Thursday Club 8/24/06

- Hummus w/Pita
- Green Lentil Soup
- Beef Briouates
- Moroccan Lamb Stew w/Couscous

After a long break from cooking, I decided to keep the regional theme of my last Thursday Club menu alive & went with a mediterranean night. I had gotten a great cookbook from my brother for my birthday & I used it for all 4 dishes. The meal went without a hitch, although the Brouates didn't come out quite like they look in the book & I really think that the recipe could have benefitted from some sort of sauce (say a mint & yoghurt dipping sauce). Nontheless it was a great meal.

Steaming Bone Juice (it’s not what you think….)

I don’t know what seems so damn appealing about eating the bones of an animal, but I know I like it…..alot. This particular Thursday, I decided to give bone marrow a shot. Easy as pie to make and damn tasty over toast with parsley, lemon zest and garlic oozing down the top. The courses that followed:

- Sausage Stuffed Portobellos
- Herb and Tomato Mako Shark Steaks with Red-Skin
Potato and Crispy Green Bean Salad

On a 90 degree day, maybe choosing 3 oven-cooked items wasn’t the best idea, but the chilled wine helped out the situation (and eventually knocked me on my ass). If Dave was right and we absorbed the power of the animals we ate tonight… the f*ck out Park Slope.
