What's Cooking for Sunday, April 15, 2012?

We're having guests over tonight for our quarterly dinner meetup. So, a little fancier than usual this evening. Since we're hosting, we're contributing the main course.

I'm making pan seared duck breasts with a chipotle blood orange reduction sauce, and oven roasted sweet potatoes with ancho chile and lime.

Hmmm...good question. I'm thinking of going freezer diving.

I have two extra thick poke chops I plan to stuff with spinach, feta and pine nuts.

Teriyaki chicken thighs, roasted fresh asparagus, tossed salad of mixed greens and cherry tomatoes with homemade vinaigrette, garlic baguette, iced tea, and cream cheese pound cake for dessert.

Still home, but planing on going to store pick couple-three good stakes, maybe some hamburgers and grill. Side of baked potato and salad. Hope tornado is going to go around us.

I took a pork shoulder roast out of the freezer and already have my mess in place (mise en place) for Chipotle Pork with two adjustments; I am replacing the honey with agave nectar because it's easier to work with and I am using turkey broth instead of chicken broth because I have some I have to use up. The pork will be accompanied by red beans and rice, and a Southwest Caesar salad.

If my butt doesn't thaw out in time I have some leftover meatloaf and mashed potatoes in the back of the refrigerator, and some petite white corn in the freezer as a backup. I'll open a bottle of Zin to go with the chipotle pork, but I think an Italian Barbera will go better with the meatloaf.

I don't exactly know yet. I just made my best ever Mexican Cornbread that smells just OUT of THIS WORLD! So whatever we have - it'll be wrapped around this aromatic discovery that has us drooling. Even Chester the cat is acting like I slipped some catnip in it. Poor Kitty will be so disappointed to learn of the Jalopenoes that went into it. A friend gave me this recipe & I am sooo very grateful!
