What's For Dinner 03/17/10

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!
Since I ate cabbage with my dinner last night and I don't care for corned beef, tonight I'm having the only thing green I can make with what I have on hand.

Tonight it's Cream of Broccoli soup.

What's everyone else eating tonight?

Chicken. I'm going to pan roast a couple of breast halves. I'll make a quesadilla for myself and SO will have some lo-carb combo with a veggie or two.

Corned beef, except instead of the yada, yada, yada I will serve green salad and panfries....that is if DH gets home in time to help with the potatoes as I am extremely out of breath these days. Otherwise it will be corned beef (already on) and green salad.

Since I like to defy convention I was going to make a turkey tenderloin with home-made pan stuffing and green beans that my DH paid $2.99! a pound for (he had a taste for them...he SO can't pick out beans...). Yeah...heading to the corner now to pick up the corned beef. Tradition is winning out over rebellion. It will be heavy on the carrots (my favorite part) and rye bread (try it soaked on the plate with the juice...heaven!)

Laurie,
how do you do your pan fries? Could you just wash, cut put in the oven with salt, pepper and evoo instead? You'd still have potatoes to go with the corned beef..
I've been thinking of you Please take care my friend..

Thanks CJ,
Pan Fries (at least that is what our family has always called them) are a favourite and I haven't made the for awhile (plus Dad and DH aren't thrilled with the traditional boiled carrots and potatoes with the Irish Boiled Dinner. I slice them paper thin on my mandolin and pat the starch and water out of them. Then I put some evoo in a frying pan and layer the potatoes in rounds in the heated oil with a little S&P between layers. You let them cook brown and then turn sections over and do the other side. They get crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. They are similar to Pommes Anna if you made a huge one and broke it in pieces ,

The tough part for me is the cutting of them as I am so out of breath. But DH called and is on his way home so he will look after the potatoes. He has just been wonderful through all this.
