What's for Dinner, Wed., May 5, 2021

Chinese dumplings--chicken with vegetable.

I've chopped up scallions and cilantro to put over the top. Both soy/wasabi and hoisin for dipping.

Also made a tossed green salad with lots of garden goodies such as baby arugula, radish and beet leaves, and chives with their purple flower attached.

2. Chicken pot pie

It's a cold, damp and rainy day in the Catskills so we need comfort food.

We made a simple chicken pot pie with diced chicken, celery, onion, carrots, peas and small cubes of potato. The sauce is made from milk, chicken broth and flour. It all goes into the homemade crusts (we made 2 pies) that are covered with a top crust. The warm oven helps warm up the house!

At dinnertime, I'll make a green salad to go along with the pie.

For dessert, in honor of Cinco de Mayo, we'll have a shot of tequila!

14. Ham and leek quiche

This one is dedicated to the soggy bottom boys. I neglected to fry up the ham first and the result was tasty but the bottom was afloat in whatever liquid hams are injected with. No one complained. I guess they were hungry.

15. Chicken and pasta

Did bone in thighs in the air fryer, liberally coated with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and some cayenne.

For the pasta sauce: butter, onions simmered till soft, then a spoon of flour, then white wine and milk. Added diced fresh tomato, and sautťed some spinach and garlic in a side pan, which then got dumped in the sauce. When the chicken was done, I poured the drippings into the sauce. Yum!

Iím out of parmesan and didnít realize it until I went to grab it to put in the sauce. Itís still pretty darn tasty without the cheese!

ETA: Dessert is strawberry muffins I made last night. Well, itís more of a coffee cake thing made with my favorite muffin recipe. I must have lost my silicone muffin cups when I moved. So, I dumped the batter in a small pyrex pan and added more baking time. And more baking time. And a little more baking time, lol!
