Anyone eating today 12/7/06?

wow, 10 to 5 and no dinner menu yet!

Tonight I`m doing a Thai Chicken stir-fry, haven`t decided on the carbs (if any) to go with it though.

Getting a bit chilly... nice evening for a hearty dish of polenta.
I made a sugo with crumbled sausage, mushrooms and bell pepper.
We may open a bottle of lambrusco, too... they are perfect companion for this dish

I cooked Japanese Chicken Curry Katsu with homemade curry roux for the first time. It took quite an effort to do it especially when I had to do a fresh batch of garam masala but it turned out very well. We had plain rice with it.

I'm the first N. American to post here. Weird. OK, we are going to have a chicken dish tonight. We've had homemade pizza and dry garlic ribs and pork steaks already this week so chicken it is. I just need to decide what variety to make. I'm going to use up some rice that is leftover in the fridge, so something that will work with that.

I feel like stroganoff today.
But that's not up to me. My mom makes dinner, and I have to eat it.
Maybe it'll be my midnight snack :D

No cooking going on for me. Am in NYC now but later, I'll be in Seattle.
I'll eat something when I get to my hotel, I thinking fish of some kind and maybe a glass of a good red wine to warm the cockles of my heart on a cold night, since DH is in California

I'm making pizza with roasted peppers and spinach.

Urmaniac, I wish I'd be eating at your home, though--that sounds wonderful!

Alix, if you want something easy, how about Speedy Mexican Chicken? I always serve it with rice of some sort.

Just place skinless boneless chicken breasts in a baking dish and top with an equal mixture of salsa and sour cream (I usually use 1 cup of each for 4 breasts). Top with cheese and bake uncovered until done, usually about 30-45 minutes if cooked at 350F.

PA, I love you. I suspect you eat nearly as much chicken as we do. We are going to have to trade recipes someday. Til then, thanks for the tip!

Love you too, Alix! Yes, if we ate any more chickens we'd grow feathers! I think the original recipe (which has been long gone and modified) called for topping with black olives if you like them.

I do, but no one else in the house much cares for them. I believe Ken describes them as tasting "like weatherstripping". LOL!!

I'm making eggplant parmesan for myself, and a chicken curry for my husband.

DH is working late and picking up drive thru for dinner then going back to the office to eat it. So, no cooking for me. My little on is having cereal and I'm going to open a box of Whitman's Samplers we were saving for Christmas. Oh well, it's an evening of watching Spongebob on tv and eating assorted chocolates on the couch.

I kinda like Spongebob, Flourgirl.

I'm making a meatloaf...been craving one for quite a while. If I have enough get up and go, I may make some mac & cheese to go with.

A friend gave me 10lbs of dried pinto beans the other day, so I'm cooking pintos with onion, garlic, celery, bell pepper, diced bacon, ham hock, mushrooms, thyme, cumin, black pepper, cayenne pepper sauce and sugar. When its finished I'll serve it with venison chile that my sis's boyfriend made.

I've been home for two days with bronchitis and am completely bored out of my mind!!! Even though the doctor said stay home till Monday, there's no way I can sit around here another day!...that, plus I have a party for 200 tomorrow afternoon.

So, I cooked tonight!

I made brisket the way my mother in law made it. Cooked the potatoes in the broth, added a side of homemade applesauce and big chunks of french bread for dipping.

I gotta get back to work.

I just ate a pop tart
