i'm trying to get some ideas for what to make tomorrow. i have some hot italian sausage, chicken thighs, and snow crab that needs to be cooked. i was thinking of a paella like dish, but all i have is brown basmati, arborio, and a basmati mix with dried veggies. not sure if one of them would work.

has anyone cooked orange lentils before? do they retain their color when cooked? i'm thinking of going with the 3 aforementioned proteins with the lentils. will be searching for recipes.

soooo, whatcha cookin' or eatin' this evening?
Paella is one of my fave dishes on the planet. In a pinch you could pick up a Spanish rice mix. (I have a quickie recipe with marinated artichoke hearts, clams? etc.). Posted a recipe for tomato paella, if you have a chance try a search. Very yummy. Off topic - heard the writers walked out on strike. Hope it doesn't effect anyone here.

I have a hankering for butternut squash-filled ravioli w a butter sage sauce (food network & posted here), or double spaghetti squash (spaghetti squash & spaghetti) with parmesan, butter, garlic and herbs. And, there's one more slice of pumpkin pie & whipped cream I need to finish off. I may stop at my fave thai place again & pick up their pad thai noodle & garlic shrimp & save the squash ravioli for tomorrow. Decisions, decisions.

She has some isuues with anything spicy so it will be a comfort food dinner.

Have some chicken marinating in balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, scallions, sugar, salt, and pepper. Will bake briefly, then finish on the countertop grill. Haven't decided on the sides yet. Buck will have his favorite candy for dessert...candy corn. This is his time of the year! The candy corn is abundant.

Katie, tell Buck to mix some dry roasted peanuts in with his candy corn, it taste just like a "Payday" candy bar. My favorite !!

We're having Chicken cordon bleu with alfredo noodles and sweet peas. It's one of our nights home together. With our night classes (he teaches at one campus, I'm student at different campus) we don't have many nights home together.
