What's cookin'? What's for dinner? Yada, yada

October 14th, 2007 at 01:58 pm

::all said in best Grandpa Jones voice:: "Well, we have three bean soup with green onions, garlic, and turkey ham cookin' on the front burner. We'll have 'em with homemade biscuits and butter! We also have boneless, skinless chicken breasts defrosting and those'll be baked in the oven, some with lemon pepper, some with Country Bob's sauce, and some with fajita seasonin'. They'll all be cut into strips and used for salads, stir fries and just eaten with fresh vegetables throughout the week!"

Denise and Bob the Cat reply with "Yummm yumm!"

Okay, so Grandpa Jones wouldn't have cooked the way I do but y'all get the picture. That's my basic cooking for today in preparation for the coming few days. Smile

    Sounds yummy! Also pretty similar to what I cooked this weekend: a white bean & sausage soup w/escarole, chicken breasts baked in a lemon-garlic marinade, brown rice and roasted brussels sprouts. I'm also getting ready to roast some cauliflower and then sprinkle it w/a little parmesian cheese with diner, and I'll steam a tilapia fillet for tonight's dinner as well (so I can save the rest of the chicken and soup for later in the week).

    I wish my calorie budget allowed for homemade biscuits with butter! I'm salivating just thinking about those!

  2. DeniseNTexas Says:

    Dido, your food sounds better than mine! I don't often eat biscuits since I'm diabetic and eat fairly low carb most of the time, but I do like them now and then. Oh, they're such a treat!

    I'll be have the cabbage-ajvar soup my husband made. It's a huge pot, so we'll be eating it for a while. We eat soups all year, but it is getting to be soup weather. This cabbage-ajvar soup comes to us from husband's heritage, and is about the only recipe handed down that is not fattening as all get out. It's all good peasant food, meant to fuel a farm family, specifically,a farm family which owns no horse or mule and must pull the plow themselves!

    I love peasant food. It's comfort food! But..what is ajvar? Off to Google it.. lol

    A ha!

    "['ajvar]) is a relish made principally from red bell peppers, with eggplant, garlic and chili pepper. It is predominantly popular in the Balkans, chiefly in former Yugoslav republics. Depending on capsaicin content in bell peppers and the amount of added chili peppers, it can be sweet, piquant (the most common), or very hot.

    Ajvar can be consumed as a bread spread, an addition in sandwiches, a condiment (often used with grilled or roasted meat), or a salad."

    It sounds like something I'd like!

    I too am cooking for the masses today. Getting very impatient for my kettle of beans to be "cooked", so I can assemble the chili to simmer for tomorrow. Darned beans are still in the soft rock stage. Smile

    I love ajvar, and its cousin lutenica (ajvar-like but with eggplant). I buy them jarred at the supermarket. I introduced it to my trainer at the gym because 1 tbsp is about 15 calories. If you like crunchy/creamy things, its a great calorie saver over butter, margarine, or peanut butter.

    Good to know someone else watched Hee Haw! during her formative years.

  7. DeniseNTexas Says:

    Contrary1, may your beans miraculously cook in a jiffy. Wink
    Baselle, I'll have to try ajvar and lutenica someday. I do like to try new foods now and then. Oh yeah, Hee Haw was a staple of my childhood! I remember it all very well. Almost too well. Wink

    Sounds delicious! What time is dinner??? =) I made a frozen chicken dish (that was great) from Sams. But at least we didn't eat out on a Sunday. YAY.

  9. DeniseNTexas Says:

    Lattelal, I just put it all away but will drag it back out if you can get here in two hours. Wink It was very good. I had a chicken breast seasoned with Cook's Choice Brisket seasoning and a small bowl of the bean soup. I used kidney beans, great northern beans, and black beans in it and it was excellent! There's enough of it all for me to eat it three to four more times this week. Okay, I might get bored with it but hey, I'll turn it into something else so it isn't so boring. lol

    What chicken dish from Sam's did you have?
