Thursday 2/17/11 What's Cooking

Shopping is done. A late lunch will be quick & easy Gazpacho. (Vegetable juice mixed with some chunky salsa.) I'm just waiting for the ingredients to chill.

Dinner will probably be late too: Clam Chowder made with canned clams, both minced and chopped, clam juice, milk and evaporated milk with onions, celery and garlic toasted until golden and soft.

Has to be gentle and simple tonight; dd is enjoying ill health AKA getting over the flu. Leaning toward chicken breasts in a lemon/garlic/rosemary sauce with a roasted garlic couscous. Probably creamed spinach. Celery sticks, grape tomatoes, and kalamata olives as relishes. Her favorite meal (except for the spinach; she prefers broccoli)

No dessert, but I have some homemade cinnamon bread that is crying to become French toast at about 10, if the patient is hungry again; it WANTS to be introduced to the last little bit of stewed dried apples from fried pie making.

I tried a new meat market here and so far so good! The philly cheesesteak was great but I wasn't paying attention and they shaved the whole roast for me so now I have a ton (or 3lbs)...looking up shaved beef recipes now. Maybe bulgogi tomorrow and freeze the rest?

How about beef stir fry?

A favorite recipe of mine with shaved beef is "steak and peppers". Fry up the beef then put in a large pot with sliced green peppers and your favorite spaghetti sauce. Add herbs and seasoning to your taste. Simmer on low, covered, until the peppers are soft and the meat is tender. Server over rice, mashed potatoes, or even on sub rolls with melted cheese (done under the broiler of course to crisp the roll).

I went to the store with NO idea for dinner, except that I had already pulled leftover spiral sliced ham out of the freezer.
In the produce department they had diced raw butternut squash, so there was a starting point. My wife is trying to avoid potatoes and bread, so I went with something different.
I did an eggplant, leek, butternut squash, ham and mushroom au gratin(with skim milk and just a little cheese) seasoned with smoked cumin and curry powder
It was wonderful, I would highly recommend
