    Not an especially attractive picture, but it was dinner: Chicken Cacciatore.

    Dinner was variations on Martini Chicken and Alfredo sauce. Egg noodles were store bought.

    Our dinner tonight was chili, onion rings and watermelon. I could not find any Mexican chroizo to add with the hamburger but did find some Spanish style so used it. I think I liked it better. The watermelon was not great but it was OK, I guess. I like to use my Santa Fe railroad dining car plates when I have chili.

    Last night was Fricasseed Chicken finished with biscuit dumplings. I would describe the cake as a thick cake like crust with a thin cheese cake pie topping, both using pineapple juice as the liquid, then after baking, topped with some pineapple and cherry.

    Charlie loves Chile Relleno but they are messy and time consuming. This looked like a good and easier use of poblanos. We both thought they were good. It was poblanos stuffed with cheeses and shrimp and baked then served atop a red bell pepper sauce.

    Our dinner tonight was one we have been enjoying for a long time. It was Cornish hens marinated with orange juice, Triple Sec, honey and soy sauce. Some of it was reserved for basting and thickening with cornstarch to set on the table with the chickens.

    @TdeV I used my son's recipe with some changes. Here is what I did for the Kalbi Kalbi (Korean Beef Short Rib BBQ) Note: Marinade a min of 10 to 12hrs • Beef Short Ribs (3 to 4lbs) • 1/2 cup soy sauce • 1/4 cup Sesame oil ( you would probably be OK using just 2 Tbsps.) • 6 Tbsp Brown sugar • 5 Tbsp water • 4 Tbsp Mirin. • 3 Tbsp rice syrup (I used because I got some for another recipe and wanted to use it up) son uses corn syrup • 2 Tbsp galic • 1/4 tsp ginger • Chopped Green onions (about 1 cup) • Dash of peppers • 1 Asian Pear • Instead of the pear, you may substitute Jumex Pear Flavored Nectar or you may also try other fruits, such as apple juice Charlie usually adds some Coke the marinade. PS I made a second, half batch, added about a quarter cup of Dr. Pepper and boiled in for a couple minutes, cooled to room temperature, then poured then it over the ribs after they were cooked. PS I try to always post the recipes of what I cook at the blog link below.

    I marinated Kalbi overnight and grilled it today. We had it with rice, laver and kimchi.

    Dinner was salmon on the grill with a sweet bourbon BBQ glaze and peaches grilled with honey, cinnamon and vanilla. It was supposed to be topped with melted strawberry jam but I didn't have any so I used melted ice cream. The smashed potatoes were a Jaques Pepin recipe.

    This was a couple nights ago. I saw it on facebook and thought it looked good. It said to use two chicken breasts. I never know if they really mean from two chickens or two half breasts. I used two halves. More chicken would have been better.

    We ate at an Italian restaurant a couple weeks ago and I thought both our dinners were good so i tried to duplicate them tonight. I think I found a very similar recipe for Shrimp Scampi but only came close to the Mussels in Wine sauce. I need to work on that one.

    The store had some meaty looking ham hocks so that decided dinner. They didn't have any collards or spinach, just kale and turnip greens, so I decided to do bok choy separately and add them with the beans and hocks at the end. I had a Tim Tam cookie crumbled over the last of the vanilla ice cream for dessert. It was the last cookie too so I suppose Charlie will end up raiding the Halloween candy bowl later when he gets hungry for dessert.
