- Chicken Pot Pie with Savory Crumble Topping. Candidate for a pot luck dinner where we can do the final 15-30 minutes of cooking on site.
- Spicy Mexican Shredded Pork Tostadas (Tinga). Make a batch and use through out the week. This should be good for my normal breakfast, oatmeal & yogurt.
- Beef Empanadas. Like the tinga above, might be good for breakfast. (Note to self, buy tequila.)
- Chewy Brownies. Don't want the calories around the house but I want to verify that the chemistry works ;) as advertized.
- No-Fuss Creamy Polenta. Quick and easy, for went potatoes are just to routine/ordinary.
- Almost Hands-Fee Risotto with Parmesan and Herbs. Sharon loves risotto.
- Pan-Seared Scollops. Because I love scollops when prepared correctly. Test both the lemon brown butter and tomato-ginger sauces.
- Spaghetti with Pecorino Romano and Black Pepper (Cacio E Pepe). When you just want pasta and are tired of red sauce.
- Inexpensive Charcoal Grill-Roasted Beef with Garlic and Rosemary. Beef, grilled, say no more, say no more.
- Roasted Smashed Potatoes. A new way to eat fried potatoes.
- Foolproof Grilled Tuna. Technology for cooking fish steaks on the grill.
- Charcoal-Grilled Argentine Steaks with Chimichurri Sauce. Improved technology for getting a good crust and the sauce is right up my alley. (Argentina is currently in my mind from the Presidential Agent books.)
- Indoor Pulled Pork. Lexington vinegar and South Carolina mustard barbecue sauces.
- Horseradish-Crusted Beef Tenderloin. Includes a horseradish cream sauce.
- Roasted Carrots. I think we've done this recipe with a bit of sugar added.
- Foolproof Vinaigrette. It has been 40 years since I cared about my salad dressing recipes, maybe it is time to learn some new tricks. Vinaigrettes will go nicely on grilled fish.
- Greek-Style Shrimp with Tomatoes and Feta. We love the cherry tomato salad and have ouzo in the fridge plus flash frozen shrimp in the freezer. This might be the recipe I got from Cooks Illustrated, it is on our "menu" list.
- Stir-Fried Shrimp with Snow Peas. Because it has 15-18 different ingredients and we like shrimp. Sharon makes something similar to this from time to time and it is delicious.
- Mediterranean Chopped Salad. Reminds me of the wonderful Greek tomato salad so lets try this one as well (when we can't get good tomatoes.)
