Weekly Menu — 10/5/2013

Week of October 5th

  • We are headed to the Four Seasons for a celebratory birthday dinner with friends.


  • Grilled lamb & fig skewers with peppery mint-apricot glaze
  • Grilled eggplant slices
  • Horta (this is so much fun to say! Try it. Horta, horta, horta.) Get yourself a huge bunch of fresh greens such as swiss chard or kale. Blanch quickly in boiling water, drain and serve with good olive oil, sea-salt and lemon juice. This is deceptively delicious.


  • Fresh ahi tuna from the farmer’s market. I plan to drown this in Livornese sauce with a splash or two of my new, award-winning olive oil from Portugal. I could drink this stuff!
  • The last of the farmer’s market freshly grilled corn on the cob
  • Green salad with apple, walnuts and fennel


  • Leftover lamb & fig skewers
  • Greek salad with cucumbers, tomatoes, avocados and chunks of feta. I love this simply dressed with red wine vinegar, olive oil and handfuls of fresh oregano


  • Lobster night! My husband is picking up 2 live, honking lobsters from Frank’s Seafood Market. I will keep it simple — just steam them and serve with clarified butter and lemon. Heaven.
  • Arugula salad with grapes, lemon & olive oil
  • Fresh grilled corn




  • Date Night!
