What's on your plate 9/13/10?

I will probably make this tonight.



This one was good so I am giving the pork chop one a try.




I am hoping to find the Spanish Skillet one soon because it sounds good but the store I went to either doesn't carry it or was sold out.

Any plans at your house?

A quick check of my freezer yielded leftover squash with shrimp and some kielbasa to "beef" it up with.

I'll probably start lima beans with the last pork roast bone. It will be good for tomorrow and will make my apartment smell good all day.

One of my best friends went to Spain recently and brought me a beautiful bottle os Spanish white wine. He's coming over for dinner this evening, so I thought I'd plan the menu around that bottle of wine.

Going to make a stew-ish dish of fresh corn cut off the cod, cherry tomatoes and bacon, seasoned with Spanish sweet paprika and basil. Sauteing some sea scallops to go with. Probably cook up some Broccoli rabe, and a green salad with lemony vinaigrette.

Looks interesting, Ms. M! Can't wait to see your pictures.

We are probably having the pasta I didn't feel up to making yesterday. Making pasta around here is getting to be like a made-to-order restaurant!
I think the base will be linguine with a marinara sauce I am going to start now, with the following alterations

DH - Gluten free noodles, prawns and chorizo, no cheese
Dad - regular noodles all cut up into small pieces, some frozen mixed vegetables, meatballs (which I made and froze) and Parmesan
Me - regular noodles (whole), mushrooms, no meat and both Parmesan and Mozzarella

I will make a green salad for DH and I, and am adding the veggies for Dad.

Lucky Friend! Sounds divine, Chef June!

Apricot glazed baked chicken breasts, roasted smoky corn, berry tart. It's a dry run for my portion of an October movable feast.

Sounds wonderful! Please tell me how you make your apricot glaze and how/when to apply it.

I keep hearing about using preserves to make glazes and apricot is one of my favorite flavors. I'll be shopping on Thursday, so I can pick up what I need.

I rarely use chicken breast except for sandwiches or sliced with gravy, but I'm sure it will be just as good on chicken thighs.

GF said she's making Tilapia and jalopeno corn bread tonight. Don't know what the sides are yet. But what the heck, fish and corn bread? I don't think I need any sides LOL!
