First, want to report that the Gratin Dauphinois we made last week, the one I was inspired by on La Tartine Gourmande‘s BEAUTIFUL site, was easy and delicious. If you have a food processor or a mandolin that will slice potatoes (and turnips and sweet potatoes) for you, you’re in business. The turnips and sweet potatoes give it a little something extra.
Meanwhile, I’m in a cookie frame of mind. It’s time for Christmas cookies and I’m planning my attack. Rich Roll Cookies, frosted and fun. Peanut Clusters. Candy Canes. On the fence about Gingerbread Men and Christmas Holly. Not to mention the famed Nut Mix. I think next weekend will be the perfect time to make a few.
On to the menu; quick and simple, here it is!
Sunday: Roast Whole Chicken with Roast Leeks (or Brussels sprouts, whatever is easier to find) and Potatoes (yummo)
Monday: Salmon en Papillote with sautéed Broccolini
Tuesday: White Bean Soup with Spinach
Friday: Shrimp Stir-Fry over Soba Noodles
Saturday: Pizza Night!
