people. . .we are at the half-way point. and what a half-way point it is.
both of these are form the dreaded rachael ray (rogray has decided that she's not so great and since her meals certainly don't take a mere 30 minutes to make then it's probably not worth it but these were actually pretty good.)
israeli chicken with a tomato salad and a zucchini-mint salad with pita.
holgray (rogray's sister) loves this dish and i have to say -- it's quite good -- i imagine if you throw some hummus onto that pita and make a sandwich with all that stuff and you have aslammin' sandwich.
the chicken was a bit on the spicy - i think rogray got worried that it would be bland so he kicked it up one too many notches. . .but still, it worked for me.
so this was the half-way mark. . .and due to the fact that the only thing rogray had with him at the store was the rachael ray cookbook, #16 comes out of there as well. but i think she's about to be put on serious hiatus. especially since my parents just got him this cookbook. . .i can't wait to kick it veggie for awhile.
without further ado, #16:
winter vegetable stew with potato-gruyere pancakes.
this was yummy too -- but i think it was yummy because rogray had a feeling it might be a bit bland according to the recipe so he threw in some extra veggies and spices and i have a feeling that kept it from being boring. . .and also, you just can't go wrong with a potato-gruyere pancake. i mean that's a no-brainer.
i am very excited to write about tonight's meal, dadgo's birthday dinner and WGC #17. not only is it impressive but it's going to be a sweet, sweet surprise.
