What's for Dinner ~ Monday Feb 11th

Some sort of stir-fry chicken for me, with Jasmine rice.

2. Lentil soup

I've been trying to remember the spicing a friend told me for the soup they sell at their cafe (Mediterranean food) and only remember the use of cumin. So, I've been using another spice mix he told me of cinnamon and sumac. Probably a couple of teaspoons of each in 8+ cups of liquid. About the same amount of cumin, too. Salt was about a teaspoon (I think, as I made it without following a recipe.)

Two cups of red lentils, some veggie-stock cubes for eight cups of water, one medium-sized onion, six carrots, a can of diced tomatoes (my friends use fresh, though the peels often separate in the cooking.) Oh yeah, I added some white pepper, too, maybe a teaspoon. And then cooked it all for almost two hours as they keep theirs on simmer all day, and it's perfect if you get it in the evening

11. Leftovers for dinner, but here is what I did for lunch...

I cut about 20 cherry tomatoes in half or quarters, threw in a third of a can of black beans (rinsed), a half can of corn, a chopped avocado, gave a few good squirts of a lime juice bottle, and then topped it all with diced boiled, chilled shrimp. Yummy stuff!

Dinner is same as yesterday... Chicken Cordon Bleu Risotto!

12. Lebanese chicken and cous cous...

The chicken is marinated in a yogurt/lemon/oil + spice mixture of Lebanese Mixed Spice and extra Cardamom. Along with the cous cous, I made a very garlicky yogurt and lemon sauce, with feta and greek olives on the side.

Something about it always makes me hungry again right away (maybe it's the spices), but I have leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

16. Porketta roast.

We had mashed potatoes, porketta gravy and steamed cauliflower and broccoli. The local butcher shop had it on sale so I picked up a fairly large one - 4.5 pounds. The leftover pork freezes well and will make delicious sandwiches with sweet pepper relish at a later date when I'm too busy to cook.

We're refinishing our solid pine kitchen cabinets after 46 years of wear and tear and two kids. DH got a friend who's a professional painter to help sand and stain them so that's a huge help.
