Don't know what dinner will be yet, but I have to prep my Ollieburgers for tomorrow. They have to marinate at least 12 hours.

I brought leftover lentil-chard-tomato soup to the farm. There are peas, Chard, and radishes to pick in the garden, pasta in the cupboard, and herbs in the herb garden. Not sure what else I'll forage...I'm going to check for new potatoes. It will be a meatless meal.

There used to be a resturant chain called Lums and they brough on Ollie Gleichenhaus for his burger recipe from Ollie's Trolly.

OllieBurger

I have found that they are much better if marinaded for at least 12 hours or over night.

Yum. I like a burger with a history behind it. A good treat to celebrate the 4th July.

I am bringing a blueberry peach strudel ( PPO's recipe) I made last night over for dinner w/ DxW. I don't know what else we are having. The strudel turned out excellent.

That looks delectable Rocky!!

We had spinach salad and pork chops with the Portland Ketchup we got in the mail today.

This is the review I just posted about the product on Amazon..

"After visiting Portland recently we saw Portland Ketchup on the tables around town and tried it on our burgers. When we got back to California, we HAD to order it online to have it at home. This is really a remarkable flavor, so far superior to any ketchup on the market, it's really the "gourmet" of any ketchup you've ever tasted. The balance of flavor is remarkable. Well done!"
Natural Ketchup: Portland Ketchup Company: Amazon.com: Grocery & Gourmet Food

We highly recommend it, even from Steve who doesn't like ketchup.

Got the peppers stuffed tonight. Had leftover rice so I made kinda Spanish rice, sauteing the pepper trimmings and an onion. Added in the last of the tomato puree from the can. Ended up opening a can of Niblets corn for the veggie. AND I finally got to eat my salad I had made yesterday, then didn't eat because dinner was done. Then I was too full for salad. Now I'm just full.

I miss Lums. I've tried steaming our dogs in beer but it just isn't the same. Do you have the recipe for them? I tried both links in the recipe that you posted but they're both dead-ends.

Kylie,

I'm curious because you seem to have butter chicken quite a lot. Is it something you and your family love or is it just something simple and easy to prepare, makes a whole lot at once and you have leftovers or a combination of any of the above? If one of the reasons is that you and your family absolutely love it, can you share the recipe or do you already have it posted here somewhere? I Googled butter chicken and it seems it's one of those dishes that everyone has their own recipe and they can vary quite a bit in spicing.

As for last night's dinner, we had vegetarian Mexican spaghetti with a sauce made of roasted/peeled poblano chiles, toasted ground blanched almonds, garlic, fresh baby spinach, oregano, crema and heavy cream.

Hi Medtran

Yes, Butter Chicken is something that we love...we have eaten so many different varieties at Indian restaurants and pubs etc and we have cooked a variety of recipes ourselves at home, some good, some not so good and some were great!

You are right, there are so many different recipes for butter chicken and they all taste so different too

There are a 3 that we really love and only one we needed to tweak a bit to get it to our liking

Here are the 3 recipes

Butter Chicken 1

Butter Chicken 2

Butter Chicken 3

I hope you enjoy them, they all taste wonderful

Butter Chicken 1///////
Kylie, this one looks good to me! I picked up a jar of Garam Masala when Himself took me to Penzeys for my birthday last week. Think I'll give this one a try when the weather cools down. Spicy foods + hot weather make me feel hotter.
