What's for Dinner Wednesday Sept 7/11?

I've got the whole day to plan and I'm relishing it! I'm doing something with chicken breast and I'm going to go peruse my cookbooks for something yummy I haven't done in a while. I'm open to suggestions too!

Going out to a local fair, formerly known as "Festa dell'Unità", the Italian Communist Party fairs.
The interesting part is that the volunteer organize all sorts of different restaurants: the local Emiliano, with lasagne and tortellini, then restaurants for Toscana, Piemonte, Lazio, the seafood place, the Pizzeria, the latin american roasted beef place and so on.
The most difficult thing is deciding where to go...

I have some cleaning to do in the kitchen. As soon as I'm finished, I'm going to dirty it up again by making butter chicken and basmati rice for dinner tonight. I haven't made it in a while and it tastes so darned good, it's a crime not to make it often.

I made this just a week or two ago, Alix. Super simple and super tasty. The best use for a chicken breast I know
Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta Recipe - Food.com - 39087
I added garlic and mushrooms to mine.

i could send you a bunch of recipes... umm, wait. you sent them to me.

i vote for your brandied chicken.

i'm in never never land today. can't sleep, but too tired to do very much.

i've prepped for a veal stew by chopping red onions, garlic, celery, carrots, bell peppers, fennel, tomatoes, and i'm rehydrating mushrooms. but i'm drawing a blank at whether i should flour the veal before browning, or do them naked and make a roux.

Brown them naked (the veal, not you) then use a flour slurry or a roux to thicken.

Tonight we will be attempting a new recipe - one off of my favorite cooking show with Sunny Anderson...

Tonight even though the weather is dreary and cold we'll be having Sweet & Sour Pork Chops on the Grilled with Potatoes & Onions also cooked on the grill... I'm sure it'll be delicious :)

I took some pork chops out of the freezer that look more like pork steaks. I'm not sure what I am doing with them yet, other than thawing them.
