Menu Plan: August 23 - 29

This is another busy week, but it's at least slowing down a little. Mariam's birthday is this week, and her name day is this week. We are down to one bathroom while we fix the drywall and sink and toilet in our upstairs bathroom. Which means we are using the boys' gross bathroom downstairs. I sent them in with scrub brushes and disinfectant after I had to use it once.

We have a couple repeats this week, but I expected that. We had so much leftover from our fair food that we brought some with us on the first day for our lunch and only bought dinner and snacks/treats there. Since Rich worked the fair booth every day but the first, and I worked every day but the first two, we are both recovering a bit, too.

As usual, fall began today. It always comes the Monday following fair week. We get two or three weeks of fall and then winter starts. That's kind of depressing. Rich is coming up with ways to extend our garden, because we are getting late snap peas and all sorts of lovely things and we'd like to keep harvesting as long as we can.

Below, I include our daily Bible readings which we use to read through the entire Bible each year. We read through all of the Old Testament and New Testament, reading the Psalms and Proverbs twice. Remember that the Psalms are according to eastern numbering in our daily Bible reading, also I Kings is the original designation, it is I Samuel in western Bibles (II Kings is II Samuel in the west, III Kings is I Kings, and IV Kings is II Kings, I Ezra is also called I Esdras in other translations, II Ezra is often translated as Ezra or II Esdras).

What is on your menu this week? If you want a recipe, ask and I will provide it as soon as I can. If there are any starred recipes, I will follow up separately with a weekly recipe round up.

I would love to have your reciept for the yogurt marinade. I have never cooked with safron finding it to be expensive, but may just have to try a little. I can imagine how tasty yogurt would be on the chicken.

I'm sorry it has taken me so long to reply, and I will send a copy of this to your e-mail, too.

I really do it by eye. I use less yogurt than you'd think, because I just need it to coat the chicken, I don't need it in a ton of liquid. So, I'd use a cup of yogurt to the juice of two lemons or so for three or four pounds of chicken. I peel a head of garlic, put it in my blender with about a tablespoon of kosher salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of saffron threads (we get it from my family, and this is a large quantity). I blend those together, then add the yogurt and lemon juice, some black pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. Blend that all up. That's what I marinate the chicken in, and if there is any left, I use it to season kofta, by mixing it with the ground meat and broiling or grilling it.
