Lee's Week of Eats is a Menu Plan I bring you every Friday.  Just a little slice of inspiration to get your weekend going.

Tortilla soup with avocado slices and cilantro crema

White bean, Shallot and Kalamata olive Cassoulet
Baby greens with dill and mushrooms
Sesame Pita Bread
Frisee salad with grapefruit, lime vinaigrette and pepitas
Slivers of apple and Piave Vecchio cheese
Crisp glass of white wine
Golden Indian lentils
Garlic naan
Channa masala
Steamed green beans
Chutneys of all sorts
Cucumber raita

Friday, Breakfast for dinner:
Whole wheat pancakes with Grapefruit and Orange slivers 
Toasted Almonds and Chantilly Whipped Cream
Baked eggs with thyme and cream

Whole Wheat Pancakes 
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 eggs

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the dry ingredients.  In a medium bowl, whisk together the honey, buttermilk, canola oil and eggs.  Stir the wet into the dry, careful not to over mix.  Grease a skillet with a little butter,  on medium high heat and cook pancakes until bubbles appear.  Flip, and cook about two minutes more.  Serve with almonds and citrus fruits -- and plenty of Maple Syrup and Cream, if you dare.

  1. Hey Leela,
    I love your "week of eats"! They're all so thoughtful and inspiring.
    I'm friends with Kate Zonis; she told me about you because I have a blog and am interested in working as a private chef, and food writer.
    I'm a huge fan of your's, and the Kitchn too!
