Yesterday I made a big pot of navy bean/pasta soup (Italian sausage, veggies, chicken stock, herbs/spices, etc.) so it could sit and age nicely all day today. Earlier today I made a loaf of N.Y. Times Bread to go with. Can't wait...for the soup OR the bread. Yum!
Mongolian BBQ - left over from yesterday. You pick the main item(s) (I picked beef & shrimp), & go to a sort-of salad bar looking counter & pick the items you want. I picked noodles & a bunch of veggies (broc etc), pineapple. The chef cooks it all up on a Mongolian BBQ pit (see below) in front of you. Fun!Strawberrry cheesecake that I didn't eat yesterday.
Going out again, I cannot wait for my kitchen to be mine again At least I can bake...Made some more parmesan,basil,lemon zest crisps to have with some creamy tomatoe soup for lunch..Oh boy where to go for dinner..I'm out of ideas..
I wasn't thrilled with my dinner tonight. I had some uncured turkey "hot dogs" from the food co-op. I made a pizza crust dough and wrapped them up with cheese and tomato sauce. Found out I HATE uncured turkey hot dogs. On the bright side, the crust tasted delicious!
dw made a pretty tasty lemon roasted chicken, spanish rice, and cranberry sauce for last night's dinner.
afterwards, i had to use up 4 huge pork chops, so i finally got around to making my spinach and goat cheese stuffed chops.
i toasted 2 large cloves of garlic and 2 golf ball sized shallots in evoo, then wilted a half bag of spinach in the oil. after cooling, i mixed it with a half stick of goat cheese and 5 minced dried plums.
the mix was stuffed into a pocket cut into the chops, and they were sealed with a toothpick.
the stuffed chops were then breaded and baked at 425 for 35 minutes.
i tasted a bit last night, and oh man! i can't wait to have them for lunch!
