Main Dishes

The main course.  That is what I’m generally peculating on as I drive back from the university, or as I’m planning out our menu of meals for the next week.  What to have for dinner…  Some of these recipes are for big holiday celebrations, but most are daily dishes that I serve at home to my own little family.  On any given week night I’m generally trying to get something onto the table as soon as I can.  I’m not a particularly fast cook, and for all of those recipes that promise to take 15 minutes or half an hour, you can easily add on another 15-30 minutes of time for me to actually get those dishes to the table.  So while some of these recipes are quicker (or longer) to carry out than others, my main goal is to create something that tastes great and that you’ll want to cook again and again.  Let’s see if these work for you.
