I talk about food a lot. And other stuff.

But mostly food.

Eating Well Magazine, March/April 2010

Open your April 2010 Eating Well magazine (Avocado) with me and let's see what we're cooking next.  I've marked some, and have already made something, so let's jump in with a check list.  Remember - one from each (or at lest most) category, and at least eight items total.

Vegetarian Tortilla Soup
Butterflied Grilled Chicken with Chile-Lime Rub
Italian Egg Drop Soup
Hilary's Heavenly Eggs
Bacon, Egg & Asparagus Pizza
Rosemary Orange Pot Roast
Spinach & Frisée Salad with Tangerines & Coriander-Crusted Scallops
Broccoli Rabe & Orzo Salad
Avocado Ice Cream

I grilled two more T-Bones last night and made a version of the Spring Salad with Beets, Prosciutto & Creamy Onion Dressing.  I didn't have sweet onions, so I used a leek.  I also used spinach for the leaves and pancetta from Trader Joe's in place of the prosciutto.  (Did you know you can buy a 4 oz. package of  cubed pancetta at Trader Joe's?  It's a staple in our house ever since Freddy wanted to try it and put it in the cart.  Just stick it in a sautée pan and crisp it up.  I put it inside grilled cheese sandwiches the other day, too.  Man, that stuff is good.)  The onion dressing is really fantastic.  I'm going to try to think of ways I can use what's left -- maybe as a spread on a roast beef sandwich?  Dressing for chicken salad?  Dip for steamed green beans?  Who knows it's destiny....

Last minute decision after writing this far and then going grocery shopping:  I'm adding one more because who can pass up soup with horseradish and blue cheese?  Tonight: Creamy Watercress Soup

So, anyone out there wanna cook any of this stuff with me?  Or if you have a subscription to Eating Well and something else looks good to you, let me know how it turns out!

  1. I just got my first issue of Eating Well and lots of things looked good to me! I think the egg drop soup looks tasty! The arugula pesto sounds interesting too. They show it on veggies but I think it could be interesting on pasta or chicken too.

    What about making homemade chicken fingers? You could bread some chicken tenders with panko or breadcrumbs, bake them and dip them in the onion dressing. I think your other ideas are great too!
