What's for Dinner?

Postby mohumbhai mania » Tue Oct 27, 2009 3:51 pm

It's always fun to compare notes on this topic.

I'm having chili. Cleaned out my fridge - I normally wouldn't put leeks in it, but I didn't want to waste 'em. Some homecooked and canned beans, some beef, an appalling number of hot peppers, and some crushed tomatoes. I'm no purist. Threw it all in the crockpot last night. I'm looking forward to that.

I have no clue what's for dinner yet. I guess that's not very productive for this thread, eh?

My favorite meal for dinner is home-made taco salad. MMMM!!!

I'm not very well (I have a chest infection) and am trying to cheer myself up by making something nice for dinner.
Anyone any idea what I can make with peppers, onions, tomatoes and creme fraiche?

It'd need to be easy. I'm too pooped to do anything complicated. Maybe I'll stir fry them all together without the creme fraiche. of course!

If you've got eggs sounds like you'd have the makings of a yummy fritatta.

I'm so glad you asked... Tonight we're having carrot soup (because we have a ridiculous amount of carrots in our house at the moment), chicken salad (using leftovers from a yummy roast chicken we had on the weekend), and one of the most wonderful creations I've ever had the pleasure of eating - gougères. I :drool: at the simple thought of them. Finally, hubby's broken wrist is mended enough that he can cook again, but he's not well enough to go back to work. Lucky me!

YUM.

I might have to make them for a appetizer-y type dinner that's coming up.
It's just cream puffs with cheese, right? Cream puffs are easy to make.

I've never heard of these before, but all french bread is yummy!

I have decided to make a risotto. My husband hates it and he's away at the moment, so I shall treat myself.
I have no eggs, so I can't make a frittata (which would have also been nice as, again, my husband doesn't like it, but I do).

Maybe I should get some hens- I've been thinking about it for some time now.

We're using the crock-pot tonight too, Kelly - we're having beef stew and garlic bread. It's a pain to get it all going at 9 AM but it's so worth it when 6 PM rolls around and all I have to do is scoop it out of the pot. :drool:

This is actually a test run of our new crock pot we had to buy last week. It's very sad because our old crock pot was the one my grandmother used when I was a little kid, the thing was easily 30 years old. Very 70's and retro. Unfortunately I broke the lid. :( We have been scouring the local thrift stores for several months looking for a new lid but no luck. Finally we had to break down and buy a whole new crock pot because the weather is getting cold and we cannot make it through the winter without a crock pot. The new one is all shiny and brushed aluminum and modern looking, and I hate it, lol. I miss my old brown and cream one with avocado green drawings of herbs on the sides. :(

If by cream puffs you mean the puff part that the cream sits in - then yes. Kind of like profiteroles. They aren't hard to make. Just have to make sure to beat the batter really well when you add the cheese so they come out fluffy. Other cheeses work well too, like parmesan, as long as they are hard, and relatively strong tasting.

Yes, absolutely.
I heard gruyere or super sharp cheddar are great, too.

Everything you all are making sounds so yummy!

Tonight I made "chili". I make it with ground beef, stewed tomatoes, peppers,corn,beans and topped it with shredded cheese and sour cream and tortilla chips. It's quick and easy and the boys love it. :D

This thread is making me hungry! :tonqe:

I don't like to cook, nor do I really know how to make anything very exciting. And lately I've been too busy and/or tired to make anything so I've been eating out too much and making a lot of frozen pizzas. Ugh.
If you looked into my fridge, you'd think a bachelor lived here!
In fact, that's probably what I'll be having tonight... frozen pizza... and wine. :drinkers:
