Tuesday 3/29/11 What's Cooking Today?

It's early for dinner plans, but I'll be making up some Wild Rice Medley using some of the Bok Choy Soup for the liquid.

The recipe makes 4 nice qt. size bags for the freezer. They are handy for thawing and adding some seasoned meat and/or vegetables for a quick and easy one pot meal.

What are you cooking today?

I think it will be Souvlaki with Greek Salad and Rice.

Grilled pork on a stick. You can use chicken also. A basic marinade is lemon juice, garlic, oregano, olive oil. A classic Greek dish.

I like it!

I'm going to make up more of the pineapple/brown sugar/soy/ginger marinade to use up the rest of the pineapple can. It worked so well with the pork chops I thought it would be good for using up some cooked chicken.

I'm just going to make up the marinade and reduce it first, then add the cooked chicken and marinade it until this evening; then mix it with some of the Wild Rice I'm making with Bok Choy Soup and heat for dinner.

I recently purchased a non-stick, 6-cup popover pan - the one that Alton Brown used on Good Eats. (BB&B - $17.99) It's cold and rainy outdoors, so I thought today is a good day to give it a try.

I'm doing my best to finish up the soup I made the other night, I just finished a big mug full, and I think I might finish off the fajitas I made last night sometime later today. I may not actually have a true dinnertime meal. Actually, I think I'll put the fajita mixture on some rice, since I remembered using up my last tortillas last night.

Dinner will probably be chili.

This was Breakfast – Chopped onion sautéed in butter, scrambled egg added and cooked till set, served on a lightly buttered poppy seed roll with American cheese.
