11/21/10 Sunday What's Cooking?

Well, the snow has stopped but as usual much melted away and then it froze so we have a sea of ice all around. It is supposed to be freezing for the next few days.

I am putting on a big pot of corn chowder for lunch - may make some biscuits too.

I think tonight will be spaghetti with meatballs for Dad (I will pack the same for DH's dinner at work) and I will have marinara with mushrooms on my noodles.

What's cooking in your kitchen today?


Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffeine-free and loving it!

No plans, really. Clean out the fridge day.

I have a batch of things to run to storage!

We had a late lunch, and I haven't even taken anything out. I think we will have some of the hamburger vegetable soup from the freezer. Hmmm, I don't have time to "think," I'd better know by now! Yep, I'm taking the soup out of the freezer right now!

The rice came out a bit to yellow/orange but it had a great flavor!! Not bad for my first try at saffron rice.

Pan fried pork loin chops (seasoned with garlic & onion powders, salt, peppercorns, thyme, rosemary and poultry seasoning) fried in grapeseed oil, pan gravy (made with flour, chicken broth, salt, ground peppercorns and drippings), saffron rice (jasmine rice, chicken broth, dry minced onion, garlic powder, saffron, Badia Amarillo Yellow Coloring, butter, sea salt & ground peppercorns) and steamed & buttered frozen mixed veggies.

After a big brunch of french toast, bacon and sausage, we just had left overs for dinner. I had lasagna and DH had the cheesy rice then we split the garlic bread.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Pork loin roast, outside done with cracked pepper and lemon zest, Wild rice medley done in some turkey/chicken broth (I made soup today too), peppers, onions, celery and peapods stirfried in EVOO then tossed with a bit of butter and some s&p. Finally, a great big HUGE green salad. It was very delicious!
