Dinner thread.
I had Spaghetti squash with onions, sauteed with pizza spice, roasted brussel sprouts with olive oil and balsamic, and fake chicken nuggets with barbecue sauce. And Pinot Grigio. So happy.

I am not hungry yet because I had a very late lunch, but when I am I will have leftover mushroom bourgignon and I am baking banana bread for dessert.

I categorically deny that I make chicken because I learned how to make gravy and gravy is good. I also want to have chicken quesadillas for lunch tomorrow, so the gravy was just a happy side effect.

I made grilled chicken, and harvested the grease to make gravy with onions. And I nuked a potato and put gravy over both chicken and potato. I should have some carrots too.

I had a pasta and spinach concoction followed by a pomegranate and then some gelt. :)

Talking about sandwiches in the recent MeFi thread made me hungry for a frankie -- a type of wrap from India. I improvised one for dinner today. Started with a whole wheat chapathi (traditionally a paratha would be used, you could also use a tortilla). Heated on a skillet with a dab of butter, then whisked an egg with salt and pepper and poured it onto one side of the heated chapathi, let it solidify a bit then quickly flipped it over and let the egg cook. Then repeated with other side. Then the filling: I used reheated paneer curry, chopped onions, chopped green chiles, a little white vinegar and chaat masala. Rolled the whole thing up and boom! Really hit the spot!

I had a big piece of quiche and some roasted broccoli and strangely packaged artichokes.

I had chicken Marsala with a side of lentils and steamed cauliflower. Yummy.

Peacheater, I too was inspired and recently tried bahn mi for the first time. Yours sounds yummy too!

Pizza burgers and salad. And a Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich. And a handful of peanut butter cereal. And some banana flavored tea.

I am apparently a 12-year old boy.

I made several gallons of a curry-ish type thing on Friday night, which turned out fairly divine for basically just dumping some lentils and spice in a pot and pulling the rest out of my arse. This morning I started a large new batch of basmati rice in my rice cooker. the mister just called and informed me the entire mess shall be warmed up ready to serve as soon as I get home :)

A plain toasted bagel with scallion cream cheese. I am still hungry. I may have some scrambled eggs.

Pesto, with both cashews and pine nuts, with gnocchi sauteed with olive oil, garlic, basil and swiss chard, and green beans steamed, served with a dollop of goat cheese.

Some Marlbrough Sav Blanc.

Some Marlborough Sav Blanc.

(had to fix that).

My aunt and uncle live literally in the middle of all the Marlborough vineyards. We always make a point of visiting when we are back in NZ.

Dinner is in process, but it will be grilled Cornish game hens and pumpkin sage risotto. Which I'm very much looking forward to.

Made honey mustard coleslaw, which is right up there among the most delicious ways to eat cabbage. To go with, made oven fries from a leftover potato, and made some homemade chicken nugget kinds of things by rolling chicken breast in bread crumbs and herbs and oven-baking that. Pretty solid weeknight meal.

I made chicken Korma from leftovers with almond rice.

It was good.

It's a Los Angeles winter, but I still like making soup like I live in New England, so ... a fresh pot of split pea and veggie soup, with the peas still a little al dente, just like I like 'em. (I don't go for that foggy soup where everything's a mush... yechhh.)

I love homemade chicken nugget things, Miko!

I had a meatloaf sandwich.
