These threads are racing by with over 300 posts in three days!

For those of you who are not in a cold climate, you're very, very lucky! Go on, make us jealous. For the rest of us, no whining. It is what it is, and what it is is very cold! What keeps you warm in this weather?

  1. I don't know about dinner, but I made a Pulled Pork Chili Quesadilla for lunch today. It was my first try at this concoction and it was a great success.

      Sounds tasty. Maybe reprise for dinner.

    2. I dunno - I have leftovers in the fridge - but I'm hearing the siren call of my favorite sushi place! ;)

      hmmm... we'll see what the hubs says when the time comes. They are pretty tasty leftovers.

      1. Chicken Marsala here with rice and steamed green beans.

          I see marsala is the dish making the rounds this week! :)

            Love, love, love Chicken Marsala. It's gotta be back on my to make list soon. Kudos to you.

          2. Tonight will be this Fuchsia Dunlop recipe for pickled green beans with ground pork: I'm subbing ground turkey because that's all the store had. I'd like to serve it with cauliflower rice just for a little variety (been ODing on jasmine rice since introducing it into my diet), but unless I make it to the store again before dinner, starch it is.

            We're heading to Costco tonight, so it's entirely possible that these plans will get waylaid by an impulse purchase.

              I just tried cauliflower rice for the first time last week and really liked it!! Even cauliflower averse hubby ate it without complaint.

                Sweet! I didn't make it to the store, so it was jasmine here tonight. The dish was pretty good, but a little..hmm...same-ish. I like a bit more contrast---I think this would be really good as part of a bigger meal of more varied dishes. I added a tsp. or two of hot bean paste to give it a little more kick.

            2. I had planned to make lentil soup tonight (and it's all that I have the makings for at this point), but I feel like something else. Maybe something creamy and potato-y (but my husband frowns upon this kind of cooking for obvious health-related reasons).

                I've got it - I'm going to make roasted cauliflower soup!
