What's Cooking Thursday, 3/31/11

I was thinking about RockLobster and his dog's recent advanture with the porcupine.

I was also thinking about dinner, which I decided would be taco meat mixture and some of the wild rice blend I made yesterday using some bok choy broth.

After I mixed them together, i was thinking about how it would make some really nice meatballs, and I came up with this:

PORCUPINE BALLS

Cooked wild/brown rice blend
Taco meat mixture
Egg to bind.

Form balls loosely so the rice sticks out a little.

Put on a baking sheet or in a muffin tin.

Spoon a little taco sauce or salsa on each porcupine.

Bake 350 for about 30 minutes.

So that's what's for dinner here. What are you making?

I bought some beautiful yellow fin tuna steaks at the market and will marinate them in sesame oil, garlic, lemon juice and zest, ginger, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper, then lightly grill them. We're going to have baked potatoes, steamed Italian green beans, tossed salad, iced tea and raisin pie fresh from the oven. That should do it.

It's flat round piece of dough about 7" to 8" in diameter covered with a mixture of ground meat, tomato, green pepper, spices, etc. and baked.

I buy mine from an Armenian market in the area. It's a very labor intensive product and I don't have the patience to spend all day making it.

My travels for work have got to change routes. Been feeling pretty crabby today and yesterday. It's been messing with our menu.

Yesterday it was these.


Now today it's these.


What can you do?

You just have to stiffen your upper lip and work through the pain...


I have some meat sauce simmering for spaghetti.

I know you've had the steamers, but have you ever had Florida stone crab claws. The truely renewable resource, as the crab gets to grow new claws for us to have next season. I get to crack and Karen gets to make the mustard sauce, recipe from Joe's Stone Crabs on south beach. The best thing about Grimm's Stone Crabs (where I bought them) is they were off loaded and cooked this morning, from their own boats.

It sounds and looks really good. Thanks.
