DH wants to grill, even though it's pretty cold outside, so we're having chicken leg quarters rubbed with olive oil and Penzey's Greek seasoning, roasted fingerling potatoes tossed with olive oil, S&P and more Greek seasoning, and roasted asparagus. I may make a balsamic reduction to drizzle on the asparagus, for something different from the oregano/lemon/garlic in the Greek seasoning. We ended up having vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce for dessert yesterday, so I still have that mixed berry gratin on my mind for dessert.

Tonight I made cod with a creamy pesto sauce to cover it. One the side I made butter and garlic sautéed scallops and broccoli. The broccoli was more of an experiment with a pinch of curry and a few cloves of garlic. It was only my second big meal I've ever made, and the first one I've ever made using fish.

Chardonnay, for only your second meal, you're on a great roll!

I thawed some Sunday Gravy. Added some leftover chicken to it. Kept some chicken aside and added it to some gravy I made this week. Some good chiabatta rounded out the meal.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

Tonight, we had soup/stew made from yesterdays turkey bones. I included scallions, navy beans, carrots, celery, corn, peas, potato and noodles. the starches in the potato and noodles made the broth fairly thick. I served it with a whole wheat crusty bread (without butter or oil) and we had a great tasting and healthy meal.
I also had an Australian Sharaz called Red Knot. Most excellent!

We had Rib Eye steak, Shrimp in a garlic and shallots white sauce over angel hair pasta, and a green salad. I love DC because it is helping me expand my cooking experience. I never would have tried to make the shrimp and pasta dish before I found this site. Love to read and learn from all of you.

Moroccan-spiced orange chicken with brown rice and scallions. Steamed broccoli on the side.

I'm making Split Pea soup this afternoon, and my "famous" Oatmeal/Whole Wheat bread. It's cold and windy here!

Is this recipe posted here some where? Sounds good.
