What's for dinner tonight? [More:]

I'm eating what probably several million people around the world will be eating tonight - chicken and rice.

How about you?

Yes, I realise it's still only lunchtime for the majority of you. Tell me what's for lunch, if you prefer.
Make that several million and three, as I'm cooking chicken and rice for two here. With baaaaaaacon.

Well, funny that you should mention chicken and rice, because if I get my way, I am going to get either the husband or the kid to drive to my favorite Indian spot and get takeaway chicken tikka masala. Which I will consume while watching the last two episodes of season four of the Wire.

Bacon sandwiches for lunch. Leftover broccoli cheese soup for dinner.

I haven't even had breakfast yet. Dinner is gonna be leftover spaghetti and garlic bread.

I just made vegetarian vegetable soup for the teens/kids in the program I run. I'll probably take some home for dinner... lunch seems to be a yogurt and popcorn.

Steak and Egg, most likely.

I'd like to think about dinner, but it's fucking snowing here.

Your recipe of cabbage and sausage yum!

artisanal bread, roasted sweet potatoes with cippolini. Guy gets home tomorrow and I will make roasted regular potatoes with crimini and porcini, to be served with salad. We got lots of potatoes in the CSA this weekend.

Homemade marinara (one benefit of a sick day: time to make homemade stuff) and whole grain fusilli!

Cincinnati Chili for dinner, probably.

Yellow curry that I made last night for lunch, and takeout pad thai with the college girl friends for dinner.

Crockpot leftovers - chicken thighs, carrots, potatoes, red onions, wild rice, and mixed beans (kidneys, pintos, black beans). I say leftovers, but that kind of thing really only hits its stride on the second day anyway.

Leftover "wild" mushroom soup, green salad and crusty bread. After the wife has gotten out of school she has been on a serious cooking kick. Yay me!

Lunch is coffee with milk, a slice of toasted challah, and an apple.

Dinner will probably be a baked potato, some broccoli, and a chunk of cheddar.

Not a lot of cooking going on around here lately.

Elsa, your lunch sounds perfect to me.

Ha, and I was thinking I might crash AwkwardPause's home, to share their perfect dinner!

Tonight we'll be repurposing leftover red sauce to make homemade eggplant lasagna. We've got hella leftovers to finish up. But soon -- SOON -- I will be making the potato pancakes Joe Beese linked below and dumping sauteed veggies all over the top.

We are on the third day of our roast chicken, so that means it's soup day! Standard soup with some lentils, orzo, carrots (never celery, oh how I hate celery) and chicken. Spiced up with lots of ginger, sweet chili sauce and a glob of peanut butter.
posted by gaspode 14 October | 14:06
The plan: Chicken quesadilla (leftover chicken bits and cheese thrown in a tortilla), refried mayacoba beans (from a Goya can, this is "got home late eating" afterall), and maduros.

We'll see if I get home from work early enough. If not, I might eat bbq ribs, mac and cheese and potato salad for the third night in a row since that just requires minimal nuking for the first two items.

Chicken and something green. Depends what looks good veggie wise.

I didn't eat lunch today at work (and have been on my feet since 1130, ugh) so dinner tonight will likely be a salad, apple, and maybe some pizza before dance class, with spaghetti and meatballs afterwards.

Fuck it, I'm leaving early.

Fish sticks! Got a craving for them today. Probably haven't had them since childhood.

I was out and in a hurry, so I wanted to get a Ginsters pasty at the newsagent.

However, they only had Walls, so I had to settle for a Walls Steak Slice instead. Which is slightly worse than the Ginsters.

I lied. I WANTED chicken tikka masala, but in the end I made broccoli pasta. It smells mighty fine.

Lentil soup.

Off to have dinner with my parents. Heading north of Toronto to Markham for some Chinese! Hungry.

I've got marinara to use up. So pasta. Maybe I'll make up a salad to go with it.

Update on dinner with the parents:

We had crispy fried tofu, marinated sprouts, pepper steak, some kind of cold-ailing soup with chinese almonds, carrots and pork, chicken stir-fried with baby bok-choy and a steamed fish in soya sauce and ginger. And rice of course! For dessert, I had silken tofu, my father had black sesame soup (?) and my mother had red-bean soup.

I'm stuffed.

I am still hungry and I don't think I have any food in the house.
posted by amro 14 October | 20:58
I have apples getting soft. Maybe I will make some crisp, want some?

We had spaghetti

Just back from the markets with fresh turmeric and galangal, so I guess Tom Yum soup (or a variant) is it for tonight.

If anyone spots a small yellowish/red mushroom cloud in the suburbs of Sydney tonight, I probably overdid the spices. Again.

chicken, broccoli, and a boxed noodle side dish. Nothing fancy.
The chicken was good, though, if a bit trashy. Mix equal amounts mayo and parmesan cheese, and spread over chicken breasts. Top with crushed cheez-it crackers and bake. My roommate's stepmom cooks it like that, he always thought it was some fancy to-do, and when he finally got the recipie from her we both sort of went bug eyed over it. "cheez-its? are you kidding me?? huh."

Leftover lamb biryani. It was yummy.

Three of us supervisors took out a departing employee to dinner at a Japanese small-plates restaurant.

We had several plates of assorted sushi, tuna rolls, an unagi roll, a shiso hamachi roll, marinated matsutaki mushrooms, kurabota pork katsu, an unbelievably delicious pork belly melt-in-your-mouth thing (which we immediately ordered several more plates of), pumpkin fried rice (served in a hollowed out squash), chu-toro nigiri, hotategai (scallops), a salmon roll, several masus of Otokayama, several Sapporos, and, since that wasn't enough, some mango and tempura ice cream.

We were determined to make him miss us.
