Those Who Have Died
by Suicide





fresh chopped parsley
1 med.-lg. bell pepper
salt & pepper
boiled eggs (for garnish)
black olives (for garnish)


codfish (or any fish), 3-4 fillets
6-8 med. potatoes
olive oil
1 clove garlic thinly sliced
1 med. onion


If you are using salted codfish (Bacalhau), soak in water 24 hours before preparing, changing the water frequently. Chop the garlic (I like to leave some cloves whole) and sauté in olive oil until clear and set aside. Peel and quarter the potatoes and boil them until the are about 1/2 - 3/4 done (depends on the thickness of the fillets)and set aside. Coat a large Pyrex baking dish with olive oil. Place the fillets in the pan and add salt and pepper to taste. Add the garlic and potatoes and sprinkle olive oil over everything
again. Add the parsley, and cover with foil. Place in a preheated oven 350°. After about 10 to 15 minutes, add thinly sliced peppers and onions to the top and leave uncovered. Cook until potatoes are nice and golden brown, You can garnish with thinly sliced hard boiled eggs and black olives. Serves 4 - 6.

1 jar spaghetti sauce
1/2 c. red cooking wine
salt, pepper, oregano, & garlic salt to season
optional: rice or noodles
1 pkg. fresh mushrooms (Portobella is
my favorite), sliced
3 large bell peppers (red or green), sliced
2 lg. Vidalia onions, sliced
1/2 clove garlic, diced
extra virgin olive oil
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts or  thighs, cut into small chunks

Cover the bottom of a large pot with olive oil, saute the fresh garlic until slightly
brown - DON'T BURN. Brown chicken pieces on all sides over medium heat. Then take your pepper, onion, and mushroom slices and toss into the pot. Add your cooking wine. Cover and let steam for about 10 minutes, stirring to make sure it does not stick. When veggies are starting to get a little soft, add your spaghetti sauce and lower the heat to a simmer. Add spices to taste. You can eat it just as is or boil rice or noodles to put it over. Serves about 6-8 people.

Note: When my kids were little they thought it was called kitchen cacciatore. They used to help me make it, each having a job peeling or cutting (dull knife of course). Well, one day we all got silly and the kids started singing kitchen cacciatore kitchen cacciatore and banging on the table going round and round. It was sooooo cute.

May the road rise to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sunshine warm upon your face, the rains fall soft upon your fields and, until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.
