What's For Dinner? Part XXXIX

As we've hit 200 on the previous thread, I've taken the liberty of starting a new thread about what's for dinner in your house!

Can't wait to see what's cookin', good lookin'! :-)

  1. And as for MY dinner tonight? Going to make a chicken panino tonight - leftover thin-sliced roasted chicken, roasted red peppers, and some lavender and honey goat cheese I got at the farmer's market on Saturday all grilled on the grill pan. I'll be making two if it's good - one for lunch tomorrow.

    Blue corn tortilla chips alongside, and chocolate ice cream should I want dessert during Hell's Kitchen. :-)

    ETA: Forget HK for tonight - the All-Star game is on Fox. Oh well. Guess I'm reading while enjoying my chocolate ice cream. :-)

      YUM! Let us know how that is, okay? I love lavender (almost spelled that 'lovender', haha!) and honey with cheese. That sounds so good.

      1. re: Jadore

        I'm in the "lovender" camp as well :::grin::: so I'm REALLY hoping I like it. I still can't believe I haven't cracked the container to take a crackerful to see how it is yet. :-)

          Update on the honey lavender (fromage blanc) goat cheese - first off, it's from Nettle Meadow

          The texture is like highly whipped cream cheese - very light and fluffy. The taste is barely tangy, ever-so-lightly sweet from the honey, and just a hint of floral from the lavender - but the lavender is NOT overpowering whatsoever. You barely know it's there. This cheese would be lovely atop a toasted baguette slice with a thin slice of semi-spicy chorizo or crumbled cooked sausage on top to counteract the slight sweetness.

            Yum, boy that sounds nice. I may have to pick some up for my party.

        2. re: LindaWhit

          LW--does that sound good!
          Q for you: you have mentioned a TJ product you really like a few times, a side dish--of rice and grains? pilaf? I can't remember exactly, but I currently have access to TJ's and plan to do a little shopping. If you know what I'm trying to remember, would you be so kind as to tell me so it can be what's for (my) dinner sometime soon. Thank you.

          EDIT: never mind, LW, I just found it in one of your posts in an earlier thread--Harvest Grain Blend.

          1. re: nomadchowwoman

            That's it, ncw. I've got it on my next TJ's shopping list. :-)

        3. Yum, LindaWhit. We got both of our CSAs today (fruit/veg and fish, which I guess is CSF?). So, we grilled our huge pollock fillet over fronds of fennel and topped it with pesto, alongside some corn grilled in the husk. Beet greens sauteed and finished with some balsamic on the side. Daughter is clamoring for Klondike bars for dessert, and we'll probably give in!

            My Fresh Catch (CSF) codfish is waiting to be poached, boned, and skinned tonight - in this July steambath in Boston we're looking forward to cold poached fish with aioli, a bowl of sliced peppers and tomatoes tossed with olive oil, lemon, and sliced basil, and a stroll to Rancatore's for coconut ice cream!

            1. I made a corn chowder, thickened with cornmeal and garnished with fresh chives. It is homey comfort food -- nothing fancy but it'll do the trick tonight!


              1. I bought a package of tostada shells (rounds) and am on a tostada kick, tonight it was shrimp, tomorrow chicken. This weekend I am thinking about ceviche and maybe chliaquiles for breakfast.

                1. Tonight I cooked a london broil drizzled with homemade BBQ sauce; pan braised squash & onions, cucumber salad & corn on the cob to go with. Dessert later will be Nutella on a spoon :)
