What to make for dinner tonight?
I'm on my way to the grocery store. My husband has been away all week, and I'd like to make a nice dinner but I'm feeling uninspired. What should I make? A couple of things you need to know: no local farmers' markets yet, so I'm limited to grocery store produce. He doesn't eat: most cheese, pork, milk with meat, olives, capers, mustard, mayo, bivalves. Thanks, guys!

Anyway, I was just wondering.
Usually I just make a big pot of chili when I'm at a loss for ideas. Or buy some chicken and make enchiladas (I can't have milk, so I usually use daiya (the only fake cheese I've found that melts properly)).

My current favorite way to do the salmon -- heat the oven to 500 degrees. Heat a small baking sheet. Pat the filets dry, spray lightly with olive oil, and season with coarse salt and pepper. Pull out the hot pan, spread some oil on it, place the filets and put the pan back in the oven. Immediately turn the heat down to 220-ish. I found that eight minutes is a good time frame, if the filets are right out of the fridge. Brine 'em a bit, if you have the time. Easier than salt-grilled, and almost as soft.
