Shove it in your Face!

This week should be fun in the kitchen. Come to think of it, just about every week here is fun in the kitchen! I work late a couple of days this week and Tiffany is in the middle of a tax crunch, so things aren't too groundbreaking. Last week, when I worked late on monday, I put together a sheepherd's pie in the afternoon that Tiffany could pop in the oven later. This week, I'll be doing the same tag team technique with enchiladas.

Monday: Cheese enchiladas, cider-coriander coleslaw, black beans. Trader Jose dark beer.
Tuesday: Grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup with red peppers. Paired with "whatever is in the back of the fridge" ale.
Wednesday: To make up for a rather banal Monday and Tuesday, tonight we'll be doing ceour du porc a l'armagnac, celery root gratin, and sauteed brussels sprouts. Paired with a decent bottle o' Zin from the "cellar".
Thursday: Gorgonzola Mac & Cheese with an Argula Salad with Black Mountain Pinot Noir. We eat this most weeks, I really must write it up soon.
Friday: TBA pizza! This is the first Friday after Lent, so we'll probably do something meaty and pair it with Trader Joe's Zinfandel, 2006.


PS: I almost forgot, I dropped by the butcher and got an ox tongue on Monday. The lengua tacos I've had in the past have been rather bland, so I'm gonna brine the hell out of it. Looks pretty nasty now, so check back in a week or two to see what's up.

Recuerde, para el hombre no hay mal pan.
