Thread: What's for dinner?

    Default What's for dinner?

    I vowed that I MUST get some stuff out of my freezer. Based on a
    recommendation I got somewhere (I can't remember where), I bought a box of
    mini beef tacos from Trader Joe's. While I was there I also got some
    chicken taquitos and some beef tamales, simply because we were not allergic
    to them.

    Angela had some of each and said they were just okay. I did not try the
    taquitos. I don't much like chicken.

    I had one tamale. The directions said for microwave heating, to wrap in wet
    paper towels and then nuke for 5 to 6 minutes. I did the 6 minutes which
    based on the texture after heating as about a minute too much. Oddly they
    were wrapped in textured paper and not real corn husks. To me, it was just
    okay. Certainly not something I want to try again. Alas, there are two
    more of them in the freezer. When I bought them I assumed that my husband
    would be home to eat them. Nope!

    I really liked the tacos, but they came out soft. Not crisp at all. They
    said to microwave them wrapped in paper towels. Not sure I will buy them
    again because Angela was not thrilled with them. And really with the
    protein to carb count, not something really great for me.

    I also had some baby carrots, but after I ate, I was still hungry. The
    problem (as I said above), too many carbs and probably not enough protein.
    Next time (and based on the amount I have left there will be a next time) I
    will have some green beans instead of the carrots. And I will add some
    additional protein. Perhaps I will try the can of lemon tuna I bought at
    that time.

    But the good thing is, I have freed up some freezer space. I am going to
    work on meals for the upcoming weeks. Angela has been eating pretty much
    chicken and chicken only. If Costco still has that big chicken breast sale
    then I will get some of theirs. If not, I'll get some at the grocery store
    and cook it up for the freezer. Now you just watch this not work! Last
    time I did this she went off of chicken and wouldn't eat it. *sigh*
    Meanwhile I will make some patties out of my organic ground beef, cook it
    and freeze it for myself.

    Next I have to work on the cupboard. I let Angela go hog wild at the big
    health food store where we go only maybe twice a year. That's the place
    where she won the huge assortment of Bob's Red Mill, gluten free products
    last year. She filled our shopping cart with all kinds of gluten free
    pasta. Guess we'd better start eating that. Oddly it does better for my BG
    than the wheat pasta used to. At least the rice pasta does. Perhaps
    because it is so easy to digest? When I use the corn or corn and quinoa
    blend, I tend to use less of it compared to whatever else is in the dish.
    For instance, pasta salad. I do about 1/4 pasta and 3/4 veggies.

    So what's for dinner at your house?

    i was looking for stew meat in the freezer, but found a nice deckel roast(
    part of the brisket) instead tht was taking up quite a bit of room. I
    will pot roast it with some tomato, vegetables(onion, peppers, etc and add
    some small red potatoes, unpeeled near the end( my husband loves those).
    I have some fresh rosemary as well as assorted dried herbs so I should be
    alble to flavor it up well. We will have this along with some(separately
    cooked) cabbage as that is all the vegetables I have around and I don't
    feel like contending with the crowds in the supermarket( Fairway). I do
    wish I had ome mushrooms, but may have some dried in the back of the
    pantry closet.

    I have to commit to cooking what's in the freezer, too, no room for one
    more thing!

    I have a few lbs of large shrimp, half a bag of Chilean sea bass (my
    first purchase of it in months, Wendy!), flank steak (which I only like
    cooked outside on the grill), a LOT of cranberries and some lobster
    stock I boiled down to concentrate after a summer lobster/clam feast for
    company. It's taking us forever to get through the stock pile of Smart
    Carb pocketless pitas and low carb seeded rye wraps, too. Maybe I
    should make a weekday dinner of LC pizza, something I never do but we
    might like.

    I'm open for suggestions. For now, I'm thinking maybe bouillabaise or
    Ina Garten's seafood gratin for company next week. Or maybe bisque?

    I have to unload the box of frozen Sara Lee croissants on somebody, too,
    and the filo wrapped fig and goat cheese appies left over from
    Thanksgiving. Take up room and we won't ever eat them.

    Wendy, I can't imagine what an urban Fairway experience is like; my
    store feels like an obstacle course where you need bumpers on your cart
    and your body. I'm finding that 4-6 p.m. weekdays is my least awful
    time to be there.

    How about shrimp in lobster sauce sans cornstarach:-) Serve it with
    wraps or pitas(don't know if the rye would be too weird) in place of rice
    like in mooshu?

    Wendy, I think once you take away the corn starch and the rice, you call
    it soup. ;-)

    Wonder if Agar Agar would be useful addition to your kitchen.

    Sort of a corn starch replacement?

    If it's good enough, it'll get eaten fast. And I have a lot more fridge
    than freezer room at the moment.

    I think it makes stuff to rubbery. It's nice as a clear flavorless mold
    for pretty fruits, though.

    On the rare occasions I'm thickening stuff, I either use a small
    quantity of Wondra or regular flour, or xanthan gum, which I add to
    fruit cobblers.

    I have never made brisket. Perhaps one day I will.

    I had some once and wound up throwing it out. I kept thinking of what it
    did when we used it in science experiments.

    Julie, ever since I cleaned out my freezer last week I am using up all kinds
    of stuff. Tonight we had beef goulash. I had purchased beef cubes on
    sale at Sam's club and cooked them up with a delicious tomato gravy. I
    then froze the whole thing. I could have either cooked up some root
    vegetables and added the beef and gravy, and made it into a beef stew, or
    simply thickened the gravy and served it as goulash. We decided to do the
    latter. It was totally awesome.

    I'm going to have to find something to do with all that ground beef I have
    in mine. Then there are the weird Asian freezer pop thingies that Angela
    got last summer. They are coconut and something else like strawberry kiwi.
    I might just throw them out. I don't think she is going to eat them.

    Tonight I'm having what's become one of my staples.

    I thawed out a grass-fed beef steakburger and will cook it rare, adding
    a slice of cheese to the top at the end. I plate it and put a good
    dollop of Trader Joe's guacamole on top. To go with it tonight I'll
    cook up a mess of sliced mushrooms after the burger leaves the pan and
    find something green to add as well. A glass of cold seltzer will
    complete the meal.

    Quick, easy, and amazingly delicious!

    It is a togh stringy cut but it responds well to long slow cooking. You
    then cut it across the grain to serve it unles you wnat a "pulled" meat,
    in which case, I guess you just separate those stringy things. I also
    responds to a well flavored sauce and can either be made on to of the
    stove in a covered pot or in the oven with a similarly covered pot or
    roasing pan.

    I make an oven BBQ Brisket in the Summer...it's always a hit. Just a basic
    chili sauce or Ketchup, onions, liquid smoke, a small amount of Brown
    Sugar...about 2-3 Tablespoons, some celery seed and mustard. Total oven
    cooking time is 3 hours plus a 20 minute resting and slicing time.
