Menu: Nothing New

Here’s my menu for this week. I usually make all or almost all of everything listed on a given menu though I tend to eat things out of order (sometimes you’re just not in the mood for something or you don’t want to cook a complex dish on the weekend like you thought you would). You can always see the food I actually made on Friday when I post my weekly lunch compilation on @mabmadefood. As usual this menu only has lunches and dinners because we always eat the same breakfast.

Recipe: Matzo Balls

I know there’s so many recipes on the internet for matzo balls and they’ll all create a little different texture but I had a lot of trouble finding one in grams/weight instead of cups which just does not work for me now that I’m in Europe so this is my eventual take on matzo balls. Unlike my grandmothers recipe they only take about two hours to come together also and you’ll get a medium dense but still buoyant ball. You can experiment with flavors but personally I think they should just taste like they do. If you have schmaltz definitely use that but olive oil or vegetable oil also both work.

Recipe: Cauliflower Tart

This tart is so good that my cauliflower hating partner willingly went back for seconds. What I will say is that you cannot skip the step where you roast the cauliflower and you can’t skip blind baking the crust which does make this a kind of tedious recipe for a week night but since this will stay in the fridge for a good four days OR you can freeze the pre-baked or baked tart I would suggest doing this as part of a prep or even being a sneaky genius and making two at a time, eating one and freezing the other for the future.

Recipe: Apple Cinnamon Rolls

In the original recipe they put a glaze on these and I was about to make one but decided to try one without it and I have to say, they don’t need it at all. These rolls are gooey and spicy and apple-y. I kind of cheated by freezing some local apple slices at the height of apple season to use but probably regular good quality apples will produce something really delicious.

Recipe: Focaccia Pizza

If you’re stuck in a rut of pizzas this is a great way to change things up a little. It’s still very low effort and requires just 10 minutes and the knowledge that you’re going to have pizza that night. This pizza comes out of chewy and flaky. Make sure you don’t put too many toppings on, one or two is the maximum it can hold (and make sure they’re cooked or dry because too much water will make the pizza soggy). Because there are so few ingredients make sure you salt your dough well and season your sauce if you want something out of this world.
