What's cookin Wed. Feb 4 '15

Thought an early start on the dinner thread was a good idea. I have no idea what's for dinner tonight, so looking for inspiration.

I'll be cracking some stone crab claws for dinner which will go with some homemade mustard sauce. Haven't decided what will go with them.

Not surprising from the size of that gorgeous tri tip you cooked the other night ! I've been known to use it for pot pies too.

I made minestrone (using a ham hock, leeks, red lentils, carrots, french beans, spaghetti pieces, potatoes, tomatoes, bayleaf, chicken stock and chilli). Tasty! (Haven't learnt to adjust date on camera yet).

I bought some ENORMOUS shrimp at the store today. They are about 3 ounces each, so one or two is enough for each of us for dinner.

Now I just need to decide how I'm going to cook these monsters. I'm thinking it will be a fairly simple preparation - maybe just a quick saute with some fresh herbs.

Nice pic, creative! I love minestrone and should make it before it gets too hot here to enjoy it.

Kay...yes, that was a big tri tip, almost 3 lbs. Pot pie is a good idea for leftovers, if I could just make a smallish one. Gosh, cooking for one and still trying to keep in mind the leftovers for a great cut of meat isn't easy. I should have cut it in half and frozen the other half when I bought it, but I didn't.

Steve...holy cow, 5 shrimp/lb are some hefty shrimp. Looking forward to hearing how you made them, and seeing pics of your dinner.

Cheryl, there's no reason why you couldn't freeze some of that cooked tri tip and come back to it later for an easy dinner.

I'll probably have leftover fried chicken from lunch with a pudding cup. Still eating mostly soft foods.
