    Default Dinner tonight - 1/10/2011

    Veal piccata
    Angel hair pasta in alfredo (oh, pardon me! cream sauce with freshly grated
    Parmesan cheese)
    Steamed flat leaf spinach
    Garlic breadsticks

    Veal Piccata:

    4 very thin veal scallops
    1/4 c. flour
    salt & pepper
    2 Tbs. butter + 2 Tbs. olive oil
    2 Tbs. dry white wine
    1 lemon
    2 Tbs. capers

    Season the flour with salt & pepper. Dredge the veal in flour and place on
    waxed paper to set. Heat the butter and oil in a large skillet. Quickly
    brown the veal on both sides over high heat. Remove to a warm platter and
    set aside. Deglaze the pan with wine and the juice of 1/2 a lemon. Cook
    the sauce, stirring constantly, for a couple of minutes. Add capers and
    heat through. Spoon the sauce over the veal. Slice the remaining lemon and
    use as garnish with fresh sprigs of parsley.

    What's on your menu?

    Oddly enough, I'm having Piccata too; however, mine will be pork, not veal.
    Mine will be served on a bed of fettucine; the piccata sauce (about twice
    the quantity of yours, it appears) will "dress" the pasta. Steamed broccoli
    will be the vegetable; though I may make a last minute change to California
    Blend or similar. Counting carbs here, so no bread.

    I'm taking a gander at the lamb risotto that Guisi mentioned. We
    have some vanilla pears that I canned last fall, so we'll have those for
    dessert.

    I forgot to mention garlic in the recipe. Must have garlic! Three cloves
    or so, minced and sauteed in the butter/oil.

    I've made piccata with pork cutlets, chicken cutlets and sole. They're all
    good Enjoy your dinner!

    last night -- waiting on the snow -- crockpot white chicken chili
    (shredded chicken, turkey broth, drained white beans, canned chili
    seasoned tomatoes, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder), corn
    bread, cheese quesadillas

    tonight -- snowed in and feelling lazy -- mac and cheese, hot dogs,
    sliced fruit

    That sounds really good!

    I'm probably just making spaghetti, and then the kid and I are going to
    try our hands (finally) at making some bread-and-butter pickles.

    I made the SO a 'New York' pepper steak with grilled veges, and 'chat'
    potatoes in a hot sour cream sauce.

    I had a wild mushroom rissotto.

    A stir-fry:

    left-over hamburger

    left-over breaded chicken piece

    left-over bacon

    left-over carmelized onions (I love these so I made 4 onions a couple of
    days ago and saved it).

    rice (see my thread about rice cooking questions)

    steamed asparagus

    red and yellow peppers

    Peppers in frying pan with olive oil and garlic, add steamed asparagus,
    add rice and all the left-overs and some soy-like substance for
    salt/flavor (we use Dr. Bronner's, I think). Was most yummilicious.

    Also bought some cheese and basil crepes at the local Fairway's - our
    14-year-old liked them with tomatoe sauce on them, and he had some
    stir-fry as well.

    It was delicious! I left out the raisins, as DH isn't a fan of them
    in meat. I quadrupled the recipe to feed us, though I only needed about
    two quarts of the stock. It was so good! We served buttered green
    beans and the vanilla pears for dessert.

    Love veal picatta, but haven't made it for a while. Your dinner
    sounds delicious.

    I was too tired to make much tonight. Made shrimp and vegetable
    fried rice, as I had a good amount of leftover rice from yesterday.
    Didn't make anything else to go with it, but it was very tasty.
