What's Cooking?

I've planned a cooking day today:

Split pea soup with Andouille

Taco meat mixture, half of which will be turned into tamale pie/casserole (dinner). The other half will be frozen for other uses.

Andouille hash (browns)

I'm also planning a broccoli cheese soup, but it will probably not get started today.

Thanks Rock, CW.
I saw some recipes and was surprised to see none of them included butter, so I guess it's (the butter flavor) all in the powder/spice. I'll have to pick some up.

One of the ones I looked at had 1 c of butter...which to me seamed like a LOT.

I'm thinking of making the sauce and dumping chunks of leftover turkey in it, serve it over rice...

Butter Chicken

Since the subject has come up, here's a link to my recipe for BC. It looks complicated but you're not doing anything different from what you do for recipes from other cuisines. The ingredients are not as common but the procedures are familiar.

I have some things I need to use up in the fridge so it's a "let's see if how this stuff tastes if I throw it together" kind of night. Decided I'm going to try strawberry lime chicken and linguini tossed with an asiago cream sauce. Green beans as a veggie. I'll let you know how it works out.

I think we will stay with the Asian theme... ;). Some kind of stir fry, not sure, if it will be beef, chicken or shrimp. I also have some Filipino Lumpia in the freezer that my DD & S-I-L made, (needs to get used before freezer burn sets in) DH is making a rhubarb/berry crisp. Lots of rhubarb in the freezer to get used before the fresh starts in a few weeks ;)
I see some Rhubarb juice in my future .....
