These are posted in chronological order as I made them.
I bought some fresh sage and with the thought of a sage and brown butter sauce in the back of my mind I made some ravioli using wontons out of my freezer. The filling was a simple and tasty sweet potato/Parmesan mixture. I garnished with toasted pine nuts cause I forgot to put them in the filling. Delicious and easy.
I baked off the extra wontons in muffin tins and filled the crispy cups that resulted with shrimp in a bang bang sauce (copycat recipe from the Cheesecake factory).
The baked cups are REALLY dry and crispy and will stand up for hours to the moistest filling. I didn’t LOVE the cups but the shrimp filling was really good.
I also made a delicious Jonagold apple pie-like filling which was great over pancakes, and, along with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, made for a tasty sweet filling for the baked wonton cups. By the way, the cups also freeze well.
I also made breaded chicken cutlets … for Chicken Parmigiana and easy, but just as tasty, chicken cutlet sandwiches on the leftover fougasse mentioned above.
Lemon curd for another batch of limoncello tiramisu. I splurged and made it a double layer version instead of the more modest one I made the first time.
And then there were the baked beef meatballs that I used to top some pasta with home made marinara sauce.
A couple of other meals … pan fried boneless pork loin chops and a sauteed mushroom, sage and asiago cheese souffle … cause I had all 3 in the house at the same time
Salmon dressed with tzatziki sauce over Mexican rice. I’m digging deep in the freezer for the proteins to cook.
I had a chicken liver craving so I made this comfort dish. Not pretty but yummy.
And those were the July highlights.
