Default Re: What's for Dinner?

We do live on the northerly side of the Denver metro area, so you may be able to make it if you left now!

It's work sometimes, and I don't always feel like doing it, but I think friends dinner is one of the better ideas I've had. I get to make dinners that wouldn't be worth making for just us, and I'm not always very good about keeping in touch with my friends when I don't have a regularly scheduled thing. Also, it forces us to do minimal housecleaning a little more regularly than we do by default. I mean, the house isn't CLEAN or anything, but it's sort of a reminder to change the slipcover on the couch and get all the junk off the whole dining table instead of just clearing a corner and stuff like that.

Scrub a toilet or two :nod:

The Mor-man and I attend a lot of things but we don't entertain really. I'm afraid he will invite the Church over :scared:

Tonight we are eating lightly as tomorrow we are going to pig-out at The CNE.

Now that I've downsized the dinners to every other week instead of every week, I feel like I should make more stuff when I do. Anyway, I'll just start making stuff I guess and stop when I get tired of doing that.
Have you ever tried Muhammara (Roasted Pepper & Walnut Spread)? I have always loved hummus and baba ganoush and we were at this Lebanese restaurant (Arabesque in Kitchener Waterloo if any Canadians are reading this and get a chance to go there, do it. DO. IT.) and they had Muhammara which I had never heard of before and it was delicious. Soooooooo good.

And stangely, one of the youtube chef's I watch had a recipe for it the next week.
You have probably had it, but maybe someone else will give it a try.

Ha, yeah. I do that. I go through these phases where I'll make the same types of things over and over for a while until I figure out how to do something. And my sister in law sent me her harissa recipe a little while ago, so that's what I've been messing around with these days.

After I get through my experiment phase, I'll go back to normal. I can make it the way I like now without looking anything up, but I'm still experimenting with using it for different things.

Pretty soon, I'll move on. Probably to Muhammara, because no, I have not had that before, but I really want to now.
