Dinner at Kincaid’s

February 28, 2006

Last night we had a nice dinner for Greg’s company holiday party. Not sure which holiday we were celebrating. I guess it was President’s Day. We went to Kincaid’s. I was expecting great things because I’d read somewhere that this is the restaurant to “go to when someone else is paying”. Boy is it! I…

Chicken and Wild Rice with Smoked Sausage

I made this again last night. It’s wonderful comfort food. This is one where I have not really changed the recipe at all! I used not Uncle Ben’s but a different brand of white and wild rice mix. No seasoning packets came with mine. Very good casserole type thing but made in a pot (not…

Company Chicken

Another all time favorite. My notes say “this is the lower-fat version of the Bon Appetit recipe, cut from 68g to 8g. fat.” But I looked online and can’t find the original recipe. I also show it to be more than 8 g. fat. Whatever, it’s worth it. This has changed so much it’s mine…

Lamb Chops With Ginger And Five-Spice

This one of Greg’s favorites (mine too). This was originally from Bon Appetit Magazine (February 2002) but it called for lamb shanks and was 6 servings. I used blade lamb chops instead because I was only cooking for two. I later tried this with shanks and it didn’t work nearly as well. Stick with chops.…

My last birthday present which I opened last night, was a WebCam! Now we can keep an eye on the house and see who is pooping on the floor. We can also webcast our house concerts, which would be cool. So thanks Greg, for helping ease me into my middle years. This was a great…

I was determined to make something that did not involve rice tonight. I found this on the FoodTV Network site and then, of course, made some changes. Greg actually cooked this. I made the accompanying mashed potatoes and spinach salad. Smothered Pork Chops Recipe By :Tyler Florence…then us. Serving Size : 2 Amount Measure Ingredient…
