January

I just realized that I completely forgot to post this week's menu!
This past week has been Girl Scout Cookies and Snowmageddon, so it completely slipped my mind.
I'm going to go ahead and post menus for this week and then next two so we're done through the end of January.

Jan. 9 to 15 - THAILAND
Dinner (meat or vegetarian) Pad Thai
Dessert Mango & Rice Pudding

Jan. 16 - 22 - ARGENTINA
Dinner (meat & vegetarian) Empanadas
Dessert Panqueques

Jan. 23 - 29 - PERU
Dinner Chicken with Plums
Vegetarian Quinoa Stew
Dessert Picarones

January 2 through 8 we'll be in INDIA.

Dinner: Butter Chicken

Vegetarian: Korma

Side: Naan

Dessert: Kheer

We're almost done with Year One of our culinary tour of the world. Only 7 weeks left!
I am thinking about changing it up a bit for Year Two - possibly choosing an ingredient or cooking technique each week and spending the week exploring how it's approached around the world.
For example, if the ingredient is cumin, we'd try out recipes from Mexico, India, North Africa and Greece. However, before I start working on plans for Year Two, I'd like to get input from the group. Would you prefer to do one country per week with the suggested menus as I have done for Year One, or do you like the weekly ingredient approach? In either case I would still post suggested recipes.

Thanks All, and Happy New Year!!

FYI

Just to let everyone know - I had to switch up a few of the weeks so that the Traditional Thanksgiving Dinner actually fell during the week of Thanksgiving in the US.
I originally made the schedule for the whole year back in March and I got my weeks a little out of sequence. The new sequence is:
11/8 to 11/14 New England
11/15 to 11/21 Nova Scotia
11/22 to 11/28 Midwest US (US Thanksgiving holiday)
11/29 to 12/5 Switzerland (from this point the schedule resumes as before.)

Sorry about the confusion. Happy cooking everyone!
