What's for Dinner?

Discussion in 'The Connoisseur' started by Rosie, May 31, 2006.

  1. Rotisserie chicken from Costco with Mexican beans and rice.

    I'm also trying out a potato diet. Which consists of a cold boiled or baked potato eaten plain (no butter, sour cream, etc) for breakfast and lunch at least three times a week. The key is that when the potato gets cold the starch and carbohydrates is removed or neutralized, so I'll see how well it works.

  2. We had a vegan friend over for lunch today and my wife cooked a strict vegan menu......so I had pork chops for dinner.....just pork chops!

  3. Breakfast for dinner last night. Bacon, sausage, garlic country red potatoes, cheesey scrambled eggs, and toast.
  4. Ross il-forn. It's a Maltese dish similar to baked ziti. I make it ahead and freeze it alongside other meals for the week, as my schedule has been busy up until now with the holidays. My stepfather's family is Maltese-American (hence my user name, Valletta Valentine) and they cook some amazing food that's also inexpensive to prepare. http://www.amaltesemouthful.com/baked-rice-ross-il-forn/

    This year we will! Last year we had pozole with the extended surrogate family, it's a Mexican pork and hominy soup (can also be made with chicken) garnished with cabbage, onions and radishes. :p :D

  11. Leave out the salami, put the sugar back in the Reese's cups and swap the Dr Pepper for Coke or Sprite and you have one of my girlfriend-is-out-tonight dinners. It's funny, Otis Spunkmeyer has all but disappeared from NYC, but I remember eating their cookies (a lot) back in the '80s and '90s.

    Last night made broiled salmon with rice and broccoli. Tonight made some 'tiny purses' or date turnovers, a recipe from the 16th century. They are quite tasty. Ran out of date filling so made some cherry turnovers using cherry pie filling to use up the puff paste.

Choice of pumpkin or apple pie for dessert.

    This was Hubby's first go-round.
