Tuesday Dinner???? - cjs - 08-12-2008

Well, a night off for me - we'll be eating somewhere in Tacoma tonight. We're off to start looking for another 5th wheel, we want to downsize from what we have now. Really thought we would spend more time and longer time on the road, but since we're not we don't need this big a rig. But, oh I will miss this kitchen - I spent almost 3 years finding it! oh well, I spend most of the time cooking outside anyway.

Anyway, back to food - what are you all up to?

I have two zuchinni on the counter that came home from camping with us. I should use them, but it's only two and I'm not sure what to do. Any ideas??

I'm planning to make the bricked orange glazed chicken from one of the grilling books.

Re: Tuesday Dinner???? - Trixxee - 08-12-2008

Well, the three books I ordered came yesterday so now I've got a lot of recipes at my finger tips. The ancho chile chicken w/black beans and yellow rice looks good. The orange/fennel chicken with kalamata mashed potatoes looks good. The chicken caccitore w/parmesan polenta looks good. And the chicken stuffed with spinach, tomatoes and swiss with a side of sauteed spaghetti w/garlic & chives looks good as well.

I'll probably make all of these within the next 10 days or so.

Well, I'm doing a rerun of the French Onion Salisbury Steak, but it was SOOO GOOD! I think I'll double it up so I can freeze for school.

I didn't type up the pasta, but all you do is heat a non-stick skillet and toss in cooked and drained pasta (4 oz.) with two cloves garlic and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Toss until warmed through and serve with chopped fresh chive.

Thanks, Daphne. I do have that book, I have no idea why I haven't noticed that recipe before. Now that I am looking at the pictures, it looks even better! I think this will be what we are having tonight. I knew it had to involve chicken because we have been eating a lot of pork and beef lately. Unusual for us.
Darn it! Now that chicken paillard with caprese salad is tempting me too!

Re: Tuesday Dinner???? - Trixxee - 08-12-2008

Theresa - the chicken paillard recipe was very good. And healthy!

Re: Tuesday Dinner???? - - 08-12-2008

Thanks, Daphne, that really looks good - I am going to have to break down and buy these other Cuisine cookbooks - you guys are always talking about "this and that" and making me and Mister hungry!!! Again, thanks for posting this one -
