What are you having for dinner?

I've been on a Turkey kick recently. Not the whole bird, just wings and thighs.
I recently did a Jerk recipe for them...soaked them overnight.
Fucking awesome. Deadly.
I'm going to try a couple breasts over the weekend.
Screw chicken...half the meat at twice the price, and no real taste ( before seasoning ).

I was buying whole turkeys for a while and disassembling them. On a 20lb turkey you can get around 6-7 lbs breast meat, 3-4lbs ground, 2 or 3lbs of clean chunks (stir fry, curry etc) and the rest can go into stock.

Throw in a bit of feta and this sounds like a great lunch!

I've been doing a tonne of chickpea salad lunches lately after discovering Alton Brown's Chickpea Recipe (I usually add a couple bay leaves and garlic cloves to the pot for added flavour) and buying a fairly cheap pressure cooker...no overnight soaking or cooking for hours. It's super easy to do, chickpeas freeze really well and they taste WAY better than the canned chickpeas. My current favourite is Vietnamese inspired. Chopped red and green pepper, spring onion, grated carrot, finely chopped fresh cilantro and mint with a nuoc cham style dressing (lime juice, fish sauce, sugar and chili). So good!
Awesome - so smart and the Viet style salad sounds delicious.

Whole chicken for $6? damn.
yup. Last night, finally got around to roasting up that 6$ chicken, along with diced russet potatoes, some baby bell peppers, onions garlic, etc.. I basically used the *Jamie Oliver* recipe - shoved a whole lemon + thyme + tarragon (my add), + did a dry rub on top.

Of course it came out fantastic, but what impresses me most is the *per meal* price. Ima gonna get 8-10 full meals out of this, and total cost? 10$.
That's awesome.

I'm making all the ribs from one pig. With apple/maple glaze.
Salad from the garden and bread from a local bakery

Authentic pizza with pineapple, ham, green olives and mozzarella/colby blend. Perfect day to fire up the stove to 451.

did Turkey wings and thighs again last night.
deep fried them to 90% done...coated in sauce, and charred on high for a few minutes on the bbq.
SOOO much yummier than chicken.

a few nights ago I finally got around to doing a Lasagna

But this time, I included some sided Chorizo to the ground beef mix
along with some fresh basil, and other (dried) Italian herbs
with a 3 cheese blend of mozza/aged cheddar/ and some fresh parmisan.

It came out pretty good. In fact, I'm eating the leftovers right now
