Dinner Friday 9/19/14?

It's going to be hotel and fair food this weekend. We are keeping up the family tradition of taking his kids to the fair. Two of DH's four children live in Albuquerque and we are meeting up with them at the New Mexico State Fair. I am assuming there will be great food at the fair.

What are you having?

I'm making this: Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta Recipe - Food.com tonight.

It's a recipe pacanis posted quite a while ago and I had it on hold as SO doesn't like cream sauces. Tonight's the night.

Oh my, Beth! Bacon pecan pie caramel apple! It was tough to wrap my mind around that till I saw the description. Wow, I bet that will be good! Enjoy!

Don't know what I'm making for dinner yet. I bought a 7-lb. pork shoulder, pork chops and BLSL chicken breasts a while ago. Maybe we'll grill the pork chops.

Leftovers. Not just any leftovers, but the leftovers from today's photo shoot. I prepared Grilled veggies (zucchini, fennel, tomato, yellow and orange peppers), halloumi cheese, and chorizo sausage. These where cut into bite size pieces and tossed with farro, drizzled with some EVOO and grilled lemon (the lemon was grilled and squeezed overtop). This salad was topped with Romanesco sauce, black olives, chopped chives, basil, and Italian parsley. Once my batteries charge, I'll post a pic. It was such a fun day--I love getting paid to play in the kitchen, not to mention the leftovers! The other recipe I got to test drive was a chicken and pork sausage "meatball" stew served over panfried gnocchi Parisienne. This was the first time I made gnocchi Parisienne. It would have helped if the chef who developed the recipe had tested it--the gnocchi dough needed 1/4 c more flour even after letting it cool. The photographer and I ate that for lunch--no leftovers. The photographer makes the food I make look soooooo good! My photo will not be anything like hers.

I have two spatchocked game hens in Goya's Mojo Criollo marinade. I'll grill them later along with a basket of marinated veggies, and we'll have green Mexican rice made with salsa verde, sliced olives and cheese on top.

Last night's large, stuffed chicken is tonight's leftovers. There are a few other remnants of this week's food in the fridge that are above it in the pecking order though, so I could end up with much of the chicken for yet another night. Himself may just end up with soup anyway. He goes practically nowhere, yet he managed to get a cold. Guess he mail-ordered it. Oh, I'd better not laugh - I'm planning on a garage sale next weekend.

My photo is nowhere near as nice as the professional photographer's.

Goulash (or Chili Mac or American Chop Suey, if that's your preference).
