Fresh spices make food nicest~
We are scheduling our second official Mavens Monthly Cooking Club.
Last month we made home made pierogies and home made pasta dough.
Everything turned out num-nums! 🙂
What the menu is shaping up to be is a round the world culinary “bite”. The menu so far (subject to change with input from the other Mavens) is:
Beef Fajitas (this will either be a fresh/refrigerator dish or crock pot)
Chicken Stir-Fry (fresh/refrigerator dish)
Marinated or rubbed Salmon Filet
Cannelloni’s-Ricotta, spinach & ground chicken or turkey)- we make our own pasta dough for this and our noodles.
Mary’s Famous Pot Pies-this is a bottom crusted pot pie with panko crumbs on top-that approach cuts down on calories we also add chicken with lots of veggies. Drizzle some butter or olive oil on top and voila!
Sheppard’s Pie-Vegetables, ground beef and a mushroom gravy topped with fresh mashed potatoes.
Daubes of Beef Roast
Pork Tenderloin Paprikash
Cheesy Chicken Bundles
Apricot Glazed Chicken
Baked Broccoli Medley
Hash Brown Casserole
We will also be making assorted blanched veggies and sides.
Recipes and shopping lists will be available and sent out via email.
Please feel free to post pictures. We hope to share our photos here from cook day.
For those of you who are interested in forming a club, please feel free to email me. We are in the Charleston Area, however, I am available for consultation on how to set up your club and will help with menu planning, shopping tips, and shopping lists.
I have had many inquiries into this process and I am always happy to share the positives of the practice with people. Here are just a few:
Home made food, with ingredients that you have chosen yourself. You know exactly what is in what you are feeding your family.
Time savings-We all have had a lessening of quality of life because we are all just so doggone busy. This is a way to make better use of your limited time resource.
Dinner with the family as often as possible with as little preparation time as possible. We have crock pot dinners, ready made to heat and serve dinners, all the convenience of carry-out with none of the negatives.
Money savings-we use organic meats and still save money by making our meals in bulk and with the help of friends and neighbors.
Social time with friends. We make meal preparation easy and fun!
