what's for dinner? 3-16-05

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I've run out of ideas.....what are you guys having?

We had crawfish ettoufee (sp?) for the past 2 nights and I don't feel like eating it again so I guess it's going in the freezer for now.

I kinda want some homemade tacos for dinner but don't feel like going to the store for ground meat.

I've got a freezer full of steak so guess that's what's for dinner!

Not sure what we're going to have......I think perhaps Lobster......

If not that, then maybe a hamburger!

That's a big difference!!

I've never had lobster, I've been afraid to try it because we cook with LOTS of spices here and I've heard that it's pretty much blanched and then dipped in butter. Is that true? What kind of spices are used to cook it?

We eat crawfish which is boiled in a huge pot with tons of spices and we add corn, mushrooms, potatos, sausage, hotdogs, onions, lemons, you know the enitre kitchen!

i ate lobster when i was little
when i worked at the restaurant, it was a fish restaurant.
So when it was lobster season, they boiled it took off all the meat.
(the meat is very precious none of it is to be wasted) they just arranged it on top of the pasta, or they made pasta sauce out of it .

Nothing much for me as my hair salon is having its grand opening and having wine and appetizers tonite. Drinking buckets of water as even though i've been exercising faithfully and watching food intake the scale seems to be at a standstill.

I hate to admit this, but: LEFTOVERS from Sunday's dinner at my parents house.

The Sunday before St. Patrick's, mom makes corned beef, cabbage, boiled potatoes, etc. Well she made SO MUCH that when we left, I wound up with this big ol box full of THREE pots full of the stuff!!! So every night I have been nuking Irish leftovers. I think my tummy is going to revolt by the time St. Pat's really does roll around; I been celebrating all week!

Oh Lobster rules. Haven't had it in a long time because it's expensive. Leftovers are way-cheaper!

I looked up a paella recipe, I wasn't sure what it was.

It sounds a lot like jambalaya, you can use any type of meat or seafood in any quantity and spice it up with seaonings and add rice.

I'll be having left over Chicken Divane....it's tasty. It's broccoli, then browned chicken breast in a cassorole dish, with a sauce (cream of chicken soup, yellow curry, lemon juice, a bit of mayo) over it....then some grated cheese on the top and bake....served over rice. SO DELICIOUS.

Left over sloppy joes for the third day in a row. I live alone so I try to make something that will last a few days. It should get me through tonight and tomorrow, but man oh man is it getting boring.

I know what u mean!!

I think I will probably have cereal or scrambled eggs!! I tend to make things that are SIMPLE and done FAST... How exciting my dinner sounds compared to the others here.... I MIGHT get Hot Spinach and Cheese dip with chips from the Cheesecake Factory tonite though cuz I am babysitting some kids and their parents are going to Cheesecake FActory and asked what i'd like so I'm keeping my fingers crossed for that!

Not sure. Rob's a bit under the weather this week, so it kinda depends on what he feels like. Last night was tomato soup -- comfort food. There's some left, unless he has it for lunch. We'll see, I guess.

I know this sounds wierd, but I call it hot dog stew. (I use veggie hot dogs for me and regular ones for my BF) Anyway, sautee green peppers, onions and tomatoes with sliced hot dogs. Add paprika, S & P. Serve with rice or any kind of starch.
See y'all later. I'm off to "Curves."

It sounds kinda gross but it is good, You mix sour cream, scallions, green pepper, cumin, cayenne pepper, a little garlic powder some lime juice and about three cups of cooked chicken. You put them in semi hollowed out croissants , top with shredded cheese and cook for about 15 mins
