What's for Dinner? Tuesday 3/25

I finished doing taxes this morning and mailed them to my accountant. The price of gas being what it is doesn't merit a 2-hour round trip.

I'm rewarding myself with

Shrimp Etouffee
Fresh Asparagus, cooked a shade past al dente and lightly seasoned.
Warm French Bread, simply coated with plain ole butter

And a handful of strawberries for dessert.

What are you having?

Made a throw together soup for dinner tonight - Chicken and Mushroom dumplings in vegetable stock with baby pak choy, shiitake and Swiss brown mushrooms. Easy peasy, filling and tasty. Chicken stock would have been better though. Less heavy.

I made a big pot of homemade chili and I'll grill some cheese sandwiches to go with it.

I wish everyone a great day!

I'm gonna try a new recipe... Creamy Chicken Alfredo (the alfredo sauce is made from scratch). I can't decide what to make with it. Maybe noodles and broccoli.

Lemon and Garlic marinated chicken, batter dipped and fried. Sort of an "I was born in california, but my whole family is southern, country boy from Napa Valley Gone Wild in the Kitchen" Thing. Probably toss in some basic veg and call it even.

No prob, I love requests, and he'll eat ANYTHING Ol' Blue creates so far!

Pancakes. Boring I know, but I'm currently in the "delivery danger zone". I pretty much can't do anything for three weeks when they are sure the baby is well-developed and ready to come without spending time in the NICU.

Have some leftover boiled potatoes, so I'll oven fry some bacon, fry up some onion with the cut up potatoes, and add about 5 beaten eggs for a Spanish tortilla. (Kind of like a quiche without the crust, only cooked up in a frying pan.) Hmm. I do have some frozen broccoli I could throw in.

Sometimes, I'm into easy and quick!

jerseyjay - those butternut squash fries look great! Do you fry them? Bake them? I'm gonna have to try that. Thanks for the inspiration and great pic!
