Week 10: Seven Sauces

This week I have been feeling a little saucy - no mother - that says saucy not sassy. I have found that the perfect sauce can make a meal. On Matthew's plate my sauces resemble more of a soup than a sauce, but I think that he's got the right idea. Sauces can bring life to a dry run down dish and work wonders for leftovers. In fact, that's its job - check this out to find out everything you did...and didn't want to know about sauces. Some would testify that this is why I use sauces so much. But, as in most French cooking, the sauce is usually where there is not only an abundance of flavor but an abundance of fat....in fact that fat is what gives it the flavor. Trying to make up for the loss of animal fat can be difficult in sauces but I hope this week you'll find that fat isn't the only way to get some flavor in your diet.

Week 11
Monday: Basic White Sauce / Alfredo
Tuesday: Marinara
Wednesday: Hollandaise Sauce
Thursday: Pesto
Friday: Nacho Cheese
Saturday: Enchilada Sauce
Sunday: Brown Gravy

Most of these are just a base sauce that you can do with what you will. Feel free to explore the possibilities.
