Saturday Apr 16 - Dinner plans?

Got a chicken brining. I'll stuff it and do some sauteed veggies for our cooked veggie. I have a craving for coleslaw so that will likely be on the menu as well. Dessert will be whatever hits my fancy in the next couple of hours.

Sister and BIL are coming for dinner tonight. I'm making a comfort food meal from our childhood. It's an Armenian dish made with fowl, hulled wheat. It's sort of a gruel topped with brown butter. Appys, salad and dessert will accompany.

Here's a thread that describes how I modernized the process for this dish. Help Me Change a Traditional Cooking Method

Old chickens. They are usually sold as sewing hens. You can tell they aren't bred for their meat as the breasts are small for the overall size as compared to a oven stuffer type chicken. They have a more developed flavor as they are older. They are supposed to be cheaper because they are less 'desirable', but they aren't.

Leftovers here. Spaghetti, cheeseburger pie, sloppy janes, broccoli rice, I think that's it to choose from.

With a freezer full of entrees, I'll be doing leftovers until I get room to make some more.

Tonight is hamburger onion pie.

Risotto with some beautiful oyster mushrooms Craig found Thursday. Going to finish it with the truffled cheese we still have left from our cheese shoppe visit.

DH is going out with friends (I don't have time during tax season), so I will experiment. Some beef strips pounded and stir fried with some hot pepper, mango, grated creamed coconut. Add some fresh ground cumin and coriander, salt and pepper, some beef stock, and corn starch, maybe a tiny bit of freshly ground fennel. I might throw in some sliced celery and carrot. Served with brown basmati rice.

Any other suggestions?
