What are the attributes of Yukon Gold potatoes? People seem to love them.
For leftover turkey I usually do a tetrazzini and a pot pie (for the pot pie I use a frozen butter puff pastry as the top).
For South Asian food lovers I have been making my own garam masala for a few months now and it makes all the difference. I bought a used cookbook off amazon that someone had recommended and I am loving it. Charmaine Solomon's complete asian cookbook. It is an older book but you can get if for under 40$ I think and it covers 500+ pages.
One of the veggie sides I did last night was this roasted cauliflower with red pepper coulis. (coulis: french term for a thick sauce) lol

Annie also has a recipe for sesame soba noodles that I'm going to try. I've never had soba noodles, I hope we like them. :)
Are you all following this story on the "pink slime" that is added, unlabeled, to the ground beef in the stores? It has been on the evening ABC news this week. Apparently, a lot of stores carry the ground beef with this additive. I do know that it is USDA(?) approved, for years. The news people suggest that you talk to your meat people and ask if the "pink slime" has been added. They've asked a number of stores about "pink slime" in their ground beef, and some responded and some haven't. Whole Foods does not add the "pink slime"; that was the only store that responded with which I am familiar; my usual store was not listed. You can also be assured of no "pink slime" if your beef is labeled "Organic". Apparently, "pink slime" is made from trimmings from beef (fats and very little meat) that used to be put in pet foods....and now it's for us! It's considered a "filler"; it's has a gelatinous appearance. Can't help but wonder if the woman who approved this additive, however many years ago, feeds this beef to her family.
Reminds me of an old joke: Did you hear what happened to the butcher when he backed into the meat grinder? He got a little behind in his work. (bah-dum-dum) :nod
Have you seen the pink slime that is the blendered chicken product McDonald's uses for their chicken nuggets? It looks like chewed bubble gum.
