WND – Cajun Chicken Salad

October 25, 2007

Firstly. Go Sox!

I live in Boston, I’m pretty sure I’m legally obligated to be excited that the Red Sox made it to the World Series (and won last night’s game 13-1).

Okay, moving on.

A remuda is a herd of horses. Did you know this? Why do I know this?

October 4, 2007

Devilled Eggs Hard-boiled eggs
Tomatoes & Mozzarella

SND – Couscous Salad!

September 19, 2007

It’s pretty forgiving – though this last time it needed just bit more spice. I overcompensated a bit for putting in too much cayenne last time. Oh well. Read on beyond the jump for a recipe that convinced my father that couscous wasn’t always a big, gloopy mess.

Couscous Salad with Corn and Red Pepper
Roasted Tomatoes
Pan-Seared Cod (or Portabella Mushroom) with Chile-Lime Butter

WND – Fried Chicken Dinner

September 13, 2007

When I was little the rule was you could ask for whatever you wanted for your birthday dinner within reason. Translated, this meant that while my father did not get wild boar in port sauce, I did get fried chicken every year for my birthday. I still only make fried chicken about once year. It’s not because I think it’s necessarily terrible for you, or even because it’s that hard to make. Mostly it’s just because it’s messy and I hate cleaning up afterwards.

That being said, there are days when you just crave fried chicken and this Sunday when I was making the weekly grocery shopping list was one of them.

So Dinner this week was:

Fried Chicken
Sliced tomatoes (beautiful striped heirloom tomatoes)
