make fairly often.
While bean and Kale soup
Baked sausage with peppers
Soyrizo (a soy chorizo analog)
Beer bread with herbs & jalapeno
Hand made chocolate taffy

Ted took over the cooking this week as it was my birthday. He made a very tasty meal.
Home-ground pork with smoked paprika
Sauteed carrots and parsnips
Meringue with pears, chocolate ganache & whipped cream
Thank you Mr. Ted.
ted_badger wanted braised beef this week so I built the rest of the menu around that. I’m reasonably happy with the way everything came out.
Beef Braised in Barolo (recipe from Cook’s Illustrated – pay to view, sorry)
Baked Potatoes with assorted accompaniments
Winter Squash with Herbs (recipe under the cut)
Homemade batards by Ted
Giant Cranberry Cookie

We skipped a couple of Saturday night gatherings for a birthday party and our anniversary. I took a cooking class during the time apart and made a menu of two of the items I learned.
Israeli Couscous with roasted onions, peppers & summer squash
Sauteed Rainbow Swish Chard
Home-baked Ted Bread
