11/20/10 SATURDAY What's Cooking

Wow, I get to start again. I'm working on a new living room arrangement so dinner isn't really a priority yet.

So far, I know I'll be having more of the Lima Bean Soup I made yesterday YUM YUM.

I still have to cook up the zucchini today. I'll either cook it half way and freeze for later, or come up with a main dish, like adding stewed tomatoes and chicken. Wish I had some shrimp.

I'll be making Mushrooms Gratin too.

What are you cooking today?

Love your title Z

Well, the deli heat and serve meatloaf and gravy I picked up yesterday (DH took me on a quick shopping trip to pick up "snow day" supplies. Dad and I were both surprised how good it was. So, I am going to turn it into warm meatloaf sammies for lunch.

One of my other purchases was some beautiful looking pork schnitzels (another thing I make myself but DH insisted I get some quick and easy foods). I am not sure exactly how I'll do them, but one thing for sure is it won't be with applesauce. I have to give Dad his pills in it 5 times a day and even though I mix up the flavours we are both getting a little tired of it

SO won't eat pork without a little bit of applesauce. Roasts, stuffed chops, chops in gravy all require applesauce.

Yeah, the standard in both my family and DH's is applesauce with all types of pork other than ham and then it is pineapple!

Maybe I can mix his right-after-dinner pills up and instead of serving them in a little glass dish I'll put them on the plate as part of his dinner

Thanks, LPB It works better. In date order, clarifying day of week, and open to more than just dinner. We make a good team.

I will probably try out a mashed potato and carrot with ham casserole.

I'm doing carne asada tonight. I have about 3 lbs of skirt steak marinating and ready for grilling tonight. A friend brought over a couple of bottles of Trader Joe's Pinot Noir the other day so we'll have some of that too...

I am going to do up some talapia filets, and mac 'n cheese with some smoked gouda.

Thanks for the reminder Z., I thought of this at 4 this morning while I was tending to some business, I need to get the fish out of the freezer!

Smoked provolone, somebody ate the gouda...:)
