Sweetie B's been sick, so we had to cancel our little Sunday dinner party with old friends. I made the chicken and mushroom lasagna anyway...
Comfort Food Exraordinaire!! It's got grueyere, ricotta and romano cheeses, shitakis and shredded roast chicken.



Yup- I made 2 medium instead of 1 xtra-large, and stuck it in the freezer. Fingers crossed it'll reconstitute.

Looks good ATP. I bought an Archer Farms Chicken Tikka Masala boxed dinner from Target a while back. Came with Basmati Rice, Manjo Chutney, Curried Potatoes, and Masala sauce - you add the chicken.

I thought it was pretty good, but I've never tasted authentic Chicken Tikka Masala so I have no point of reference

I keep taking pictures of what I've been making, to post here, but they turn out looking horrible (as in, "Are ya really gonna eat that?!"). I guess it would be cheating just to write about what we're making, huh?

Hi MadDogMike,
Do you have any Indian Restaurants where you live? since you like spicy dishes I think you would like Indian food.
But those store bought Frozen, boxed foods etc. are nowhere close to real Indian food, even those Trader Joe frozen plates are sub standard.
It really needs to be fresh prepared.

Ah, yes, the taking of good pictures...either they come out crappy or you forget to snap or whatever... it aint easy!

I've been resisting the urge to undermine the present tense-ness of the thread as I read it in the title. Let's ask the original thread monger: past meals included? My sense is you are wondering about the most recent dinner "made", but I could be wrong.

I have many nice shots of meals in the past (better camera) and haven't been cooking as much as I'd like, or cooking the same things (yes, making another pot, as I type, of medicinal grade chicken soup) over and over.

What say you, ATP?

Nope, no Indian restaurants within 100 miles. But, I have something better I work with a gal from India, she brings me lunch from time to time and I love it! This week it was curried goat with okra and potatoes - yummy!

As you wish, Amy, I say go for it as things have been a bit slow on the thread as of late, but could you guys label it as past meals, or such.

MadDog, it sounds like you are getting the real stuff there, glad to hear it.

Question for you all? if you had a Restaurant, what kind of food would you serve?
It has been a few years since I worked at any Restaurants, but my love of ethnic dishes would be high on the list.
But my European background would also be a factor.
Then again,comfort food & BBQ rock! I guess I just love food!

Welcome Haole'akamai,
Pictures are a big help considering the subject, but I think I need a new camera also,
doing the best with an older digital camera that I can. but I don't like how they come out much of the time, I have even not posted a few times due to the crappy pictures.

But Haole'akamai, I say go for it, you can only get better as time goes along.

Game on!

A few NJ high school friends I hadn't heard from in 35 years came to CA last January for a little catching up. We grilled bacon wrapped scallops over wood chunks outdoors, and drank a lot of wine while we waited. They were giant scallops, and so rich that we could only eat 1 or 2 each. That meant LOTS of leftovers. Heaven. No seasonings- just scallops and bacon.
