What's for Dinner?

I haven't done a what's for dinner post in ages. So I'm just going to spout off a bunch of stuff that I've been cooking. One of these days I am going to put together a cook book for friends and family that will include all of my recipes plus some of our old family recipes.

So let's see, what's been on the menu in the Glasser household...

I made a pasta dish last night. I used fresh three cheese tortellini and combined it with baby bellas, chicken, garlic, diced cherry tomatoes, artichoke hearts, shredded Parmesean, and a good italian dressing. It was pretty good and can be eaten hot or cold. I myself prefer to eat it cold the next day after the flavors have married. I also made fresh bruschetta to go with it.

A few nights ago I made chicken with a creamy white wine sauce and mushrooms that turned out well and got rave reviews. But most nights have been fairly ordinary meals like pot roasts, stews, enchiladas, casseroles, etc... Pork tenderloin made several different ways has been on the menu also. I'm not sure what is my favorite way to eat Pork tenderloin. It's so good and versatile. I've stuffed it, marinated it, roasted it, and have used it in Panang. It's also great in stews!

I'm getting a craving for good indian food and might make some soon. I love saag paneer, vegetable korma, naan, and different meat dishes, so I'm going to have to plan something special soon. Indian food takes a long time and is a bit involved but so worth it when made in your own kitchen.

Tonight I'm making a simple down home pot roast with roasted veggies. I'll probably make a cobbler for dessert. Tomorrow night I'll make chicken crepes with bechamel sauce. YUMMY!

But no Salmon Nachos - sniff

Ginny said...

I know...not yet. I haven't been in a salmon mood for the past few months. I don't know why, but I'm sure the mood will strike again someday and when it does, Salmon nachos here I come. ;)

I make chicken cacciatore every so often in a slow cooker. Turns out pretty good.
Indian food! Your kitchen will smell like curry for days. lol

Yeah the curry will be prevalent for a day maybe. I'm pretty quick with opening windows, lighting candles, and airing the place out. :)

Yep Ara you missed out, but heck we're not going anywhere and will be here when you come through again. I hope it's not too far off in the future. Hmmm, I'll have to do a little recon work and find out when mom is going to be here next. ;)
