The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

We had Experimental Dinner. Rules of Exp. Dinner:

I make some recipes I have been wanting to try. They may have nothing to do with each other and make a strange meal. If you don't like it you don't have to eat it but you have to try everything. Constructive comments are encouraged.

Tonight's was a success! Everyone liked everything just the way it was. The ony suggestion was to use the chicken marinade on a pork chop.

We had:

Baked cheese & broccoli patties

Tasty Trashy Taters ( tater tot, cheddar, hot sauce, rolled in a piece of bacon, coated in brown sugar & baked)

Clinton Kelly's supreme pizza dippers using the new Pillsbury pizza dough

Daphne Oz's sweet and spicy wings

Michael Simons chocolate Carmel peanut bars

Ski Lisa recipe for Lemonies ( made extra glaze, poked holes in the " cake" and then poured it on. We LOVE lemon))

4 of these recipes came from the TV show The Chew! I have had great luck with them.

 

This sounds like a blast...how fun would it be to potluck with this thread!!!

 

We had Lemonies tonight with vanilla ice cream...anyway you slice them...lemonies are firmly planted in the rotation :)

 

Hey....just notice my response of gratitude to L2T isn't there....freaking kindle is all i have next to the pool and sadly...between this sad little machine and me being drippy...things run a muck!

Last night we had the steak....and saved the beautiful huge shrimp I purchased for tonight....someone posted a really easy way to do shrimp which involves a stick of butter -- sounds great -- that is what is for dinner with pasta of some sort and brussel sprouts -- kinda similar to Addie's -- except with BACON :)

I scrapped the corn idea when I got to the kitchen. I remembered I have brussel sprouts in the fridge. Fresh and beautiful and just dying to be eaten. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with them so I started poking around in there and remembered I have an eensy bit of loose sausage from the other day. I fried about a tablespoon of that, threw in some olive oil and put in my sprouts, cut in half. And just left them. When they were all golden I tossed some diced onion on them and enough salt to choke a camel, threw a lid on and turned them off but left them on the burner til dinner was ready.

 

I swear... omg... they are the best thing I ever cooked in my life. I almost died of happiness eating them. And they took like seriously 20 minutes to make if I count the time I was deciding what to do with them!

i make them with prosciutto, shallots and a little bit of balsamic vinegar - sometimes we go *crazy* and add a little dijon - depends on what else we're making - mmmmm!  mmmmmmmm!  loves me some sprouts :)  i used to just cook them whole (boil the crap out of them lolz) because my mother didn't like them so she never made them.  my ex-m.i.l. served them to me once and i was like WHAT are THESE ??  

 

i have ever sliced them and quick-fried them in butter s&p and they are yummz that way too.  i have seen them in salads, shredded, as well.  i bet a good dijon vinegarette and bacon bits, viola, side salad.  now i need brussel sprouts........   <_<

I'm not allowed to have bacon in the house. Because I apparently have about as much self control as a toddler would if a cookie jar tipped over in front of them. I wanted to make them with bacon but figured that sausage would have to be a suitable substitute and just cooked it until it was itsy bitsy crispy crumbles. HAH! I showed it!

I made the candy bar part of these last night!  They are soooo good! And easy to make.

 

Not sure about popcorn gelato tho.  :wacko: 

 

I would totally make popcorn gelato. It sounds interesting and I'm up for just about anything once. I had other people doing too much in the kitchen yesterday to have enough space or feel comfortable, I have it all to myself today though so I'm getting to my chocolate chip mint today. :D

Little tiny chunks of cheese.  I put my comments on the bacon thread with the "recipe"

 

the Pillsbury dough was just in the regular grocery with all the other refrigerated Pillsbury doughs.  I would have missed it but I was thinking about getting the boys a can of rolls.  The pizza dough is mainly tapioca so its chewy.  Worked well for the little balls.  All the additives make it easy to roll out and not sticky.  My older son suggested that they might make a nice donut type thing. Maybe apple pie filling cut small and cinnamon sugar on the outside.  Or cook the little balls with sugar on the outside and then "inject" jam or icing.

 

It has a very short expiration date. So use it quickly.

the tapioca-y-ness of the chebe pizza crust is why i didn't like it so i hope the pillsbury is not so much.  (filled with jam - yum - i love it that y'all play with your food, too :D  )

 

i was trying to stay off the bacon thread......  because i didn't want to o.d. - oh, well, at least i'll die with a big greasy smile on my face!!  ;)

The pie crust doesn't have tapioca. I am going to try it for something, probably not pie.

Apparently I have given myself a very serious problem. I am now addicted to brussel sprouts, they're for dinner again. I threw together some scalloped taters. My husband wants his bratz which I can't possibly eat so I'll just have a burger.

As time gluten-free increases...this can happen - sucks but does reinforce the need to become a really good label reader.

Needed to go to Home Depot to pick up some things. Got up super early to avoid the heat. Got home at 9:30 and it is already 80. There isn't really anything the low humidity can do for us with these temps, it is just too damn hot! Since this is an outdoor project that involves painting something, I suppose it'll have to wait until about sunset so I can go out and not melt.

 

I think we may have chicken for supper. Maybe... idk, its too hot to think. Maybe we'll just eat my ice cream we're freezing today. :D

In my experience most spaghetti sauces are gluten free. I always bought Classico because it doesn't taste like chemical crap. If you want to try something "exotic" Dave's has a nice butternut sauce, but it is rather expensive.

 

ETA: I shouldn't have conversations while typing. I type what I mean to say and say what I mean to type.

    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
