What Are You Cooking Today?

FoodWacky Oct 30, 2013 09:29 AM

It's a cool, cloudy day here in lovely Monrovia, CA, and I've got a big pot of vegetable soup simmering away for tonight's meal. We'll also be having some tasty barbecued chicken, homemade whole wheat and honey bread and a big green salad!

What are you cooking today?!

    I plan to make saag tonight using some fresh spinach I picked up at the farmer's market last weekend. This is one of my favorite methods of cooking spinach and other greens.

    To make saag, puree a little GOG paste (ginger-garlic-onion) with tomato, spices (cumin, coriander, a little turmeric), jalapeno, and salt/pepper. Heat olive oil in a skillet and add the puree until it starts to become dry and the oil separates from the sauce. Throw in finely chopped spinach and cook on low until wilted.

    This served with a little feta and naan or pita bread is seriously good and super easy to make.

      Chicken curry with sliced plantains, roasted cashews, golden raisins, ginger & spicy red peppers.

      Lunch was leftover spinach cannelloni + bread with whole garlic cloves baked in : )

        We had stuffed pork chops with cornbread stuffing (just the bagged Pepperidge Farm to make it quickly) and it was so good.

        Made a batch of pretzel rolls with a pizza dough that had to be used up before the bag exploded.

        Tomorrow will probably be taco chicken in the crockpot to make tacos for dinner. Yum!

                My wife is out having lunch with the 'girls.' I know that is not political correct, but they like to be called that because they are all over 70 years old. She comes home with no appetite for dinner.

                I'm defrosting some incendiary chili for dinner.

                  Not sure yet. I'm looking for inspiration on the current What's for Dinner? thread: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/921661

                    I'm cooking up quarterly reports at work at the moment but later on tonight, I am going to make cheese pennies to bring to work tomorrow. Will counteract the sugary stuff that will show up and, a bonus, they're round and orange.

                      Cheese pennies? Sounds interesting!

                      When I get home from work, I'm starting a batch of dough for burger buns, and I'm making salted pepitas caramels for work tomorrow.

                          Totally didn't have time for the dough, but I got my pepitas roasted and caramels made, plus I managed to get dinner on the table and my hamburglar costume completed!
