It's snowing in N.Y., I am laid up with a twisted knee.Can't extend it all the way and I am the cook of the house.
My wife made me an omlette once...once. One time in 7 years. HELP!
Anyway, I will hobble in the kitchen and experiment.
I always keep frozen jumbo shrimp, peas, chicken broth on hand along with my huge, obsessive collection of spices, I will tell you what I come up with.
Wifey's solution will most likely be in the form of a delivered pizza box.

today's dinner 2-12-08

I have manicotti baking in the oven. The recipe is from America's Test Kitchen. I never tried it before so we'll see how it turns out. A lot of prep work involved even when using no boil lasagna noodles.
I will prepare the garlic bread later.

God that sounds nice and comforting.
I love to mix blue cheese into my mashed potatoes.
Delicious.

Well, pork chops with wild rice stuffing has some how magically turned into beef dip and rosemary potato wedges. I had forgot I had some sirloin roast left over from Sunday and DH brought home some nice mini sub buns from work. Main reason is though...forgot to take the chops out of the freezer.

We were supposed to go out to dinner with friends to Olivia, a Mediterranean restaurant on the Island. But the little one is sick & only wants Mommy. So I sent my DH alone & he is bringing me home a Sabich wrap, egg, potato, eggplant, cabbage, onions, tomato, hummus & tahini in a freshly made pita.....YUM!

Chile Verde Y Papas

Click here for more pictures. Chile Verde Y Papas

I wanted to use some of that fantastic pork this week before I froze it, so last night (after putting it off two nights), I set about making this Chile Verde. I love the smell of the Berkshire fresh pork browning (slightly) in the big pan as I am making it. I'll post a real recipe if anyone is interested... This has very few ingredients compared to some of the other complex chili I make, and this one I made with Chicken Stock (possibly a double chicken stock out of the freezer?).

Here is a pic of the finished bowl and a few more taken just for fun.

Awesome pics..I love them!
It really helps tell the story.
My knee was really messed up last night so my shrimp dish went out the window.
I hobbled into the kitchen, grabbed a couple of beers...called for pizza and sald to be delivered and enjoyed the thought of the shrimp dish I was going to make.:)
