Question Anyone cookin dinner tonight? 1/11 Wed

I have navy and pinto beans soaking in water. The market will provide my ground pork/beef, and after simmering all day together, the smell of cumino, chili powder, onions and garlic will fill the air and whaft while permiating the abode. Tonight, it's chili here. Dessert will be the ginger bread cake and warm lemon sauce from last night.

Are you cooking? If so, what so?

I have lentils and kielbasa in the Crockpot right now. I prepped everything last night and had my wife just turn it on this morning after I left for work. The house should be smelling great right about now.

We lost a dear friend yesterday, so HB pulled a smoked pork butt out of the freezer, reheated slowly at 250, then shredded it up for sandwiches. I also have a pumpkin cream pie thawing. We'll go to the house tonight and take the food.

That is sad Connie, the food you're bringing will help a lot. When things like this happen we don't think about what we are going to eat. So friends who stop by with homemade offerings are to be cherished for their thoughtfulness.

Constance, I'm sorry about your friend. Seems like every now and then we are stopped in our tracks by such news. We lost 3 very good friends in about 6 weeks and it really had an effect on me. Taking the food is a very good way to help the others thru their suffering.

I'm sorry too. Very nice of you to take them such a good dinner.


I have chicken thawing... not sure what to do with it.. maybe

CHICKEN POMODOR0 ( from Cuisine at Home)

4 chicken cutlets
2 tablespoons veggie oil
1/4 cup vodka

1/2 cup chicken broth
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1/2 cup freshly chopped tomatoes
2 Tablespoons heavy cream ( I only have whole milk..but, it'll do for tonight)

1/3 cup scallions, I'll have to use some sweet onion

Season chicken with salt and pepper
and dust with flour.

Saute chicken in veggie oil. Transfer to a platter
and pour off extra fat.

Deglaze pan with vodka (AWAY FROM THE FLAME!!!)
and cook until the vodka is nearly gone.
Add the broth and lemon juice.

Return chicken to pan and cook each side one minute.
Transfer chicken to warm platter.

Fisnish the sauce with tomatoes and cream. Heat through
and then pour over the cutlets.

Garnish with the scallions.


Since I don't have scallions and will be using sweet onions... do
you think I should saute them along with the chicken?

Connie, I am very sorry to hear that... I hope and believe your lovely food will lift some spirits, they are lucky to have friends like you and your hubby!!

For us it is a "make some room for our freezer" night, I am taking out some stuffed giant mushrooms, pre-grilled aubergene (to be sautčed with some onions and bacon), and bell-pepper creme/sauce for the pasta.
