Wanda's Book Reviews

I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles.  (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).

Menu Monday

I really didn't have to do much cooking this past week--I coasted with turkey leftovers and scrambled eggs.

 

But, I did make Honey, Mustard & Herb Chicken, from the Yum & Yummer cookbook.

 

 

Here are the chicken thighs, fresh from the oven, with their lemon slice hats.

 

They also plated up attractively:

 

 

However, they tasted more lemony than Honey-Mustard, and I'm not sure that I'd make them again.

 

I also had two sweet potatoes that were really needing attention, so I assembled Pork & Sweet Potato Pie yesterday.  I was headed to the theatre in the afternoon, so I cooked the parsnips & sweet potatoes in the morning.

 

 

The parsnips form the base, then there's a ground pork layer, covered with mashed sweet potatoes and heated through in the oven.

 

 

My sister gave me two zucchinis, so I must get them grated up (maybe tonight) and next week's offerings may feature some zucchini recipes.

 

Bon appétit, everyone!
