What's for Dinner #356 - The Tail End of March Edition!

All of that looks incredible. Did you just marinate the chicken in lemon, oil, garlic and oregano and then bake?

Easter Menus - 2015

What's on everyone's Easter menu this year? Is it too soon to start thinking about it? lol

I'm clueless as to what to have this year, so I'm hoping for some Chowhound inspiration. Last year was Italian Easter Pie, the year before that was a traditional ham dinner, and the year before that were stuffed veal chops.

Thanks Deb! Sounds similar to my crab dip recipe. Do you serve room temp or heat it in the oven?

Tonight's dinner is rather beige and porky. Pork chops on the grill with a spice mixture of salt, pepper, brown sugar and hot paprika. Cabbage sauteed with a touch of bacon until the edges turn golden.

Dessert will be a handful of dark chocolate chips and strawberries.

What a good eater you have! Reminds me of my 5 year old niece. Her favorite foods right now are chicken feet and tripe!

This sounds great. I have some white miso that I need to use up. How long does it last in the fridge BTW? Any ideas?

The cream cheese interests me. I'm assuming you put it on before baking?

What's your method for cauliflower rice? I made stir fried rice with it once and it tasted OK...but still really cauliflower-y. Is there any way to get rid of that? lol

Well, Mom left this morning after a lovely visit. I took her sightseeing the past few days: Colonial Williamsburg, Yorktown battlefield, a boat cruise around Norfolk Naval Station and an obligatory trip to the Virginia Beach oceanfront. Also on the agenda for thelast 4 days: eating. Crabcakes, oysters, shrimp and hominy grits, bbq. ..

Hubby and I are both fairly sick of eating so I made a salad for dinner. London broil was marinated in soy, honey, oil, garlic, rosemary and a glug of red wine. That was grilled and placed atop a bed of greens, crumbled blue cheese and the usual salad fixin's.On top of that...a luscious poached egg. Dessert will the last slice of ATK's key lime pie!

I didn't know anyone had heard of them outside of the Boston area! HA! I spent quite a few years outside of Boston and you could walk into any good Italian deli and order one. Once I moved to Connecticut, they became a little more challenging to find..but not impossible. Here in Norfolk, VA (pronounced Naw-fuck), people just look at me like I have 3 heads.

I'm trying an ATK no-bake recipe for the first time. I've always made a recipe from cooking light that's actually pretty damn good for being low-fat. I'm terrible...I always get bored with recipes and try something new which doesn't always turn out well lol

tasteless red chile sauce @$##$X

I can't answer your chile procurement question, but I have a question. Did you try adding more salt to the sauce? Lack of salt can make most dishes tasteless.

80 degrees and beautiful here. Tonight's dinner is simple - grilled pork chops with an herb compound butter. Probably a salad with a honey balsamic vinaigrette on the side. I might even throw some broccoli in a foil pack on the grill as well.

Also tonight, a key lime pie will be made and chilled in the fridge and a touch of cleaning. My mother is flying in from CT tomorrow and bringing the cooler weather with her! Lots of fun activities planned...and of course good food.

Thanks for the love guys. I'm at about 70% today. The doc said that I should not take anything with an expectorant in it again...my nervous system just cannot handle it. One more good night of sleep and (besides my barking) I should be good to go! :)

So sorry to hear that. Sending good thoughts and prayers your way.

I used to live on pepper and egg sandwiches when I lived in New England! No one in the South has ever heard of one.

I get an "F" for today. I unknowingly picked up the wrong cough syrup at the store and took it last night. The result; delirium, dizziness and dazed all because of one active ingredient. I took it at 7 last night and it is still (4:44pm) not out of my system.

No delicious reuben for me tonight. I have a hot date with a bed.

While I'm thinking about it, the hubs asked if I could make corned beef hash with the leftovers. I think I said yes...does anyone have a recipe they would care to share?

good, quick, simple recipes to use a jar of mayo

Fresh Dill Dip - probably the best dip evah (in my opinion).

equal parts mayo and sour cream
3 tbsp pickle juice
2 tbsp freshly minced dill
1 tsp garlic powder.

Stir all together. Serve with vegetables, bread, or on a brick. :)

Best BAKED chicken wings recipe?

For buffalo wings, I always used the Alton Brown method/recipe.

My favorite of all-time, are my oyster sauce chicken wings:

3lbs wings
1 cup oyster sauce
5 cloves garlic, minced
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp black pepper

Marinate at least 3 hours, but overnight is best. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 350, turning once until brown, crispy and cooked through. Best served with sticky rice!

Well I think (hope) this cold I have is past it's peak. Just a terribly dry cough left. Yesterday, in honor of Pi(e) day and to help with my throat, I made a Coffee Toffee Mud Pie. That hit the spot. Today I reverse braised a corned beef that I had soaking in water for 2 days. I've been making it this way since fourunder's thread a few years ago. Alongside, the usual suspects simmered in the braising liquid of guiness and beef stock, homemade Irish soda bread and lots of horseradish. Dessert is more pie and dinner tomorrow are Reuben's of course!

I just sent a text to the hubby to pick up a huge container of pho on his way home. That cures (most) everything!
