A peasant weekend

Pea has spent saturday making her own catering arrangements for the rest of the week, when she will be tired, and not in any frame of mind to be cooking.  To further a sluggish week, she has been busy busy busy now, assembling a very peasanty collation to tide her over til *next* weekend 🙂

That much kitchen activity puts Peapod’s mom on the sofa with a migraine 🙂

On Friday, she made a nice big roast beef…with mushroom and red wine gravy, mashed taters and corn.  There is plenty of beef left for a new incarnation with some novel sides. Today, she made some seriously melty tender pork chops, and really yummy gravy, and speatzle (extra crispy) and sweet ‘n’ sour cabbage and green beens….plenty for a rerun, maybe on teusday, grommit.

After dinner Mr. Pea tried an experiment…she wasn’t brave enough to try it…he poured maple syrup on some spaetzle, and proclaimed it a taste sensation…

Pea is dubious.

Tomorrow she plans to roast a big fat hen, with a duxelle, bacon, and chedder stuffing.  Sides are as yet to be determined…but that will be a very spiffy Sunday dinner, and will make even better bone-pickin’s later in the week.

In the middle of all that, she put up six jars of tomatoes, made a nice big field-green salad, and decanted the raspberry vinegar she had been infusing for the last few days. 🙂

Dontcha all wish you were noshing at Pea’s pod? 🙂
