Had leftover homemade salsa and 1/2 a can of coconut milk leftover from saturdays chicken satays. Made it into a kind of tikka masala sauce. Added curry powder, cardomons, whole fried cumin seeds, coriander powder, and garam masala brought to the boil with shoulder steak. Then in the oven med heat for 1 1/2 hours. sprinkle of cilantro at the end. Munched that with naan bread, chopped hard boiled eggs and plain yogurt:lips:

Antipasto salad with salami, boccaccini, hot peppers, kalamatas, radichio and a basic vinaigrette. Served with a crusty italian bread grilled in olive oil and garlic. 7 minutes start to finish and fabulous with the house red.

The 'breakfast, lunch, dinner' thread, whatever it is actually called, has quite a few pages of what various folks have eaten recently. Some even include pictures.

Last night's dinner was actually quite tasty. As I mentioned elsewhere, I braised some lamb shanks in white wine with garlic and rosemary the night before. I served the coarsely chopped lamb drizzled with a reduction of the braising liquid and a bit of fresh mint on top. Alongside was a pile of spaghetti with browned butter and mizithra. Yep, just like the classic stuff from The Old Spaghetti Factory, but much better tasting :smiles:

Not to take away from the other huge post Suzanne started.......but we had dinner on the cheap! Hot dog night. A couple of Low Fat Hebrew National dogs with the basic stuff,,,,,mustard, relish and onions. Left over potatoes from last night only sauteed tonight. Yippee!

Tomorrow is burgers or maybe leftovers from the BBQ. Have some ribs and brisket I food sealed. Just not sure I want to blow that many points this early in the week.;) Have some skirt I picked up at Whole Foods for Fajitas or soft tacos. Maybe those, with a salad instead.:cool:

I made a big pot of spicy chicken soup. :) It's one of my favorite recipes. I toss all of the following in one pot:

Family pack of chicken thighs (skinless, about 10)
2 stalks of celery
Handful of baby carrots (chopped)
1 16 oz bag of frozen mixed vegetables
1/4 of a red onion (chopped)
2 cups of parboiled rice
8 - 10 cups of water
1 tbsp chipotle powder
1 tbsp dried chives
1 tbsp dried basil
1 tbsp dried parley
1 tbsp dried cilantro
1 finely chopped jalapeno pepper
few cloves of garlic or 2 tbsp garlic powder
few dashed of Worchestershire Sauce

Turn it on and let it cook until the chicken is done. Fresh from the pot, it's very soupy. Once it sits, the rice soaks up all the water. The measurements above are just the ones I use that work for me. Feel free to add or remove whatever seasonings will turn it into a comfort food for you. :)

I made a few different dishes last week.....here they come:

I did a Tillapia Piccata w/ capers, Basil Tomato Parmesan Orzo, Cucumber Jiccama Red onion Chili oil salad.

another night i grilled some chicken with a chipoltle marinate consisting of chipoltle, honey, soy, and olive oil. cut the chicken and put it on top of some home made gnocchi, with a gorgonzola cream sauce and a better than sex chocolate cake...this thing was crazy good, made a dark chocolate/orange glaze to top it.

Did a Yellow curry with chicken. and fried some wonton to go along with it.

one night did a shrimp/sausage cajun alfredo.

seems like i did a stuffed pork chop as well. thick chop stuffed with spinach, cream cheese, feta, sun dried tomato, pepper, lemon zest. i think that was all last week ha.

Had a friend come over to mow lawn for me (recovering from back surgery) so I tossed a slab of spares on the BBQ pit(new Traeger), made some cornbread and cole slaw.

I made a sausage and mushroom pizza. Was a little disappointed since I had wanted to use a locally made Tuscan red wine sausage, but the one store was out and I didn't want to run around looking for it. Regular italian was fine.
