Friday Dinner 8/19/16

This is early in the chile season and the experienced roasters are not on hand yet. So you will get several chiles that are under roasted in each case...perfect for chile rellenos. My main method of cooking starts with specific ingredients, an idea of how I want to prepare those ingredients and then search for a recipe that looks look to me. lately I have been coming up with Ree Drummond's recipes. Am using her Lazy Chile Rellenos, which is a baked version.

What are you fixing?

I'm going to be eating late tonight since DH is working until 11 pm. I'm going to make a curry using a garam masala that has a good amount of star anise and cinnamon in it. I have zucchini, chinese radish, and green beans which I supplement with onions, garlic, and celery. I've been cooking tomatoes for canning a sauce and I'm trying a new method, of spooning off the tomato water, to reduce cooking time. I don't want to throw out the tomato water so I'll use it in the curry with my spices, onions, garlic, and celery, and cook it down before I add some coconut milk, and cook that down too. I know it will smell good and if I balance the sweetness and savory flavors and finish it with a little butter, then I'm pretty sure I'm going to like it.

I was at the market the other day, and could not believe my eyes. There was a large display of Hatch hot chiles! I bought a half dozen, and Kayelle roasted and seeded them.

Well, we used a Ree Drummond recipe too, her spinach salad, though I did an extra egg, and a little more of the caramelized onions, dry fried mushies, and a couple of extra pieces of bacon since I wanted to make sure my guy was satisfied and happy so he'd want this again. Misson accomplished!

Hey, that's good info on the Hatch chilis in Santa Paula. I could probably do a round trip in 2-3 hours! I miss getting them roasted in the rotating roasters in Santa Fe, but I miss having them more, enough that I would seriously consider driving to SP and roasting them myself. Needless to say I'd buy as many as I think I could roast and would fit in the freezer. So many good (New) Mexican dishes are better with them!

Smoked a chicken on the stove top.
With that all shredded I made a garlic cream sauce + the usual red pizza sauce.

Just waiting for the dough to rise to make pizza's tonight.

I call dibbs on the chicken/ pepperoni with garlic sauce.
They can have the pepperoni with extra cheese.

Hatch chilies here tonight, too. Sort of a variation on the rellenos theme, these are roasted, stuffed with a cream cheese mixture, wrapped in bacon, and then back into the oven until the bacon is cooked.

The sauce is homemade fire-roasted salsa that I made last fall. I'm down to my last jar, but I probably won't do any canning this year since I'm moving in a few weeks. Too bad, because it's delicious.

That is to die for...Thank you for putting up the picture, now I know what I want to make for tomorrow.

Mmmm....looks and sounds fabulous, Steve!

I'm warming up planned leftovers from yesterday - a cheese enchilada, a small scoop of refried black beans, and fixin' to make a side salad to go along with it. Iced tea with fresh lemon to wash it all down. I'd prefer an ice cold Modelo with a lime wedge, but don't have any and don't feel like a trip to the store.
