A new year means a new year of old Everyday Food Magazines! This year, I'm working through the third year of EFs that I have in my cupboard, 2007.
2007 was a momentous year here on the mountain. J moved in, we got married, and I started my last year of teaching before joining the ranks of administration. Exciting! Perhaps I should blame all of those things going on in my life for why I seem to have made very little from these issues the first time around.
But no matter. In one of the few instances where hoarding isn't a problem and can be viewed merely as an opportunity, I'll revisit the issues this year and see what gems there are to be gleaned from their pages.
The Jan/Feb issue, as always, is the Light issue. It promises to be Heavy on Flavour, and includes a French menu. Can you guess what piqued my interest? It also boasts 122 recipes and tips. I only need 6. Just as well, when I started looking at recipes.
The All in 1 Bag feature relied heavily on turkey, which J doesn't eat. There were also a variety of things that I didn't think sounded appetizing to me. I was commenting to my mother last month that when I look at the recipes that I choose every month, there are very few desserts now. That is once again the case with only 1 making the list. Frankly, any of these should be delicious. And in exciting news, I've already made my first recipe! I present to you now what we plan to eat around here from the Jan/Feb 2007 issue of Everyday Food:
- Molten Mocha Cakes
- Ginger Carrot Soup
- Salmon Tacos
- Pork Cutlet with Arugula and Sauteed Tomatoes
- Weekend Dinner Menu: Wine-Braised Chicken, Salad with Celery, Red Onion and Croutons, Steamed Potatoes with Parsley, and Crepes with Sauteed Apples
- Wild Rice Pilaf
So here's to a new year and the delicious adventures that await!
