What's for dinner Tuesday, 2/16/16?

You know how they say not to try out a new recipe on people? Yeah, well, I hate being told what to do

So tonight is the monthly master gardener association dinner meeting and I feel like making something different. I bought a book called "The Silk Road Gourmet," a cookbook with sections on the countries in western and southern Asia, and a bit of history thrown in, and decided to make a carrot and raisin rice pilaf from Afghanistan.

Here it is partway done: onions, carrots and raisins sautéing with a spice mixture. I've added rice and water with turmeric in it and it's simmering away. Hope people like it!

Looks and sounds good to me GG. I'm with you about trying a new recipe on other people...what the heck, they try something new at no charge.

We're having thighs from last night and two beautiful field artichokes.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Leftover chicken nuggets and green bean casserole. I think half my freezers are made up of frozen packages of sliced green beans, every time DH goes shopping he comes home with another package of frozen green beans.

After listening to so many of you praising TJs orange chicken, I broke down and bought a bag. So, orange chicken over rice and a veggie.

A small batch of SOS using hamburg with peas and mushrooms over a baked potato.
