  1. Shouldn't open this thread on an empty stomach or at least not until I have been to the market and picked up things for dinner. Now I want ribs, gazpacho, lamb, , salmon, flounder....etc...

    Haven't done much cooking the last few nights as we have had ball games to go to. Sunday night I made Mexican. Chicken Tostadas. Made two salsas one with tomatoes blackened on the grill and one with just fresh tomatoes. And we had Sangria to drink with it.

  2. Wow, such wonderful meals. Alinka great sandwich and what a wonderful picture too. This thread is responsible for many cravings. I would love a hamburger. And you should be proud of that picture Grub.

    We had an easy pasta dish last night. Clams steamed with garlic, onions, white wine, chicken broth, chopped tomatoes and lots of fresh basil. Served over Linguine.

  3. Wow some amazing looking dinners, Patrick's Lamb, Susan's crab feast, Foodman's Chicken Rollades, Grubs Pork Vindaloo & Aloo Gobi (Love curry), oh and Bill's Salmon. Everything looks wonderful.

    I made Chicken Pot Pie yesterday. Used frozen puff pastry this time instead of the herb (thyme) crust that I usually make. I had enough filling and pastry to make one large and four small.

  4. My family loves salads but I have never been a big fan of them. So I don't make them nearly as often as they would like me too. Here are a few that I have made in the past.

  5. Easy dinner last night. We had to leave early to watch a Ball Game so I just put together an antipasto plate of melon wrapped in Italian proscuitto drizzled with a little olive oil ,fresh ground black pepper, kalamata olives and gorgonzola cheese.

  6. Haven't made chicken wings in a while. Need to add them to the menu soon. Those look wonderful.

    We had a Herbed Rack of Pork for dinner. Fresh shelled peas, roasted butternut squash and mashed potatoes.

  7. Pollo Alla Marengo over Tagliatella. I made a few minor adjustments to the recipe which is out of The Art of Eating Well, Pellegrino Artusi 1820 - 1911, Italy's Most Treasured Cookbook.

  10. Mark, I've gone back to look at your pasta dish a number of times. I'm still drooling over it. I picked up some wonderful heirloom tomatoes at the farmers market that might be destined for something similar.

    Klary, I love the combination of Sage and White beans.

    Dinner here was fresh halibut grilled with an lemon asparagus risotto.

  11. Bella, I don't think the rules here on eGullet permit me to post the recipe directly out of the "Delicious" magazine. I can though give you the basic idea and you can take it from there. The chicken breast is stuffed under the skin with a fresh bread crumb stuffing seasoned with sauted minced pancetta and onion along with some parmesan cheese and parsley. I also added a little minced garlic to the stuffing and a little lemon zest which wasn't called for in the recipe. The chicken is roasted in a hot oven and the sauce is made from the pan drippings. A little white wine reduced and then a few tablespoons of mascarpone and homemade pesto. I also added a little chicken broth because I wanted a thinner sauce. I think that chicken stuffed with a mushroom duxelle would be really good with this sauce too. In fact this sauce is so good that I can imagine it with pork, veal or beef tenderloin.

  12. Lovely looking roast chicken dinners and that lemon risotto has given me a craving for risotto.

    Chicken here last night too. Recipe for chicken with pesto and mascarpone sauce is out of Delicious Magazine. And the roast peppers stuffed with feta is from Olive Magazine.

  13. Wow, Moby that is a work of art. Just beautiful. And Percy there is nothing ghastly about that pork at all. Looks rather succulent to me. Now I have a craving for pork.

    I picked up a couple of pounds of clams at the the Granville Market yesterday and made a white clam sauce to serve over spaghetti.

  14. Alink, I could handled the fries for breakfast but I would have to pass on the herring. LOL! What I would really like though is your Bliny. Great picture.

    No toast this morning. Forgot to stop at one of the neighbourhood bakeries for fresh bread yesterday so at 6:00 AM this morning I put a pan of Biscuits seasoned with black pepper and some Double Gloucester and Stilton Cheese in the oven. We had them with cappuccino.
