Darn, I thought those were olives.
 
We ate at Coco's.  We had several friends that said it was good.  Never again.  It was the first and last time.  Nothing had any flavor or texture.  Texture is important.
 
I had a salad, grilled cod, rice and cole slaw.  Yuck.
 
Thank you for the recipe.

    Felix...is that straight from the crock pot...???
     
    It looks good...what sauce is on the rice...???
     
    My chicken is still frozen...so plan B tonight...
     
    BTW...that last photo came out as 166Kb and 359x600 pixels so it HAS been reduced somewhere along the way, which IS good...
     
    Mar...when you have a bad dinner, do you turn right around and do a  "make good" at a favorite place...???

        Yup, straight from the crock pot. The sauce on the rice is the barbecue sauce the chicken cooked in all day.
         
        Mar, I would have LOVED to have olives instead of peas! But my mother is under the impression that olives are not a side dish, unless I make my olive salad. Silly woman.

          Tonight I reheated the leftover pork fu yung, served with parsnips sliced and tossed with olive oil, garlic powder and cajun seasoning, then roasted for about 25 minutes.

            Pork chops done chile verde style:
             

             
            Cut up and browned the pork chops with a little salt and pepper.  Stirred around a sliced onion and some minced garlic in the same pan and then put everything into a pot.
             
            Into the pot went a can of Hatch diced green chilies, a diced up red pepper that I roasted yesterday, some comino, Mexican oregano, chicken stock and a bunch of La Victoria Mild Green Sauce.
             
            Let it come to a boil and then simmered it until the pork was soft, but not falling apart.
             
            I think this is my best concoction yet!
             
            Tasted like I was dining in New Mexico!

                Outdoor cooking called on account of rain...
                 
                Cajun hot link and toasted seeded bun, cooked indoors...
                 
                My chicken thighs were thawed and put in a brine for overnight...hopefully will be dinner tomorrow night if I have any energy left after I get home...

                  I got a Le Creuset Dutch oven for Christmas so I had to give it a proper inauguration.  Braising lamb shanks in it now with onions and garlic.  The accompaniments will be garlic mashed potatoes and green beans.

                    Well, at least a  couple of  Roadfooders are eating lamb tonight.  We are having lamb and sausage cassolet, served with braised onion and bacon brussel sprouts  and  French  Bread.

                        cooked onions that were cooked under the brisket

                        small rolls stacked with tender slices of brisket, BBQ sauce, onions for sandwiches, cole slaw and develed eggs........

                          I am so in love with my new Le Creuset that I'm finding excuses to use it over and over so tonight is chicken stew with scallion/roasted red pepper dumplings.

                                  I grabbed a Thai chicken wrap from the sports bar across the alley, since instead of the two-hour sushi dinner break I had planned I got 45 minutes.

                                      I have been on a diet for the last 3 weeks, I broke it for a day, my choice was a New York Style Pizza. So that was the meal for the day, the picture is a pepperoni slice on a dinner plate, just to give you an idea of the size of each slice. Was it worth it.....YES............

                                              Tonight's dinner was aided by a package of frozen noodles with "flavor" pack.
                                               
                                              I made Yakisoba my way...  pork belly, cabbage and onions with added salt, sugar and cayenne.  A pinch of each.

                                                Shrimp and Grits with Garlic Cheese Bread - it was just one of those nights - got home from work with no idea what was for dinner and searched the fridge freezer and pantry for something different - then I saw some frozen Gulf shrimp and remembered two recipes in the last Southern Living magazine I received - combined the best of the both of them and - there we had it - some pretty good Shrimp & Grits.  It's not something I want to eat very often but it was just right tonight.

                                                  I made Singapore Chicken, using cauliflower this time instead of broccoli or a mixture of the two.

                                                    Sweet and Sour?  Is the chicken minced?  It looks good.  If you haven't figured it out yet, I love food that covers my plate.
                                                     
                                                    Recipe?

                                                      It might not be up yet, as I just posted it tonight. But the link should work by tomorrow if it isn't already. They're pretty darn quick.
                                                       
                                                      http://www.recipezazz.com/recipe/singapore-chicken
                                                       
                                                      It's curry with a soy sauce and chicken broth sauce. Cubed chicken, about one inch. AND...it's diabetic. I tweaked it some, but it originally came from the ADA website.
                                                       
                                                      This is from the last time I made it, with a mixture of broccoli and cauliflower. It's prettier.

                                                        They both look good.  Thanks for the link.

                                                          Gah. Something was wrong with the recipe, so it'll be a while before it's approved. Here:

                                                          1 medium onion, chopped
                                                          1 tablespoon olive oil
                                                          1 cup fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided
                                                          1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch cubes
                                                          2 teaspoons mild curry powder, or to taste
                                                          1/8 teaspoon black pepper
                                                          4 tablespoons salted roast peanuts, coarsely chopped
                                                          2 tablespoons soy sauce (I use Maggi seasoning instead)
                                                          1 tablespoon cornstarch
                                                          2 cups small cauliflower or broccoli florets (or a combination)
                                                          1 cup coarsely diced red bell pepper
                                                          2 cups cooked brown rice

                                                          Heat olive oil and 1 tablespoon chicken broth in a large nonstick skillet. Step
                                                          Add onion and cook over medium heat until softened, about 5 minutes. Step
                                                          Push the onion to one side of the pan; add chicken, curry powder and pepper and cook until chicken is no longer pink, about 8 minutes. Step
                                                          Dissolve cornstarch in soy sauce; add mixture to pan along with remaining chicken broth. Step
                                                          Add broccoli/cauliflower and red pepper and cook an additional 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Step
                                                          Add peanuts and cook until chicken is completely done, about another 2-3 minutes. Step
                                                          Serve over 1/4 cup brown rice.
