I thought I was satisfied with my bag of popcorn but after reading all these delicious menu's I might take out a piece of fish from the freezer. The only thing is I like it (steelhead) cooked on the grill (marinate in olive oil, soy sauce and rosemary) but since it's about -2 degrees guess I won't be cooking on the back porch tonight.
Probably will be a salad with some left over chicken.

I have a looovely pork roast in the oven (think Julia child voice, with slivers of garlic pricked in the sides, stuffed with pruunes, apricots and dates, rubbed with pepper and slurry of butter, sprinkled with thyme and with a sauce of red wine, orange juice and molasses poured over the top and looooovely wild and brown rice mix with chicken stock, apples and almond slivers aboil, and fresh, green, waiting-to-be-steamed broc. Mmmmmmmm!

But, ya know, Terrytunes, my fave is when there's no one home but me, and I can pop corn (none of the bag stuff anymore - too many chemicals and tooooo fattening), with real butter and the BEST beer. What a meal! Now that's a suppah (as they say here in Maine).

That sounds delicious and kinda like what we had. I am just leaving work now, hoping that my wife has figured dinner out and has something good going, but she works hard too and chances are I will be the one who is home first looking at the recipes.....

Sure enough....I'm the cook. Think quick. Bag of frozen shrimp out, cut up some carrots, broc, and beans. Sir Fry. Serve over brown rice with spicy sauce.

This thread, combined with the extremely cold weather, prompted me to make some homemade chicken/vegetable/noodle soup. Made the stock last night, finished the soup tonight. Served it with english muffins, toasted with butter and parmesean. Nothing could be better on a cold night - so good...

Thanks to apple for the inspiration!

I loooove homemade chicken soup and so does my family - a number one meal. I always throw those gizzards, hearts, livers and necks in the freezer, along with the carcasses of the chicks and turks I've cooked. When there's an accumulation, I throw them all in a huge pot and let them cook a couple hours. Picking the meat off the bone is kind of long and tedious, but the end result if so wonderful. I'm probably the only person outside of third world countries who still does that. My mother left her mark of old-world frugality on me, I guess.

Also -

For a quick, delicious dinner - Costco sells something called Margaritaville jerk shrimp (or something like that...) It is so good - just open the package, heat it up, and serve over spaghetti. Easy as pie with a homemade taste. It's a good thing to keep in the freezer.

seems like we have chicken noodle soup every week excepting summer.

Excellent variation: To a cooked chicken add 1 tbsp or more fresh ginger, a clove or two of garlic then noodles. When the noodles are almost cooked add a small head of bok choy, at least 1/2 lb of mushrooms, 6 green onions, 1/2 cup or more of chopped cilantro and sesame oil- up to 2 tbsp. I serve it ala-Thai with hot peppers, and lime wedges.

tonite we had lamb kabobs, hummus, tabouli, tsatsiki sauce with pita bread and rice and raw rutabaga ( very thinly sliced into squares and triangles so the kids could play with their food) which went over quite well to my surprise. By the time I finished cooking I was in a horrible mood because I didn't get all my practicing in... but-oh well.

tonite - in honor of MLK we're having ham, dirty rice, greens and cornbread. My husband thinks I'm nuts, but we all love greens.

For tonight, I am marinating some flank steak in red wine, onions, garlic and a bit of thyme, parlsey, clove, salt and pepper. Marinates all day and then I broil it hot and fast.

Comfort food for a blustery, cold evening: chili, simple green salad and corn muffins. Off to the store shortly to get some cheddar to grate and sprinkle on top of the chili.

Ribs, collard greens, rice, all washed down with plenty o' St. Ides Malt Liquor. (Actually, having a glass as we speak--smoooooth.)

After dinner we all sit down as a family and watch the movie "Shaft," and I explain the finer points of '70s black culture to my children.

Pizza (Pesto and veggies). And looking at the clock, I'd better logoff and get cooking !!

I'm a vegetarian. Have been for 20 years now. The new twist is now I'm low-carbing it (yes, it's possible -- I do eat seafood, though). Tonight, we're having crustless crab quiche. It's a fun challenge (to me, at least, a real foodie), to find good, low-carb meals. Of course, the kids just want their mac-and-cheese.

As for Vegetarian Times, even when I wasn't (further) restricting my diet, I never found anything close to being a "keeper." I'm an epicurious.com girl all the way!

Had a request for "soft" food. The oldest got new braces and is sore, the middle has a sore throat so....

Potato cheese soup from Laurel's Kitchen with salad.

Ooo...maybe we need a favorite cookbook thread...

Anytime Jodi. I have a couple of dogs that would look great in one of your paintings. The salmon was very good (if I do say so myself--as the cook) and the wine turned out to be Pinot Grigio -- Woodbridge. Went well.

Maybe if we serve up enough good food, everyone will stop fighting and get on with eating and drinking.
