What's for dinner?

Post by claypipe » Fri Nov 02, 2007 3:14 pm

Beef stew, just now added the carrots. Perfect meal for a 45 degree fall evening.

A 45-degree fall? Sounds about half as painful as a 90-degree fall.

But beef stew does sound delicious. Mmm. And cooking does seem more appealing (and indoors much homier) on crisp, fall evenings.

Dinner? who knows. Left overs probably.

I myself prefer the 11.25 degree falls myself. No idea about dinner, am hungry though. No lunch today, too busy making pipes.

I'd be glad to trade you some dinner for one of your pipes. :)

I think the 3 of you will be going to bed without dinner.

We had a nice dinner of pot roast, mashed potatos and seasoned green beans at our local "upscale" eatery, Cafe 35. Upscale in this case means the prices are about 15% higher than everywhere else.
Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:6,7 ESV

I think I'm going to make pasta with salami and spinach in a very spicy red sauce tonight.

Sure, it's really easy, and it only takes one pot, so clean up is fast. I just kind of make it up as I go, so the quantities are far from exact, sorry. Fortunately, most of the ingredients in this are easy to smell so you can just add until it smells good.

Cook up some pasta (I prefer bow tie with this dish), slice some good German salami, and tear up some fresh spinach. Drain the pasta and leave it in the colander, and pour a bit of red wine into the hot pot followed by the salami and spinach and let it sizzle for a couple of seconds. Then pour in some ready-made marinara sauce from the grocery store and stir it up. You might need to add some red wine at this point if the salami and spinach soaked too much up. Add spices to taste (any mixed Italian spice will do) and many heavy splashes of Tabasco, stirring all the while. Then pour the pasta back in and stir. Just before dishing it out, stir in some basil (fresh is great if you have the time to chop it). Voilá! Toasted garlic bread is a nice addition which you can easily make by pouring a bit of olive oil onto some bread then sprinkling garlic salt over, then put it face-down in a pan until it browns. This dish is also a good cadidate for pasta bake; to do so scoop it into a oven pan and grate cheese over the top until covered (I like to use Edam).

And if you like beer, you could not choose a better companion for this spread than Stella Artois.

Tonight I grilled up some steak kebabs with onion wedges. I also whipped up some hummus. Served with jasmine rice, and warmed flat bread.

Mmmmm.

I didn't know before hand, but it was spiced lamb from PF Changs.

After a few years of tasty trials (and a couple not-so-tasty,) my wife has finally perfected her pizza dough. So tonight it will be pizza with hand-grated mozzarella, last year's canned tomato sauce (one year on the shelf seems to be the perfect timing), fresh garlic, sliced jalapenos, dried herbs from the garden, some pepperoni, and topped with another (but finer) layer of hand-grated mozzarella. Baked on a stone with cornmeal and olive oil. A side of applesauce and a glass of red ale will complete the meal.

Man, am I hungry.
