Menu Planning - But no photos

But I have a good excuse - while trying to be all environmentally friendly we purchased rechargeable batteries and now I cannot find the charger anywhere so until then....  sorry.

Last week's highlight was definitely the Welsh Rarebit from my Good Housekeeping book.  It was so easy but very delicious - made ten thousand times easier if you have an easily cleanable double boiler.

Here is a picture of someone else's - it looked the most like mine.  Unfortunately however, I did not make that much.

The books that I'm using this week are Everyday Pasta by Giada De Laurentiis; 

and Food Safari Cookbook which is the result of a TV show that I love.

Food Safari (Book)

There is a link to Giada's site on the left.  If you click here you will be taken to the SBS website and a lot of the Food Safari recipes are there.  I'm in love with the Crepe Suzette from the French episodes.  We even got a crepe pan for our engagement so I will have to give that one a go.   Actually I will do a link for all of Food Safari under Feast on the left so if you like it you don't have to hunt around for this post in the future.

The pork with apples sounds so good, but I no longer eat pork darn it! :( Sounds like a lovely menu!

Thanks Mrs B. As a vegetarian I don't eat it either. Im so worried that I might taste something when I'm cooking that has meat in it or is meat! It's probably because I drink too much champagne while making dinner.

Thanks for your compliment.
