What's for Dinner, Monday Dec. 29th....
 
I'm still contemplating my menu.... so tell me yours!

Fisher's Mom 12-29-2008 11:20 AM

I usually contemplate mine, too, Sattie, until lots of people post what they're having and I get some inspiration! Like yesterday - someone mentioned having cornbread and so I made Navy beans with left-over ham and cornbread. It was so good. I can't wait to figure out what I'll be having tonight!

Jeekinz 12-29-2008 11:27 AM

I'm not sure what the DW is making, but it will include shrimp, lobster tails and two kinds of fish.

(I know because I defrosted them-lol)

good morning, girl!

I also like to see what everyone's cooking before I decide - but I made up my mind last night that I'm making JimC's Linguini with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Spinach, and Garlic (recipe posted in yesterday's "what's for dinner" thread).

DH is out of town and I'm going to the grocery store to buy some ingredients and try a couple new dishes! (I'm going to make a quiche too!)

pdswife 12-29-2008 12:17 PM

We're getting together with the kiddos tonight...if they come here I'll make a ham.
If we go there... I'm letting them do dinner. I'm voting for their place! I'm ready for someone to cook for me!!

LPBeier 12-29-2008 12:19 PM

I'm trying to figure out how to cook for DH's newly diagnosed ulcer. Everything he asks for has either too much acid or too much spice.

I will be surfing ulcer diets before I decide.

JohnL 12-29-2008 12:21 PM

Dear GF requested dinner at a restraunt tonight, so no cooking for me.

Luvs2Cook 12-29-2008 12:21 PM

Fettuccine Alfredo, Caesar Salad

pdswife 12-29-2008 12:21 PM

My goodness Laurie..it's getting harder and harder to cook in your house!

Bingo! This is what I'm having for dinner! Thanks, Luvs.

Luvs2Cook 12-29-2008 12:24 PM

Enjoy!

Isn't it a good thing I am trained in special diets? :wink:

Actually, when the test results come back we may find that he doesn't have the other problems and it may all be better once we get the ulcer sorted out.

marigeorge 12-29-2008 12:31 PM

Last night we had egg rolls, char siu and fried rice.....tonight I will use the little bit of leftover pork to make Singapore rice noodles.

Fearless Kitchen 12-29-2008 12:43 PM

I'm on my own for tonight, so I'm having gumbo and rice - both leftovers.

SierraCook 12-29-2008 01:02 PM

I have been trying to eat up items from the freezer. I have a bad habit of buying meats at the grocery store when I have plenty in the freezer.
This morning I pulled out some tri-tip strips and marinated half of them in a spicy miso teriyaki sauce which I think I will serve with broccoli stir fry and white rice. The other half of the tri-tip I am marinating in Baja chipotle sauce to use for dinner later in the week.

pdswife 12-29-2008 01:31 PM

Ok... the kids are coming here! And we are having pizza. Paul made extra dough and I made extra sauce the other day so it'll be an easy dinner. I'm even going to make them make their own pizzas. Mean mommy!

VeraBlue 12-29-2008 02:31 PM

Actually, I have a big deal going on tonight...
My childhood friend and his boyfriend are joining my daughter and I for an after holiday meal. Another friend of mine, my photographer from my past, ahem...life....is also joining us.

We're having stuffed mushrooms (currants, brie and crab) with cocktails in the parlour.

First course is endive with port poached pears, saga bleu and candied pecans with an orange balsamic glaze.

Dinner is pork tenderloin marsala with butternut squash risotto and broccoli with lemon aoili.

I'm making a caranberry walnut braided bread.

Dessert is slices of linzer torte with eggnog creme brulee.

I have a pinot noir from the russian river valley for dinner.

babetoo 12-29-2008 02:40 PM

i am looking forward to a marie callander chicken pot pie. more than a little tired of left over ham. will add a nice salad. hope to make pumpkin muffins this afternoon for dessert

As always, I'm wishing I was eating at Vera's tonight.:sad: (For the company as well as the food!)

Katie H 12-29-2008 02:57 PM

I have about a half pound of yellow split peas, so I may make some soup. Not too inspired today. Really feel like taking a nap.

Changed my mind. I'm quick soaking some pinto beans right now. Chopped up a mess of onions and garlic and took some smoked ham hocks out of the freezer. Pinto bean soup instead.

Homemade potato rolls are on their last rise and will have them with the soup. Carbs, carbs and more carbs.

deelady 12-29-2008 03:08 PM

Salmon again with roasted broccoli and garlic cheese biscuits

Myop 12-29-2008 03:24 PM

how long do mash potatoes and green beans last in the refrig after cooking?

PanchoHambre 12-29-2008 03:29 PM

Last night I needed comfort food big time... I was terribly hung over all day.

I roasted a chicken made stuffing with odds and ends (brown rice, pork, bacon, egg) and made whipped potatoes.... Stayed easy on the flavorings.. just oil, S&P and a sprinkle of HDP on the bird.

Now I am feeling rejuvenated and have a while bunch of chicken and stock not sure what I am going to make with it though.

I would not push them past a week. :wink: 3 to 4 days is usually the limit with me.

Yea... I with you and Fisher... I can't think of anything sometimes, then a quick glance at this thread, I got all the inspiration I need!!!

anni 12-29-2008 03:40 PM

I am making a pot of chicken noodle soup for my husband. He has a cold. Of course, it is The Worst Cold any human has ever suffered...according to him. :wacko:

Luvs2Cook 12-29-2008 03:43 PM

Myop,
I just used leftover mashed potatoes that were in the fridge for about 5 days.
they were fine, although they were all the way in the back of the fridge where it is the coldest.

homecook 12-29-2008 03:45 PM

I'm hoping to go to a local Italian place for mussels. I'm tired of cooking. I have to talk dh into it though. Ds' girlfriend gave us a gc for Christmas. Ds and gf are going to the TSO concert that we got them tickets for Christmas.

JustMeToo 12-29-2008 04:05 PM

BBQ pulled pork, mashed potatoes, veggie and applesauce.

pdswife 12-29-2008 04:47 PM

Change of plans...again...lol...

No way that the pizza dough was going to thaw in time to rise for pizza tonight... sigh.

So I'm making scalloped ham and potatoes and Greek tomatoes and green beans.
I guess that will be a little better anyway since this really is our "Christmas" dinner.

Chaplain Kent 12-29-2008 05:43 PM

This is the middle day between the holidays. Christmas parties are done and soon News Years celebrations will be starting. I am dinnered out so I need something to start recharging before the next round. Tonight will be vegetarian, a simple stir fry with lots of veggies and maybe some mushrooms, mixed with a little special sweet soy sauce and served over rice.

Toots 12-29-2008 05:45 PM

We were supposed to go out with friends but that got nixed so now I'm not sure what I'll make, everything is frozen. I'm leaning towards arroz con pollo because I can get it going in the oven while I defrost the chicken breasts.

I have to say a glass of wine and dinner out sounds wonderful!

scoobagirl 12-29-2008 06:20 PM

Well after assessing what was left in the veggie crisper and going to the store, I made the quiche.

I used the base recipe that was posted a couple days ago in the "eggs" section of this board. Put my pie crust in a 10" quiche dish (a little shallower than a 9" pie plate) I had a jalapeno, half a red bell pepper, garlic and some green onion which I sauteed lightly in EVOO just till soft. Drained that, and put my cubes of ham and the drained sauteed veggies onto the crust, then sliced super thin a zucchini and spread those on the ham and peppers. Then I covered it all with about two handfuls of shredded jack/colby cheeses. Beat 5 eggs and a cup of milk, salt & pepper and poured that into the dish all over the cheese, ham, and veggies. Baked at 350 for 60 minutes (wasn't done in the middle at 50 minutes) and I could have left it in the oven for another 10 minutes as it was still a bit runny. Let it set to cool for an hour - it was still pretty warm and slightly "loose" in the middle - but it stayed together pretty well when I sliced it. I ate one piece with some sour cream on the side, but it wasn't fiery spicy.

After cross referencing some other quiche recipes, I think I could have used 3 or 4 eggs OR a little less milk (maybe 3/4 c. instead of 1 c.) and it would have set up better. Not that its not delish - it IS yummy - but I wish it was a little firmer.

By the way, the house smelled fantastic while this was baking!!!

So the Linguine dish will be for tomorrow. Yummo!

love2"Q" 12-29-2008 07:13 PM

I made the chicken fried rice I didn't get to last night, along with some shrimp egg rolls.

sattie 12-29-2008 09:55 PM

Wow Marigene!!! Scoobagirl... I lost my inspiration and ended up with leftovers. Leftover lasgana and the last dab of ceasar salad.

I'm gonna get me some stuff to make a quiche too!!

A 1/2 wedge of romaine with some cucumbers, tomatoes, and peppers, homemade bleu cheese, a big fat ribeye, steamed new potatoes with butter/sour cream/chives, and apple pie for dessert. All accompanied by a bottle of 1999 Magnificat, and boy was it good! Sometimes we keep wine too long and this time, it was just the right amount of time!!! I'm in heaven...well, maybe not...there's still dirty dishes around! :sad:

We had pan fried sirloins, potato bakers, green salad, and pesto flat bread...
