Lentil Sweet Potato Stew

Made a big ol' batch of this again.  Some for Amy, some for Mo and Chris.

Sunday, December 15, 2013


See earlier in the blog for the link.  Things we did this time:

- Used steak again
- We had seaweed, which was tasty with it.  We used daikon radish instead of sprouts.  It was only ok.
- We again used crimini mushrooms.
- We attempted to get the crispy rice bits.  They sort of crisped, but they got more chewy than crispy.

Warm Chorizo Spinach Salad

Yum. For the 2 of us this time. We used 3/4 lb chorizo and a medium red onion. We cooked the onion a bit more than he said so it was soft.  Maybe better this way.  Also, it would have been good to have some feta or queso fresco to sprinkle on top.

Chicken Korma

Jamie Oliver, pg 74.  We had a half jar of patak's curry paste that we used instead of making his korma paste. I think it was pretty much by the book after that. Turned out well.

French Onion Soup

Yum.  Used about 4 decent sized onions.  Could have used one or two more probably, but it was still delicious.  And we toasted the bread and then melted the cheese on top of it since one of us has an aversion to soggy bread.

Chicken Cacciatore Stoup

Rachel Ray, pg 61.  Recipe #68.  Basically followed the recipe exactly.  Was pretty satisfying.  The taters were old, and they needed way long to cook for some reason.  Peppers, mushrooms, chicken, tomatoes.

Shrimp Taco Dorado

Amor Y Tacos, pg 90.  Made it pretty much as they said.  Was pretty delicious.  The shrimp wasn't the greatest quality unfortunately though.  Extra tasty guac.

Turkey Barley Soup

Based loosely on:

We had a 16 lb turkey carcass and we made stock the day before (yielded 6 quarts).

Used 1 cup barley, simmered covered for a half hour.  Added 6 sliced carrots and 5 or so sliced celery stalks, along with whatever shredded turkey.  Simmered for another half hour or so until veggies were tender.  Turned out pretty well.
