I love fresh asparagus in the spring I could eat it every day. Thanks for the idea I haven`t done a nice tenderloin in a while, I like to slow grill them.

I need dinner ideas every night! I get home so late I am always recipe surfing for something creative that's quick and easy. I love different pastas - so I have been switching it up with pasta and vegies lately. I made Orzo, added small cubes of zuccini, sundried tomatoes and artichokes (chopped up and softened with Olive Oil and garlic) added a jar of alfredo sauce...topped with either Shrimp, Scallops, or Clams. This is so fast and easy to make and my boyfriend thinks its 'gourmet' because I used seafood. LOL

I do a lot of salmon because, like you WTL I am home late and STARVING by the time I get there. Salmon cooks very quickly and I can prepare 2 or three servings and have lunch for the next day or two as well. Add a salad and there you have my usual dinner. Sometimes a cooked veggie. I love cooked spinach or other greens as a bed for my salmon....guess what I'm gonna fix for dinner tonight?!

Really Easy Enchiladas

brown and crispy ground meat (drained)
sauteed with onions until carmelized

can tomato soup
can mushroom soup
1/2 jar of salsa

bring to hot and bubbly in sauce pan.

Corn tortillas- dampen paper towels on plate and layer tortillas,another dampened paper towel, layer tortillas, etc. I usually use 15 tortillas. Microwave 1-1 1/2 minutes (until softened)

Spoon beef mixture and fold in each side of tortilla- place fold side down in rectangular pan, snuggly side by side. (two 13x9 pans)

Spoon remaining beef mixture over top, cover with shredded cheddar cheese. bake 15 minutes 350 degrees.

serve with chopped lettuce and cilatro and corn relish. sides of sour cream and guacamole. fast and tasty.
I make this at least once a week.

LoVeY12105

I know you said your hubby is tired of chicken, but I have to say, besides beer can chicken, this is the moistest chicken I've ever made.

Buy a whole chicken, salt it inside and out .. refrigerate for 24 hours.

Next day, twine the legs and tuck the wings.

Salt and pepper the cavity again, then stuff it with one cut up lemon and two split in half garlic heads.

Baste it with four tblsp. melted butter and season with salt and pepper

Surround it with cut up carrots, potatoes, onion.

Bake 425 degrees for 1 1/2 hours!

Delicious !!!

"The hubby is sick of chicken, and I don't like steak. Anyone have any ideas?"

* 1-Iguana

* 1-tablespoon of black pepper
* 1/2-cabbage
* 2-cloves of garlic

Skin and clean iguana, then wash it in a mixture of vinegar and lime. After that, mix all seasonings and spices together in a bowl and rub them into the meat. Leave the rubbed meat for half an hour. Pour coconut oil in a pot, just to cover the bottom and place it on the fire.

Looks good except that I don't know what recardo is.

_CUY CHAQTADO_

Fried Guinea Pig (Ayacucho-style)

1 guinea pig, de-haired, gutted, and cleaned

1/2 c. flour

1/4 - 1/2 t. ground cumin

salt and black pepper to taste

1/2 c. oil

Pat dry the skin of the guinea pig and rub in the cumin, salt, and pepper. Preheat oil. Dust the carcass with the flour and place it on its back in the oil, turning to cook both sides. Alternately, the guinea pig can be cut and fried in quarters.

Serve with boiled potato or boiled manioc root, and a salad of cut tomatoes and slivered onions bathed in lime juice and a bit of salt. Have cold beer on hand.

Fry up hamburger meat (sprinkle with sugar - sounds gross just do it) set aside;
scramble 2 eggs - set aside;
Boil Ramen noodles (it's quick and easy - and looks impressive)drain and set aside'
Julienne a carrot, snow peas, onion (any other veggie);
In your wok (you know you have one somewhere), add the meat and veggies, "stir fry" in olive oil (sesame oil if you have it); add ramen noodles and drizzle some soy sauce (kikkoman NOT La Choy), sprinkle with more sugar (lightly) add salt and pepper add eggs.
THis is a meal in itself; you can use any type of meat (even bacon) use bamboo shoots, beansprouts, waterchestnuts etc.
At Wegmans, you can experiment with different rice noodles - but for an easy at home meal - I like the ramen noodles.

BE CAREFUL! Use a pressure cooker, with a locking lid; those things are DANGEROUS, once you start putting the heat to them!

We just got back from Maine and had some wonderful food, of course lobster in several ways. Last night we made lobster rolls, something so simple can be so good! The price was really down all along the coast,chix were $3.99 for 1 1/4 lb/and under. Good for us but sad for the lobstermen.

That sounds good.

I've got a london broil in the fridge. Just trying to decide on what sides I'm going to make. Maybe some rice and a veggie!

2 butternut squash - peeled and cut into four pieces
1 medium sized onion
chicken stock 32 oz. (2 of them)
cream
olive oil
salt & pepper
cinnamon- dash
curry powder - I use about a Tbsp, you could use more or less depending on how much curry flavor you like

Cut each squash into four pieces, you can peel before or after, whichever is easier for you. Season with salt and pepper, lightly coat with olive oil and roast in the oven an hour or so at 400 degrees.

Chop onions and sautee with olive oil, cinnamon, and curry powder until they start to caramelize.

Puree onions and squash in food processor or blender. Add enough chicken stock to get it going. Put it all back on the stove and then add your cream, again, you could use as much or as little as you like. I think I added about a cup or so.

Loc: Tahiti - I can dream...
easy dinner: orzo and jar of alfredo sauce.
I saute tiny cubed zucchini, onion, garlic, sundried tomatoes, roasted red peppers. (I like artichokes too)
Cook up large scallops (substitute with Shrimp, mussels etc)
Add veggies to orzo and alfredo sauce; top with scallops.
if i'm really into cooking I'll saute fresh spinach with a little garlic - serve everything over the spinach.

The most important think in this soup is to be sure to cook the onions until they are very soft and to use good beef stock or broth.

I'm gonna have to try that! Sounds good. Tomorrow I'm going to try kalbasa soup.

Drain and rinse
4 cans of Kidney beans
3 cans navy beans

finely chopped
1 large onion
garlic (lots)
3 stalk celery
3 carrots
potatoes

add
1/2 cup barley
1.5 lbs kalbasa (cut up 4 ways)
8 cans chicken broth

I'm probably going to put it in the crockpot and you can cut this recipe in half. We had it the other night and it was delicious so I'm gonna give it a shot.

I have a 5 quart crockpot and 8 cans of broth was too much, I used 6 cans and I was pushing it.

Loc: TOV Seneca Falls


Double-Stuffed Chicken Breasts
Ingredients:

* 1/2 cup small shell pasta
* 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
* 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
* 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
* 1/2 cup coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley
* Salt
* 2 large eggs
* 2/3 cup breadcrumbs
* Four 8- to 10-ounce chicken breasts
* 3 cups store-bought marinara sauce

Directions:

1.

Preheat the oven to 350°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a pot of boiling, salted water, cook the pasta for 4 minutes; drain and rinse with cold water. Transfer to a bowl and add the mozzarella, ricotta, parmesan and 1/4 cup parsley; season with salt.
2.

In a shallow bowl, beat the eggs. Place the breadcrumbs in another shallow bowl.
3.

Stuff the pasta-cheese mixture under the skin of each chicken breast. Dip the stuffed chicken breasts in the eggs, roll in the breadcrumbs, then place skin side up on the prepared pan. Bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the breast registers 165°, about 50 minutes.
4.

Meanwhile, in a saucepan, heat the marinara sauce. Serve each breast on a bed of sauce, topped with 1 tablespoon parsley.

I put the roast in the crock pot around 9 or 10 in the morning leave on low all day long. Around 2 put your veggies in. By 5 or 6 you have the a moist, fall apart roast and the veggies are perfect. I then take the juice and make gravy. It's perfect.

Ian-
I use one can of beef broth, or Beefy Onion Soup mix(according to directions). The soup mix is high in sodium though. I put every thing in the Crock Pot at the same time.
I cook it on low from 7:30 am until about 5:30pm. Falls apart, but it's still moist.

I put at least 16 ozs of water in with everything and I only use beef boulin cubes, onion salt, garlic salt, and meat tenderizer. It makes for a great gravy in the end.

Ian,

I have never tried the crock pot method, but I think I will.

When I make pot roast I sear the roast on all sides with hot oil and chopped garlic to seal in juices (thats what mom told me) in the roasting pan. Then I add quartered onions and potatoes and carrots. (mom adds turnips-yuck, anyway)....I season with salt and pepper and garlic powder. I add onion soup mix (make according to directions) and sprinkle rosemary on the potatoes. Cover and roast in 425 oven first hour. Then turn it down to 325 for 4 hours.

a few months ago i took my kids to the library and while they were there i decided to poke thru the children's cook books..i came across this little book called Cooking for Kids..it had beautiful pics of prob 10 dishes that seemed fairly easy to make..what the heck, i'll take it out..the first recipe was spaghetti a la carbonara..omg this was one of the best tasting pastas i've ever had..so simple i couldnt believe it..3 cloves garlic, 1 small onion, and 1lb bacon all cut very small..cook all together till brown..in a separate bowl, mix 2 eggs and 1/3 cup parmesian cheese..boil 1lb of linguine or spaghetti and right after draining, add the egg/cheese mixture and stir..the heat from the pasta cooks the egg mixture..then add the bacon, onion, garlic mixture(add most of the bacon grease too) and BAM!! add a little parsley at the end for color and OMG its sooooo good..PS it doesnt need much salt cuz of the bacon and the parmesian..for some reason last time i was at the library i couldnt find the book!! i dying to try some of the other recipes!!
