Week 89 Menu

A funny thing happened last night.  I grabbed a fortune cookie, opened the wrapper, cracked the cookie, pulled out the fortune, tossed said fortune in the trash and ate the cookie.  About 5 minutes later I picked up another fortune cookie and when I got to the fortune, I realized I hadn’t read my last fortune.  And not only had I not read it, but I threw it away without even THINKING about reading it.  Why so funny, you ask?  Well, I’ve never ever done that before.  I’ve always read my “fortune,” which usually goes something like, “You have nice hair.”  Yes, they are always SO helpful, but still, you gotta read your fortune, right?  Apparently my subconscious doesn’t think so.  Now I don’t know my future or the state of my hair.  Bummer. But the cookie was GOOD.

I can’t believe not one of you commented on the fact I ate GOAT last week.  Yes, people, we had goat for dinner.  No response?  Really?

    of all the meats i tried in africa, i’ve never had goat–but probably a few of its cousins. how did they prepare it, and did it taste strange to you? i was a little surprised how easily palatable all those funky meats were to my american tastes.
    speaking of meat, since aaron is dissecting “meat” all semester in anatomy class, his appetite for eating meat has dwindled. here’s our heavily vegetarian menu for the week:

    -italian wedding soup, dutch oven bread, salad
    -chinese eggplant salad, dumplings
    -homemade mac and cheese, roasted asparagus
    -lentil soup, whole grain artisan bread
    -quiche, braised cabbage (sounds nasty, but it’s SO good)

  14. As always, thank you all for your menus! I just love reading through them. Seriously, is this not the best way to get ideas?!

    Kate – chicken bruschetta bake sounds so yummy. I’ll probably make up my own version, but if you do read this and have a recipe, please share!

    Alice – why do your meatballs taste like Christmas?

    Mandy – I am dying to go to a wegmans! I’m very jealous.

    Lindsay – I knew I could count on you to comment on the goat. It tasted fine. I believe they grilled it, then they topped it with some yummy saucy stuff and a bunch of greens we’d never eaten before, so everything on the plate was a new flavor. I won’t start cooking with goat, but it was fun to try…I can only imagine what you ate in africa. aaron would not have liked our goat dinner…too many veggies. 🙂

    thanks again everyone!!! keep it coming!
