I'll cook you whatever you want for dinner!

O.K., not quite since that's impossible, but pretend you are coming to our house for dinner tonight. I will cook you anything you want, from scratch. What would be on the menu?

This is my desperate plea for dinner ideas.

One of two things

Old-Bay Shrimp

Fill pan with beer of choice and add old bay seasoning. Add shrimp. Cook until shrimp are orange in color. Enjoy. Add ketchup/horseraddish (sp) sauce if desired.

Black Beans and Rice

Cook rice and black beans. Put layer of cooked rice on plate. Put layer of black beans on top of rice. Add letuce, cheese, onions, salsa, sour cream, and tomatos as desired.

As you can see, I am very simple when it comes to food.

For me, the important thing is yeast rolls, fresh from the oven. If you've got those, nothing else matters!

Well, not true -- a really spectacular dessert counts for a lot, too. Here's an easy one I used to make: Make a simple sheet cake, lemon flavor -- poppy seeds optional. Get two or three jars of "lemon curd" and use that as frosting, then chill the cake. Gently melt some seedless raspberry jelly in a saucepan, not letting it get too hot. Plate up the cake and pour the raspberry sauce over the top of each slice, then toss on some fresh raspberries or blackberries. It looks much harder than it is!

Yeast rolls and a huge chef salad sounds good!

Your dessert sounds like a fruity Boston Cream Pie... yummy!

I looked up this recipe and it looks great! Husband loves pasta dishes. I actually made a sauce last night that sounds similar, with crumbled Italian sausage meat, but with just parmesan sprinked on top.

Great ideas!

Yes, please!

All this talk of chicken made me hungry for it. The ones I get that are really good (veggie fed, free range, 3 lb.) only come in on Fridays so we are having chicken Friday night!

Saturday, I'll make a pasta dish...

The beef won out, and Carol_Petunia's yeast rolls. It's chilly and damp here so I couldn't grill, and wanted something warm, so I made beef stew. And yeast rolls, the best I've ever made... yeast breads are really difficult for me.

My daughter made me this blue ribbon, kind of faded from the sun, at one of my yeast attempts:

I make a mean enchilada; I use chile peppers imported from New Mexico for the sauce. I wish I could buy the Amy's family pack frozen cheese enchiladas in Canada! Those are SO good.

I make my own flour tortillas, also out of necessity. The best store bought ones here are a brand named, "Olafson's" no kidding!

Ok, kind of long but thought the more accurate the better. So easy after the first time!
Spanish Rice and Beans
Beans
Saute in pot 2-3 tablespoons veg oil, med-high heat
sliced red onion (half of med-small sized)
1-2 garlic cloves chopped
couple green pepper slices
chopped cilantro 1/5 cup
Saute 2 minutes then add choice of beans. 2 cans, I always use Goya, favorite is pink beans, also black, red, 1 pink 1 red kidney, pinto....all great for this recipe!
Optional but adds a lot.....1 packet Goya sazon
1 packet chicken bouillon
Add 1/2-1 cup water, cover and simmer stirring occasionally, 30-35 min.
Rice
Saute in pot 2 tablespoons veg oil 3-4 min, med/high heat
fine chopped red onion
chopped garlic
chopped cilantro
Optional 1 sazon and 1 chicken boiullon (yellow rice)
Add 1 1/2 cups rice and saute dry 3-4 minutes stirring
a few green olives
2 3/4 to 3 cups water, cover and simmer med 15-20 min
Spanish Stewed Chicken
Saute in pan 3-4 tablespoons veg oil,med/high heat
1 med/lrg red onion sliced and 1 teaspoon sugar for 3-4 min
then add 2-3 chopped garlic cloves
few green pepper slices
chopped cilantro
2 more minutes
Add chicken breast, thighs, drums, wings (skinless) Adobo and sear both sides
Optional 1 Sazon, 1 chicken bouillon, Worcestershire sauce (big part of flavor)
1 cup water, simmer on med flip occasionally 30-35 min!
You have a great sauce for rice, potatoes as well!
Really hope you try and enjoy! I have turned so many people on to it. Dated a Dominican back in the day and his mom taught me, she didn't even speak English!
