How Was It?/What's for Dinner? 1/29-2/5/12

Once again the house of Whimsy is on reduced numbers, so we are deploying leftover lunch friendly, so easy the 13 year old could make it meals. Feel free to skip to last week's reviews and come back later next week for the interesting food.

Sunday: (A rescheduled meal) Chicken with Proscuitto, Asiago Cheese & Fresh Sage
Monday: Mini Meatball & Noodle Soup
Tuesday: Burritos
Wednesday: Leftovers or Dinner Out (The fate of dinner in the hands of the solar system project)
Thursday: French Bread Pizzas
Friday: (The Return of the) Frittata
Saturday: Honey-Soy Salmon with Spinach & Peppers

The Pot Pie was addressed before, so we start with the salmon. I believe their may have been some operator error, definitely didn't resemble the pretty pretty magazine photos. Now some mistakes were my own, using Dijon in place of whole grain mustard, other were the people who share my house. We usually have a large container of maple syrup on hand a heads up when we have less than 2 Tablespoons seems reasonable, non? Over all a fine, but probably not to be repeated. The Brussel Sprouts were a first for me, Y was just please to see them.
Roasted Chicken was an improvement, the oven and I seem to be coming to terms with each other. However the Organic Green Gratin was very disappointing. I had it on "to try list" for months. There is a good idea in there somewhere, but unattractive in the end, the crushed cracker topping added texture, but awkwardly.
Everything else was good, but not necessarily noteworthy or postponed. I had a great crabcake on potato pancake with arugula and whole grain mustard sauce at the Irish Pub for the School of Rock plays Queen concert, as a bonus.
