Trying Something New for Dinner

December 2, 2012 // Posted in Good Food (Tags: , ) |  No Comments

Recipes are not my thing – I guess you could say that I have a little trouble following instructions. But I am hungry and nothing sounds good, so I am going to find a recipe and try something new for dinner tonight.

My dinners are usually built around some kind of chicken or fish. I love chicken and eat chicken at least three times a week. I also love fish, especially salmon. I wish salmon was more affordable around here. I know it costs a lot because it is caught half the country away from here and has to be flown and trucked across half of America.

Sometimes I get a small salmon fillet from the seafood counter at Kroger, but most of the time that I shop for groceries it is so late at night the deli and seafood counters have packed up and shit down for the night before I get there.

I picked up a small tray of Tilapia fillets at the store, so I am looking for a recipe for the Tilapia. My cousin told me that she cooks it up by mixing equal parts of mayonnaise and Parmesean cheese, then spreading that mix over the Tilapia and baking it in the oven for 20 minutes. That sounds easy enough, right? That’s my dinner plans – I hope it turns out as good as it sounds.

Stocked Up on Hamburger

How many ways can you list to make dinner using hamburger meat? I am stocked up on ground beef and need to find a few new ways to cook with it. I have obviously made hamburgers and cheeseburgers. I also have made spaghetti and meatloaf. Now I am stuck for new ideas.

I don’t buy Hamburger Helper because it has so much salt and other chemicals in it. Does anyone know how to make the different Hamburger Helper dishes from scratch with fresh ingredients? I would like to learn how to make stroganoff and a couple other meals that are some kind of sauce and pasta or rice.

Would appreciate any first hand recommendations about what to cook for dinner this week.
