What's For Dinner? Part 68

Starting a new thread as the previous one has gone over the 250 range. No appetite for me, so I'll just pick at whatever interests me, if anything. But what's cooking in your house?

  1. I finally made the beef stroganoff from a fairly old epicurious recipe. I used beef tenderloin ( I had a roast from about 8 mos ago), creme fraiche, dijon mustard, shallots, beef broth and cognac. It was heavenly. It will be dinner again tonight also.

        Thanks... I could literally drink the sauce like tea (and then be one of the balloons in next year's Macy's Thankgiving parade)

        NV, do you have a link to that recipe, please? you've intrigued a few of us.

        1. re: mariacarmen

          mc, hopefully this will get you there. If not, it is one of the highest ranked ones and it was on the first page of recipes. http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo...

            I'd omit the dill and see if you like it before adding.

              Christina-so happens I did omit the dill, not a real fan. Great minds and all!

        2. re: nvcook

          That sounds fantastic. Haven't made beef stroganoff in years!

        3. Leftovers from my day of cooking...I had some French onion soup, a little red beans and rice and some turkey with wild rice casserole.

          1. I had leftover pork loin from Sunday's dinner so I threw it in a pot with some ketchup, apple cider vinegar, liquid smoke, red pepper flake and a myriad of other seasonings. An hour and a half later I had pulled pork for sandwiches. I also picked up a bag of coleslaw mix to go alongside. Dessert was a trip to Skinny Dip for strawberry and dark chocolate frozen yogurt. Do you guys have Skinny Dip by you?

              I kind of live in the middle of no where, so, no, I've never ever heard of "Skinny Dip".

              1. re: nvcook

                Ugh, you guys are missing out! It's a serve yourself frozen yogurt bar. Everyday they have different flavors (most non-fat, some no sugar added and some vegan/soy) along with about 50 different topping choices. I love it :) I usually go for the "Southern Strawberry" mixed with "Dark Chocolate" - on top I add fresh sliced strawberries and Grape Nuts.

                1. re: krisrishere

                  I wish there was a Skinny Dip near me! sounds great!

              2. re: krisrishere

                nope, but your pulled pork sounds wonderful. i've never tried liquid smoke, but now i'm gonna!

              3. Tonight was skillet browned chili dogs on homemade hot dog buns (dough left from the weekends ladies gig) topped with mustard, broccoli slaw and hot chow chow (canned over the summer with my garden zucchini & other veggies). To go with, oven french fries. Dessert will be a pumpkin whoopie pie I froze a couple of weeks ago as a test to see if they freeze well....I'll know shortly...

                1. plans to go out canceled. going to Bev & Mo for beer for a happy hour tomorrow night, then going home and will snack on smoked oysters, cream cheese and seeded crackers, maybe even sardines. and Top Chef Episode 7!! that will be WFD.

                    That was supposed to be my dinner! I have two tins each of oysters and sardines, cream cheese, two kinds of crackers, and some bagels. But the boyfriend decided he didn't feel well enough to travel, and I now I have to eat meals that require a fork.

                    I'm glad one of us got to enjoy it, at any rate. I'll have to wait until next week for my couch picnic.

                    1. re: onceadaylily

                      i got through one can of oysters and a small pack of cream cheese and felt sick afterwards, but it was delish while it was happening. and no silverware was utilized - a toothpick sufficed!

                      1. re: mariacarmen

                        I skipped the cream cheese, ate the oysters right out of the tin, and ate the sardines on crackers with a squiggle of mustard. But then I cracked into a box of triscuits, and that put me over the edge. It is so hard to stop eating the flavored triscuits.

                            Ha! That explains the garlicky overdose.
