What's the plan Sam? 2/15/20

The Souschef found petite lobster tails on sale and so we're doing dinner together tonight. He's making classic Lobster Rolls, and I'm making Manhattan Clam Chowder to go with them.

What's going on at your house?

Leftovers

I'm still working away at the flap steak from a week ago (single ). I have an ancient cookbook, Twice is Nice, devoted to leftovers. These will be transmuted into "beef with mustard sauce" tonight and served over a potato-turnip mash. I'm throwing in a cup of frozen peas since I don't feel like making a salad.

Leftovers - I have one cooked pork chop and one uncooked chicken breast that needs cooking tonight. Not sure who will have what. I also have leftover rice pilaf and I'll make fresh salads.

I'm making a big pot of chili. Already made a batch of corn muffins to go with it. A cold beer will round out the meal.

We had frozen, beef tortellini with pasta sauce, and of course some parm and a green salad of green crisp lettuce, green cabbage, a few mustard leaves, celery, and red onion, topped with ranchoid dressing.

Finished off the last of our oxtail soup, along with buttered homemade French bread. Took care of the last of Kroger's sour cream pudding cake.

We're full for sure.

Stew

Some people would call this chili but to prevent provoking the folks, mostly from that other state that starts with T, I'll just call it stew. If beans make 'em mad, they might become apoplectic over liver.

The BH had her favorite greek salad along with a bowl of wonderful homemade cauliflower, leek & onion soup, while I produced a lightly thinned up vodka tomato/basil sauce to place over 3 of my stuffed cannelloni - this for a welcome change from the usual white creamy pecorino sauce.

I'm of course not proud of my lack of any skill at plating things like cannelloni, but it sure tasted great.

I made a batch of ratatouille based lentils in the IP, with the chicken trimmed from the boneless skinless thighs, that I froze 5 lbs of, the other day. I browned the chicken some on high sauté mode, adding some re-hydrated eggplant, and cooked until the EP was starting to brown some.then removed them. Then, on regular sauté, I added a large diced onion, and cooked that until browning a little, then added a large, diced red bell pepper, and cooked that a few minutes, added 4 large minced cloves of garlic, and cooked 1 min. Then I added one 28 oz can of diced tomatoes, 3 c of water, about a half tb of Serbian oregano (in place of the usual thyme), and a generous amount of chopped basil - I had a large handful of leaves, and used half now, half at the end. I salted the liquid with a generous amount of fish sauce - a favorite of mine, in these dishes. Then I added 1 c of rinsed puy lentils, and 1/4 c red quinoa, and about a tb of crushed Thai pepper flakes, and mixed in. I covered, and cooked 14 min. in the "porridge" mode - something I use when the dish will be fairly thick. It cooled 12 min., and I stirred in the rest of the basil. I will definitely make this again; would probably also be good with Italian sausage, or without meat, and maybe more veggies.

We each rummaged for leftovers for supper, but I did make us nice brunch sandwiches - bacon, egg, and cheese on toasted cibatta rolls from Aldi.
