On Our Menu: May 16-22

Christian is getting his wisdom teeth pulled on Thursday. Poor guy! So we'll be eating a lot of soft foods towards the end of the week. I had my wisdom teeth yanked in high school and I remember how out of it I was afterwards due to the pain meds. My mom said I was sitting on the couch drooling on myself. Well, what do you expect - I couldn't feel my lips! I checked out a lot of movies from the library so we'll be taking it easy for a few days.

LAST WEEK'S MENU IN REVIEW: (View the original post here)
Monday: The Vegan Enchiladas were pretty good but the Cilantro Avocado Cream Sauce was amazing! I can see myself making the sauce at least once a month.
Tuesday: This was a throw-all-the-leftovers-together-and-sprinkle-with-Penzeys-Spices meal and it turned out really yummy. I love that!
Wednesday: This was my first time cooking with sole. It's quite flaky and the fillets fell apart. I thought it tasted very similar to tilapia.
Thursday: I really like the Wild Mushroom Risotto recipe because it's made in a slow cooker. I even got a few compliments on it at the potluck.
Friday: I tried out a new gluten-free crust. The recipe was very easy but, just like the other gluten-free crust I make, this one didn't get crispy on the bottom.
Saturday: My mom and I went out for a late lunch and Christian wasn't home for dinner so I just had leftover risotto.
Sunday: You'll see I'm making the scampi on Monday night of this week because I made the ham on Sunday instead. 
Baking: I turned the Carrot Muffins into a coffee cake because I didn't want to mess around with cleaning the muffin tin. I got the recipe out of Good to the Grain and the cake was made with amaranth flour. The flavor was just okay. Kind of earthly and not very sweet.
