Gumbo Stew and Cherry Pie

Gumbo Stew

4 chicken thighs, baked til just done, pour off most of the grease. (great for leftover chicken bits)
1 medium Yellow Onion diced
1/2 bell pepper diced
4 stalks celery sliced
1 ham steak, diced
1 foot long chunk Enduille sausage sliced
1 32 oz package Swanson Chicken Broth + 2 cups water
1 can whole kernel corn
2 cans chopped tomatoes with garlic n onion
1 tbs Mrs. Dash
2 tbs Chipotle pepper sauce
2 bay leaves
1 package tortelloni with cheese and garlic (buitoni)
1 package tortelloni with chicken and proscuitto

sautee onions until tender then add bell pepper, celery, ham and enduille, heat through. Put in stew pot with all the other ingredients except the tortelloni. Simmer for 1 1/2 hour on medium heat, add tortelloni and simmer for 1/2 hour more. Serve over steamed rice or with corn bread it's YUM.

Cherry pie is Marie Callendars so I can't take credit for that.

Aww LMG I hope you get feeling better!

Eggplant Pizza

3 eggplants, about 3 pounds total, sliced 3/4 inches thick
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing on vegetables, plus about 1/4 cup
2 large red or yellow bell peppers
1 recipe Piadine dough (or prepared pizza dough)
All-purpose flour, for dusting
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh oregano leaves
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional
About 1 cup pitted kalamata olives
About 1/2 pound buffalo mozzarella cheese or provolone, coarsely shredded
About 3 cups packed arugula
Balsamic vinegar

Prepare the grill and let burn down to medium coals or heat gas grill on medium heat.

In a colander set over another bowl, salt the eggplant and let drain for 30 minutes then rinse and dry.

Brush the eggplant slices with olive oil and season with pepper. Toss the peppers with a little olive oil. Place both on the grill and cook the eggplant until browned on the first side, about 3 minutes. The slices should be browned between the grill marks when ready to turn. Move them away from direct heat and cook on the second side until tender, about 10 minutes total. Cut the grilled slices into 1/2-inch dice.

Cook the peppers, turning as necessary, until charred all over. Remove the peppers to a bowl. Cover and let the peppers steam to loosen the skins. When cool enough to handle, peel, seed, and tear into long, thin strips.

Divide the dough into 6 equal balls. Working on a surface free of flour, roll each ball under your palm. As it rolls, it will stick slightly to the surface, creating tension that helps form a tight, round ball. Dust the work surface lightly with flour, pat each ball down lightly, dust the tops with flour, cover with a towel, and let rise for about 15 minutes. With a rolling pin, roll out each ball into a circle 8 or 9 inches in diameter and about 1/8-inch thick.

Have the grill ready at medium heat. Have the 1/4 cup olive oil, eggplant, peppers, garlic, oregano, red pepper flakes, if using, olives, and cheese in bowls and ready by the side of the grill.

Brush each dough round with about 1 teaspoon of the olive oil. Place on the grill, oiled side up, and cook until browned on the underside, about 2 minutes. Turn and, working quickly, brush each round with another 1 teaspoon olive oil. Then scatter each with 1/6 each of the garlic, oregano, red pepper flakes, if using, eggplant, bell peppers, olives, and cheese. Cover the grill and cook until the rounds are browned on the bottom and the cheese has softened, about 7 minutes. Transfer to plates and top each with an equal amount of the arugula. Spritz lightly with vinegar. Serve immediately.

That sounds like alot of work!!

Ok, but I'll try it and let you know how mine turns out. I doubt anyone else will eat it...they're all afraid of eggplant. Except Billy...he just doesn't like it!

I made up something new last night.

2 Cups cooked rice
8 Chicken Tenders (not the breaded junk the fresh stuff)
1 tbsp chopped garlic (I buy the prechopped stuff cuz I'm lazy)
1 tbs butter
1 Tbs flour
2 tbs olive oil
1 cup 1/2 and 1/2
1 can creamed corn
some creole seasoning and salt and pepper to taste

Season chicken tenders with creole seasoning, salt and pepper. brown the chicken tenders slightly on both sides in the olive oil on medium heat. then remove from heat.

melt the butter in a sauce pan and sautee the garlic for 3 minutes on medium heat. Then add flour and cook for another 2 minutes. Add the half and half and bring to a boil. Cook til gravy thickness and remove from heat.

In a casserole dish, mix the rice, corn and gravy all together and top with the chicken. sprinkle a bit more creole seasoning on top and bake for 20 minutes at 375.
You could spice it up with red pepper flakes and some paprika if you wanted.

Peel eggplant.
Mince it. Mince it some more.
Add it to anything and cook.
Depending on how much you use,
it can be an ingredient or a binder.
Read the Wikipedia entry for

Then cook your eggplant or don't cook it much.
Dump it into a blender with minced onion, peeled garlic cloves
and some fresh lemon juice.
Run the blender.
Trowel it onto bread ..... white bread or pita.
Top it off with a thick slice of a large tomato,
or with several grape tomatoes.

I marinated a cut-up fryer in some Kikoman Roasted Garlic teriyaki sauce with some rosemary,onion,pepper,garlic powder and lemon pepper. My family hated it,but I found it delicious.

Teriyaki gives anything a subtle flavor.
