Two at the Table continues with the theme of only eating vegetarian, fish and seafood. This week’s menu ranges from Mexican to Indian to even a little French-inspired. We finish the week with a grown-up take on a classic.
Sunday night we have a fundraising event to go to for Tony’s nephews, so we’ll be having dinner as part of that event and not cooking.
Monday night features Food & Wine’s Fish Tacos with Tomatillo-Jalapeño Salsa and Food 52’s Roasted Corn with Lime, Parmesan, and Chili. We love making fish tacos and this is a new recipe for us so we are exited to see if this stands up to our favorite version.
Like last Tuesday night where we tried something different by making cuisine from Morocco, this Tuesday night we are trying our hand at Indian food for the first time. We are starting out relatively simply with Indian-Inspired Shrimp with Coconut, Chiles, and Tomato. We hope that this dish goes well, as it will be fun to expand the range of food we make.
Wednesday night brings an elegant, simple dinner from Ina Garten’s Barefoot in Paris cookbook with Herbed-Baked Eggs. We will pair this with bread and a simple green salad.
Friday night will be a cozy night in with Ina Garten’s Grown Up Mac and Cheese. While the recipe does call for bacon, which we are certain makes this even tastier, we are going to omit it this time around.
Finally, on Saturday night we are going with our good friends Alexandra and Eric (and a few others) for a tour of the Van Brunt Stillhouse in Brooklyn. We’ve done this once before and had a terrific time and we are thrilled to return. Since we made these plans long before we decided to give up meat and poultry for Lent, we are going to break our rule of no meat/poultry and enjoy some BBQ at Hometown BBQ as we did on our first trip to Van Brunt Stillhouse.
