What a nice and tasty surprise! Gotta love daughters - sounds like you have some keepers there, Andy.

Actually, it was pretty tasty. I think that next time I'll try it with b/s thighs. I used currants, because that's what I have at the moment. Curry with the other flavors was a good combination.

See, "retro" recipes can be a good thing, right? I'm already running..

Kayelle, doesn't bother me one bit that you leave your tacos to fend for themselves. Himself likes sides, I serve sides. Today, though, they were way more starch than I'm used to, but broccoli doesn't go with tacos.

That's what I do when I buy a full, vac-sealed pork loin. That way I can open the package from the middle-ish when I start portioning it up for the freezer.

I had to make some guacamole today, for Nat'l corn chip day, but that was lunch, and more of a snack.

For dinner, I had some chicken, that I marinated like I do for Thai grilled chicken, but I roasted it, instead. And I made a simple sweet and sour dip sauce - nam jeem gratiem - for the chicken. And I made some fried oats! I had some cooked whole oats in the fridge, and I just used my basic Thai fried rice recipe, and added some mushrooms and chopped up bok choy leaves, along with some basils, at the end. I can still smell that in my computer room at this time, and I really am fighting the urge to go down for a midnight snack! lol

CG, the beauty of the taco is that it is the perfect food to eat when you don't have utensils -- or even a table and a plate.

Sure, cd, but we have forks, plates, and tables in our house. Sides are no problema.

Where's the fun in that?

Make friends with someone who has a pickup truck, and eat tacos on the tailgate.

I cooked this last night, but we’ll be having it Wednesday night. An excellent spatchcocked chicken roasted over potatoes, mushrooms and onions. I think the skin looks a little like the hen has acne; I think that’s because I used ghee instead of butter under the skin. It’s nice and crunchy though, for those of you who like crunchy chicken skin!

You mean you have a shelf full of Junior League cookbooks from the Southeast and can't decide which recipe to use? I used this one from Southern Living, which I guessed was reasonably close to the traditional dish. I cut it back to 4 thighs for the two of us.

It's a lot older than the '50s. It's sort of a fusion dish - southern and Indian - associated with Charleston, SC. The theory is that it was invented in the 19th century and appeared in Junior League cookbooks in the' 50s.

That's what I understand too GG.

Country Captain Chicken was originally published in the United States in the pages of Miss Leslie’s New Cookery Book published in Philadelphia in 1857. The recipe has been around for a very long time.

I am not a fan of curry and I'm not sure why I even tried this dish, but I'm glad I did. The curry flavor can (and should be) quite subtle, and just a background flavor instead of the star of the show. I used only 2 tsp. of curry powder. We thought the combo of flavors both interesting and delicious.

She does. Good and bad. Though there's a lot more good in her.
