Please critique my menu for the upcoming week!

OP from the other menu thread -- my new beau loved my dishes. The only downfall was mushroom enchiladas -- they didn't turn out well at all. (Used too much salsa roja.)

I'm going marketing tomorrow to whip up next week's meals. Trying to be a lil bit healthy and a li bit decadent. For efficiency's sake, I'll skip my Sunday meals -- I think we'll dine out anyway, probably dim sum at brunch and sushi for dinner. Anyway...

Monday Sweet potato fries and house-made chipotle ketchup Sour cream, chive, and pickled onion salad topped with shredded lamb Spinach sauteed in garlic

Tuesday Biang Biang noodles, dusted with chili powder, topped with cilantro Honey-walnut shrimp Green beans in XO sauce

Wednesday Spaghettini with veal meatballs, boar's ragu Garden salad with farmers' market tomatoes and cukes, home-made Russian dressing, sourdough croutons

Thursday Pan-fried catfish Grits with oyster sauce Lemon chess pie

Friday Grilled swordfish with lemon-lilac marinade Spinach, walnut, goat-cheese-nubs salad with vinaigrette Flatbread with olive tapenade

Try not to serve Fish two consecutive nights.

Same for pasta...

by Anonymousreply 106/22/2012

R1 is right on target. Who serves fish two nights in a row? That's downright tacky.

Okay, for all-around prissy fussiness this week has leapt ahead to a well-deserved 7/10. Well done.

Good points -- I'll move catfish up to Monday!

What the fuck is a goat-cheese-nub and why would I want to eat it?

OP, leave your boyfriend and marry me instead!

Catfish? Why on earth would you serve your new "victim" a bottom feeder fish? That's disgusting. You know it lives on other fishes' shit, don't you?

I remember the days when I would try to "impress" a potential "beau"(trick)with my culinary skills. And then the sheet thing...I always wanted to have a nice bed for our "lovemaking"...beautiful, expensive sheets for me to fuck them on. And then a buddy reminded me that they could less what they were laying on...all they were interested in was my dick. That started me wondering about many, many things.

I hope this does also...for you.

I think that you are trying too hard, OP!

This all sounds like revolting pretentious slop. Not a single thing on here sounds worth the effort it will take to make it.

You are tedious beyond belief.

It reads like the menu from the best restaurant in some shit-hole town Arkansas.

"in Arkansas"

I kind of agree with you [R16] -- most of these items are not ones I'd like. Curried chicken, basmati rice, garlic naan, and green beans would be fine with me!

With the exceptions of the olive tamponade and veal (ew) it all sounds wonderful. Your bf must have a huge cock.

Uh, could I have a grilled cheese sandwich, please? With some dill pickles?

by Anonymousreply 2112/29/2012

Catfish is delicious! But grits is a breakfast food. I never heard of anyone serving it at dinner time. And with oyster sauce? Ick!

I'd much rather have corn bread with butter or hush puppies with my catfish. That's how it's always served in the South.

Aren't "dinner grits" cous-cous?

On New Year's Eve you must cook up some Georgia Hoppinjohn. Otherwise you'll have bad luck in the new year.

Google it.

Does anyone actually refer to grocery shopping as "marketing" these days? I can only think of Mrs. Cleaver and her ilk using that term.

Untrue. I've dated some hot guys who took me home to dirty sheets or sleeping bags on the floor and I've said, well, okay I said yes, but I was THINKING I should have said No!

[quote]Aren't "dinner grits" cous-cous?

Cous-cous is a type of pasta. "Dinner grits" would be closer to polenta.

by Anonymousreply 2912/29/2012

"house-made chipotle ketchup"

When you say house-made, do you really mean home-made? Or is the ketchup made for you at somebody else's house down the street.

If you do mean home-made (and for heaven's sake just say that, instead of sounding like an Applebee's entree description) it implies that nothing else on the menu is made onsite ... do you have the stuff catered in?

Who the hell are you, OP?

You must weigh about a thousand pounds!

Not appetizing to me. I am mostly vegetarian. I do eat many polenta dishes.

You naughty boy! You stole this menu from Gwynnie's grammar school cafeteria, didn't you?

[quote] I never heard of anyone serving it at dinner time.

Grits are served at dinner, especially in the popular Southern dish shrimp and grits. Grits can also be cooled and sliced and prepared the same way polenta can.

Polenta is basically a "dressed up" form of grits. They are the same thing, a porridge made from ground nixitamalized corn. They have the same humble origins, too, as food for poor people and peasants. It is only during the last generation that polenta became a fancy menu item in Italian restaurants. For Northern Italians during the war, it was the humblest of survival foods, not a luxury or anything fancy.

Uggh. Doubtless at the same "Pan-Asian" all-u-can-eat dive at the mall in Trailer Court County, Flyover, USA. Can't you just see it?

GG's desperate bids at sophistication and "urban" glamor are overreaching.

Veal meatballs AND boar ragu? Really?

I don't eat tomatoes, cucumbers, cilantro or olives (that tapanade gunk).

Does he also weigh in at three-hundred plus, OP? Sounds like a hefty pair.

Did the plans for the catering service fall apart? Did GG's two business partners kick him to the curb?
