Dinner? 1/19

Tonight dinner will be one I got an inspiration from just now reading yesterday's menu ideas. I have plenty of leftovers from last night, but DH took portions to work so not again tonight.

Baked fall-apart pork baby ribs with dry rub and bbq sauce in Saran then 2x's foil wrapped, home baked mac and cheese with crouton breading crumbles on top, 3 squash medley in o/o, garlic, lemon, parm cheese, toatsted sunflower seeds, sourdough toast points rubbed with garlic, classic caesar salad, ramakins of apple creme brulee.

RR has it right when she says that one of the biggest bargains in the supermarket is frozen chopped spinach. I'll add the second best bargain. Jars of applesauce. After making home made apple sauce last night, I can not believe how little it yielded from having used that many apples. Dissappointment and lot's of work. It was good and warm, but not worth the work. Never again for me. I now have a new appreciation for Motts.

cooking anyone?

Wow Lefse,
you made homemade applesauce? Boy, that was work..I just use Mott's and spruce it up a little with cinnamon and a pinch of cloves.
Okay we are having chicken fricasse in glazed shallots, garlic,sherry vinegar,cream and chicken stock, this will go over some angel hair pasta,also peas with proscuitto and mushrooms, salad, and rolls. And I'm going to try making my first coconut cream pie..wish me luck

Here's some luck for you Kadesma! I'm sure it'll be a wonderful pie.

I have no idea what we are having yet... just got out of bed.
Too early to think about dinner yet. : )

We have not made any decisions at all just yet. His initial thought was opening a deli, but I did not want to do that exactly. I would like to open a sandwich shop which could sell deli type sandwiches, but other things as well. I do not want a restaurant though so I would not want waiters and waitresses and stuff like that. Just counter service. There would be places to sit and eat, but no one to serve you. These are all things we need to discuss tonight though. I know his main draw is that right now he works in Boston in the Prudential building and he feels that if we could get a spot in there (very high rent I am sure) then we could do real well. There are a lot of people in that building who live in the suburbs and do not know their way around the city and are scared to explore so they only look for lunch options inside the building. My brother knows the city pretty well (I don't at all) and said there is no where close that you can get a good sandwich. hopefully i will have some good news to share in the upcoming months.

That sounds like a good plan. Are you close the the Prudential building?
Have fun and good luck! I know that you'll do great at what ever you decide.

Thanks

No I am not too close to the Pru right now. It is about an hour or so commute (without traffic), but that is about what my commute to my office is right now.

I do live only a couple of miles from a commuter rail though so I could hop on the train and not have to worry about traffic or parking or anything like that.

I would hope that you would include a couple of soups and salads each day. It would certainly fit in well with your sandwich business - and probably bring in more customers also.

Soups and salads would definitely be on the menu. One of my thoughts was to have a soup/salad bar where you could serve yourself and pay by weight. I could also have specialty salads on the regular menu as well.

I know my brother was interested in comfort food type things so grilled cheese with tomato soup would be a natural.
