What's for Dinner
Around five o'clock in the evening, when the pressure mounts about what to have for dinner, you might start to think it would be easier to order in or get something from the freezer. Don't let your family down — make one of these great recipes instead. They may take a bit of time, but they all make six servings, so not only will there be enough to feed the whole family but there might even be some leftovers for you to take for lunch the next day.
- Hunter- Arroz con Pollo — This Mexican staple is a real crowd-pleaser. The sautéed chicken thighs are nice and filling, but it's the spicy rice that is really going to have your whole family cheering, "Olé. "
- Gatherer- Beef Tenderloin with Horseradish-Mustard Crust — If you think broiled beef tenderloin needs an extra kick, this is just the way to do it. The spicy crust not only adds some flavor to the outside but also keeps the inside moist.
- Teacher- Pompano with Ginger-Lime Soy Sauce — Sautéing this light, flaky fish first in olive oil and then in a mixture of soy sauce, honey, lime juice, garlic, and gingerroot will keep the fish from falling apart and will infuse it with exciting flavors.
- Explorer- Creole Catfish Grill — In the South a fish fry is reserved for a big party, but there's no reason you can't try one any night of the week, wherever you live. Using a marinade of Italian dressing and Creole seasoning gives the fish plenty of flavor without overpowering it.
- Warrior- Peanut-Tofu Stir-fry — This is an Asian-inspired dish, not just because of the ingredients but also because of the preparation method. Stir-frying is a quick way to get things done, and it preserves the natural nutritional value of the vegetables and tofu.
- Nomad- Lamb and Artichoke Stew — This dish may not sound like anything special, but your family will pronounce it delicious. Packed with meat, onions, potatoes, and mushrooms, it's as filling as it is tasty.
