    Thumbs up What Are You Having For Dinner Tonight?

    Peaches the treat in this Thai chicken

    The Canadian Press March 23, 2005

    The sweet surprise in this Thai curried chicken dish is the addition of canned cling peaches.

    "More culinary professionals will use canned peaches over fresh ones in cooking and baking because they are versatile," says chef and cooking show host Michael P. Clive.

    "They are perfect for everything from simple salsas and smoothies to gourmet teriyaki glazes or Thai curried chicken," he adds, noting that there is "no peeling, no pitting, just great taste with a nutritious boost."

    THAI CURRIED CHICKEN

    2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts

    1 Tbsp vegetable oil

    1/2 large, thinly sliced onion

    1 clove minced garlic

    2 tsp Thai red curry paste

    1 Tbsp sugar

    1 Tbsp fish sauce

    2 tsp finely grated lime peel

    3/4 cup coconut milk

    1 14-oz can cling peaches

    1 cup snow peas

    1 small red pepper, sliced

    1/2 cup sliced green onions

    1/2 cup thinly sliced fresh basil leaves

    2 Tbsp coarsely chopped cilantro

    Using a sharp knife, cut the chicken into 1.75 cm ( 3/4-inch) cubes.

    Heat oil in a wok or frying pan over high heat. Add onion and stir fry for 2 minutes. Add chicken and garlic and cook until chicken is golden and almost cooked through, about 5 minutes.

    Add red curry paste, sugar, fish sauce, lime peel and coconut milk and stir until well mixed. Bring to a boil and cook for 2 minutes.

    Meanwhile, drain peaches and then add snow peas, red pepper and peaches to onion mixture. Cook, stirring for 2 minutes.

    Sprinkle with green onions, basil and cilantro. Serve with rice.

    Makes 2 main course servings or 4 servings for a multi-course meal.

    Tip: For a hotter curry, add 2 to 5 ml ( 1/2 to 1 tsp) more Thai red curry paste.

    Dinner for me?

    Steak tips done on the grill after marinating for the afternoon in a spicey jalepeno barbeque sauce, cheesey garlic mashed potatoes, fresh baby carrots steamed and covered with butter, home made dinner rolls, and a fresh garden salad.

    Mmmmmmm!

    I am heading out to Red Lobster to have crab legs and to console a close friend who is having some "issues".... mixing the good with the bad makes the whole thing easier to swallow.

    Ok, somehow I missed the thread involving Fig Newtons, and it sounds naughty! Could someone direct me to the thread, cuz the search feature doesn't seem to help.

    Also, under OFF-DUTY DISCUSSION Page 4 Titled DUNCAN FIRE DEPT. Seems like when a thread starts mentioning food, Fig Newtons aren't far behind. BTW- What kind of Fig Newtons do you like? Do you use your Fig Newtons for anything other than eating?

    Reserve I am a wee bit worried about this obsession you have with fig newtons. We need to work on elevating your culinary tastes. My kitchen is available between 4-7 pm.

    RESERVE172,

    Yes you can put fig newtons in tacos. Its called a mexican desert "el taco newton". As for your other question, yes you can use fig newtons for something other than eating. I use them to prop up the wobly end of a table and once to wedge a door open. You can fit about six around your helmet comfortably.

    OK Cheffie, if my schedule allows it I'll see you at 4p.m. As for my obsession, I believe it has remained hidden, deep down inside all my life until I started reading these threads! Actually, I prefer Devil Dogs but we'll save that for another day.

    YET ANOTHER WAY TO USE FIG NEWTONS: Simply heat about a dozen of them in the microwave on high for approx. 30-45 seconds. Remove them, and while they are still warm, roll them up into one big ball in your hands. Once they are all together, flatten the ball into one long strip about 2" wide. Now put the strip back in the microwave for 10sec. or until it is soft(like my head) again. Remove from microwave. PRESTO! You can now use this all natural strip like a piece of duct tape! The uses are endless!

    OK--------New Day = New Menu How about Shrimp Scampi on a bed of linguine or angel hair, served with stuffed mushrooms, warm bow tie dinner rolls and a bottle of Pinot Grigio. Garden Salad is optional. Hold the Fig Newtons.
