Is anyone cooking Sat 2/25?

I'm clueless on what to make with my chicken again - saving Chinese dumplings and stir fry for tomorrow. What's everyone cooking tonight?

Red Beans and Rice for me... It is rainy and cool so that should be fine along with the cornbread.

Later

We've got a seafood gumbo cookin' on the stove. It will have lots of gulf shrimp, oysters, scallops, crab meat, okra, crab legs and even a whole crab just to make it beautiful. It smells yummy - I can't wait!

Chicken cordon bleu, wild rice done in chicken broth, some veggie and a salad. If I can scrounge up some wine I will toss some in with the rice and have a glass too! Dessert will be some ice cream cuz I was too lazy to bake today.

Licia, I think tenderstem would be just broccoli florets, no stems. Fine beans would be french cut green beans I think and crushed potatoes would be mashed potatoes. Is that right Ishbel?

tenderstem broccoli is the stuff with little heads and longer, tender stems - I believe it was a variety grown via purple sprouting broccoli. Fine beans are the very thin, small, french beans. Crushed potatoes - just 'new' potatoes (at present they are from Egypt and Israel) which I do not peel, just scrub... boil until just tender - and then just 'crush' with a fork and add butter and salt/pepper - like first stage 'mashed' potatoes.

We had taco salad and I made an apple dessert from about 3 different recipes. I used about 5 cups of apples and mixed sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg with them. I then took a package of cake mix and mixed 1 stick of melted butter, 1/2 cup chopped nuts and 1/2 cup shredded coconut til I could press about half of the mixture in a baking dish. I then added the apples, then spread the rest of the cake mixture over and baked for about 45 minutes. It is delicious, even without ice cream.

Either spaghetti with meatballs and sauce or meatball sandwiches. I have not made up my mind yet. I will be serving a tossed green salad on the side of whichever I decide to have.

The little one was wanting chicken selects from McD's (I am starting to maybe believe that hype that fast food is addictive), so I talked her into letting mommy make fried chicken, mashed potatoes/ gravy, and salad. And I snagged some shrimp cocktail to snack on later.

It's 20F, but kids insisted on burgers on the grill and tator tots.

Saturday night (last night for me) was smoked cod fish cakes (made with flaked smoked cod, mashed potatoes and parsley) on a bed of garlic spinach and slices boiled carrot with a anchovy and lemon juice/zest vinaigrette (lots of anchovy!).

Was delicious, I was particularly impressed by the vinaigrette I was not sure how it would turn out but I enjoyed that the most! Really enhanced the flavour of the fish cakes.
