This week's menu is tres boring. Last week was a really crazy work week for me, so I ended up not cooking for most of it.
Mon: Chicken and Rice from two weeks ago
I'm a lamo.
Tues: Cauliflower stew stuff from last week
Even bigger lamo.
Wed: My lovely little African friend K.Pool is coming home from the Peace Corps! KB will be fending for himself this night because I will be with some lovely ladies I haven't seen in too long.
Bonus Recipes: We're chock full of bonus recipes this week...
My dad is a big fan of fruitcake. I don't think anyone else in the world is. These bars promise to be like a more refined version of the nasty candied, jellied fruitcakes.
French Chocolate Bark
Ina is my homegirl. I made this last year and it was delicious. I'm using dark chocolate, dried cranberries, dried apricots, and cashews.
Dark Chocolate Peppermint Bark
I'll also be doing a layer of white chocolate as well. KB is a big peppermint bark fan and has been bugging me about it for a while.
These are for my coworkers and I'm a little nervous. The recipe calls for heavy cream, but our podunk grocery store only carries whipping cream. We'll see how they turn out.
I'm also on the lookout for a good adult bev for my parent's christmas. We have a ton of random, half empty bottles of weird liquor and I'd like to use those up, but so far I haven't really found anything. Can you make anything with coconut vodka, peppermint schnapps, dark rum or sweet tea vodka?
