I'm also going simple tonight.

I can't wait to try out the 8-inch Viking Chef's knife that I WON!

I'll be making Thai Chicken Massaman if the canned coconut milk hasn't spoiled.  The last can separated into water and fat instead of coconut milk and fat.

If I do make it I'll serve it over plain white rice.  If I find where I put my camera I'll even take a picture if it turns out.

Try it out on your Mayor!!!!

    The knife or the chicken?

        I was just reminded we normally eat dinner 45 minutes ago. I've been baking cookies all day (eight dozen down, WAY more than that to go) so I forgot. So...I'm defrosting some beef stew in the microwave and calling it good.

          Finished eating.
           
          Went downstairs, diced up the chicken, did my sauteing, boiling and stirring and totally forgot about the new knife that is still up here in front of my monitor.
           
          The coconut milk was okay, but I really didn't like the spices in the Massaman paste.  I'll have to try a different brand if I make it again.

            Thin crust pizza at Lisa's on the east side of Milwaukee, and then a comedy show-with my best friend Sheila!

                Today I win! I'm doing a two-show concert day, so we got catering between shows. Steak (and for a wonder they actually had rare), salmon with dill sauce, twice-baked potatoes, steamed broccoli, sauteed mushrooms with garlic sauce, salad, and sourdough bread. With either lemon cheesecake or a chocolate-blueberry trifle for dessert.

                  Thank you. 
                   
                  I'm loving this thread!  It's getting me into the kitchen more which I enjoy.
                   
                  I made the Chicken Marsala tonight with Capellini and Cucumber Salad.  I hand grated Parmigiano Reggiano on top of the Capellini after I took the pictures.  Can you see the parsley?

                    Mar...IF you make enough Martini's, you won't need the recipe (looking at yer mouse pad)...
                     
                    Last night I ate dinner in town...a 3 taco plate at the Mexican restaurant, not the taco wagon, (we have 2 Mexican venues in our tiny village of 1,100 population)...
                     
                    I get the most interesting blank stares from the waitresses when I say "No Cebolla"  (no onions)...
                     
                    I need to remind myself that the only person that habla de lingo is the cook in the back...

                        My mouse pad is actually a flexible cutting board.  Works better than any mouse pad I've ever had.

                          Porterhouse (32 oz)  pan seared and finished in the oven. With Brussel Sprouts sauted in the buttery steak drippings after the searing session.
                          Saturday is a red-meat day in the Bowen Kitchen.

                            Tonight we're getting delivery from a local place that makes the best pizza I have ever had the great good fortune to put in my mouth. They have exactly one location, and you need to order at least 90 minutes before you want to eat because they're that busy. Totally worth it!
                             
                            We do this every year the night before the family Christmas party, since our oven is always in use (I'm two loaves of bread and 18 dozen cookies into today's round of baking) and we don't want to have to put leftovers anywhere. However, my mouth will NOT stop watering over those porterhouse!

                              If those porterhouses are from the same butcher that Al usually gets his meat-Bob and I had the pleasure of sharing a couple with Al and Janet this spring.Truly the best I have had-and they know how to cook them just right!!!!

                                  Tonights dinner was a double hunk-o-meat (Noo Yawk steak)...
                                   

                                   
                                  Seasoned so well it needed nothing but a knife and fork...
                                   

                                   
                                  With lots of tasty natural juices, putting ANY bbq sauce on it would be anti-climatic...
                                   
                                  It was just the right slighty pink inside, and the slices did the perfect "accordian" when pulled / stretched...
                                   
                                  Cooked with the middle burner on low, and the 2 side burners on high, and the hood down...total cooking time was roughly 25 minutes...
                                   
                                  Yum...!!!

                                        Today was the family Christmas party at my house. Ham, cheesy potatoes, pickles, olives, cheese, summer sausage, pineapple-mandarin orange fluff salad, bacon-wrapped little smokies, about ten kinds of cookies, four kinds of fudge, two kinds of fruit bread, and lemon meringue and pecan pie for dessert.

                                              Ann, I hope that you get rid of that black plague.

                                                I had that plague a couple of weeks ago. Zicam and Emergen-C and Mucinex knocked it out of me in a few days, but it was miserable while it was here. Hope you feel better soon, Ann!
                                                 
                                                Today my niece and I hit the Hangover Cafe (or, as it is actually called, Anna's House) which is a local breakfast place. T'was fabulous as always. Scrambled eggs, fried potatoes with onion, two bacon, two sausage, ham, three silver dollar pancakes (they serve actual butter and real maple syrup), the most amazing sugar bread ever, and an endless supply of actual Coca-Cola. Oh yeah, and English muffin toast. I need more sleep before my brain can come out of its post-drinking stupor. But my niece only turns 30 once!

                                                  Feeling a tad better, kind of...but that meal looks awesome, felix.
                                                  Thanks, Mar.

                                                      There's been so much of the holiday and work rush that I'm guilty of not having a decent meal since last Saturday night when we had an excellent T Bone, a shrimp cocktail and baked potato.
                                                      Tonight I was craving a down home meal - so it was hamburger steaks in Creole red gravy, smashed potatoes, green beans and steamed cabbage.

                                                        I ventured to taco smell tonight......going out of town in the morning, so there is no food in the house. Wrong choice!

                                                          Went simple and very low carb tonight to try to make up for the last few days. Parmesan tilapia with sides of beets and French-style green beans. The tilapia was supposed to be broiled, but the top heating element in my oven went out so I had to bake it using only the bottom heating element. Could've been worse, but it's definitely been better.
