Dinner Wednesday, 12/10/14

Yesterday I deboned the turkey I roasted on Sunday so am into full leftover poultry mode. I am eyeing a recipe from my new favorite southwestern cookbook; chicken sour cream enchiladas. First I need to make the green chile sauce.

What are you thinking about (for dinner)?

Poussin with Devilled Sauce.

A touch crispy on top.

I'm thinking of quickly pan searing some boneless chicken breast with garam masala, onions and cilantros and serving it with some cumin flavored Indian spice rice. The prep shouldn't take more than 20-30 mins to prepare.

That looks great Wyshiepoo, and welcome!

I have some broccoli and half and half that needs to be used, so this evening's dinner will be cream of broccoli soup and a slice of toasted garlic bread. I'll add a small Yukon gold to the broccoli as it's simmering and top the finished soup with a little shredded cheddar.

I'm using some of Sunday's ham for scalloped ham and potatoes. I'll make two small casseroles just to make sure I actually HAVE half of it leftover for another meal. I'll hide one dish in the freezer, ready to heat and eat some busy day down the road. We'll probably have some steamed broccoli on the plate - color contrast, you know - unless I make big salads.

I just did the broccoli thing too, only I made a cheese sauce. It's pretty strong, so I'll probably thin it down some.

I used Asiago, Pepper Jack, and Monterrey Jack in a cream of chicken base.

Waiting for the grains to finish cooking. Not sure what I'll do with them, but I'm thinking tossing the grains with some red peppers, cabbage, zucchini, onion, chickpeas...some soy sauce, EVOO, some smoked tofu and calling it done.

I see you're not cooking from scratch tonight.
