"RE: OTCC - Have Some Madeira M'Dear"
Posted by samboohoo on 01-01-11 at 09:40 PM
I should have paid better attention to your photo. I had half & half on hand, but I bought some plain old whipping cream. My local grocer used to carry "light cream," but the new "Giant" doesn't. Oh well. I also bought heavy whipping cream.

There was no madeira to be found nearby. I didn't want to drive across town. I almost bought Port, but it looked to be red, and I didn't want to pay $10 for the big bottle of white port, which I would have never used all of. So after consulting, I went with dry sherry.

I used Uncle Ben's, and I did make too much rice. I thought we were having a guest for dinner, who didn't make it.

Everything was really good. I seem to struggle with getting my OTCC recipe sauces to thicken, despite following the directions. It was fine, just not thick. Maybe I don't boil them enough?

I worried about DH liking it, as the sauce was strong IMO. But he liked it - said it just needed a little salt. I almost made green beans, but thought we had enough food.

Also, I made a salad, no pecans. I used blue cheese because I like the pairing better with a raspberry vinaigrette. I used Kraft's Light version. I think I prefer Ken's, but the Kraft was on sale. I'm all about budgeting better in 11.

Very good Querty! I have been hitting and missing OTCC, so I'm glad I got this one.

Interestingly enough, I had madeira on hand a while ago for a filet recipe I'm going to try. I thought I still had it, but I now remember dropping the bottle and breaking it. Next time I head over to another part of town, I will stopp by Total Wine to get some more.
