My Easter Sunday dinner. My bf and my son were both here so I bothered to make a dinner. Unfortunately my son won't eat roast lamb (the traditional Easter roast) so I did a stuffed chicken instead. So it was chicken, pork sage & onion stuffing, mashed potatoes, potatoes roasted in goose fat (my favourites ) carrots, broccoli, gravy and yorkshire puddings. I had bread sauce too but forgot until I started eating.

My neighbors had a party and crawfish boil tonight. They gave us a HUGE tray of crawfish with some potatoes, sausage, corn, garlic cloves, and mushrooms (I've never seen people throw mushrooms in a crawfish boil pot but damn if they didn't soak up a lot of that good flavor and tasted great!).

That looks very nice indeed. I am a soup addict and make at least one pot a week. Do you have the recipe for this one, I'd love to try it. There is a thread for recipes from here on the forum somewhere.

Done! http://www.dimensionsmagazine.com/fo...8&postcount=82

It wasn't too hard to find the thread; it was a sticky, and you were actually the last one to post with a lovely garden pea/pancetta soup. It looked really good, and I loved the color; it's so much more vibrant than what you get with dried peas.

Broccoli and cheese is one of my faves!
That looks delicious.

I remember you sharing your tomato soup recipe with me years ago...lost the recipe but you made is sound so interesting with sour cream on top.

Made that cream cheese stuffed monkey bread that was floating around on the Buzzfeed page on Facebook. Turned out pretty well, a bit bitter because I used baking chocolate chips instead of regular milk chocolate... will be making this again with milk chocolate, and it should taste better and even out the bitterness from the cream cheese, as well. Was pretty good overall, though.

This year's Christmas Dinner main course. Roast chicken (I gave up with turkey because I don't like it and I'm the one that prepares, cooks, clears away etc!), goose fat roast potatoes, mashed potatoes, sausage stuffing with onion and chestnuts, sausage stuffing with apricots and cranberries, chipolatas in bacon, carrots, garlic green beans, Brussels Sprouts with chestnuts, gravy from the chicken, bread sauce (not on plate yet in pic). I wolfed down every last morsel, my favourite meal of the year!

Starter was prawns, marie rose sauce, smoked salmon stuffed with salmon mousse, salad. Dessert was sticky toffee pudding, Christmas pudding, sherry trifle or chocolate yule log, all with either cream, plain ice cream or custard.

I made gumbo for the first time! I used shrimp and chorizo, and it turned out really well, with minimal effort. Jasmine rice paired well with the flavors. I'm definitely making this again soon.

That gumbo looks lovely, I've never had it before. What are the main herb or spice flavours? I have had jasmine rice though, the sticky kind with thai curry and i love it! It usually puts me to sleep for an hour after, it's so damn carbilicious!

Thank you! I've never had it before either but was inspired by something Swamptoad posted, so I read through a few recipes and worked with what I had on hand. If I recall, the main flavor elements I used were a lot of carrot, onion and green bell pepper.* It also got a little celery seed, a little Old Bay seasoning, some garlic and about a tablespoon of tomato paste (I think). I used lobster stock for the broth, a small amount of fresh lemon* juice, and let the chorizo do most of the rest of the work for flavoring it. I also forgot to add parsley, so it was garnished with parsley and green onion.

A few of the recipes I looked at called for file powder, which I'd never heard of. I looked it up to see if I could make it with other spices I had on hand, but it was described as a cross between juicy fruit gum and eucalyptus. I promise you that even though I have about 40 spices and blends on hand, I have nothing that is likely to create that flavor combination!

* Normally, I don't like green bell pepper because it's bitter, but in this case I think using it and a very small amount of lemon helped balance everything nicely.
