I’m looking forward to the Butter Chicken in this week’s menu. It is an Indian-spiced, slow-cooked chicken dish I’ve heard about several times but have never tried. I’m also going to make some Barley Strawberry Scones that I will definitely post all about later this week. Now for the task at hand—this week’s menu. . .
Monday: Grilled Chicken Kabobs w/ cucumber-tomato couscous salad & minty melon
Tuesday: Butter Chicken w/ steamed brown rice, mango, & garlic naan
Naan is an Indian flatbread that I usually serve with curries and other Indian-spiced foods. It comes in whole-wheat, garlic, and curry flavors. Xavier’s favorite is garlic naan.
Thursday: Beef & Black Bean Tacos w/ calabacitas & Mexican brown rice
Calabacitas is a Mexican squash dish that is cooked with tomatoes, onions, peppers, and cheese.
Friday: Pizza or Chinese Delivery
Xavier and I are going to
Saturday: Cooking Class—Appetizers
I’m teaching a cooking class for some friends of all appetizers on this evening, so dinner will consist of jalapeno-stuffed, bacon-wrapped BBQ shrimp, mini Caesar salads in parmesan cups, brie en croute, roasted garlic bulbs w/ crostini, and caramelized onion dip. Everyone is bringing along wine or dessert, so it will be a fun night of appetizers, desserts, and wine…oh my!
Sunday: Grilled Fish Packets w/ asparagus & potatoes
