Moussaka (which I haven't made in years). Green salad on the side.

LOL, I overcooked mine the first time. I hope my advice didn't cause you to undercook yours.

Just curious, what didn't you like about it?

I put together an "on the fly" chicken casserole that turned out to be tasty, and a little different.

The "no details" version was a box of prepared seasoned brown/wild rice, chicken breast chunks, celery/mushrooms/onion/pimentos/slivered almonds. Sauce was white wine mixed with Golden Mushroom Soup, and the casserole was topped with buttered crushed Ritz crackers baked till a golden brown. SC's spinach salads were just right with the meal.

The combination of flavors just didn't do it for me. Considering I enjoy all the ingredients in other recipes, that's odd but I just didn't care for it.

The restaurant is run by several generations of one family and they are getting to know us as we are them. We got one of the last generation, who was ready with the numbers 36 (for me) and 9 Large for TB but we both fooled her. I asked if it was possible to get a small chicken Pho as I haven't been feeling well and she said she would check. TB gave her his order and she was off to talk to "Gramma". I could see them pointing at me. I had already given the tempura I always order as a back-up so we weren't expecting her to come back either way.

When the food came, I had a large bowl of chicken soup like you have never tasted before. It had ginger, lemongrass, and lemon in it and was the best soup (of any kind) I have ever had.

Apparently I am on Gramma's good list as she made it herself!

We had a lovely chicken stew, with carrots, celeriac ( (Apium graveolens var. rapaceum) and broccoli steams and served with broccoli florets and potatoes.

It was very yummy and we all loved it so it will be back on the menu as soon as broccoli is cheap again.

AKA celery root in the US.

Also, broccoli stems have good flavor, and I find that they are better cooked in something, as you did. The florets are best, IMO, just barely cooked.

Nice sounding meal.

caseydog: well since there is a ton of names even in the USA , I am pondering just to go for latin.
Celeriac = celery root = celery knob = turnip-rooted celery = knob celery = Germany celery = soup celery = turnip celery = céleri-rave
