The Visit Went Well

So I dropped off my parents yesterday.  I’m beat.  Part of the problem is that I was trying to save money, so I cooked.  Here is the menu, in case you were curious:

Thursday supper

Crab cakes/salmon cakes with salad (Leif doesn’t eat shellfish)

(I used garlic scapes in place of scallion and panko in place of typical breadcrumbs)

Friday breakfast

Boring: english muffins, tea, orange juice

Friday lunch

Omelettes and Polenta, mini bell peppers and farm share celery on the side

Add-ins: mozzarella, goat cheese, chives from the garden, garlic scapes, fresh tomato

Dad had plain w/ chives

Mom and Iain had mozzarella, goat cheese, & garlic scapes

Rowan had plain

I had basil-garlic polenta w/ goat cheese and tomato

Leif was at work

Friday supper

Pounded chicken cutlets, dipped in panko and pan-fried, kale on the side

Add-ins: capers, lemon, & anchovies (for those who wanted them)

Saturday breakfast

Homemade scones with clotted cream, strawberry or mulberry jam (both homemade, but not by me), marmalade, tea, orange juice

Saturday lunch

Homemade pizzas (why was I doing this to myself??)

Add-ins: Carmelized red onion, anchovies, pepperoni, goat cheese, tomato

Dad had olive oil, red onion, anchovies (he will not eat melted cheese or tomato sauce)

Iain had pepperoni, goat cheese, mozzarella (He will not eat anything tomato, just like Dad)

Mom had the same but with tomato sauce

Leif and Rowan had good old-fashioned pepperoni pizza

I had goat cheese and tomato

Saturday supper

We went out, Indian.

Sunday breakfast

Back to boring: english muffins, tea, orange juice

Sunday lunch

Farm share roasted red & gold potatoes, I used walnut oil, balsamic vinegar, salt & fresh black pepper (I’m starting to feel like I should start my own restaurant here)

Sunday evening

Kashmir roast leg of lamb I had started marinating the day before, basmati rice and cauliflower

Here’s what came from the farm share:

Garlic scapes, onions, potatoes, mesclun greens, kale, celery, goat cheese
