What's for dinner Tuesday Nov 29/11

Well, it appears I'm going to be stuck at home all day while the furnace people fix some last little bits of things. I'd hoped to make a Costco run, but alas, it is not to be.

I'm going to scrounge in my freezer and see what I can find. Dinner will either begin with chicken breast or a pork roast.

I'm also going to raid the freezer to find something to make. Vanilla Bean's chicken stew inspired me, and the weather is yucky so that might be dinner.

I might cook some rope sausage and toss it in the spaghetti sauce I made the other night (with the goetta meatballs), then hollow out a heel of Italian bread and stuff it with the mixture and some cheese. But I've been thinking about that all morning and it might end up being my noontime dinner, which will leave tonight up in the air.

Today I'll grill some kielbasa and bake a sweet potato for dinner. Some veggie will accompany that to make me think I'm eating healthfully.

In the pursuit of trying something a little different (which seems to be a theme this week), we're having a Persian dish called Gormeh Sabzi. Basically, it's seasoned kidney beans, spinach, and lamb served over rice.

One thing I've observed about Persian food in general. It ain't real pretty and, judging from the recipe photo, this dish is no different. Sounds delicious, though.

Nice find, but I wonder why they have you chop off the green parts on the green onions when there is so much other green in the dish.

I wondered that, too. Some recipes for this dish call for "tareh", which, near as I can figure, is the green part of a leek. I think what they are saying here is that you only use the green part of the onion. I will probably just use the whole scallion.

That makes sense, Steve. A little misinterpretation.

I will fry chicken cutlets breaded with ground up Ritz crackers instead of breadcrumbs because I'm out of bread. Then I'll top them with salsa and shredded cheddar and bake them briefly to melt. Served with rice. I'm not a fancy cook.

Raining on and off today. Perfect day for chili and jalapeno cornbread.

Enjoy the day
