Dinner 2-24-2016 ~ What's it gonna be Wednesday?

The "baguettes" I made from the pizza dough turned out OK considering I didn't pay a lot of attention to detail. Here's one of the two I made. Click image for larger version

Kinda cute, Andy. The baguette, that is - can't make a judgement call on you since you didn't post your photo.

jabbur, glad to hear you made it through round one. Hope you, and everyone, dealing with stormy weather comes out on the clear side just fine.

Dinner was "ermahgerd" good, to quote a favorite phrase of our younger niece. A bit on the salty side, though, so I probably could have gone with only half of the prosciutto, or next time I might use pancetta. So easy, though, and really cheap, too, so I can see making some variation of this frequently. The sauce was basically pasta water and ricotta - very creamy, easy-peasy, and better for the waistline than an Alfredo sauce.

Nice looking baguette, Andy. CG, your pasta dinner looks so good!
I decided to go with the cheese enchilada dinner and will have the artichoke tomorrow. I only had a little Cojita cheese left and rather than save a tiny bit, I just dumped it on everything. Pretty yummy (although a little blurry), and there's enough leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

I'm also going to make a chicken gravy for the noodles with pan drippings, caramelized onions and homemade beer mustard. Getting the onions started now.
This turned out *really* good, although I forgot to put the mustard in the gravy. I did put a tbsp or so of Penzey's Fox Point seasoning in the flour for the chicken breading. I think that made a big difference. Mmmm.

Our "Rusty Pelican" salad, greenleaf lettuce, steamed shrimp, chopped boiled egg, chopped tomato and homemade knock-off recipe from the restaurant honey mustard dressing, with some bread.

Not consciously, but we weren't having bread for a long time with our meals then we both started having bread cravings, so we seem to have swung the opposite way in the bread with meals spectrum.
