Weekly Menu

by Josée

Here is our menu for the week. The recipes are from Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Vol. 1 and Fresh with Anna Olson: Seasonally Inspired Recipes to Share with Family and Friends and Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking. The books by Julia Child and Marcella Hazan are excellent and I’m hoping to add them to my cookbook collection 🙂

1) Homemade tortellini with fennel cream and green beans. Check out my recent post for our homemade pasta adventure!
2) Quesadillas (black bean and corn) and a salad of some sorts.
3) Rabbit saupiquet, noodles (homemade? do I dare?) and swiss chard.
4) Risotto with spring vegetables.
5) Chick pea soup.

Hey I bounced over from All Things Gayle!

Hi Amy! We raise meat rabbits so I'm always looking for new rabbit recipes to try out. The recipe is from Julia Child's "Mastering the Art of French Cooking". It's rabbit marinaded in red wine vinegar and herbs and then stewed in red wine. We're planning to try it out tomorrow, I'll let you know how it tastes 🙂

Pasta is one of the best dishes ever, it is so cheap and tasty noone can resist it. I learn how to cook it when I was staying in one of those buenos aires apartments in my trip to Argentina. I must admit they know how to prepare sauces!
