    The Dinner Recipe Thread

    I'm cooking dinner tonight and can't think of anything to make. Supply your favorite, good, but not over the top, weekday (or even weekend) recipes for those of us who are stumped on what to make for dinner might have some inspiration.

    Double Extra Secret Points if the recipe is fairly healthy! (trying to lose some of the Thanksgiving pounds before the Christmas pounds show up)




    (This space left blank for the future insertion of my Baked Ziti Pasta recipe that was only slightly borrowed from America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook)

    You like the fishes?

    For my spicy baked tilapia and squash, you will need:

    4 tilapia filets, or really any fish that you enjoy
    1 zucchini
    1 or 2 yellow squash
    jar of salsa, or your own homemade (I love Desert Pepper Corn and Black Bean)
    salt and pepper
    olive oil

    Cut up zucchini and squash. Saute in pan with a little bit of olive oil and almost a full jar of salsa (the rest for pre-dinner snack!) for about 6 minutes. Meanwhile, season both sides of your fishes with salt and pepper. Place 'em in a baking dish, drizzle a little more olive oil on them. Pile your sauteed squash and salsa mixture on top of fishes. Cover with foil. Place in pre-heated 375F oven for about 15-20 minutes, depending on how thick said fishes are (can take up to 25 minutes, DON'T OVERCOOK THEM) They are done when they flake with fork. Simple and healthy.

    6 pack of favorite beer, preferably in bottles.
    Bottle opener if needed.

    Open.
    Drink.
    Enjoy!

    That pretty much sums it up on this end.

    Pocket sandwiches

    1 pound top sirloin, cubed
    1 cup red wine
    3-4 T olive oil
    1-3 garlic cloves, minced
    1 T oregano
    1 t salt
    Pepper

    Combine ingredients and marinate for at least 1 hour

    Cook sirloin in pan on high heat (I like my meat a bit rare)

    Toast pocket pita bread, cut in half

    Fill pita with sirloin, lettuce, tomato, cheese, cucumber, bacon, sour cream or whatever floats your boat.

    If vegatarian, use chick peas to make falafel, use tahini instead of sour cream, skip the bacon (I dig on swine though).

    Too late for tonight, but allow me to share a nice recipe, perhaps for the weekend. This works fabulously well in a crock pot, but otherwise, just bake in a 350-degree oven for an hour or so.

    Moroccan Tagine (vegetarian, and nearly fat free, so it's healthy)
    Saute in 1 tsp oil till onion is translucent:
    1 small onion, diced
    1 carrot, diced
    1 stalk celery, diced
    1 butternut or acorn squash, 1" cubes, peeled
    1 smallish eggplant, 1" cubes, unpeeled
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 TBS minced ginger
    DON'T LET THE GARLIC OR GINGER BURN!
    When the onion is nearly translucent, add:
    1 cinnamon stick (yes, a cinnamon stick)
    1 tsp ground cumin
    2 tsp ground coriander

    let this mixture cook a few minutes to release the oils in the spices, then add:
    1c whole prunes (ahem- they call them dried plums now...)
    1/4 good black olives (oil-cured Sicilian are best- just don't use those horrid canned things)
    1 18oz can garbanzos
    1 28oz can tomatoes (diced or whole)
    1c vegetable stock or water


    Let everything cook down till you have a nice, rich broth. It shouldn't be soupy- more like a stew.
    Serve with couscous (the instant kind is fine, and dumb-easy to make, especially in a microwave).

    That sounds good. I did a very basic dinner tonight. I made a potato leek soup with a whipped basil olive oil and dill sauce on a pork chop. Oh some brussel sprouts too, I always love brussel sprouts.

    I will have to give yours a try sometime.

    You had me until Garbonzo's. I might have to steal this and rework it to my textures. The flavouring sounds freaking great.

    That's OK- feel free to substitute anything you want for the 'banzos- other kinds of beans work well, and if you want, you could use chicken or beef (cubed, though). I've done it with tempeh, and that works great. Yeah, the taste is out of this world- very dark and mysterious- well, Moroccan, I guess!

    hehe I just noticed your statement about prunes...funny thing, I buy them all the time, they are still called prunes up here, wonder if they adjusted the name to get rid of the taboo of it being for the elderly

    Mini potpie (WW says 2 pts per pie)

    Take a cupcake pan. Line with buscuits. Get fat free cream of chicken soup, a can of mixed veggies, and dice a few chicken breasts up. Mix up the chicken, veggies, and cream of chicken soup, then spoon into the stretched biscuit. Bake until golden brown (12-15 mins) and then scoop and serve.
