Proper Sunday Dinner
Okonomiyaki, with cabbage slaw (so we don't waste the extra cabbage) and shoyu-buttered enoki mushrooms. I made the mushrooms with butter and cooked them til they had almost the texture of pan-fried noodles. Definitely doing that again.
Chinese Chicken Salad. It is more important that leftover chicken not go to waste than to be hard and fast on Monday being meatless.
Chard with pine nuts and tahini sauce and latkes (potato pancakes). Recipe #1 using sumac, which looks and sounds a lot like shiso. I also bought parsnips for the first time. The nice Safeway man called them "albino carrots." That's pretty accurate.
Pillsbury Manapua, using the leftover char siu and green onions from the okonomiyaki. And we'll polish off the rest of the Chinese Chicken Salad too.
Thursday from Jerusalem
Turkey/zucchini burgers/meatballs with sour cream/sumac sauce. Recipe #2 using sumac.
Fish on Friday
Omi's Shoyu Fish and leftover latkes. Thinking that this will be a jumbled plate lunch. The sauce of the shoyu fish mixing with the sour cream/sweet of the latkes reminds me of when teriyaki sauce leaks into the mac salad on a plate lunch. That's my theory with this combo.
