Turkey Lurkey! Part 1

So, I guess it's almost Thanksgiving. WAIT a minute. Thanksgiving is OVER. Oops, I started this post way back when, but now it's long gone. I'll still tell you what I made - 4 yummy concoctions: The Dressing, squash casserole, pumpkin pie, and a pumpkin roll.

Anyone remember Tortillas on Ponce?

I loved that place. Somehow . . . can't remember how . . . I got their recipe for their green salsa. Tonight we had it on top of quesadillas. (Although, as Ella said, they would have been better with sour cream too, but we were all out.)

Mmmmm . . . Oatmeal

If you've spent much time around me, you know that I have oatmeal every day. I can be somewhat particular (ha!) so here's how to make oatmeal MY way.

Chicken Parmesan

This is one of my favorite meals to make. I often make this for people who come over for dinner. At Daphne's suggestion, I last served this with Caesar salad. Mmmmm.

This blog ongoing . . . (and curry)

I think I'll use this forum to put all my favorite recipes and old standbys as I make them. Or just to talk about food.

The other night, I used Curry Simple's green curry sauce to make an awesome dinner for me & John (not the kids). I started by taking rice noodles, putting them in a 9x9 brownie pan with hot water to soak for 20 minutes. Then, I took extra firm tofu (I usually use firm, but they were out), cut it into little bite sized squares, and sauteed them in olive oil until nicely browned. I added strips of red and yellow peppers too. Then I added broccoli, a 1/4 cup of water, and put the lid on (to steam the broccoli). Once that seemed cooked to my liking, I added the curry sauce ( and the rice noodles. (Mmmm I love those rice noodles.) It seemed awfully soupy (maybe from the water I added), so I let it cook down a bit. (Next time I think I'll keep it nice and saucy.) I cooked jasmine rice on the side, but with the noodles, we really didn't need it. It was SO good. I was bummed there weren't many left overs.
