Menu Monday: From Penzey's with Love

Sorry for the lack of posts this weekend. I did do some crafting but I can show it to you yet - it's a surprise!

Some of you may be familiar with Penzeys Spices which has as store near my parents' house (well, actually it is a bit of a drive but my dad and I go there every time I'm home). I just got their most recent catalog and while I'm trying not to buy anything new until we move, I did find some fantastic recipes. So this week, almost all of the recipes I'm making are from Penzeys (unfortunately most aren't online).

Sunday: Grilling with Friends - I made Broccoli Salad
Monday: Moo Shoo Veggies and Rice
Tuesday: Portabello Melts, Strawberries, and Salad
Wednesday: Chicken Tortilla Soup (Happy Cinco de Mayo!!)
Thursday: Springtime Risotto
Friday: Party!!!
Saturday: Beef and Veggie Kabobs over Couscous


  1. Only the Barefoot Contessa would have the balls to suggest a risotto in an episode entitled 'Impromptu Dinner.' Taking a half an hour standing over a risotto adding stock sounds like the perfect solution to a last minute dinner idea, dont you think?

  2. Absolutely, you can stir the risotto while your shortbread dough is chilling for an hour. Oh, Ina. I love that she transitioned from nuclear policy analyst under President Carter to Food Network host.
