What's for Dinner #359 - the April Showers Edition [through April 15, 2015]

After a very long work week, the hubs and I rewarded ourselves with a good ol' fashioned splurge on Friday night...not at a restaurant; at Home Depot. They had the Weber grill we've been looking for at a decent price, so we said "f it" and bought it. Yesterday it was assembled and today it's ready for its baptism. In the fridge I have a nice looking pork tenderloin that I have NO IDEA what I want to do with it. Maybe a miso glaze? Or a standard brown sugar, soy marinade? I don't know...it will come to me eventually! Sides will be determined once I figure out what to do with the pork.

Ketchup on Eggs? Not in my House!...Yours?

Growing up in NH/MA area, I never heard of it. When my family moved down to CT, we became friends with a ton of NY/NJ transplants and they ALL put ketchup on eggs. I just figured it was something only they did! I vividly remember visiting family friends in Atlantic City when I was young...the adults went out to the casinos and the kids stayed home. The babysitter made us scrambled eggs with hot dogs and ketchup for dinner and I refused to eat it. All of the other children cheered because it was their favorite. That always stuck with me...bleh!

I don't believe that I've ever seen a turkey breast tenderloin in the store!

What's for Dinner #358 - The Easter/Passover Edition! [through April 7, 2015]

Easter weekend was extremely busy with an enormous amount of the usual homeowner's chores. Luckily we capped our weekend off with a beautiful Easter meal - rosemary and garlic grilled lamb chops, spring pea risotto with watercress, roasted asparagus and a healthy drizzle of balsamic reduction. I was skeptical about dessert while I was making it but MAN OH MAN was it delicious. It's called Blueberry Cheesecake Pie and it's basically a mix between a cheesecake and blueberry pie...very light and refreshing.

Tonight we'll do it all over again with the leftovers. Is it acceptable to forego a lamb chop for a second slice of pie?

What's For Dinner #357 - the Out Like A Lamb Edition [Through April 2, 2015]

Husband went out last night with his old boss to one of our favorite Southern comfort food restaurants. While he enjoyed their fried chicken, I made myself a bowl of popcorn with finely shredded manchego dusted on top. It was SO good. I snuggled on the couch with the pup and watched The Americans - which is really entertaining.

Thursday dinner is typically "fend for yourself". I have some leftover chicken in the fridge that could be made into a chicken salad sandwich, salad or maybe a quesadilla. My stomach will lead the way when it's time.

Bread for Easter Dinner

Thank you for writing this thread - it reminded me of a bread that I used to make years ago and I totally forgot about it!

My favorite pizza shop in Connecticut used to make a raisin bread that they would only serve around Easter. I managed to recreate it, and it is delicious. It's crusty on the outside and tender/sweet in the middle. I like to serve it barely warm or room temp with lots of good butter. Here's the link to it:

I literally had to wipe the corners of my mouth because of that mac and cheese picture.

Dinner last night was inspired by nothingswrong - Greek marinated split breast chicken and roasted eggplant with mint and feta. It was delicious!

Since I am currently sans dining room table (probably until this weekend), meal planning has been a challenge. We have to eat our dinners in the living room hovering over the coffee table. Tonight, another chowhound inspired meal - NACHOS! Linda, I think you were talking about them last week :) Mine will be more of a salad with a hint of chips and easy to eat given our situation lol

I actually used this recipe very loosely. I didn't need as much as the recipe made, so I just eyeballed it!

I had not heard about the vitamin c! Do you take a pill or just drink some o.j.?

Easter Menus - 2015

I think I have finally decided on a menu:

Rosemary and garlic grilled lamb chops with port reduction
Spring pea risotto with watercress
Roasted asparagus
Dessert - TBD

This will be something easy and delicious to throw together I think!

What's for Dinner #356 - The Tail End of March Edition! [through March 30, 2015]

I was newly "diagnosed" with extremely low iron this week so in addition to ironpills, I'm trying to include more iron-rich foods as well. I read that clams were a good source, so I went and picked up a 100 count bag of locally harvested littenecks yesterday. That got me thinking, so i decided on an impromptu tapas date night.

To start, manchego cheese, mixed olives, Serrano ham and pan con tomate. As the main, steamed clams with Chorizo, steamed artichoke and roasted potato wedges with a to die for spicy paprika aioli. Seriously, I would eat a brick if it was dipped in that. On the tube, the movie Birdman which was a little bizarre, but good.

Tonight simple is best. Burgers and dogs on the grill. Burgers will be topped with American cheese, L, T and O. Hot dogs have spicy mustard and kraut. Baked beans may appear as well. Dessert is a small (maybe) square of salted caramel brownie that's currently in the oven.

WOW! You pull out all the stops! :) The lamb meatballs sound great. I'm leaning more towards lamb for dinner.

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