Chez Post

Paul cooks! And it’s tasty! This will be an area in which I share the things that Paul makes for dinner. Sometimes they come from Cooking Light, sometimes another tasty site he’s found on the internet.

 Previous to now (dates not always remembered):

Valentine’s Day 2008 – Roasted Beet, Pear, Pistachio Salad / Pan Seared Scallops on Linguine with Tomato-Cream Sauce / French Bread / Wine / Chocolate Chunk Bread Pudding
Review: two thumbs up! The whole meal was amazing – and very memorable. Presentation was impecable as well – tablecloth, linen napkins, candles, flowers. (:

Friday Night Dinner Club (now switched to Saturdays): Jamaican Jerk Pork Tenderloin
Review: two thumbs up! This meat had a kick to it when it came out of the broiler. Some of the guests claimed it was too spicy, but we both thought it was something we’d want to make again. Paul marinated the meat overnight in a mixture of onions, spices and hot peppers. It was very moist, and truly cooked to perfection – roasted on the outside, pink on the inside. Mmm…yum!

Ratatoulie
Review: Paul made this on Oscars night for a group of friends. Lots of great veggies ladled over pasta noodles. And vegetarian friendly!

Broiled Cumin Lamb Chops with Curried Couscous
Review: the week prior to Easter, we tried out this recipe. The chops were a hot commodity at the meat counter, as Paul soon found out they were the last chops they had for the day! Moist meat, great flavor. The couscous was a great accent to the dish.

Curried Chicken Penne with Fresh Mango Chutney
Review: this was one of my favorites. I really liked the mango chutney in this dish. It had a nice kick to it as well. Plus, there was cauliflower, broccoli, and lime – you could definitely taste a hint of lime. And I’m a sucker for anything with that curry and ginger flavor. M-m-good!

Beef and Beer Chili
We had this on a snowy night, complimented with a green salad. It was the perfect cold-weather comfort food. When will this snow end? Toot! Toot!
