Menu Plan

I decided to attack my stash of cookbooks for recipes this week and boy, did I chose an eclectic group! I’ve  had the Momofuku cookbook for a while but have been too scared to try anything from it. This fear is for good reason trust me, one of the recipes call for “half a pig’s head (8 to 10 pounds)” – I think David might have a heart attack if I pursued that one. Below is the list, there are no links, but should something turn up that’s just grand I’ll be sure to post here.

  • Jamaican Jerk Marinated Salad from the Neiman Marcus Cookbook (2003) – still one of my favorite cookbooks of all time
  • Fried Chicken with Ginger Scallion Noodles from the Momofuku cookbook (2009) – I’m still nervous and this one looks some what easy…?
  • Breakfast Burger and Fruit Fries from the Burger Bar cookbook (2009) – these burgers are the best in Vegas, let’s see if I can recreate that magic here in Austin
  • Honey Glazed Grilled Pork Chops and Braised Carrots with Tarragon and Lime – Pork Chops from the latest Edible Austin and the carrots are from The Lee Bros. Simple Fresh Southern cookbook (2009)
Wish me luck!
