hello i'm new to this group. fresh out of divorce { well if you
can call
that fresh } any way i have a 7 year old girl hanna and a 6 year
old boy
josh . trying to make sure we as mom and dad keep our kids lives
as
normal
as possible we have joint phys custody and i'm confident in my
parenting
abilities the reason for my first post is i need some new idea's
for
cooking
let's face it mom cooked and left me with hamburger's and such .
now i
need
to step up in this area any ideas will be apperciated

Welcome! Sounds like you have the right idea WRT the kids.

Paul F is really good with recipe ideas. I cook a lot of chicken
and
turkey, the occasional brisket, corned beef, or roast/stew. It
gets
boring after awhile.

Okay, okay.....one I tried the other night that was quick and
good........lightily floured (and sage) chicken breasts sauted in a
frying
pan, when the chicken is done, you take 1/4-1/2 cup of dry
vermouth pour
it in the pan and cook into the scraping until about half of it is
gone,
then add a table spoon or two of lemon juice just before taking it
off the
heat......that mixture is poured of the chicken...........then if you
really
have time on your hands you can top it off with the zest from the
lemon.
:-)


And another one..........bow tie pasta.........equal amounts of sun
dried tomatoes and green olives.............run both the olives and
tomatoes through a food processor (not at the same time :-) ) oh and
make sure they are pitted olives ;-) to a fine chop consistency. 1/2
cup heavy cream heated in a sauce pan, then add the tomatoes and olives
and a tiny bit of olive oil, cook until the cream starts to turn pink,
then add 1/2 cup of the water from the pasta, then mix with the
pasta......makes a great side dish.


Geez Paul, when are you moving in?

Christine

Back off he's mine! lol


HA! You snooze you lose.

Ok more seriously... Learn to cheat... I do... I make 2 huge

dinners
over
the weekend... Like monster roasts or make double batches of things
like
spaghetti sauce or whatever I want to make and I put it in the

freezer
for
the week...

Left overs......you must be kidding..................


Nope no kidding... Sauces do really well in the freezer... Seems to

take as
long to make the pasta as it does to defrost and heat the sauce LOL


Cooking is like sex.....sure your can get it finished in a couple of
minutes...............but the fun is in bringing the experience to
fruition. ;-)


True, but the thing about leftovers, is you can heat it up and eat it again.

Yes.....bit if it is good enough....there shouldn;t be anything left
heehee

It's not the time.....it is the experience ;-)


There's not... It's good to the last drop... I've even seen a few licking
out the pot Which is why I make a double batch and then hide it under
the vegetables in the freezer *grin* they NEVER look there... Plus Real
sauce takes HOURS to make... I start that pot 8am on a saturday morning so
by 7pm we are sitting down to a decent meal... There's always fresh
appetizers -- Could use some of your spice rack for that

You are oh so right... But you know -- a Quickie in the middle of the week
or at the end of the day can be a good thing too as long as the quality
is there then the experience is always good

Geez Paul, when are you moving in?

I wouldn't want to give up my kitchen here heehee


Hahah trapped! That solves it then, I'm renting a Uhaul. We'll be

there in
2 weeks, start grocery shopping.


well it is a good thing I got the extra bedroom finished.........but I
guess I will have to delay the sauna and build the attached garage :-)
wouldn't want you to have to park the car outside in the winter :-)


Oh that's alright, I have a remote starter, so add a hot tub and we both
win. lol


The hot tub is on the list....as well as the in ground pool ;-)

Long isn't always the answer... Sometimes they have to be wide too to
accommodate the spice inside
