OK, we’re excited! There’s a new catalog coming out at MagicKitchen.com, with new main dishes, sides and desserts. There are a bunch of new more-fruit-less-sugar pies, I can’t wait to try one. I think I’ll go with the Olallieberry pie first, because it’s such a great word! A cross between a blackberry and a raspberry, I’m told.
Some of the main courses sound intriguing as well-Worcestershire Pork Grillers (as tuffed pork tenderloin), Sage & Herb Stuffed Pork Chop, BBQ Chicken Thighs, Teriyaki Chicken Breast, Sliced Turkey Breast with Gravy, and OH! The chicken pot pie’s going family-sized! We’ll still have the small version, but now we’ll have one that serves 8. I’ll bet that’s popular. I heart the chicken pot pie, it’s the best I’ve ever had. Light and crusty, and the gravy has a little thyme, it’s so flavorful, then chunks of chicken and veggies that aren’t overcooked… oh, sorry, I’m getting distracted.
We’ve got a new lighter lasagna coming, Spinach Mushroom Lasagna With Light Pesto Sauce, as well as a linguine loaded with clams in a marinara sauce. And wait for it- The Bad Boy Shrimp Burrito!
I did a taste test recently on a few dishes (lucky me!). I absolutely adore the fire-roasted vegetables in puff pastry. The pastry is extremely flaky, and it’s stuffed to (almost) bursting with roasted red peppers that still have a little char on the, (I love that), fresh bright green spinach, mushrooms, and these cool little wheatberries. It’s all in a smooth delectable sauce. I’ll have to have that one again.
The Portabella/Shiitake Mushroom Ravioli is fantastic and full-flavored. The meatloaf was good, the brisket was tender with lots smoky barbecue sauce that has a bit of heat to it, and the Chicken Wellington was…just incredible. I didn’t eat this all in one sitting! Oh, the final one I tried was the Almond-crusted salmon, which was sooo good. The fish was moist and the crusting was delish. I don’t know how our chefs do it!
We’ve also added some categories for those with special dietary needs. We have a low-cholesterol and gluten-free categories, as well as the low sodium, low fat, low carb, diabetic friendly, and dairy-free.
OK, the catalog’s calling, I have to get back to work. Keep your eyes open, the new menu’s coming soon!
