What's for Dinner, Saturday Sept. 6

I'm thinking a Tomato Pie and maybe some fried ham.

A lot will depend on what Hanna does to use here in MD and if we lose power at all today.

What about everyone else?

I took out some lamb shanks to defrost last night, then searched Cooking Light for a recipe this morning and found this:

Lamb Shanks with Lime and Cilantro Recipe - Lamb - MyRecipes.com

My neighbor gave me a lemongrass plant a few months ago that I have yet to use yet. Believe it or not, I have everything in stock.

Waiting for Hanna, which seems to be moving slower than expected...still, I love the idea of a rainy evening.

First course is sauteed collard greens topped with roasted beets and grilled honey'd figs.

Chicken breats with lemon butter sauce and gnocchi with mushrooms, parsley and rum soaked pears.

Vanilla mousse for dessert.


Bourbon sidecars for cocktails and wine is yet to be determined.

It is a cool, sunny day so I decided on chicken paprikash with spaetzle and cucumber salad. I hope to bake some ginger cookies in a little while.

another saturday, another double shift. and a storm is coming.

but, to steal one from the postal service, neither rain, nor snow, nor heat, nor gloom of night shall stay me from my appointed round as daddy.

it should be interesting driving out then back into the city. through the remnants of hanna.
darn, i shouldn't have taken those life vest out of my truck to save weight.

a pizza pie!

I am going to try to restrain myself and make a cheese pizza, never been able to stop at cheese only. I have two cheeses ready, both from my goats milk, a mozzarella and a chevre. I have worked on the chevre, adding some fresh minced garlic, oregano, salt and a dash of Penzey's Turkish seasoning.

WHAT do you all do with those little bottles Penzey's adds to your orders? They sent some of the Turkish blend last order and I LOVE it.

Ground Poultry is gross, JMHO.

I decided on Chili. It smells great simmering.
