What's on the plate, Kate? Tuesday, July 31st

Hard to believe August is already here.

Tonight we're having my own invention: barbeque penne with hickory smoked sausage. It's not as heavy on the barbeque flavor as you might think. Mostly it's a modified Alfredo sauce with chunks of sausage.

I'm thinking jambalaya. I have ham left over and will cook that up along with a pound of smoked sausage to throw in the pot. I love these one pot meals on hot days. I have some baby spinach that I think we'll use to make some salads also if anyone is interested in one.

Hot dogs on the grill with toasted buns, brown mustard, sauerkraut and sweet relish. BBQ baked beans and pasta salad on the side.

It's been so hot I've barely been able to enjoy summer! It just goes too fast. I think I'm going to whip up some home made ravioli tonight. The ricotta vs cottage cheese debate inspired me

'Arry's Empapelado De Mariscos

so,i'm watching thomasina miers eating said dish off a street vendors stall somewhere in mexico on "mexican food made easy".the chef showed her how to make it.as a lover of mexican food i thought "'arry my son you need to 'ave a bash at that".a quick rummage in the freezer revealed i had no octopus,but did have squid,i did have crabs(steady boys,steady!)but wouldn't thaw in time,i did have prawns,scallops & a quite elderly chunk of monkfish on the bone,so far so good.i have never ever cooked with mayonnaise apart from in crab cakes,certainly never mixed with fish stock.never even tasted chipotle chillies let alone cooked with one....it all worked,i'm hooked(fish joke).ate it with a couple of tortilla's baked in the oven,one puffed up,one didn't...b*gger!

Looks mighty good, Harry. So ARE those chipotles? They look different than the chipotle chiles we get over here, which can be purchased either dried, or canned with "adobo" sauce.

If you don't have the real McCoy available, I've found that a good substitute for chipotle is a mix of smoked Spanish paprika and cayenne.

thanks mate.i bought them in tesco as chipotle's.they were dried but still flexible.i agree they look a lot smaller & more wrinkly(don't we all!)than the ones i see on american cooking shows.they were very smokey with an almost licourice like flavour,but no heat....does that sound right?.i don't know 'cos as i said steve,i've never used them before.only know they were delish,saved it til last & ate it!!
but,as we said in a previous post,mexican food....my oh my oh my!!

The ones we get do have some heat. Not a lot, mind you. They're nothing but dried smoked jalapenos, so they're only as hot as that.

The ones in your photo look to me look almost like guajillos, which would explain the lack of heat.

just checked the pack before i go suing tesco for a couple of trillion 's....says "dried chipotle chillies.smoked red jalapenos chillies produce of mexico packed in the uk"probably all went wrong with the uk packing!
if you're sure they are guajillos you can be my expert witness & if we win you can have a couple of million steve!!
whatever they were mate,they were fabulous,really banged in a deep,smokey flavour to the dish!
