Aroma-Therapy.......








Hi Everybody....
I hope your Week-End was Kick ASS!
Today's Pro-Bowl football game isn't on until 7:30, so I have all day to get creative as far as dinner goes. Yesterday I came across some exceptional food values while grocery shopping, and I ended up with TWO cut-up whole chickens, and TEN pounds of Country Style Ribs (Cut up pork shoulder).
The pork was bought with the notion of making the filling for tamales, but that will come at another time so I bagged and froze most of the pork. I also froze one of the chickens....So what to do?
In my mind I started to formulate some ideas. I had a hankerin for some Pesto Chicken, but I was out of Pine-Nuts! I also didn't have any fresh Basil.
Time to Experiment!
I DID have some Cilantro..
I DID have fresh Garlic..
I DID have grated Parmesian..
I DID have some nuts in the shell left from Christmas.
I DID have Olive Oil...
Mix them all in the blender until liquified....VOILA!!!! Home Made Pesto!
Put the Chicken in a Zip-Lock, dump the Pesto in the baggie over the chicken, and let marinate for at least an hour. Dump EVERYTHING in a roasting dish and bake for 1 1/2 hrs at 350. Serve over pasta OR rice....YUM!
I'm thinking that a side of baked sliced Summer Squash AND sliced Aubergine (I just LOVE that word...Eggplant to the Non-Euro's) drizzled with Olive Oil and sprinkled with some very expensive pink Himalayan Salt.
OK....Now the Pork!
I had One Sweet Potato..
I had One Onion..
I had Two lonely apples..
I had some imported Hot Indian Curry..
I had some Imported Garam Masala...
I sprinkled some Pink Salt, Curry, and the Masala on some Pork and set it aside.
I sliced up the apples and sweet potato and onion in a dish and drizzled some Honey over the slices. I then sprinkled a tad of cinnamon on them as well. I added about a half-cup of Apple Juice to the melange, and let everything set for about an hour.
In a shallow baking dish, dump the dish of slices over the seasoned pork, and bake for two hours at 350. Right now my house smells like my favorite Indian Restaurant, The Raja Rani in Ann Arbor.
Thank you for visiting Chez G-Man, and his Indian/Italiano Cuisine. I know it seems like a lot of food, but sometimes you get unexpected guests. And if not...I work late every Monday, and I still have a 20 year old college student living at home!
Have a Great Week...Peace!!!
