Wednesday's Dinner??
  Re: (...)
All I know is I'm doing something with homemade ricotta - lots of ideas everywhere and now in C@H also! There's a Roasted Red Pepper sauce in Issue #12 that looks good. There's also a good lookin' one, Pasta with Spinach pesto, corn, & beans that looks good too. (Issue #46) decisions, decisions....

What are you all up to?

Well, I've got some figure friendly Italian sausage (they're made of chicken and actually pretty darn good), a red bell pepper, an onion and some fresh basil. I need to figure out exactly what to do with it all.

We'll be having some leftover ribs that Ron put in the smoker last night. I bought Sweet Bourbon Glaze from the Pepper Palace while I was on vacation. It's wonderful!

I can do this! Thank you for the recipe, cjs. I can cross one thing off my to-find list.

I'm going to make a Breaded Steak Cutlet with Cream Gravy and believe it or not, Instant Mashed Potatoes. Marilee found these instant mashed at Costco and they are surprisingly good. They are by Paradise Valley, ALL NATURAL Creamy Mash Potaotes, 100% pure & Simple. Contains Russet potatoes, butter and salt. Period. The box weighs 5.6 pounds and contains 14 pouches with 8 servings each for a total of 112 servings.

Although I like lumpy mashed potatoes I did enjoy these creamy ones. They are pleasantly and surprisingly good.
Don't wait too long to tell someone you love them.

We are either going to have Lab's summer pasta with some chix. sausage thrown in or we'll grill some pizzas.

Billy what time should we be there for dinner??? Sounds really good.

I'm thinking about something easy - maybe Tangerine Beef, rice, and some stir fried veggies. Yup sounds good.

...maybe Tangerine Beef...

That sounds interesting. Would you mind posting the recipe for that one? Thanks!

I've got several - and have been wanting to try one, so I think this one is it! It sounds good, and after the last 2 nights of complicated dinners this looks really really easy.
From RecipeZarr:

Tangerine Beef
This is one of my favorite takeout dishes - it's sweet and hot; I've had this with both beef and chicken (for tangerine chicken or shrimp, use chicken broth instead of beef).
by ChrisMc

1 lb flank steaks
4 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons sherry wine
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 tangerines
1/2 cup cornstarch, plus
3 tablespoons cornstarch
6 dried red chilies
2 tablespoons minced onions
2 tablespoons orange juice (or juice from the tangerines)
4 tablespoons beef broth
3 tablespoons sugar

1. Slice steak against grain and pound with tenderizer.
2. Combine 1 tbs soy sauce, 1 tbs sherry, pepper, egg yolk, and sesame oil; marinate beef in mixture.
3. Peel tangarines; boil peel and shred.
4. Coat the beef with cornstarch.
5. Heat oil in a wok and brown beef.
6. Remove the beef; add the chilis to the hot oil and stir-fry.
7. Add tangerine peel and onion and stir-fry.
8. Add remaining soy sauce, sherry, orange juice, and beef broth and bring to a boil.
9. Add sugar and stir until caramelized.
10. Add beef and stir to coat.
