What's for dinner? Friday, 10-23-15

Another beautiful day here today, so I'm thinking I'll grill some chicken thighs this afternoon. I just made a small potato salad so that will be one side, and might throw some asparagus on the grill as well.

What's everyone having today?

Something that once had a parent

Something from the dirt

Seriously though it's a toss up for burgers and fries or steak, baked potatoes,salad.

We refer to it as chicken mole around our house, but its not really chicken mole. Take a jar of mole sauce (there are a couple of different brands, depending upon the supermarket) and dilute it with a couple jars of water. Cook a couple of boneless chicken breasts in a slow cooker for 6 8 hours in the mole sauce. Remove the chicken from the slow cooker, shred it, and return it to the slow cooker, mixing with the sauce. It comes out like pulled pork in a somewhat runny mole sauce. I like it over egg noodles, my sister in law serves it over baked potatoes.

We have a lot of leftover chicken, so I'll just be roasting some some asparagus the SC found on sale at Von's for $1.99lb. I may also roast some cauliflower, although I've never done that. I don't really love cauliflower, but it sounds kinda good with some cheese dip.

That sounds like something lots of people would really like TS. However Mole is about the only Mexican cooking that's just bad on my normally cast iron stomach. I'm glad your family enjoys it!

Oven baked beef stew ( with beer). Will reheat a couple slices cornbread in the oven as well.

I tried a recipe for Czech soup dumplings (into a improvised lentil soup base). They are basically egg and flour mix forming a thickish batter. The recipe called for them to be dropped in the soup by teaspoons. This produced a thick, not very pleasant gluish globule. (I cooked them for the required time; they float to the surface and expand).

Has potential though. I think I will next try just quickly letting long, thin strands fall in the drip from a fork; I think this might produce a noodles effect and be more edible.

I am meeting Kay today and then we are heading to Costco so it will probably be their hotdogs there, or the other half of the pizza we got last time we were there and put in the freezer. I am kinda hoping for the hot dogs!
