Menu Plan Monday - September 10, 2012
I also experimented with my challah dough this week. I substituted pomegranate juice (warmed in the microwave) for the water in the dough. I'm sorry I didn't take any pictures. The dough had a slight pink-y purple hue and after letting it rise in the fridge overnight, by Friday morning it had a sweet/almost sourdough smell to it. The dough was a bit soft to work with and after the first braid, it was already "blowing out" the sides a bit. The remaining dough I put in baking pans. Actually, the pans were those tortilla bakers. Have you seen the infomercial? Well, I have had them for over 10 years (most likely when they actually manufactured them). Anyway, those loaves came out really nice. The taste was subtle, yet definitely sweet. I think I will be trying it again with the pans. And next time, I will take a picture :)
Menu for this week -
Monday - Tofu tacos. After the success of the Mexi-chop salad, I thought this may work with some seasoned pan-fried tofu cubes in place of meat. And then we can have real sour cream with it, yum!
Tuesday - Pasta primavera or ravioli. Ravioli was requested, but alas, none in the freezer. Perhaps I can get out to the store before Tuesday.
Wednesday - Italian Wedding soup (with homemade chicken broth), using Ina Garten's recipe, minus the milk and cheese and using just ground turkey for the meatballs.
Thursday - Homemade Pizza
Friday - Spaghetti and meatballs- another request for the week.
