What did you cook today?
I am a newbie in the forum and just curious what everybody are cooking and or creating for the days meals. Please share your ideas here. Thanks!
Welcome to the forum HeadChef. My name is Janie. I have to admit I didnt cook anything Tuesday. I took the day off and got a couple of Little Caesars Pizzas.
Hi HeadChef and welcome to Spice Place! I'm Kevin.
My lunch today was a ham & pickle sandwich w/ sprouts on buttered pumpernickel bread, and a carrot & grapes.
Dinner will be a grilled ribeye, medium rare- a wedge salad w/ kippered salmon and blue cheese, and proll'y more grapes.
What about you?
I cooked an old family favorite "Chicken and Noodles"! My 5 yr. old grandson who hates meat and all vegetables loves this (Go figure!) I can not stand to see him exist on freakin' boxed mac-n-cheese so I drew from the old memory of favorites I used to make my own little ones when they were growing up. It worked and he & all the reast of the grands love this!
Stew 1 whole chicken, season well, adding diced onion, celery and all your favorite chicken seasonings (I use garlic powder, Greek Seasoning and salt & pepper)
Remove cooked chicken from broth and set aside on a plate to cool, leave broth in dutch oven or pressure cooker, turn heat to high.
Once broth returns to a boil add 1/4 cup frozen peas, and 1 1 Lb. box macaroni noodles and 1 Tbsp. dried parsley or 1/4 c. fresh chopped parsley taste and adjust flavors to your liking. Reduce heat to a low boil. De-bone and skin chicken, use a knife to dice the chicken meat & place diced chicken into the noodles, finish cooking until the noodles are done. Turn off heat and let the mixture sit a few moments allowing the noodles to absorb all broth. Stir well and serve. We most have bread & butter with this and occassionally a fresh salad.
You can add a small amount of chopped olives, sour cream, a splash of white wine, capers and any othe finely diced veggies (such as carrots). There are many variations. The kids like it pretty much the way described above. I like it all "fancied up" It just does not get much easier than this.
Welcome to SpicePlace.....by the way I have a whole tassel of folks living with us at the moment a grand total of 9 - 4 children and 5 adults (sometimes I wonder just how adult LOL) I am a certified crazy person!
Wow! Thanks for the warm welcome!
I actually cooked some asian spring rolls earlier, and I love it! =)
Steaks last night really hit the shot!
Tonight it's a roasted rosemary-orange hen (getting rid of what remains in a jar of orange marmalade) and spinach salad w/ raspberries, pine nuts and shaved parm.
Today, I'm making "Baked Tarragon Chicken", "Herb-Roasted Potatoes", plus "Green Beans and Red Onions".
It's Good Friday - fish day today.
Now i am cooking chicken.
