Meal Planning Monday....Sorta.

October 18, 2010

This is going to be a very busy and interesting week.  My sister is getting married, B is insanely busy with work, I have a ton to do.  All this translates to not many sit-down dinners at home.  Still, I want to make sure we are not eating Joe's O's for dinner (again), so I plan to make a few things to tide us over. 

pumpkin soup with gruyere and sage croutons

italian sausages with pepper and onions
polenta

smitten's apple and cheddar scones
frittata

Also, I have a favor to ask of you.  Tuesday night is Supper Club (yay for that), but I am so far stumped as to what to bring.  The theme is All Things Apples, and I signed up for a dessert.  Any killer apple dessert recipes you'd like to share by chance??

  1. I have always lurked but never commented. I just had to add this today though. I made this ice cream last night with some MacIntosh and Macoun apples that were fresh picked from our CSA. It was to die for...

  3. That pumkin soup sounds amazing! I will have to put this on my pumkin obsession list. For dessert, I always love to make Ina's apple and pear crisp. You can never really go wrong with Ina!

  4. This looks divine...

    And since I have many apples (and hazelnuts), these two have inspired me to bake a apple 'cake' dessert (instead of a pie or crisp, that I usually lean towards) this week... [the second one is with pears, but apples would work as well!]

  6. A different type of apple dessert! "Apples stuffed with walnuts and amaretti." It's easy. I don't have a recipe with me at the moment but this one is pretty good http://www.cookaround.com/cucina/portata/confro-1.php?id_ricetta=1664 (I apologize I couldn't find an English recipe but the pictures and Google Translator should help!)
