Air Fryer Radishes and the Weekly Menu #ImprovCookingChallenge

My neighbor gifted me a huge sack of radishes from their garden.  I love radishes but the rest of my family isn't too crazy about them.  I decided to toss them in the air fryer and see how they turned out.  Oh, my word!!  The bite was gone and replaced by a mild sweetness that my family loved.

It's time for the Improv Cooking Challenge.
This month we are challenged to share Air Fryer Favorites.  Make sure to stop by and see the Air Fryer Whole Pomfret Fish In Cafreal Masala recipe provided by Sneha of Sneha's Recipe.

I was happy because this challenge inspired me to make this side dish.  We tend to eat the same vegetable sides night after night.  

Radishes can be roasted or grilled with the same result.  Next time you find yourself lucky enough to be the recipient of radishes try this cooking method.  I think you will be happy you did. 

Saturday we are attending a 75th birthday party for a friend.  On Sunday we are having a gathering for our group that is going to Egypt next month.  We will be grilling hamburgers and hot dogs and everyone else is bringing a dish.  

On Monday, our Angel Face is coming to spend the week.  She is attending a Theater Camp in the neighboring town and we will be transporting her to her classes each afternoon. I am looking forward to having her.  Our menu will reflect this as I will cook all her favorites.  Not a hardship....she loves steak, salmon, vegetables, and mashed potatoes with gravy.

Here is our menu for the week.  What are you cooking up?
