Menu of the Week: Frenchy style

• 13 July 2009

















Even though I have fewer kitchen gadgets and limited counter space, I am really enjoying cooking over here. Taking advantage of readily-available and inexpensive ingredients like crème fraiche, pate brisee, Comte, Roquefort and blood orange juice is the name of the game. If I bought all of these ingredients at once in the US I’d have to drop $40-50; here, the total is more like $20 (and that's with the bad exchange rate!). It’s so awesome. I feel like we can eat well every night on a modest budget (we are keeping our weekly budget the same over here as at home), and this is a real treat in my book.

Herb & Leek Tart, Arugula Salad, fruit

Greek Salad with a crusty bread, fruit

Whole Wheat Pasta with Simple Tomato Sauce, Mache Salad with Champagne Vinaigrette

Sauteed Chicken with Balsamic Shallot Sauce, steamed Broccoli, baguette, artisan cheese

Roasted Beet Salad with Roquefort dressing, Herb Roasted Potatoes, "Charlotte" Strawberries

I think we'll throw in this meal from last year too--it's a family favorite amongst kids and adults alike.
