Chooky friends just went to see Simply Red, and going by their photos they had plenty of cake, quiches, cheeses and biscuits.

Chicken Caesar Pasta

Ingredients
  • Salt
  • 1 pound penne pasta
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • Ground black pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped or grated
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmigano Reggiano
  • 1/2 head romaine lettuce, finely chopped
Preparation

Place a large pot of water over high heat and bring up to a boil to cook the pasta. Once at a boil, add some salt and the pasta, and cook until al dente, according to package directions. Right before draining, remove and reserve 1 cup of the pasta-cooking water. Drain pasta thoroughly, return to the pot and reserve.

While the pasta is cooking, place a large skillet over medium-high heat with 1 turn of the pan of EVOO, about 1 tablespoon. Season the chicken with salt and ground black pepper, and cook in the pan until golden brown and cooked through, 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from the pan and set aside. When cool enough to handle, chop into bite-size pieces.

While chicken is cooking, place the egg, Dijon, Worcestershire, garlic and lemon juice in a food processor with some salt and pepper. Pulse the processor while drizzling in the canola oil. Add the sauce to the pan of cooked pasta along with the Parmigiano-Reggiano and reserved cup of pasta water.

Return the pan to medium-low heat and cook until most of the liquid has been absorbed and the pasta is coated in sauce, about a minute. Remove from the heat, toss with the lettuce and chopped chicken, and serve.

Shrimp or Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Ingredients
  • 2 hearts of romaine lettuce
  • 1 pound jumbo fully cooked shrimp, from the seafood counter in market
  • 1 rotisserie chicken
  • 4 heaping tablespoons reduced fat mayonnaise
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 2 tablespoons anchovy paste (optional – but the sauce really tastes better with anchovy paste. If you think you don't like anchovies, try them in this sauce. They just taste salty and yummy!)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese (a few handfuls)
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon coarse black pepper (about 1/3 palmful)
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
Preparation

Cut bottoms off the hearts of romaine and cut the heads in half lengthwise. Wash lettuce and separate the leaves. Let dry in a dish draining rack while you prepare the rest of the menu.

  • 12 marinated mushrooms
  • 12 pieces marinated artichoke
  • 12 1-inch wide strips of roasted red peppers
  • 12 small pepperoncini (optional)
  • 1 slab 1-inch thick provolone cheese, cut into 12 cubes
  • 1 slab 1-inch thick Genoa salami from the deli, cubed into 12 bite-size pieces
  • 12 bamboo skewers (8 inches)
Preparation

Make an assembly line of all the ingredients by lining them up in piles in a row on a work surface. The red pepper strips should be rolled up so that they can fit on the bamboo skewers.

Stack the ingredients onto the bamboo skewers in this order: mushroom, artichoke, rolled red pepper strip, pepperoncini (if desired), cheese, salami.

Serve, or pack up for a picnic or a tailgate party in large sealable plastic bags.

No-mayo potato salad
  • 2 1/2 pounds potatoes, cut into quarters lengthwise, then chopped into large chunks
  • 1/2 cup beef consommé or broth
  • 3 tablespoons capers
  • 1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, finely chopped
  • 1/2 medium red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preparation

Place the potatoes in a medium size pot. Fill with cold water and bring to a boil. Add a liberal amount of salt and cook the potatoes until they are tender, about 12-15 minutes. Once the potatoes are tender, drain and return them to the warm pot to dry them out.
Add the beef consomm̩, capers, red bell pepper, celery, onion, lemon zest and juice, red wine vinegar and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Serve either either warm or cold Рit tastes great either way!

Spanish tortilla is nice as picnic food, you could have hummus with vegies to dip and cold meatballs.

Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit, wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

Very kind of you KJJ, suspect chooky's answer won't be terribly polite! I'd be grabbing a hamper and a taxi.....
