What's for dinner Monday, 1-20-2020

We'll be having spinach salads and tuna melt sandwiches. What's going down onto your kitchen table?

Tonight’s dinner will be turkey noodle soup for SO and tomato soup and a tuna sandwich for me.

Slow cooker wine-braised lamb shanks with brown rice and sauteed spinach.

I was disappointed with the braising sauce. (I was following a "classic" recipe).
It used much more wine than broth, and it also piled on the crushed tomatoes. I should have followed my instinct to switch the proportions of wine and broth, and cut WAY back on the tomatoes. I think the recipe author, who offered the slow cooker version as a variant, didn't make enough allowance for the difference in technique.

Still it's made! And it only requires reheating. And I'll get 3 meals out of it one way or another!

Wonderful sounding dinners, everyone. Stuffed bell pepper here this afternoon - garlicky toasted sourdough bread for a side.

I made an unusual sambar tonight, unusual because I added some quinoa to it, to thicken it some, and add some nutrition, but also because I used a vegetable almost never seen in Indian cooking: Brussels sprouts. I had some that I had to do something with. So I cleaned them up, sliced them in half, and microwaved them for 3 min, then chilled them quickly in running water. I substituted this in a sambar that originally had cauliflower, but instead of cooking them for too long, as well as cooking more when reheating (almost nothing worse than overcooked Brussels sprouts!), I simply cooked the sambar, and ladled some on a serving of the blanched Brussels sprouts in a bowl, and let it sit a couple of minutes, before eating. Turned out great! And I'll repeat this by stirring some of the Brussels sprouts into reheated leftovers, and no overcooking.

We ran out of spoons, so frozen tortellini with Classico roasted garlic and onion pasta sauce. It was tasty.

In between grinding 12# of pork shoulder and 12# of beef knuckle, I managed to make beef stew.
