What's for Dinner?

Hmmmm … What shall I make for dinner?
”Joe’s Tabula Rasa Crust Pizza”
In case you’re Latin’s a little rusty, the phrase ”tabula rasa” means ”blank state” … so you take the tabula rasa crust, which is flavored with classic Italian herbs, and create your own masterpiece by adding a little olive oil and your favorite toppings. “Magnifico!!!”
”Joe’s Chicken Pomodoro”
Fire-grilled, boneless, skinless chicken breasts topped with diced tomatoes, strips of yellow squash, roasted zucchini slices, Provolone cheese and pomodoro and pesto sauces … add the rice, pasta or potato dish of your choice and “Voila!!!”
”Joe’s Trout Fillets in Oil & Brine”
Oh yeah! Laid over a bed of greens and drizzled with the oil/brine mixture, maybe combine it with some sun dried tomatoes and Arugala on focaccia and make it a completely unique Panini. “Awesome!!!”
”Joe’s Gazpacho Soup”
I can start off with this … Take some tomato, cucumber, onion, green pepper, lots of garlic, cilantro and some jalapeno pepper … “BAMMM!!!! Refreshing because it’s served cold.
Let’s see … for dessert …
”Joe’s Flan Parfait Cake”
I know what you’re asking yourself. Is it Flan? Is it Parfait? Is it cake? Well let me tell you. Begin with a layer of dark, moist chocolate cake. Add a very subtle touch of caramel on top. Then, top that with a thick tier of creamy flan and cap that with thin layer of dark chocolate. But wait … we’re not finished yet. The dark chocolate on top is next covered with a truly luxurious layer of whipped cream with just a bit of a caramel crown. “Heaven!!!!”
I just love reading my Trader Joe’s monthly flyer.
