I had made a chili chicken for Sunday’s dinner and had plenty of chicken to work with in making other meals. If the chicken is already cooked, tacos are a quick and easy weeknight meal. If you have not roasted a chicken, a deli chicken makes a good substitute.

Jan’s friends are coming for Stitches—a gathering of knitters— and I thought I would make chicken paprikash for one of their meals. Traditional Hungarian chicken paprikash (Paprikás Csirke) is chicken slowly simmered with pork lard, onions, green peppers and seasoned with paprika and sour cream.

Harissa is a North African condiment of chili and spices. I had never tried it and I thought I would buy a jar of commercial harissa to get an idea of how it was different from other chili pastes. I am afraid it was not a good introductory experience.
I made challah this weekend and it was so successful that I had to make it again. The question was: What do I serve with it? After several rounds of bargaining, Jan and I settled on lamb stuffed bell peppers.

I was shopping with Jan and she saw these mini bell peppers. She wanted them stuffed for her Mother’s Day meal. I decided that I would fill them with taboulah.
