Sorry I thought you wanted to cook it. If you want to just buy it you can find it at a grocery store. That's where people go to buy food.
Yes, I want to cook it, but I ain't found no grocery stores round here what sell it.

This week I'm thinking pasta soup and chicken enchiladas, with a side of rice.

I'm already sharp. And yeah, I got me some provolone sliced and unsliced. Got no bread though so the ploughman's lunch is out.

Oh good,,, then my having mentioned some green stuff in my recent post will come in handy for you. Green stuff goes well with pasta. Bet you thought I didn't know that. Rapini or Broccoli Raab would be great wtih pasta soup and chicken enchiladas. Add some Greek type yogurt to the soup. Or if you can find a water buffalo that has been fed on emptied poppy husks, use its milk as the basis of a yogurt: most delicious combination of fat and sugar you will ever have.

Coconut and Pineapple Chicken with Noodles:

200 gr. long, flat noodles cooked and drained
4 chicken milanesas, cooked and cut in bite-sized strips
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1 bell pepper thinly sliced
2 cloves of garlic minced
1 cup diced pineapple with only a little syrup (preferably "light" syrup with less sugar)
1 1/3 cup coconut milk
3-4 scoops cottage cheese
2-3 scoops plain yogurt without sugar
1/4 tsp. curry powder
1/4 tsp. ground turmeric
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. fine herbs
Ground pepper to taste
3 tsp. corn starch mixed in 1/4 cup cold water

First cook the chicken with a little oil in a large, deep pan. It's easier to cook the milanesas whole and then cut them in strips. Meantime in a blender mix the coconut milk, cottage cheese and yogurt, and liquefy the mix. When you're done with the chicken, cook the onion, bell pepper and garlic, adding pepper here, until the onion is very soft. Set aside.

Now on the same pan, cook the pineapple bits (with or without the syrup) for a little while, until you get some browning here and there. Add the blended mix and let it slowly warm up on minimum heat. When it's warm, add the herbs and spices and mix well. When it begins to bubble, add the corn starch mixed with water and stir. Add the cooked veggies and chicken and mix well. If you have room in the pan, add the noodles and mix the whole thing. If not, do the mixing with the noodles in a serving bowl.

And I paired this with

Mashed potatoes with coconut milk (yes, too much coconut in one meal):

5-6 medium potatoes, peeled, cooked and mashed (in that order)
1-2 tsp. butter or margarine
1 1/3 cup coconut milk
A pinch of curry powder.

Cook and mash your potatoes. I recommend cutting them in small pieces, as they'll cook faster. Melt the butter in a pan on low heat, add the milk, add the curry, mix well, add the potatoes and mix well.
