We had Spanish rice last night, but not with clams!

Tonight we're having chicken dinner pies that SO made. They're a favorite.

We make about 3 dozen clams of which I eat about 24. Then for desert (if I'm still hungry) I have some of the Spanish rice. I actually like the rice better when it's reheated the next day in a frying pan with some olive oil.

We have enough left over for another meal. I'll have to give some thought to what should go with it.

It's turkey day in our "rotation diet"

Lunch is smoked turkey and swiss sandwiches on squirrely flax bread with raw veggies.

Dinner is another new recipe. Turkey meatballs and pasta (radiatore I think) with a spinach ricotta sauce. I will try to make some rosemary garlic bread with the squirrely and see how it turns out.

Kathleen bought a cookable tagine:



I seasoned it yesterday and will be making a tagine of lamb with preserved lemons and olives.

This should be an interesting experience.

The best I can describe (since I haven't used it yet) is it is a stove top crock pot...

You are supposed to use low heat for cooking and it takes a while.

I will likely start a thread with pictures at some point.

Can't wait for the show.

I will be having Rigatoni al Sausage Carbonara, made with some of the hot fennel sausage I made a while ago. Been craving this for some time.
