March 1st! What are we cooking today?

I've got some mushrooms left over from my pizza last night, so I'm thinking about sautéing them and sliding a grilled steak underneath. A couple smashed redskins on the side and probably broccoli. That will be dinner.
Probably left over pizza for lunch.

Anyone else have their menus planned yet?

A take on Richard Blaise's Top Chef All Stars pork, chili and arepas dish he did when they were cooking at Target. Obviously had to cut down on the quantity since he was cooking for over 100 people and I'm going to make the arepas instead of buying them as I don't like the pre-made ones. Cooked the pork over the weekend so it's ready to go, just needs to be warmed. We roasted the chilis ourselves, well Craig did, so they just have to be sliced and warmed. Only thing I'll need to make is the arepas.

Spaghetti here too. Sauce is simmering lightly on the stove. Folks can serve themselves as they wander home tonight.

OK, you talked me into it.
I'll toss my mushrooms into spaghetti sauce instead, along with the bits of meat I had leftover from last night. No meatballs though, I'll cook rope sausage with mine. Spaghetti sounds nice.

I'm making us a shrimp and pasta dish with roasted red peppers, shallots, and mushrooms in a white wine and butter sauce.

I made some turkey stock last week--so today it is turkey-wildrice-mushroom soup with homemade whole wheat rolls, fresh pineapple for dessert.

For the tuekey soup, I add edameme (sp) about 4-5 minutes before serving, the same time I add the cubed turkey. Otherwise, it is pretty standard--carrots, celery, onion (I brown the onion, put that in with the stock (diluted with some water), wild rice). Once the rice is almost done, I add the carrots and celery. For spices/herbs a dash of cinnamon, 3-4 cloves in a "teaball," sage, salt, pepper, fresh bay leaf, splash of fresh lemon juice (at the end) and a drop or two of Liquid smoke (at the beginning), oh, and about 1 tsp of maple syrup.

I have home made pizza in the offing.

Pepperoni.
Crimini mushrooms.
Mini sweet peppers.
Red onion.
Black olives.
Cheese and sauce.

Since they are smallish we get to top our own.
