Tabouleh (my most favourite salad), done RevSarah-Style:

What you need:
1/2 C dry bulgur wheat
1/4 C olive oil (or some more if you like it rich:)
2 cloves garlic
bunch of parsley
bunch of cilantro
3 mint leaves
english cucumber
2 large tomatoes, preferrably fresh and not refrigerated
4 green onions or 1 red onion

How to cook bulgur:

Boil 3/4 C water, place bulger in, turn off heat, and let sit for 1/2 hour (do this part first)

Place in a plastic container:

1/4 C olive oil
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 C each chopped parsley and cilantro
3 mint leaves
1/3 C lemon juice (fresh tastes the best)

Put lid on plastic container and shake well.

In a medium-large glass bowl, gently fold together cucumber, tomatoes and onions.

Once bulgur is cooled to room temp, add mixture from container to coat, then add coated bulgur to veggie mixture. Refrigerate for 1/2-1 hour and enjoy.

This recipe is a lot of work, but if you love to chop and dice, it is a perfect thing to do while listening to your favourite tunes.

Lastly, this is a great dish for fall and winter. Bring on a great salad and some good bread and butter. Lovely. yummy. :D

Disclaimer...Not vegetarian, veggan, low salt, low fat, Atkins friendly, etc...just damn GOOD!

CHICKEN CINELLI - Makes 8 servings

6 strips bacon
1 chicken cut up ? half the chicken breast
1 pound white mushrooms, sliced
1 teaspoon salt
? cup chopped parsley
3 garlic cloves finely chopped
2 14 oz cans chicken broth (3 and ? cups)
2 6 oz cans tomato paste
1 cup red wine
? teaspoon ground black pepper
1 ? - 2 pounds potatoes, peeled and cut into pieces
4 large carrots peeled and sliced ? inch thick
1 8 1/2 oz can lima beans drained
1 6 oz dry weight pitted black olives, drained
1 16 oz jar pearl onions, drained

In a large covered bacon until crisp. Remove, crumble and set aside. Brown chicken in bacon fat, then remove and set aside. Add mushrooms and salt to skillet and saut? for 3 minutes. Add parsley and garlic and saut? for 2 more minutes.

In a bowl blend together broth, tomato paste, wine and pepper. There?s too much volume for one skillet so place half the mushroom mixture into a second covered skillet. Stir half the broth mixture and bacon into each skillet. To each skillet add half the chicken, potatoes, carrots, lima beans, olives and onions. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook for 1 ? hours . Turn chicken halfway through cooking.

p.s. there is a big enough skillet to cook this and it's at my house. lol

Looks like we're gonna be needing this what with the ml stuff ( math conversions :oops: , spinning again)

Converting Between Standard English and Metric Units
Common Measurement Conversions in Recipes
1 cup = 24 centiliter (cl) or 240 milliliter (ml)
1 tablespoon (tbsp) = 15 milliliter (ml)
1 teaspoon (tsp) = 5 milliliter (ml)
1 fluid ounce (oz) = 30 milliliter (ml)
1 pound (lb) = 454 grams (gm)

Weight
1 ounce = 28.35 grams
1 pound = 453.59 grams
1 gram = 0.035 ounce
100 grams = 3.5 ounces
1000 grams = 2.2 pounds
1 kilogram = 35 ounces
1 kilogram = 2.2 pounds

Volume
1 milliliter = 1/5 teaspoon
1 milliliter = 0.03 fluid ounce
1 teaspoon = 5 milliliters
1 tablespoon = 15 milliliters
1 fluid ounce = 30 milliliters
1 fluid cup = 236.6 milliliters
1 quart = 946.4 milliliters
1 liter (1000 milliliters) = 34 fluid ounces
1 liter (1000 milliliters) = 4.2 cups
1 liter (1000 milliliters) = 2.1 fluid pints
1 liter (1000 milliliters) = 1.06 fluid quarts
1 liter (1000 milliliters) = 0.26 gallon
1 gallon = 3.8 liters

Temperature
Conversion formulas:
?C = (?F - 32) X 5/9
?F = (?C X 9/5) + 32
32?F = 0?C
40?F = 4.4?C
100?F = 37.7?C
200?F = 93.3?C
225?F = 107.2?C
250?F = 121.1?C
275?F = 135?C
300?F = 148.9?C
325?F = 162.8?C
350?F = 176.7?C
375?F = 190.6?C
400?F = 204.4?C
425?F = 218.3?C
450?F = 232.2?C
475?F = 246.1?C
500?F = 260?C

Distance
1 inch = 2.5 centimeters
1 foot = 30 centimeters
1 millimeter = 0.04 inch
1 centimeter = 0.4 inch
1 meter = 3.3 feet

Abbreviations
Standard English
cup = C
fluid cup = fl C
fluid ounce = fl oz
fluid quart = fl qt
foot = ft
gallon = gal
inch = in
ounce = oz
pint = pt
pound = lb
quart = qt
tablespoon = T or Tbsp
teaspoon = t or tsp
yard = yd

Metric
millimeter = mm
centimeter = cm
meter = m
kilometer = km
milliliter = mL
liter = L
milligram = mg
gram = g
kilogram = kg

Unusual Weights and Measures
1 bit = 2 pinches
1 smidgen = 4 bits
1 dollop = 2 smidgens
1 gaggle = 3 dollops
1 gaggle = 2 glugs
1 blanket = 2 glugs
1 smothering = 3 blankets

LIQUID MEASUREMENTS vs. DRY MEASUREMENT
***The table below shows the differences between dry measurement and liquid measurement

DRY UNIT/LIQUID UNIT
1 pint, dry = 1.1636 pints, liquid
1 quart, dry = 1.1636 quarts, liquid
1 gallon, dry = 1.1636 gallons, liquid

WEIGHT
The two most commonly used units of weight (or mass) measurement for cooking in the U.S. are the ounce and the pound. Do not confuse the ounce of weight with the fluid ounce, because they are not the same; there is no standard conversion between weight and volume unless you know the density of the ingredient. To make matters worse, there are different kinds of weight measurement; Avoirdupois weight, Troy weight, and Apothecaries weight. In the U.S., when someone refers to pounds and ounces of weight (especially in cooking) they are usually referring to Avoirdupois weight.

Basic Cooking Rule:
16 ounces = 1 pound

In the U.S., when someone refers to pounds and ounces of weight (especially in cooking) they are usually referring to Avoirdupois weight.
Note: The standard Avoirdupois pound of the United States is equivalent to the weight of 27.7015 cubic inches of distilled water at 62[deg] Fahrenheit, the barometer being at 30 inches, and the water weighed in the air with brass weights. In this system of weights 16 drams make 1 ounce, 16 ounces 1 pound, 25 pounds 1 quarter, 4 quarters 1 hundred weight, and 20 hundred weight 1 ton. The above pound contains 7,000 grains, or 453.54 grams, so that 1 pound avoirdupois is equivalent to 1 31-144 pounds troy. (See Troy weight.) Formerly, a hundred weight was reckoned at 112 pounds, the ton being 2,240 pounds (sometimes called a long ton) Dictionary.com.

Metric weights are for sissies. Anybody can multiply and divide by 10. :wink: :lol:
