What's For Dinner?

One thing that I really enjoy doing during this time of recovery when I feel well is exploring the culinary delights that I normally would not have the time for except maybe on a weekend.

For dinner this evening our menu was as such and I must say in the words of Ned Flanders (Homer Simpson's neighbor) that is was "scrumdillyumptous"!

Bear Creek clam chowder (in packet- add clams, milk, water) -with sourdough bread
Zatarain's New Orleans Cajun style spice mix for salmon cakes
My own concoction/version of stuffed mushrooms with long grain veggie rice topped with mozzarella cheese

Since returning from vacation and when feeling better, here are the other cuisines I have cooked up:

Mango Pepper (red and green) Chicken Fajitas cooked with fresh cilantro
Ground Turkey Meatballs cooked in a pressure cooker with stewed tomatoes, garlic, carrots, fresh cilantro, red pepper, tomato soup and mashed potatoes on the side
Clam Chowder
Oyster Stew
Keibasa sausage sauted with peppers and onion, baked beans, and Mexican rice added
Veggie Pizza (zucchini, red pepper, mushroom, onion, tomato)
Honey Wheat Pancakes with fresh strawberries and whipped cream
Applesauce Honey Wheat Pancakes
Potato and Egg Beater Frittata with mushroom and red pepper baked in the oven
Lemon Meriegn Pie

Okay, I thought I was a good cook, but I bow to the Becks! I agree with angel- "Damn, that sounds good!"

I'm making old-style red beans and rice with red pepper and basil turkey sausage tomorrow night.

LOL YUP!

Right now I am totally enjoying one of my peach mango shakes. God I love them!

Last friday I cooked Thai: Green Curry Eggplant with Chicken, Red Pepper and Shittake Mushrooms.

I also cooked the Keibasa sausage again but this time with pineapple caribbean rice, zucchini, and red pepper.

Monday I made some cheddar broccoli soup with ham that was really good and today I am going to make clam chowder again.

I am trying to get in alot of dairy (calcium).

I want to make some of the several bean soups I have here but right now I am experiencing the worst gas of my life! I am afraid of what the beans will do to me! I feel like an old man as I am farting EVERYWHERE I go and it is uncontrollable. That dang gas-ex works like crap!
