Stuffed haddock. Mention of Legal Seafood on the restaurant thread inspired me. Sautee some leeks in a quarter stick of butter. Add pepper, garlic and about a half cup of bread crumbs. Also lemon juice. Fish goes in a glass baking dish in a quarter inch of Pinot Grigio. Cover with the stuffing and top with a quarter cup of freshly grated parm.

On the side, rice pilaf and green veg.

Cooking for five tonight. The oldest is home fom college.

and you?

Tuna steaks on the grill. First give'em a good splash of olive oil and some lemon juice. Then coat them with some Cajun spices...succulent.
I always start with a cold beer or two. I finish with my special fruit smoothy. An entire bag of mixed frozen fruit(strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries) add some 2% milk, real vanilla(I'm talkin' the good stuff from Cancun) and three tablespoons of honey. This concoction almost fills the entire blender(and of course my belly! ;\) )

I have an old Sunset cookbook. It has some great recipes. I didn't realize there is a magazine. What is its bent - quick and easy, healty, . . .?

I'm an old reformed vegetarian. I was fairly strict for about 10 years, and then had kids, divorced my even stricter (to the point of fantacism) husband and rebelled and started eating meat again. I continue to, and enjoy it, but could easily be vegetarian again - if someone cooked for me. I find that cooking healthy, interesting vegeterian meals is a lot more work than meat-based meals. That said, I love Vegetarian Times magazine. I finally quit subscribing when I couldn't keep up and they piled up unused.

Tonite...

chicken noodle soup, made traditionally with a whole chicken, water, onions, parsley, cilantro, carrots, celery and noodles with a lemon squeezed into it,

and

a spinach quich-y thing w/ no crust that has 2 packages of frozen spinach, some green chile peppers, a cup or two of domestic feta cheese, parsley (extraordinarily good for you BTW),. mozarella, parmesan, eggs, maybe a few bread crumbs, that is baked until it looks like a little green square pan of fudge,

and a salad - baby greens, cilantro, cabbage, onions, walnuts, lemon, olive oil and a salt mixture,

and cold water in glasses

ME TOO! We stopped when the kids came along. (Thought vegetarianism might not give them the proper nutrition.) But were veg's most of the time we lived just in NYC.

It's actually nutritionally just fine if you take the time to plan balanced meals. Remember the book, "Diet for a Small Planet?" That talked about the 7 (I believe?) protein amino acids and using foods that complemented each such that you'd get all 7, e.g. brown rice and beans.

It's always a hoot to request see what you get when you request a vegetarian meal on a plane or restaurant that doesn't cater to veggers. I recently did this on a Delta flight and got the most bizarre sandwich with grilled zuchinni and onions, period - no cheese, no nothin' on a white, bulky roll. In the meantime, I was drooling over my neighbors crackers with spreadable cheese thinking, "where's my protein. Why didn't I get some cheese?"

I was a vegetarian for a couple of years only while in college. I decided that I'd had enough and went to a deli and ordered a huge roast beef sandwich on light rye. Wolfed it right down. Twenty minutes later....threw it right up.

So what's for dinner tonight?

I have a small roast beef in the fridge, but probably won't be home in time to do it tonight.

I, too, am one of those former vegetarians. I still have my 1973 copy of The Vegetarian Epicure by Anna Thomas and will occasionally whip up something from it.

Tonight's fare? Chicken breasts, brushed with olive oil and seasoned with a poultry rub, then grilled; wild rice; Caesar salad.

Tonite we're having 'beef stroganoff soup'. I don't love it but everyone else does. I make a rich beef stock with a lot of red wine, add onion, mushrooms, noodles and more beef and stir in some sour cream before stirring. Homemade bread and salad.

Yesterday we had a baked chicken stuffed with a nut-bread cube celery dressing, rutabagas and potatoes mashed together, topped with sauteed mushrooms and some clear au-juicy liquid and of course salad. yum

Tonight we're having mesquite barbeque chicken soup. I wet smoke a chicken the make a soup out of it. The soup carries the mesquite flavor of the chicken. I satue onions, garlic and celery then add pan drippings. Then I gradualy add a can of low salt chicken broth. The add chicken carrots and some water. I cook it for a couple of hours.

Ever since Christmas we're eating in the dining room--candles, cloth napkins, crystal, silver and a sip of wine for the ten year old. The girls still sing grace but now excuse themselves before ambling off to do the dishes. And since we're in the dining room the wife and I don't have to see the kids dirty looks as they are slaving away!

Tom and Apple, sounds great. You guys eat really well. My wife and I are both working so our better meals are limited to Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. During the week it's more like burgers or spaghetti.

How do you "wet smoke" chicken? Sounds pretty good.

There is a molasses bread recipe that I used to make often. It is almost like cake and, if I recall, does not require yeast.

You all make me sick! Or should I say hungry! \:D

'm preparing dinner for two with leftovers. Biscuits, sausage, eggs, and whatever I throw along with it.

Last night, son's birthday, we had southern soul food. Fried chicken, homemade biscuits (some left over and frozen), gravy, corn, butter beans, green beans, spiced peaches, and banana pudding. I made it all with the exception of the pudding (son's request for b'day), served cold, (yuck). I like it a bit warm or at room temperature.

We did have a good white wine, the name escapes me, but it was good! And good strong coffee with the desert. ( Was that supposed to be double "s", gryphon?)

Honestly, I can do better!

Help!

Both kids got great report cards, so we are taking them out for a restaurant dinner tonight. (Big deal in our house.) Their choice was the local burger joint where everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, is fried.

If they could figure out a way to deep fry a salad, I'm sure they'd serve it.

Is a turkey burger really better for you than a hamburger? That's my only hope.
