  • What's ON THE MENU TONIGHT?

    Thought I would start a general thread for people to post about some food/meals they've had or are planning to have on any given day. Post about what you've made, or perhaps some take-out or delivery you enjoyed or a meal elsewhere.
    ------------

    Since it's a gorgeous day and we all love BBQ, I'm going to make some nice bone-in Pork Chops and baked Potatoes on the Q with some steamed Broccoli as a veg. Hopefully it'll still be warm enough so we can eat outside, but that may be asking for too much this time of year. Thinking of finishing that off with some Praline 'n Cream Ice Cream and a movie.

    A simple easy to make meal when feeling really lazy. I love salmon but too often feel I get into a rut on how to make and this is a good alternative to break up the boredom.

    Honey Mustard Glazed Salmon

    Ingredients:

    4 Tbsp Honey mustard dressing
    4-6 oz Salmon filets
    2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
    1 Tsp lemon zest finely grated
    Salt and pepper to taste

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a shallow baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Combine lemon juice, honey mustard dressing and lemon zest, stir together and add to baking dish. Season both sides of the fish with salt and pepper and place in baking dish. Flip salmon to coat in glaze. Recipe calls for baking for 10 or so minutes or until fish is tender though I prefer broiling.

      1 lb Cooked shrimp

      4 Ciabatta rolls, halved
      16 fresh basil leaves

          Chicken Thighs coated with Panko & Italian seasonings breadcrumbs, seasoning salt, freshly ground black pepper and Garlic salt.
          Potato wedges coated with the same seasonings and a light sprinkle of Canola Oil. I'll roast those on a baking sheet.
          A little corn on the side.

          We always eat a little later on Fridays, so this will go into the oven in about an hour.

            Wonton soup. About as bland as can get as all my stomach can take.

                Rather than typing everything out I thought I'd give you the recipe via a link from which I made my Irish Pork Stew. I omitted the celery as I'm not a fan and also didn't have any on hand, but it does have a particular flavour, so next time I'll add about half of what was shown. I also added some Red Pepper Flakes for a little heat.

                http://allrecipes.com/recipe/236988/...ish-pork-stew/

                I think I'll add a little Turnip next time and perhaps some fresh Green Beans as well.

                  With my Mom visiting for a few months and her love of/for Italian food, I thought she'd appreciate a nice Lasagna. Made the meat sauce for it yesterday, so all I had to do today was prepare the spinach/cheese mixture, boil the pasta and assemble it. I use an 11"x15" glass Pyrex dish otherwise the 3lbs of meat (beef/pork/veal), 2 lbs of cheese (ricotta/mozzarella/parmesan) and 1 lb of pasta wouldn't fit.

                  It'll go into a 375°F oven for 45 minutes, covered with aluminum foil, and then 5-10 minutes under the broiler to give it some colour.

                  Caesar Salad, a fresh crusty loaf and a bottle (or 2) of red wine are at the ready as well!

                    I can't look at food. We went to Fogo de Chao last night with a couple of other couples and put ourselves in a food coma! We were seated at 7 PM and left at 10 PM.

                    I love churrascarias, fogo de chao is great they're out in cali too. at least dinner didn't begin at 10 Pm like some parts of So America.

                  Spring weather was really encouraging, but Summer has been huge disappointment here...just East of the Rockies. Cold and rain, rain, rain more often than not, so not much BBQ time. It seems we have a nice little break happening, so the Q will get some action while the opportunity strikes.

                  Took out 3 Tenderloin steaks from a Primal I bought at Costco a while back and they're getting cozy with some Montreal Steak Spice. Two/three minutes per side on high and they'll be perfectly rare. I'll be making extra Russet Baked potatoes, which I'll use for a fry-up tomorrow. Steamed fresh Green Beans will be tossed into a mushroom/onion/garlic sauteed melange of goodness. For dessert I have strawberries, blackberries & raspberries with plain Greek Yogurt.

                      My summer salad. I've been eating them about 4 days a week for the past few weeks. They are fast, delicious, filling (but not too), light and healthy.

                      Chicken breast diced (Costco or other rotisserie)

                        Friday night dinner is usually take-out/order-in for us, but that'll have to wait until tomorrow or next week as I found some nice pork chops at the market that I'm salivating to dig my teeth into.

                        Bone-in centre-cut pork loin chops.
                        Leftover baked potatoes that I'll skin, cube and fry up with some seasoning salt, ground black pepper and garlic powder.
                        Pan-fried Apple slices in butter with a little nutmeg.
                        Steamed baby carrots.

                        I'll coat the Pork Chops with some Dutch Grain Mustard and then some breadcrumbs, which will be baked in the oven at 350°F for 45 minutes (maybe less).

                          Nothing to brag about for dinner tonight, but tomorrow is Mexican Saturday and it will be chicken tostadas made from scratch which includes my pico de gallo and of course my Margaritas.
