Thread: Dinner 1/7 will be...

    Default Dinner 1/7 will be...

    Grilled lamb shoulder chops, medium-rare, seasoned with salt & pepper.
    Immediately off the fire, lightly brush with olive oil, minced garlic, basil
    and a splash of lemon juice. Mashed potatoes and steamed whole green beans
    will round out the meal.

    What's on your menu for tonight?

    Not Sure. We're expecting a niece and her meat & potatoes husband.

    It will either be Santa Maria Style Tri Tip or I have some THICK
    porterhouses that I can bone into a Fillet & a NY. The fillet side should
    be 6 to 7 Oz.

    Crashed potatoes
    Red Onion, Cucumber, & Tomato salad
    Some veggie probably green beans or spinach.

    Different strokes, I guess. I'd use the olive oil, garlic and lemon
    for the green beans, and just s&p for the lamb chops.

    At the moment we're stuffed with dim sum so tonight it'll be something
    simple and light. Maybe linguini with clam sauce, tossed salad, and
    garlic .....Well, I need a name for this: flour tortilla smaller than
    burrito size, rubbed heavily with cut garlic clove, spread with butter
    and covered with microplaned parmesan cheese, crisped in the toaster
    oven. What would you call that? -aem

    We are having meat loaf with French fires and broccoli. It's comfort
    food on a cold, wet winter night.

    Spinach salad and a 'fly by the seat of your pants' cheddar cheese chowder.
    Or maybe you could call it potato cheese soup. Your choice

    Mmmm... dim sum. Your "light" <g> dinner sounds delish. Did you have a
    white clam sauce? If so, how do you make yours?

    Pasta... with sausage, garlic and tomato (wish I had fresh basil).

    The sausage was Trader Joe's Chicken Sausage with Mushroom and Asiago.
    Tomato was a can of generic Italian style diced tomato - probably from
    Safeway.

    I used two sausages from a package of four. I cut them in half
    lengthwise and then into quarter inch lengths. I sautéed them on
    medium low until they began to brown, then added chopped garlic (5
    cloves - fresh)... after both were browned I added the tomato, which
    I had buzzed in my mini-food processor. After that, I added
    (approximately) a quarter teaspoon of dried oregano and let everything
    simmer. Add some pasta liquid if it looks like it's separating. You
    only know if you're *experienced*... I know, I've been there. Yes,
    someone had to tell me.

    When the pasta (linguini tonight) was done, I drained it and dumped it
    into the sauce - I reserved some cooking liquid.

    Because the sauce looked like it needed some extra liquid (it was
    separating), I added pasta water to it. Previously, when the sauce
    looked like it was separating, I added 1/4 C (max) of wine... I used a
    dry white, but red will work too.

    OK, I don't measure! This is the best I can do for wider audiences
    <I'm talking to you, Wayne>.

    I'd bet real money that she pouts more about not being invited over to
    your place than you pout over not being invited over to hers.

    I'm a "big" sister. I know about these things.

    That sounds really good! I like everyday dinner as simple as
    possible.

    Have you tried putting a top coating of mayonnaise on salmon steaks
    when you broil? It's good! A Japanese stewardess introduced me to
    that (I won't tell you how many years ago).

    To save space I'll answer the both of you on this post. It's a soup I just sort of make. I'll make
    a light roux. Generaly it's the usual butter and flour roux but I made this one out of maybe 2
    tablespoons of bacon grease. Before adding the flour I did a saute' of small dice of green bell
    pepper, onion and a clove of garlic. It wasn't really a saute'. I just wanted the veggies on the
    limp side but with a little crunch. Next came the chicken stock and potatoes. I seasoned with s&p.
    After the potatoes simmered around for maybe 20 minutes (until crisp tender) I added maybe 1 1/2
    cups (maybe more) of shredded cheddar and a about 1 1/2 cups whole milk. I kept seasoning to taste.
    When the cheese was just about melted I dumped in some frozen corn. Probably about 1/2 cup. Topped
    with crumbled bacon and served with spinach salad. It was good.
