Weekly Menu Planner: Nov. 8, 2013

        A word about fortified wines: I use both Madeira and 'semisecco' Marsala (medium) during the year.  Ideally I have both and a bottle of each will last me all year - for cooking. If I can only get one, I will use it in all recipes.  You could substitute medium or cream sherry or other fortified wines.
The flavor of the dish will be slightly different depending on what you use.
Marsala is Italian, from Sicily; Madeira comes from the Portuguese island of Madeira; and Sherry comes from Spain. There are cheap (fine for cooking) and expensive versions of all of three.
And you can always have a small glass after dinner as a 'digestif'.
   Bon Appétit!
