Food for Monday, 2/15/15

What's up at your house?

I'm doing some oven roasted chicken thighs over mounds of dressing that was frozen at Thanksgiving. I love doing them that way, as the dressing is almost like cooking it inside the bird.
Steamed brocccoli will fill out the meal.

I'm baking chicken nuggets. Coated them in mayo instead of beaten egg, then in seasoned panko a la shake and bake.

Not bad at all, nice and crunchy. I'll have to figure out a veggie.

Stir fry sweet and sour chicken. My version won't win any awards, but it's healthy and wife likes it (most important!) , so I keep making it.

Had a piece of aged beef (ie: last week's leftover roast ) that I found in the super-chilled drawer. It passed the sniff test, so I sliced it thin and warmed it in a pan of gravy. Brought up a few wobbly potatoes from the basement. You know the kind, they're old enough they've started to lose some moisture? I peeled the wrinkly parts off, cut them up, and let them re-hydrate in the pan of water until they became firm again, then boiled and mashed. Nuked some frozen corn. Called it dinner.

Made a new recipe today. I made a pork Ragu with a piece of pork shoulder and tomato and herbs it was delicious. Served it over fettuccine.

Her it is:

Genius Pork Shoulder Ragu (a.k.a. The Instant Dinner Party)

I compared this recipe to a couple of others and subbed a tsp. of red pepper flakes for the hot sauce and a tsp of fennel seeds for a "small handful". I upped the garlic to five cloves. I used dry thyme and no oregano. Added two bay leaves.

Thanks Andy. I'm always looking for new ways with a pork shoulder.
