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........   <_<

stooooooop it......  did you shred the cheddar for the tots or slices of cheese - doooo telllll !!   :)   and how was the pillsbury dough is it in stores already????  i never check, as it is still just a mythical item lolz  :lol:   plus, i live in e.tn, where everything gets here 'eventually' - we always say:  if the world ends, we'll be good for another 2 years.  that's how long it'll take to get here!

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 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.
