Anyone eating dinner tonight? Saturday 1-23-16

Leftover spaghetti for dinner this evening. A simple salad with Italian dressing, and garlic bread will accompany.

What's on everyone's plate tonight?

I had some shrimp in the freezer that were getting kind of frosty so I thawed them, peeled them, covered them with a sauce made of butter, olive oil, loads of crushed garlic and red pepper, baked them in a screaming hot oven for a few minutes and called it scampi! I was wishing for a little white wine and a loaf of bread to dunk into the sauce, I settled for a salad!

Kaesespaetzle. Craig's bacon that he cured from part of the last pork belly we bought was a bit salty and not really tender (followed recipe for first time). So, I boiled it a bit in water, drained, then dumped the pieces in with some onions I had started carmelizing on the stovetop and baked at 325 for probably about 45 minutes. Made the spaetzle dough (dotter as we decided to call it on a previous thread) to let it rest. Used Emmentaler cheese to make a cheese sauce, saving some for top. Drained the spaetzle after I cooked them, sauted in a bit of butter and oil, then mixed the spaetzle with the onion/bacon mixture with the cheese sauce, added the rest of the cheese to the top and baked for about 30 minutes, 350 for 20, 400 for 10. It ended up looking like this.



Came out pretty darn good. Craig said he'd eat the cheese sauce, with a little white wine addition, as a great fondue any day.

Leftover proteins (ribs, chicken, and fish) with a new veggie. I'm getting ready to fry up some pancetta, then toss in some frozen peas and a sprinkle of crushed red pepper. Also making a creamy mushroom sherry sauce to use on the chicken. Hopefully all the leftovers are gone today, so I can start making fresh ones tomorrow.

My mouth is watering over that Med! Elegant mac and cheese to be sure! Kaesespaetzle. Just one bite....pleeeeze!

I'm roasting a pan full of marinated chicken wings sitting on my silicone little pyramids mat. That thing does a great job! SC will have some canned chili with them and we'll both have salads.

I put this together yesterday:
Sweet Italian Sausage-Spinach-Three Cheese Stuffed Shells
I took the two smaller aluminum pans, some bread, salad and a bottle of wine over to the home of a neighbor who passed away on Wednesday.

The big pan was for DH, `cuz he's a brat (not really, I tease ), can you see the three missing shells there at the top right of the photo? SOMEONE got into the pan before I got up, "WHAT? I was hungry and you were still asleep, so I made myself breakfast." (please add whiny 10 year boy's voice here ) ...
the last ten minutes, I sprinkled some parm & mozz over the top to melt
