Your best bet is to do a Google search - I say that only because you will get to see some history along with recipes.

I can't decide what I'm having for dinner - it could be:

fish stew
sauteed tilapia - breaded or not, can't decide
15-bean soup

whatever I decide I will have to go to the store to get the remainder of ingredients

Chili dogs with the leftover chili from Friday's dinner. So much for the diet. I did go easy on the cheese with mine. Do I get credit for that?

I finally put that chicken in I was going to cook Saturday. It hasn't been in 15 minutes and the smell is driving me crazy. I think its the fennel and the wine. If it tastes half as good as it smells.......

OK, dinner is over, I'm stuffed. I oven braised the chicken in white wine and seasonings with fennel, golden potatoes and carrots. I started by adding basil/dried tomato olive oil in the roaster instead of a non-stick spray. I buttered the chicken so the top would brown nicely and I like the flavor. After buttering I added my spices(mixed various spices I like). Then put a couple of cups of dry white into the roaster, same amount of water.

When it was done I took the broth in the pan and boiled it down a bit, then added some corn starch dissolved in milk and brought that to a boil to slightly thicken the sauce.

Wow, the top skin, nice and crisp, the meat moist, flavorful and the fennel, veggies... outstanding.

They are also known as wild leeks. Found in woodlands in the south (and close to me in WV) they taste like a cross between onions and garlic. Eat them raw and you stink for two days. My recipe calls for roasting the bottoms and simmering the tops in a wine/chicken stock mix. Google "ramps" and you will learn a lot!

Don't know as I am not hungry so nothing is captivating to my senses right now. Later, I'll decide.

Southern Home-Made Chicken and Dumplings. For a pre-dinner I fixed croissant sandwiches with ham and cheese.

I am making pork chops with a mushroom ragu, smashed potatoes, steamed snap peas and a caprese salad. I will be having everything except the chop, of course, and I use my veggie stock for the potatoes and ragu.
Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffeine-free and loving it!

Baked a chicken, and served my girls and I hot chicken sandwiches with gravy and steamed veggies.

Comfort food. :)

If you think you can, or think you can't....you're right!
