French Toast

It has been a while since I made some french toast, but it all came back...mmm...french good. Add a little vanilla, add a little cinnamon...and mmm...good stuffs.

Fish Cakes with Coleslaw and Horseradish-Dill Sauce

This was actually quite good...and easy to make. Though the tuna probably wasn't the best of quality...though it was individually portioned and then frozen...but it still worked out. I didn't go with the coleslaw because neither of us are big fans of coleslaw. So we had pasta salad instead. The Horseradish Dill sauce was good too.

Vegetarian Black Bean Chili with Orange and Cumin

I had an extra 3/4 pound of ground to beef it up a bit, I added that tot the chili...though I don't think it really needed it. It was bright flavored where you could certainly smell and taste the cumin and oranges. So it was very chili like up front, but the finishing taste was very orange. Certainly and interesting way to make a chili.

New England Clam and Corn Chowder with Herbs

Mmmm....chowder. This was pretty easy to make and delicious. I've never used can clam before, but it turned out good...though the saltiness makes it something that I cannot have on a regular basis.

Beef and Bacon Meatloaf

I wish this recipe would've said 4 slice of white bread or a bout X cups of bread crumbs. We ran out of bread, but I had some leftover breadcrumbs from various I used them instead. It ended up a bit more loafy then I intended...thought still good. Usually, though, when I make meat loaf, I don't use bread when I make meat loaf.... It still tasted good, but it was more like eating a meatloaf sandwich, then just meatloaf.

Beer and Onion-Braised Chicken Carbonnade

So I used Goose Island Oatmeal Stout...this is fairly strong flavored. And while I liked the way it turned out, it had too much, though only slightly, of the beer flavor for Shannon. It wasn't like the Irish beer I made a while back that had so much beer that Shannon just couldn't take it. It made for a good dinner.
