The "What Did You Have For Dinner?" Thread

Alright Kids! We're mostly all here for a reason, so let's share our meals with each other, along with how you made em!

I'll start off.

Tonight I cut class and made Spaghetti with shrimp in a spicy pomodoro sauce. (Serves 3)

6 oz Barilla Whole Grain Spaghetti
1/2 pound cooked Shrimp
1 Can Italian peeled tomatoes
Minced Garlic
Onion Powder
Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
Pecorino Romano Cheese
Salt
Pepper
EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
Dried Basis Leaves

Drop a tablespoon of EVOO in a high-side sautee pan and heat over medium heat. Drop a teaspoon of minced garlic into the oil and let it simmer. As the garlic starts to brown, pour the can of tomatoes into the pan. Using a spatula, cut up the tomatoes. Turn the heat up to medium high. Add a shake of onion powder, three shakes of crushed red pepper flakes, two shakes of pepper, one shake of dried basil leaves, and salt liberally. Continue to stir. Add two handfuls of Pecorino Romano cheese and fold in. Finally, add your shrimp and reduce heat to a simmer.

Meanwhile, you should be cooking your pasta per the directions (6 minutes to al dente).

Strain, and return to pot. Pour sauce and shrimp over and stir in. Serve and enjoy!

Chicken parmigiana hero and a coke. I was starving after my ride and didn't care.

1/2 rotisserie chicken with fries, gravy, ceasar salad, and Coke Zero. Ate it in a restaurant while waiting to have snow tires mounted on the car. I'm still waiting for my studded tires for my bike. I'll probably treat myself then, too, since I'll be mounting them myself.

Dang, this is making my whatevers-in-the-fridge-mixed-together bowl of leftovers sound even more pathetic. But it was on the table within 5 minutes of walking in the front door at 8:15pm and it was cheap.
Acorn squash, sliced up baked potato, homemade 15-bean chili (with a little lean meat), pico de gallo, and a slice of cheddar. I liked it ... but the OP's spaghetti w/ shrimp sounds awesome. I don't suppose there was garlic bread and a green salad ? Mmmm.

Curried vegetables with langoustines, garlic pan fried shrimp, and garlic bread with Robusto cheese.

1 fresh bamboo shoot (rough chopped)
5 Nantes carrots (peeled, cut)
1 small onion (rough chopped)
5 green onions, diced with some greens
5 baby Dutch potoatoes, quartered
1/2 package frozen langoustine tails (from TJs)
2 cans lite coconut milk
2T red curry paste
garlic, basil, black pepper (fresh ground), cilantro to taste

Sautee veggies in 1T black pepper oil until carrots/onions begin to caramelize. Add coconut milk, curry paste and seasonings. Stir on stovetop in French oven until homogeneous. Middle oven rack @ 350F for 90 minutes.

Butterfly shrimp and garlic bread are pretty self explanatory.

No, I don't claim it's particularly healthy or low calorie. I ride at least 30 miles a day, so I don't really give a crap what I eat for dinner.

Beef stew

1 lb lean stewing beef mixed with a tablespoon of seasoned flour. Then browned in 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Then add in a roughly chopped onion. Add couple of cups of beef stock and simmer for an hour. Add 2 large chopped carrots and 2 large stalks of celery chopped. Add water if the stew is starting to stick at the bottom. Simmer 1/2 hour then add a few potatoes cut into cubes. Simmer for another 15 to 20 minutes. Serve with steamed broccoli.

The leftovers will be even better tomorrow.

Don't feel well and that might be my favorite meal in the world. Not sure why.

1 barbecued chicken breast w/Sweet Baby Ray's Honey BBQ Sauce and steamed broccoli with a few sprays of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, which is actually incredibly easy to believe it's not butter.

Grilled Pheasant and squirell legs (that I harvested the night before) with home grown lima beans and tossed salad.

Pluck the bird, clean, skin, and quarter. Check carefully for BB's, remove them if you find any. Rub lightly with salt and let sit over night. Brush with olive oil then grill over low heat until done. Squirell legs: skin it, dress it, remove rear legs. Let sit over night in a salt water solution to remove some of the game taste from it.

Boil the lima beans, salad came from a bag.

half a dominos pizza, half of one of their philly subs, 2 beers and half of one of their cinna stick logs. Yep, i am no longer losing weight but it sue was good.

On a unrelated note i was about to go through a puddle at the bottom of a sidewalk and decided to put my feet up so they didnt get wet. There was a small hole under that puddle and i bounced a bit. When i did i bent my seat rails down about an inch and a half.

Leftover carne asada with guacamole, salsa, and a sprinkling of cheddar cheese. A few chips for crunch but not too many.

This was after a 1hr ride so I eat a moderate amount of whatever I feel like.

OK, so I understand you brine the squirrel same as any other varmint, which rids it of some gamey-ness. But how do you cook it to avoid the greasiness? (Maybe it's just me, but I find squirrel to be pretty greasy.)

I typically grill the squirrel on ole Propane Jane. Like any other wild game (except venison) I tend to over cook it as a means of sterilization. I know it's over kill, but when I grill squirrel legs beyond well done they have never been greasy. Chewy but not greasy.

You're missing out on some of the finer things if you haven't spent time over on the Appalachian side of the state, sampling small town regional cuisine.

Last Sunday's paella. Had leftovers for lunch Monday and Tuesday. Made it on the grill with chicken and chorizo sausage. Those are roasted tomatoes on the top with green beans. Awesome!

Edit: No squirrel, but I have made it with rabbit.

Romaine mixed lettuce, grape tomatoes, celery stalk chopped, sliced mushrooms, all tossed together with about 1/3 lb of cubed turkey breast, with lowfat raspberry / balsamic dressing. A glass of skim milk, a whole-grain english muffin, toasted with just a bit of margarine and cinnamon on top. 1 pear for dessert.
