What's cooking Monday 2/22/2016?

Lunch was tuna salad on baguette with baby rocket instead of lettuce and First run shortcut French onion soup in my little Dutch ovens. It was a short cut with Campbell's soup and next time I will do from scratch.



Dinner should be the chicken wings held over from yesterday. Chicken wings with buffalo sauce (butter and Frank's and blue cheese dressing) or BBQ sauce (I picked up Stubb's original to try) to dip in. If DD wants to she can coat some in BBQ sauce put them on the char broil with some smoke chips to get some bark. And salad (TJ's baby rocket and Sorrento greens mix with TJ's sweet onion and bacon dressing).

We're doing the fridge-clean thing again tonight. I swear my leftovers propagate while we sleep. Going to add some capers (!) and grape tomatoes to what's left of yesterday's cauliflower dish to see if I can give it more flavor. Maybe some oregano, too.

We're having the other half of the roast chicken I cooked a couple of weeks ago. SO requested mashed potatoes and green peas for sides.

I'm doing pan-seared scallops - HUGE ones! I usually do a simple white wine, butter, lemon pan reduction, but I'm looking for something different tonight.

Playing with flavor ideas - saffron - coconut milk - orange - ginger - cream - ??? Not necessarily all at once, but anyone have ideas?

I just watched an episode of Bobby Flay's Barbecue Addiction where he made a mint-pea vinaigrette to go over grilled scallops. Looked pretty good!

I can't believe I signed up for hospitality for the Master Gardener class three weeks in a row! So I'm making dinner for a large group again - with three others, but still.

So today I made white chicken chili with corn and tomatillos. I've never made it before, but DH helped once he got home from work (he roasted and pulverized the tomatillos I had thawed from the garden). I started prepping things yesterday so it was easier today.

So I'm having that and DH is having leftover spaghetti and meatballs.

I pulled the meaty frame of a pork roast out of the freezer and cooked it low and slow for a couple of hours with some sauerkraut, chopped onion and caraway seeds.

Not sure what else I'll have, my poor brain is stuck on mashed potatoes and ice cold chunky applesauce.

Oh well, that was then and this is now!

I bought some beautiful big scallops today with the intention of pan searing them for dinner. Ended up going out to lunch and stuffing myself with a chicken sandwich and fries, so the scallops went into the coldest part of the fridge and will become tomorrow's dinner. I'll just snack on bits and pieces of leftovers this evening.
