I miss Vin's thread of recipes and I don't want to copy that, so instead I'm going to give you guys the recipe i plan for each day, then after I make it I'll give the thumbs up or thumbs down. (That way, you can still try whatever sounds good even if I don't like it)

Tonight's main course: Chicken simmered with cream and onions

Ingredients:
2 1/2- 3 pounds of chicken
3 Tb butter
1 1/2 cup thinly slices yellow onions
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp white pepper
1/4 tsp curry powder
1/3 cup white vermouth
3 cups whipping cream
fresh parsley
lemon juice (optional)

Cut chicken into strips for frying.

Dry the chicken thoroughly. Turn in hot butter 4-5 minutes, until meat is stiff but has not browned. Remove chicken.

Stir in onions, cover adn cook slowly for 5 minutes, when onions are tender but not brown.

Add chicken to pan again. Cook slowly for 10 minutes, turning it after 5 minutes.
While chicken is cooking, boil whipping cream in another saucepan.

Season chicken with salt, pepper, and curry powder. Pour in wine, raise heat, and boil rapidly until liquid is almost completely evaporated.

Add boiling whipping cream, bring heat to the lowest setting (simmer). Cook 30-35 minutes.

Remove chicken.

Skim fat off of cream still in pan, then boil it. Stir it until it reduces to the point where it coats the spoon. Add more salt pepper to taste. (you may even add a few drops of lemon juice). Turn heat off, add a couple spoonfuls of whipping cream if you need to smooth out the sauce.

Pour sauce over chicken, decorate with parsley, serve.

Tonight's side dish: Braised Rice

Ingredients:
1/4 cup finely minced oonions
4Tb butter
1 1/2 cup clean, unwashed, raw rice
3 cups boiling white vermouth
salt and pepper to taste
2 parsley sprigs, 1/3 bay leaf, 1/8 tsp thyme tied in cheesecloth (couldn't find that, I'm going to try to use a coffee filter >.>)

Preheat oven to 375

Cook onions in butter for 5 minutes, so onions are tender but not brown.

Blend rice into onions and butter for a couple minutes. Stir to prevent the rice from browning.

As soon as rice looks milky, pour in boiling wine. Add herbs and salt and pepper. Bring to a boil.

Cover and move to lower third of preheated oven. Reduce the heat in the oven to 350 Cook 30-35 minutes. All the liquid should be absorbed. If it hasn't, put it back in for another 3 minutes at a time.! If the liquid is absorbed but the rice is not tender, add more wine!

Fluff rice with a fork and serve.

I'll let you know how it turns out later tonight!

Edit: the chicken was good, but nothing special. I like the lemon chicken i make better.

The rice, don't even try it. I ate mine even though I didn't like it. Bal took one bite and he was done with it. Same with Allen.
