okay, thanx for clearing that up. my microwave is getting cracked and I'm thinking that sooner or later, (cuz cracked electronics scare me) I need a replacement. and I'm debating a more space savvvy microwave or a healthier alternative or something. Or a toaster or something.
well, I grew up eating generic american food (no offence, but like waffles, hashbrowns, southern style green beans, etc), but I also grew up eating a lot of albanian food and some native foods ( I live in alaska). I like different kings of asian foods, ie chinese food, thai food...
Okay, right now I'm gonna make a big batch of chicken and rice and lentils, fried-baked chicken, and some kefte (sweet meat balls). but I want to freeze some. do you guys know how long they can safely stay freezed or if they even freeze well at all?
I am trying to make a good batch of chicken and rice and lentils. I have soaked 2 # of brown lentils. and all the recipes I find make the lentils seperate and then serve them on top of rice. and they never have chicken.
any idea how to slow cook these all together?
I was just curious, what is the purpose of a dutch oven? could I just use a clay casserole dish instead? since I can cook acidic in it without any affects anyways? Just curious? also, how does a casserole dish compare to a dutch pot? I get sort of confused between all these different terms...
