What's on your plate Sunday, 9/20/15?

We're finally having our pizza and trying out Craig's new toy on the Weber. Forgot to make up the no-knead dough AGAIN, so started my usual dough a little bit ago. Also started a biga for some Genoa-style focaccia to be cooked after the pizzas are done. Margherita, pepperoni and a TBD pies today.

It is going to be too hot to cook again today, but have two Ready-Pac salads in the fridge and I bought 3 containers of Organic Girl salad greens yesterday; baby greens, 50/50 baby greens and baby spinach and Super Greens consisting of baby red chard, baby tatsoi, baby spinach, baby green swiss chard, and baby arugula. I will make myself a nice big salad, and then order a pizza from Ameci Pizza & Pasta.

I cleaned out the freezer a couple days ago, and discovered some rotisserie chicken carcasses along with a couple bags of cut up vegetables. Made stock yesterday. Freezing some, the rest I'm using for chicken soup tonight. Threw in some leftover roasted carrots and chopped onion, will add some Mexican noodles.

Mexican noodles? I didn't know there was such a thing. Do tell...

I'm making the grilled bratwurst with sauerkraut-mustard-beer and potato salad menu I've made a few times this summer. So good.

GG, we have a large Hispanic population here, and our grocery stores are well-stocked with Mexican ingredients. The brand I use is Moderna. They call their pasta "Fideo", it comes in various shapes, like tiny stars, little noodles, and what I'm using, fideo nests. It's all made in Mexico from semolina. It cooks up really quick in soup!

This'll be a no-fuss-no-muss dinner tonight.
I found some meatballs that I made quite some time back,

those will get tossed into the last of our Wedding Favor gift,
lovely Tomato Sauce that the Bride's family made.
I just love food as gifts.

Surpriingly, SO requested tuna noodle casserole. I said OK, and she proceeded to tell me how to make it. I replied that she could make dinner tonight. I'll try not to sit there and critique.

I use those. I love the aisles in the stores that have all the ethnic products. Safeway just started carrying Goya stuffed green olives. They are really great tasting . If it's 'new' I'll try it!

+1 FF!
Our "Hispanic Aisle" has loads of spices and herbs, uber cheap.
I buy alot of my basic stuff, like Thyme, Rosemary, etc. for less than a dollar.
They are packed in cellophane bags, I take them home and stash them in glass spice jars my Mom gave me one year for christmas. I asked her just a dozen, she sent me a case!
But ya know this saves use a lot of money, rather than paying $4+ for the same amount of cinnamon.
