I had thought of cutting the corn off the cob so it truly would be a skillet meal, but I prefer it on the cob, so there :P .

Potato and green chile stew
Mushroom, green bean, and chicken casserole
 
The stew is a Deborah Madison recipe I found on the Food 52 site.  It's simple and made two decent portions.  The casserole was something I threw together out of what was on hand.  It needed something else. Since I didn't want to add noodles or potatoes, I left a starch/grain component out, but it needed that.  I think I'll cook up a wild rice mix to add to the leftovers to tie it together a little better.

Lentil Sausage Soup
Halibut Alla Milanese
Steamed broccoli
 
I'm back to trying to justify my cookbook collection by actually making recipes from the books.  Last night, we had a wonderful lentil soup from Ina Garten's Barefoot in Paris (and I don't care much for lentils, so that's saying something) and an adaptation of a breaded, pan-fried halibut recipe from Jonathan Waxman's Italian, My Way.  The soup recipe called for kielbasa to be added at the end, so buying fresh sausage labeled kielbasa at Whole Foods was probably the wrong decision.  (I had pondered over buying turkey kielbasa in a vacuum pack and that probably would have been more suitable.)  I almost halved the recipe because it makes a lot but went ahead and made the whole amount.  We have a lot of delicious soup left over now.
 
The fish recipe called for four 1" halibut steaks, which was way too much for two people.  The steaks they had at Whole Foods were so large that working with just one looked challenging.  Instead I bought one piece of halibut fillet, that was about 1 1/4" thick and 1 1/3 lbs.  The breading technique was interesting in that it said that the flour-dredged fish could stay in the egg - cream mixture for up to an hour before being dredged in fresh bread crumbs (I used panko instead).  The fish was amazingly moist, and I'm not sure if that had something to do with its hourlong egg & cream bath or not.  Wow, that was good fish.  I'm remembering the technique, which is the only part of the recipe I actually followed :rolleyes: .
