23  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Yummy fall dinner (Dinner AND Dessert with Seasonal Fruits and Veggies) on: September 16, 2008 04:29:09 PM
Fall is less than a week away!  I've been in my kitchen hard at work on some yummy fall dinners... and tonight I made a winner!

What you'll need:

Sweet Potatoes (the micro kind work best!)
Roasted Chicken (either rotisserie from the grocery store or roasted yourself)
Frozen Corn
Chicken Stuffing Mix
Raisins (Golden preferred, but any will work!)
Ground Nutmeg
Frozen Green Beans

You'll need a couple of baked sweet potatoes, soft but not mashable, cut into bite-sized pieces.

Make the chicken stuffing according to the package directions.

Nuke the corn in about 1/2 cup water with about half cup of raisins.  Drain and add to stuffing mix with the baked sweet potatoes.  Place the stuffing mix in a baking dish.  Sprinkle with ground nutmeg.

Cut the chicken into bite sized pieces. Spread on top of stuffing mix.

Bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees.

Serve with buttered green beans.  (I salt mine with sea salt)

I even got my chicken poxed munchkin to eat it!

For dessert-  I took a couple fresh HUGE peaches and sauted them with some brown sugar until they were softened and caramelized.   Serve that with vanilla ice cream!

(I made both of these the day before- dinner and dessert!)

I think you must have the coolest grandma in the world.  I LOVE Alkaline Trio and think the concept of the sweater is awesome.  I think Matt Skiba would approve! Smiley

27  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Easy and Yummy Wednesday Night Dinner! on: September 10, 2008 04:59:32 PM
I wanted to share my quick and easy dinner idea with you!

The rolls are frozen Ciabatta rolls and the green beans are fresh, snapped and lightly buttered.  The fruit is just sliced Bartlett pears.

The pasta is a mix of thick spaghetti and linguine (I didn't have enough of either and needed to use them up.  With this dish, the different textures actually work!

The drink is my "mocktini".... a cranberry juice cocktail, minus the alcohol (darn UTI!  No alcohol for me tonight!) Normally that would be a nice glad of red.

And now for the good stuff: the pasta sauce!

I took a clove of garlic and about 2 Tsp of olive oil and sauted.  I added about a cup of sliced baby bellas.  I sauted until the mushrooms browned a little, then added 3 Tsp of tomato juice (reserved from the can that goes in in a minute).  I cook until the mushrooms start to become al dente, then I add a can of plain diced tomatoes and a can of italian diced tomatoes.  Make sure you drain off as much liquid as possible!!!  I cook this until it starts to break down a little, then toss in a cup and a half of peeled and veined shrimp (I use frozen precooked that I rinse under water to thaw) and 1/3 Cup basil (chopped or ribboned or torn, however you like it works!).  I cook this just until the shrimp is warm, then it's good to go!  I toss it directly in the drained pasta.

One thing I sometimes do (when I'm in the mood for it!) is add a few Tsps of heavy cream.  It adds just a little something.  I normally add it in before the tomatoes.  It thickens up nicely!

It's so good, even my munchkin loves it!
