What's cooking? July 5, 2015

It's another cooking day today, but it won't take up so much time today.

I already made Gazpacho.

Next will be broccoli with ham and cheddar cheese sauce. I'll divide the results into containers keeping one for the fridge, and the rest in the freezer.

This afternoon it's Chicken Livers Paprikash. Some for dinner tonight and the rest for the freezer.

All this will leave me with no room in the freezer, so I'll spend a few days not cooking anything new.

What's cooking at your placce?

I am thawing some chicken thighs for grilling tonight. We'll add some potato and tossed salads to go along with that.

Went to a couple of farmer's markets today. Going to grill some spicy pork stuffed mushrooms, potatoes and then just offer crudites sprinkled with a bit of sea salt, feta and 9 grain bread from the bakery down the street.

Italian-American dinner. I just finished making potato gnocchi which are resting until they get cooked. After a short break, I'll start making the meatballs and marinara, using some of the "mother" sauce Karen made and froze last month. Karen will make garlic knots. A nice bottle of Ruffino, Riserva Ducale, Chianti Classico, 2010.

Since the weather cooperated and we were able to grill hamburgers last night, Himself will grill the bratwurst tonight after I simmer it in beer, then we'll plop them onto kraut-laden buns. I'll doctor up yesterday's potato salad, adding some crisp bacon bits, thin discs of scallion greens, and maybe some tiny chunks of cheddar cheese.

It was a makeshift idea based on some cooked chicken wings I had and having to use up some homemade frozen chicken stock. I made a substantial soup/stew, with onions, garlic, chopped carrot, tomato puree, the chicken stock, bay leaves, red lentils, small pasta shapes (designed for soups), frozen peas, the chopped chicken and some leftover cooked new potatoes!

I wasn't sure the soup would be substantial so, whilst it was cooking, I had the remainder of my previously made salad of grated celeriac, apple and carrot (with a fruit juice dressing). I jazzed it up by adding some raisins and toasted flaked almonds. Both dishes were very good. I overate!

We'll have leftovers here. Went to Ruby Tuesdays for lunch after church to use our gift card from Christmas. Had a big lunch so neither of us is particularly hungry. There's roast beast, rice, a little chicken, and 2 hamburgers and a bit of kidney bean salad.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!
