What are you having for dinner? AGAIN!

wales, that site is my go to! I have been following her for a few years.

heather, I used green olives with pimentos. I got a big vat of them on a recent shop.

We ordered out for lunch. I had chicken huevos rancheros. I will be full until Friday.

I am about to put chicken with Greek olives into the slow cooker. It may be supper tonight or tomorrow, depending on how my day goes. The package of chicken thighs contained 6, so 4 go to the slow cooker and I will poach and freeze the other two for use in future recipes.

Pizza! (not a shop. trying a new-to-here place.)

I made meatballs and sauce with fresh basil I grew. I have more basil seedlings going right now...with bowtie pasta and parm cheese!
I am on the road. Having Chinese delivered: hot and sour soup, egg rolls, steamed dumplings

I loved the flavor of the crock pot chicken and olives, so I wanted to make a salad version without the chicken. My job orders out almost every day, so there is no need for me to make big dishes for the week.

My brief search led me to a puttanesca salad on the Food TV site: tomatoes, onions, capers, olives, anchovies, garlic, parsley, oil and basil. I added pasta and carrots.

The salad was very flavorful, but my breath was beyond intense!

I have a whole roasting chicken and today may be the day that I try a recipe for making "rotisserie" chicken in the oven. If not today, at least I will season it and let it "marinate" until tomorrow.

Chicken! Baking it with herbs. If we had been clever, we would have crushed and bottled Mom's 'herbs for chicken' and called it a rub. Alas. But we enjoy this yummy stuff while someone else gets money for the same general concept, if not for the same combination of flavors.

That "rotisserie chicken was so good that I have posted the recipe in the area for recipes for the shutdown.

Tonight will be shrimp Alfredo and a green veg TBD.

I was overly optimistic at the produce section of the Asian market last week and had a couple of pounds of Bok Choy that had to be used up (as well as a container of baby portabellas and some stale tortillas) from Aldi. I added onion/garlic/spices/enchilada sauce and turned it all into casserole big enough for both tonight and tomorrow night's dinner.

Making pot roast with mushroom gravy in the slow cooker. Will have with mashed potatoes and steamed fresh carrots. There will be enough pot roast to freeze for a couple more meals.

I will have some of that rotisserie chicken in a lunch sandwich and freeze the lg/thigh portions.

Finally made the chicken. I boiled it and then made each piece unique. So good!

Today's ingredients are black beans, sweet potatoes, and Shanghai bok choy (along with onion/garlic). Trying to decide what form they will take. Stuffed sweet potato with bok choy salad on the side? Sweet potato/black bean chili over bok choy? Or maybe curry instead of chili?

I ended up reheating leftovers last night, so will have that pot roast dinner tonight. It is always even better the second day.

I ended up chopping all the vegetables,roasted them in the oven, and mixing in the beans and some tahini-curry dressing. It was very good.

I have a chicken in the freezer taking up some much needed space. Also, it's been in there for close to a year. It's time to make a stock.

Homemade spring rolls with thai chili sauce (not homemade). The chef used up a lot of the veggies. smiling smiley
More pot roast and taters and carrots, and then I will freeze what is left of this batch.
last night was a bowl with couscous cooked in chicken broth,, some more of that roasted chicken, broccoli, chopped black olives and a little crumbled low fat feta. This remind me that I still have enough frozen cooked lamb to make up a similar bowl in a couple of days. Gotta love planned-overs in the last week of the month !

That's funny. It reminds me of my mom. I don't think that anyone under 50 eats lamb anymore? (Unless you are from one of the countries that eat a lot of it - Australia, New Zealand, and Greece come to mind.) She used to roast it and have it with mint jelly.
Honny,
Why not roast the chicken (See recent recipe that yields very moist meat in the Recipes for the Shutdown) and then use the bones for stock? After all, the meat contributes little to stock-making whereas it will yield some to add to the eventual soup, sandwich makings, salad makings, grain bowl toppings, etc. For even richer stock, go to Giant and grab a package of chicken feet. That is what the Chinese favor for making rich chicken stock.

MMmmmm lamb stew. I slow cook it occasionally because my Grandma cooked it often. She was born 'Near Kiev' in Russia. Yes I am over 50. What about lamb chops? Does anyone eat them anymore?
Yes ! I also braise lamb shanks and then strip out the meat to use with couscous or yellow rice, adding olives and feta and broccoli to make one bowl meals.

Yes, but they are now called, “lamb lollipops.” I sometimes see them on menus in hipster places.
