Chorizo and chicken, with onions and garlic - slowly cooked in cider with sweetcorn and red onion (chopped small) rice. (My secret is called 'Aromat') comes in a small yellow tub and a bit of that in the rice makes it taste amazing. With Salad and crusty rolls to dip in the natural oil that comes out of the chorizo. YUMMMM :)

Went to a friend's daughters birthday party who happens to be Mexican, the party was on May 8, and holy cow that food was awesome! A chicken & cabbage soup; corn tortillas with chicken, refried beans & Spanish rice;pork carnitas; watermelon water; Horchata & Tres Le Che for dessert. This meal was especially good since I had to do no cooking!

Matzo lasagna.  Basically, use the matzo in place of the noodles, be a little generous with the sauce (they soak up a lot) and back as usual.


The filling was just cooked veggies in the fridge.  It's amazing how much their texture turns out like noodles.


I made a béchamel to feel like I actually cooked something.    :D

Old school....Tuna noodle casserole, complete with crushed potato chips on top. Used a couple jars of the albacore I canned last year.

We started a new game last weekend for Compound Dinner.  We put each letter of the alphabet in a bag and someone pulled a letter (in this case C).  This week everyone had to bring a dish beginning with C.  I made mini Chicken Cordon Bleu using skinless, boneless thighs that were on sale last week.  


I trimmed them of excess fat and laid them out loosely on some cling.  Then folded up the cling to a rectangle and pounded flat to that shape.



Then I put a layer of ham and a pile of Swiss cheese, salted the ends and rolled tight in the cling.  



After an hour in the icebox I dusted in seasoned flour, then egg wash then into home made bread crumbs.  I let them rest for 20 minutes then into a 350 oven till the temp was 170f.   They were delicious I made 16 and had one left over.

Hey Mike9, check this out, got home Sunday night and started to chase my cat (for fun). Lo and behold, tripped on my dryer, fell flat on my face & received a humorous fracture! Hurts like hell!!! Not doing to awful much cooking now, just sidelines.

Baked Ziti with Italian sausage & ricotta.

post #6081 of 6352

Love ziti. Not so much as a pasta, but as a scoring opportunity in Scrabble like word games.

@chefbuba do you use white wheat high fiber pasta?



post #6083 of 6352

Just regular 'ol Barilla

post #6084 of 6352

Today was the letter "H" day so I made "Hawg Jihad".  Pork tenderloin wrapped in pork sausage wrapped in a bacon weave.  The hot sausage one got a maple bacon weave the sweet sausage one got a straight up bacon weave.  Damn this was goooooood and seriously goes toe to toe with Beef Wellington . . . maybe edges it out by a smidgen too because - hello - there's no bacon in Beef Wellington - duh!!  :lol:  :lol:  :beer:     




Each of these came in under $10, but since it's not a complete dish I didn't feel it qualified for the challenge.

Looks good Mike.

Last night I made a steak pie I found online: http://pubfoodideas.com/. Didn't take a picture, but it turned out alright. Been on a spree of cooking traditional British dishes for a while now

Most of the time we eat some legumes before sleeping. Black, navy, lima, kidney, or pinto beans provides half of the suggested daily intake of tryptophan. Dishes like lentils are my family fav dinner.
