My child was on a field trip tonight, and my husband wanted to eat a frozen burrito later in the evening. So, I was in the middle of cooking for a lunch party that I am having tommorrow-- I kept tasting the chicken to see if it was o.k. The, I figured I wasted all but about 200 of my calories for the day. I bought some Turkey Hill Vanilla Ice Cream (with the $1.00 off coupon I earned entering one of thier contests). I decided it looked too good, so I at a serving.

In summary:

Grilled Chicken Breast
A serving of Turkey Hill Vanilla Ice Cream.

I know, gross.

I had tons of fresh spinach so I decided to do something different. Went a little crazy and cooke for a few hours! I made an Indian meal of saag (spinach) paneer and keema which has ground meat, potatoes, peas in it. It was fun. My husband went out and got yogurt to go with it and I made basmati rice. By the way I'm of Polish decent so this doesn't come naturally! It was good!!!

Nothing special here. Probably some gardenburgers & pudding for dessert. My DH was going to make stirfried tofu & broccoli (his specialty, he worked in a Chinese restaurant for 3 years in High School) but he wasn't in the mood to cook.

Just reading the title of the kielbasa/cheese/potato casserole dish is making my mouth water big time!!

Can I come eat eat at y'alls houses? I'm getting ready to throw some generic brand fries in the oven. Then again I might raid the roommate's lettuce and have a bowl of salad. Nobody in this house cooks a full meal except on holidays. The guys' version is throwing steaks on the grill with no side dishes, and I don't eat steak. So, I eat lots of one person meals that have preservatives. I'd kill right now for some carrots and potatos that have been cooking all day in roast juices. Anybody having that? I'll be right there. lol :)

Okay guys I'll post the recipe here. It's so easy as long as you don't mind peeling potatoes. But I have to give credit to a CNA that used to work for me for this recipe. She was a fabulous cook and this is one of the many recipes she gave me. Lorraine was her name and she passed away at age 45 from kidney cancer: every time I make this I recall pleasant memories of her.

Now BIG point here, I make this in a lasagna pan (11x14) because folks here even eat it for breakfast and if by chance there are leftovers it freezes very well. So use the ingredients according to the size casserole you want to make. But I'd make this big one and just freeze what is left.


Spray the bottom of your pan with cooking spray
Slice up kielbasa (I use two packages of the Healthy Choice, because I have yet to find anything grissly in them).
Throw the sliced kielbasa in the bottom of the pan.
Peel and slice (like scalloped potatoes) about 5 pounds of potatos, and put those on top of the sliced kielbasa. Now don't get fancy here, just move 'em around with your hand so they are even.

In a good sized bowl, jump in 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, 2 cans cream of celery soup and 1 1/2 cans (use the empty soup cans) of milk. I add about a tesspoon of garlic salt but you don't have to. Add pepper to raste.

Okay combine this together with a spoon and dump it on top of the potatoes.

Cover it with tin foil and bake about an hour or so (this you need to guage by potatoes being tender) at 350 degrees. I take the foil off for the last 20 minutes or so just to get some color to the top.

This is a sure fire comfort food on a blustery day. Hope you like it and if I haven't been clear about the recipe please let me know.

Now it's my turn, how about coughing up the chicken fried steak recipe and the one for Brunswick Stew ??


OH CRAP, I forgot to put in there to also add a can of Campbell's Cheddar Cheese soup to that milk/cheese/soup concoction.

My chicken fried steak recipe is pretty simple.

I buy cubed beef steaks. I make a mixture of flour, salt, pepper, and LOTS of garlic powder and set it aside. Then I take a couple of eggs, beat well, and add a touch of vanilla extract, a little bit of vinegar, lots of A-1 sauce, and just a tad of tabasco sauce to the beaten up eggs.

Dip the cubed steaks in the egg mixture, then coat the steaks in the flour, both sides. Make sure that the whole piece of meat is well coated with the flour mixture. Let the meat set for a few minutes and then dip it very quickly in the egg mixture again and then back into the flour. Sometimes I do this three or four times, depending on how crunchy I want the steaks.

When the pieces of meat are well coated with the flour, I place them in a frying pan filled with preheated oil. Corn oil is good, and so is peanut oil. But the oil has to be hot when you put the meat in the frying pan, or the coating will fall off the meat.

Fry on both sides until the meat is done the way you like it. Personally, I like my meat well done.


Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Leftovers for the DH and the kids:
Hamburger-Macaroni Casserole
Corn
Salad

I'm having a sub, didn't make it to the table in time :worry: .

Thanks for the two recipes! Now if somebody could tell me how to make chicken fried chicken and the brown gravy, just like Cracker Barrel, I will be set!

Current, my Mom makes fried apples, but they may not be the way Cary makes them though.

Slice apples, leave peel on. Cook them in melted butter in a skillet, my Mom uses cast iron (don't know if that makes a difference), add sugar to taste after the apples become soft. You can add other spices if you want.

We were going out to dinner. We're selling a minivan and the purchaser lives in Virginia, so the van will have to pass Va inspection. We took it over to Vienna to a station that the purchaser recommended and planned to have dinner at Panjshir II. It's this great Afghan restaurant. One of our favorites. (Getting there was another matter - traffic was terrible and I was driving my Miata with a stick shift. A stick chift is not fun in stop-and-go traffic.)

Imagine the horror: the whole block of stores in this mini-strip was closed! Some of the stores had plywood covering the windows. So, instead of sambosa ghosti (spelled wrong) and aush (spelled right), we went to Tara Thai and had curry. I had chicken curry. DH had beef curry.

I do have a recipe for a mild Indian curry - the kind that you used to be able to find in London. My daughter made that a couple of months ago and it was a big hit.

Uh-oh, I swear this doesn't happen very often, but I think my answer was the same last time there was a thread on this topic! And that is...nothing! Until I saw this thread, I had forgotten to eat! (And it's 10:30 pm now.) I was out of the house from about 5:45 to 8:45 pm, taking my older son somewhere he needed to go, buying shoes for the younger one, & picking the older one up again... The kids had a quick dinner of oatmeal (!) before we left the house, but I never got anything for myself, and my DH hasn't eaten either. I'll probably have some kind of snack before bed, since it seems kind of late for a meal and I'm not that hungry.

Okay, here goes, (i haven't written it down in years)
first step: sauce: 1 can of tomato sauce
1 can of tomato paste
1 garlic clove pressed and mixed in
1 heaping tbs of brown sugar (less if you don't like sweet sauce)
spices to taste: oregano, basil (I use lots of both of these) a bit of rosemary, 1 to 1 1/2 tsps of marjoram, a dash of celery salt, a dash of regular salt, a bay leaf,
a dash of thyme
then simmer for a hour to 3 hrs

crust: 2 cups warm water, 1 package of yeast (or 3 tbsp from a bulk jar of yeast) -sprinkle 1 tbsp sugar (or less if don't like sweet) but sugar is a must to get yeast to work -a dash of salt
place in a warm place for yeast to "forment"- after yeast has "formented or fomented-can't remember the term) then add enough flour to make a firm yet not sticky ball, place some extra flour on board and knead till a satiny consistency and then place in a greased bowl with warm damp towel on top and let double. After doubling, split the ball in half and roll out for crust; placing the crust on greased cookie sheet that also has some cornmeal on sheet, and before baking with all the ingredients on top, bake for 7 mins at 375 degrees (for crust to brown) then take out of oven and start assembling pizza. I use muenster cheese, mozzarella and provolone - cheese is your choice -have fun.
assembly: Crust
sauce
cheeses

OK... had to add my dinner from tonight. My son had his 16th birthday yesterday and requested his "special dinner" too late to make, so we had it tonight instead.

Being New Englanders, my kids love a good clam boil and take every opportunity to have one. That was his request. Not being a native New Englander, I have never developed a taste for clams myself, so I cheat and have lobstah (that's lobster for for those who don't get the accent ;) ).

Gotta love milestone birthdays too... got his drivers permit today and a clam boil... life for him is very good.

Leftovers & you get to pick it out of the fridge & heat it yourself! I only have 2 teenagers to feed & they wouldn't voulunteer so this is what they get!! I take one night a week off from cooking & if they don't help out (& tonight they were at eachothers throats!) .......... I really should "live off the fat of the land" & not eat! I have taken up walking esp. during my lunch hour, as I work in a kitchen & we have a baker who can blow my will power with her dinner rolls! but love this thread i haven't had fried apples in years though I did bake some last week! :)

Okay here is the Beef with Mushrooms recipe (crockpot)

1 1/2 lbs. stewing beef, cubed
4 oz. can mushrooms, drained (save liquid)
Half a garlic clove, minced
3/4 cup sliced onions
3 Tbs. shortening
1 beef bouillon cube
1 cup hot water
8 oz. can tomato sauce
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Brown meat, mushrooms, garlic, and onions in shortening in skillet. Dissolve bouillon cube in hot water. Add to meat mixture. Stir in mushroom liqui and rest of ingredients. Mix well. Pour into crockpot. Cover. Cook on high for 3 hours, or until meat is tender. Serve over spaghetti, rice, or noodles.

Note: Next time I would drain the stew meat before adding the bouillon water (a layer of grease is on top after it is cooked). I also put in chopped frozen green pepper (I keep this on hand all the time). I think I would add more seasoning. It was good.

So on Friday we had leftovers of this and last night DH made his version of chicken alfredo. Tonight we may have brats, with the fixins.

There now I'm caught up!

Hollandaise SauceCopyright 2000 Television Food Network, G.P. All rights reservedShow: Food 911 Episode: Botched Breakfast in Roselle Illinois


4 egg yolks
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted (1 stick)
Pinch cayenne
Pinch salt
Vigorously whisk the egg yolks and lemon juice together in a stainless steel bowl and until the mixture is thickened and doubled in volume. Place the bowl over a saucepan containing barely simmering water (or use a double boiler,) the water should not touch the bottom of the bowl. Continue to whisk rapidly. Be careful not to let the eggs get too hot or they will scramble. Slowly drizzle in the melted butter and continue to whisk until the sauce is thickened and doubled in volume. Remove from heat, whisk in cayenne and salt. Cover and place in a warm spot until ready to use for the eggs benedict. If the sauce gets too thick, whisk in a few drops of warm water before serving.

WOW, reading these posts make me miss the fat , calories, and carbs I gave up 3 years ago.... :frown4:

I cannot imagine ordering a pizza or eating fried chicken.

We are having skinless chicken breasts from the foreman grill, stewed tomatoes, and a green salad with no cal vinagrette. Perhaps a glass of crystal lite lemonade to slosh it all down.

Gotta go fix dinner....

My mouth is watering so much! PKB, phad thai is one of my all time favorite meals. Extra spicy, please! I used to work near Capitol Hill in Denver, and there is such a great little Thai place called Tommy's Thai on Colfax. I would eat there for lunch all the time, and I miss it so much now that I don't work near there anymore!

For dinner tonight I'm having boca burgers.

I couldn't agree more.

This thread makes me long for things I gave up long ago.

Happy Halloween!
It's a family tradition, we trick or treat in the neighborhood that I grew up in.
Mema & Papa(my parents) have tacos, chili and the fixins waiting for us when we are done hauling in our loot!

Now if I could only get someone to haul my a** around the neighborhood, the night would be perfect! LOL

Waiting for my boyfriend to get home so I can beg him to take me out to dinner!! I know I'm weird, but I absolutely hate halloween and try my best to avoid it. Since it's not really possible and I have to be a good sport as I am in college living with 5 Halloween obsessed roomies, I at least want some non-Halloween time alone with my boyfriend before I have to face reality!!:frown4:

FYI: I took chicken broth and a package of sliced mushooms and cooked them down and added a cream to make cream of mushroom soup. I used it the next nite when I made chicken enchiladas. The guys said they were the best ones Id made so far. Guess Ill be skipping the canned stuff from now on unless Im in a time crunch (hmm thats always, oh well)
