What's for dinner part XXII?

Since we're past the 200 mark again, I figured I'd start the new thread.

Alas, my kitchen stays cold tonight as we're making our weekly trek to Sichuan heaven.

What's cooking, hounds?

      Just did that last night. Total pain, but man does it make cooking more enjoyable.

    2. Last night, my sister requested a frying lesson. LOL b/c it's one of my least favorite things to do, and I'm not really very skilled at it. But, we forged ahead and had for dinner fried black drum and fried flounder,the fried skinny onion rings Sis adores, braised cabbage, and a salad of lettuce, carrot, beets, cucumber, and feta. It was all very good, but what got the most raves was my tartar sauce.

      Tonight we are having a dish of duck canneloni I discovered in the freezer (woo hoo!), broccoli w/garlic butter and some ciabatta. And a very nice bottle of Malbec.

        Mmmm, canneloni.... and your fish & onion rings sound good ncw!

        How do you make your tartar sauce, btw?

        1. re: Phurstluv

          The duck canneloni is one of DH's faves; I can usually get at least one item scratched off the honey-do list w/the promise of canneloni!

          My version of Tartar Sauce is pickle-less b/c DH hates them. Here are approximate measures: 3/4 c. mayo, 1/4 c. sour cream, 1 tsp. dijon, zest of 1 lemon, 1 T. lemon juice, 1 T. chopped capers, 1 T. minced shallot, 2 tsp. chopped flat-leaf parsley, dash of Tabasco. (If I have chives, I usually add about 2 tsp., but I didn't have any this time.)

          Please tell us about that tartar sauce. It sounds like it would be good on salmon cakes I'm planning for this week :)

          1. re: ChristinaMason

            The recipe--it's a pretty standard version--is in the above post to Phurstluv.

        3. JungMann's mention a few days ago of Chicken Paprikash had me wanting it - so that's WFD tonight. Served over egg noodles with some peas on top. A wonderful, warming meal on this very rainy day/night. (But rain is *way* better than snow!)

            Sounds so good. I've had that on the "back burner" for a while. Now, with two reports, that's going to move to the front. Chicken on to the shopping list.

            1. re: LindaWhit

              Tasty! I just finished mine with buttered noodles with dill and scallions. On the side I braised cabbage with allspice and rice vinegar.

              Tonight is going to require some brainstorming to beat out that combination.

            2. In homage to Der Wienerschnitzel (and the "Der" will always be there for me), I'm slapping together my version Polish sandwiches tonight: kielbasa, kraut, aged Swiss cheese, spicy brown mustard and Best Maid dill pickles on pumpernickel bread. Ore Ida tots on the side.
