Monday's din din - October 18 2010

What's cooking tonight?

We're having Goodweed's cookoff-winning white chili. Yummy! I made it saturday for a church cookoff, counting on leftovers. Alas, that's the problem with good chili. It disappears. I guess I should have set some aside beforehand. Oh well, I still have enough ingredients left for a small batch tonight. :)

Not sure what we are having. I have a partial turkey breast I could turn into soup.

I'm not sure yet either. I think I'll look for something new in one of my magazines or cookbooks.

Spaghetti with meat sauce. I made a batch of sauce a week or two ago and froze the leftovers. This is one of the two I froze.

Not sure yet... I have a couple of chicken breasts and a 1/2 lb. of Italien sausage to work with in the meat/protein department. I'll only have about 45 mins to whip something up, whatever it is...

I do not know what we are having for dinner. We were going to have verde enchiladas but I remembered a bit ago that I have class tonight.

I just found what I am going to fix, in the January 2009 issue of Cooking Pleasures. Chicken Thighs with Caramelized Onions. They look very yummy.

A given - the pork chops I didn't do yesterday. The unknown - how and what to have with them!

I was planning to make chicken soup today and have already cut up the poached chicken, but have decided to make us a chicken pan pie. It is nice and cool here today and that would fit in well with the weather and also have almost everything in one dish. I haven't decided on the topping yet, but will get to that soon.

That sounds so good.

Barbara, can I talk you out of that chicken thighs recipe? They are my very most favorite chicken part, and I got a great buy on them at the grocery yesterday.

I just sent it to you. I didn't realize until I was typing it up that it calls for boneless thighs. I will try to adapt it for bone-in thighs, since they will have to cook longer.

Everyone's dinner sounds really good ... we're having chicken pot pie with a biscuit topping and a salad on the side.

Enjoy the day

Andy, we're on the same page. Spaghetti with some red sauce I froze during tomato frenzy days, with some hot Italian sausage and a salad (probably seasoned with one of the Penzey's blends I've been meaning to use more often. Sicilian I think it is).

Tonight I think I'll make some re-fried beans and leave them on the stove for build-your-own-taco night since I'll have to go to class. Too bad I won't have time to make guacamole... ummmmm.

I've got a veal chop thawing at home, thinking about simple s&p seasoning and cooking on the grill. Also thinking about mushroom risotto if the schrooms look good at the grocery store on the way home. Broccoli for the veg.
