What's for dinner? Wednesday, 4-8-2015

It's turn-on-the-oven weather today, so I'll be baking a ham. I'll roast beets in another pan, and maybe another pan of carrots. They are so good roasted, and I seem to have a plethora of them in the 'fridge. Lightly steamed asparagus, too, which we'll put the last of the remoulade on just to use it up. Still considering salad, since it's so damp cold today.

What will you be tickling your tummy with tonight?

We'll be having some chicken breasts either pan roasted or griddled, leftover rice pilaf and steamed carrots.

It's good fishing weather. I think I will put a can of spiffed up baked beans in the oven and bury a couple hot dogs and go fishing at dinner time. No buns, I think a pan of corn bread is just the ticket to round out dinner.

We'll be having hot dogs wrapped in pita bread. I'm making some vegi stock now, so I will probably use some of it to make a soup out of the leftovers from Mr. Falafel.

I made a 5-cheese vegetarian thick-crust pizza. Crust, homemade sauce, grated 4 of the cheese, a layer of leftover mashed potatoes with cheese, topped with sundried tomatoes, smoked red peppers, baby greens, roasted onion, roasted garlic, roasted leeks, some chili garlic sauce, more baby greens, homemade moz., drizzle of harissa EVOO and some fresh oregano. I oiled a pizza pan, cooked it at 400 for 20 minutes, last 5 minutes at 450.

Stir fry with chicken tenderloin, fresh green beans, fresh mini sweet peppers, and whatever else we can rout out of the pantry.

Debating on steamed rice or some mei fun noodles... hmmm Never cooked mei fun noodles before, but I'm willing to try it.

I just hope I make enough for leftovers this time. Randy tends to eat a lot when I do stir fry.

Since there was plenty of leftover turkey from our roast turkey we had for Easter dinner, I made a deluxe turkey potpie. It's filled with all sorts of veggies, lots of rich sauce made from the gravy and broth, and a top made of lard pastry. We'll further our carbs by having some of salt and pepper's wonderful Cast Iron Rolls, iced tea and vanilla fudge for dessert.

I've been simmering chicken stock all day with plans for chicken & dumplings later tonight. Yes, I "sometimes" make my own stock.

The meaty previously frozen chicken carcass is in with the usual suspects (onion,carrots,celery) but also with a half head of cabbage and a cup of white wine with the water. I never thought of wine before .40 mentioned it in his C&D the other day, and the cabbage is because it needed using. The flavor is developing beautifully, and naturally I'll strain out the solids later for the rest of dish. I'll sure remember the cabbage and wine for stock next time!! What flavor!

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