Last week I never was able to upload my link to the squash and pear soup? This week I still don't see the post for that recipe? Anyway, on to this week...
I'm not a fan of lamb. I had all the good intentions of making a lamb and beef version and well, let's just say that didn't happen. I am going to redeem myself and make the recipe again with lamb next week at work.
I wasn't able to find Cardamon at my grocery store, so used a substitution of cinnamon and nutmeg. The smell of this dish cooking was delicious! I added some peas to the stew at the end of cooking and served over rice. The flavours in this recipe were great. I'll have to admit I rushed the braising of my beef to the cries of "are we ever going to eat dinner?" So the meat wasn't fall apart tender. Hopefully, it will be more of a hit with the lamb on Tuesday when I make it for the residents at the home where I work.
I haven't decided what I'm going to make next week, but it will probably be something sweet. I also have Dorie's Baking book so may choose something from there? I will be doing another stuffed pumpkin for my vegetarian sister inlaw for dinner.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving next week. We're going to a Thanksgiving service and dinner with other Americans that live in Guernsey on Thursday. And I'm cooking for 15 next Saturday... Yikes! Will be a wonderful week and in all the hurry and chaos that the holidays can bring, pause and give thanks!
Blessings to all of you and Happy Thanksgiving!
