menu monday*



While my living room is a disaster and I'm trying to figure out what to do with it, I'm going to have a little fun in the kitchen this week. We went out for dinner saturday night to a local Mexican/Yucatan restaurant called Casa Maya. They make delicious potato and avocado empanadas. I'm going to try and re-create the recipe using Pepperidge Farm puff pastry which happens to be vegan. Also, I'm making a sundried tomato and faux sausage calzone. I'm also going to work on a wild rice casserole w/seitan. So here's to a little fun.

  3. Hi Janet, You look like a gourmet chef throwing that dough up in the air! And everything sounds delicious. I use to cook with seitan all the time. I love browning it until it's kind of crunchy on the outside. Yum. xoTrina

  4. Hi dear Janet... o.k, this is one of your menu days. I´ll come back later... well, sorry, so far you know me very well...
    Until 1 month ago I had living with us a niece who was studying for being a chef and she used to prepare yami things for us, but I really never could helped her, I just set the table, it was all I did.

  7. Just had to come by and tell you that the 2nd photo that you liked...there was no fireplace. You don't have to have a fireplace to use a mantel. Thanks for visiting. smiles
