What's for Dinner #328 - The It's Fall Edition!

Yesterday was spent with my dad. His cancer is spreading quickly and things don't look that good. So we'll spend as much time with him as we can. He wanted Chinese so that's what we did!

Tonight will be B/S chicken breasts, mashed potatoes, mixed petite veggies and chicken gravy. We were going to have that last night, but then we got Dad's call. Was going to do it on the grill, but here in the NW, it's supposed to be raining by dinner time :-(

Tomorrow night will be cod filets topped with an orange citrus sauce and sliced veggies all wrapped in foil packets and baked. To go with will be steamed jasmine rice.

Home Cooking Dish of the Month (October 2014) Nominations

SQUASH SIDE DISH which could be a soup or a filled squash or something else including pumpkin. There are so many types of squash. I would love to hear what people do with different types of squash.

And thanks SS for stepping up. We'll miss LN, though, but I'm sure you will do a fantastic job.

OMG - now you have me craving risotto again. Dog gone, you! Asparagus is getting weary here. But boy, that sounds sooooo good.

Sounds like that flea market find is definitely a winner for both of you. Also a great weekend for food. And of course, what would the evening be like without wine????? Glad you had a great one.

Last night was just beautiful out. So we grilled up a beautiful T-Bone. It was just a little fella (well, maybe not so much - It filled a large dinner plate) and we shared it. To go with, on the side burner were sauteed Mushrooms in butter, Marsala and a little Cabernet. We also had little ramekins of Shrimp Salad. Cabernet in the glasses and candlelight on the table on the deck. Life doesn't get better than that!

OK - I just googled a dark 'n' stormy. Sounds good but I can't have anything carbonated (alas - that lets out beer, champagne and sodas). Bummer. Once in a while I will try it, but I pay dearly afterwards. :(

I've never had Grog, but is it similar to Glögi? Had that in Helsinki at Christmas time a few years ago (apparently a tradition) and it was so good.

And I think his musical pick is "Popeye the sailor man". Arrh!

I'm thinking that was my recipe. I've posted it a couple of times and it's so darn good. Glad to hear you enjoyed it.

Moved from previous thread. :)

Well, we are getting rain today. Its been a while and the plants and lawns can sure use it as well as all the wild fires in the area. Was going to grill outside tonight, but may have to change those plans. We'll see how the day plays out.

Dinner will be sauteed (or grilled) chicken breasts, roasted (or grilled) fresh asparagus (looks like about the last of the season). To go with will be a side of linguine and a mushroom Dijon cream sauce. Oh, and a nice white wine will accompany the dinner.

What's for Dinner #326 - The Fall Pursuits Edition [September 18, 2014]

Last night was stuffed peppers. I posted in the Home Cooking Dish of the Month thread here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/9877...

They turned out really excellent and I did them on the grill. I also posted pic's.

STUFFED VEGETABLES! Home Cooking Dish of the Month (September 2014)

Last night was Stuffed Peppers. Did them in a disposable pan on the grill. Turned out fantastic. 1/2 lb. ground beef, 1/2 white onion, diced. 1 cup cooked white rice, 1 can of diced tomatoes with green pepper and onion, 1 small can tomato sauce, and a leftover ear of grilled corn on the cob. Topped with extra sharp cheddar cheese and grilled covered with foil for 1/2 hour at about 400. I used one green and one red bell pepper, cut in half. Perfect for the two of us.

I'm trying to get DH to like creamed spinach. Can you share your recipe? I know he ate it once that my mom made (maybe 30 years ago), and he did like it, but still says he won't eat it. I'd like to try it on him again without him saying AAAAGGGGGHHHHHH. And knowing you - he would eat your recipe. I don't have my moms (sadly - she has passed) so I'm hopeful!

Oh - and the rest of your evening sounds absolutely delightful! I'm jealous of Deb!

That looks awesome, too! I didn't think we would like the spice as much as we did. I'm all in for that! TYSM.

I love pasta a la vodka. It's so good. Thanks or the reminder that I need to make it soon. Sounds like a wonderful dinner.

What's for Dinner #326 - The Fall Pursuits Edition [September 18, 2014]

OK, that's it. Send me your address and I'm moving near you! (Although DH might have something to say about that - ya know - job and all). That looks so delish.

Last night was grilled salmon with a recipe we saw on "The Kitchen" by Katie Lee. Made a "topping" of dark brown sugar, chile powder, salt and pepper. Mixed well and put on top of salmon. Then grilled (her recipe said baked, but heck, why not grill?). Also grilled corn on the cob, and a potato salad with baby yukon gold potatoes, diced eggs, red onion, chopped dill pickles, a little mayo and some dijon mustard. Needless to say, dinner was fantastic.

Oh, my heavens, those look fantastic. GOT..TO..TRY..THOSE. Can I have your recipe, please?

Well, I'm just plain sad with this news. You have done such a fantastic job and you will be sorely missed. I hope you are not leaving us, as in chowhound however. I know being a mod. of this type can be challenging (I've contributed my share :-) ). Just leave with the knowledge that you are AMAZING.

STUFFED VEGETABLES! Home Cooking Dish of the Month (September 2014)

You guys are killing me here with your stuffed mushrooms. I love "shrooms" any way, any shape, any form! I know I'm old, but the drool on the side of my mouth is for the dish, not my own inability to control myself.

Last night I grilled a teriyaki pork tenderloin. To go with was some Israeli Couscous with sharp cheddar cheese and pimento, and a side of mixed veggies (peas, carrots, green beans and corn). To go with was a nice Sauvignon Blanc. All eaten by candle light on the deck. Beautiful evening!

Why oh why did you not use my host(ess) gift at your dinner party?

I think she goes to "The Party Place" and finds whatever is on sale and uses her "stash" of goodies to gift. Next time it could be straws (because you serve guests "sloppy" drinks). Just a thought. :-)

Red wine with America beef stew .

As I said downthread, I don't use wine in my stew, just beef stock. But I do add a little season salt, S&P, allspice, clove (which makes the house smell wonderful), garlic, bay leaf and depending on the acidity a little brown sugar. Sometimes I add a small can of tomato sauce and at the appropriate time, I add carrots, celery, onion, green beans, diced potatoes, frozen corn and frozen peas. Just depends on what I have on hand. If need be, I might thicken with a little slurry.

Love carbonara. Unfortunately nobody close carries good pancetta and we don't have a good "butcher" near us. So I am jealous.

It must be a mac & cheese kind of night! Guess if I would have thought of it, I could have defrosted some ham slices instead of the hamburger. House white here, and something from the DVR since I don't watch FB! If DH decides to watch, he has his "man cave" for that. Now if it was a good NASCAR race, I'd watch that!
