Of course anything.
Personally I'm having stuffed red and green bell peppers, (an old family favorite) for one meal and another will be top sirloin steak (cheap) cooked super rare on a hot mesquite fire and one pound of fried shrimp ( on sale) with fixings.

Details later.

As far as the Middle Eastern food discussion please keep it up I am reading all of it.

Well what a feast we had last night! A real picnic spread with jamaican patties, chicken drumsticks in mustard/maple sauce, battered and fried cauliflower, green salad, cheese tray, huge pot of steamed mussels.... Everyone brought something delicious.


My falafel mix came out perfect for handling and I managed to do the deep frying just before toddlers arrived (best case scenario!) but the falafels were a bit dry, so I will add more water next time before setting over night. The pita was good and we had lots of moist things to go with, tomatoey, yoghurt/cucumber, a slaw with cilantro, etc. and we enjoyed it all.

A card carrying member of the Choctaw Nation named Juanita made something similar to falafel that I knew years ago when I was a teen.
She would make it for her son myself and a few other hippy friends after listening to the Yes Fragile and the Rush 2112 album and smoking a big fatty.
She called me the goat roping hippy because I had long hair wore cowboy boots and raised cattle..

The 2 pound sirloin steak is marinating in sangria and chopped garlic.
It will marinate for at least 24 hours, I have never done it to sirloin before with sangria.
It appears to be from Portuguese origin after I looked it up, not for sure.
Cooking basmati rice for the stuffed peppers.

The pepper stuffing is....
Ground chuck.
Ketchup, not a lot.
Homemade mustard.
Homemade pesto that has pecans, Parmesan cheese, home grown basil and garlic in it.
Finely grated carrot and celery.
Finely chopped onion in mini food processor.
Fresh ground black pepper.
Cooked basmati rice.
Bread crumbs.
Salt.
Gave it a taste test before adding meat for adjustment and it tasted pretty good.
Never made it like this before just dreamed it up.
Made a big ball and in the refrigerator for flavors to meld.
That's a huge bowl.

My kitchen sink has frozen pork chops, chicken wings, and a brisket thawing on it.

Pork chops with I don't know tonight.
Buffalo wings and potato wedges tomorrow night.
Brisket, corn on the cob, and a pot of pinto beans on Memorial Day.

Sounds like a tasty weekend.
My stuffed red and green bell peppers are in the oven as we speak
I put a goodly dollop of ketchup on each one like my mom did.

Stuffed bell peppers are a real treat for me and one of my top five favorite foods since time immortal.
