What's on your menu Wednesday, March 28th?

It is a cold, rainy day. So I've pulled wild rice out of the freezer (I always cook a big enough batch to freeze some so it is ready on the fly). I'm planning a cream of wild rice and chicken soup. I'll grill the chicken breast and add mushrooms, leek, corn, and don't know what else. What are you making?

I have a piece of beef I am going to stew up. I think I will drop in to the LCBO and grab a nice bottle of dark beer and do up some Carbonade Flamande and serve it with boiled potatoes and carrots.

I'm probably going to have leftover taco meat lasagna.

I've got so much food on hand I haven't even figured out what to make with it all.

I braised the pork shoulder blade yesterday, 8.87#. I stripped the meat off the blade and put it all in a gallon baggie so I'll be breaking it down today into meal size portions and freezing. It literally fell apart when I tried to get it out of the pan - super tender.

I got 3 cups of braising liquid, so I'll probably start a pot of beans with that, plus the stock I made from the turkey necks.

I'll also be updating my freezer inventory today, so I can see what I've got, and can do some planning of things to make.

I'll be taking it easy today after all the hands and knees scrubbing, stripping wax. I got much of it done, but will have to take a break until my back stops yelling at me.

Just Plain Bill,

Firstly, nice to see that you are having Pasta al Genovese ...

I had commented on your post for a Cream Clam Chowder however, have not heard from you --- I prefer MANHATTAN CLAM CHOWDER and u have a recipe !!!

Could you provide me with the recipe at your convenience ?

Thanks so much.

Give Luca´s Spaghetti alla Puttanesca di Luca a try !!! I have made, however, his recipe is same however, I had forgotten the sauce part, and his is better than a marinara !!!

Regards, Margi.

A shipment of fresh Artichokes from California has arrived at the co-op, so we'll have Artichokes along with our Steak Fondue tonight.

Funny, all this talk of puttanesca is making me hungry for it. May have that tomorrow. Or maybe some penne all'arrabbiata...

There must be something wrong with me, I only eat a pasta-based dish about once every 2-3 months. But, I have saved this one for when I have too many tomatoes in the garden because it does sound delish!
