I'm thinking about making Turkish chicken in spicy orange sauce. If I do, I'll definitely make the orzo-rice pilaf again. That was so good

GG how do you make your pilaf? This it one of the first recipes I posted here back in 2010, and I still use it often.

Basically the same, except the recipe I used from my new cookbook only called for water and salt. I wanted to try it as written the first time. I was surprised at how good it was, since I usually like highly seasoned food. The sauces I've served it with were well seasoned, so they went well together. I even enjoyed it plain, though. It must be the toasted orzo.

Amontillado as a braising liquid? Nevermore! Besides, I thought you guys in the Republic of Texas only drink beer and tequila.

Grilling is out of the question tonight. It's started to snow, and we should be getting a foot or so by early tomorrow. Tonight's dinner will be beef and pepper stir fry, served over brown rice.

I'm ahead of you. I already pulled out my 7th book and was looking through the recipes. The orange chicken I mentioned is from this book

I just realized I have bell peppers that need to be cooked, so the orange chicken will have to wait. Looking through the freezer for Plan B.

We are working on a large pot of green chile chicken stew to be had with garlic bread from the freezer.

I’m going to make gnocchi tonight. Sweet potato gnocchi with a white wine pan sauce. I’ve never made gnocchi before, so wish me luck!
