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

It's a gloomy, rainy day, so I'm making happy food - pasta. I plan on tossing together: prosciutto ribbons, arugula, ricotta, shallot, all mixed with linguine. Topping it with chopped walnuts; can't decide between Romano or Parma cheese as the "snow". Probably a salad on the side.

Your plans?

Cooked up some burger and seasonings, have lettuce, will travel, so it looks like taco salads!

Well, I was thinking Chinese stir-fry, since DH was supposed to go to the store today, but since it's pouring down rain and threatening a tornado, that's deferred. So, Plan B: I'm going to make chicken schnitzel with spätzle and braised green beans. 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.

I'm thinking about making cheese enchiladas and heating up a can of refried black beans as a side. Sure does sound good. But....the big beautiful artichokes sitting in the fridge are calling my name, so it might end up being one of those with a big bowl of watermelon on the side. Decisions, decisions....

I'm defrosting a meal of minestrone soup and a ball of pizza dough. I'm going to make baguette-type bread from the dough.

Dinner is an elite repeat from yesterday- sloppy joe's on party size buns, fools me into thinking I have a lot on my plate and they're only half the size. Also will slice some more cabbage for cole slaw. Good thing I like cole slaw as I have about a half cabbage.

We survived the tornado warning. It got a bit dicey there for a while but no damage done. In light of the fact that the next wave of tornado activity will be here around suppertime and choir rehearsal, the church cancelled choir. Hence, I get to stay home tonight. I put a ham in the oven and a pan of scalloped cabbage. It's smelling really good!

I had to use up an egg white (dislike freezing them) so I made a variation on my chinese style chicken recipe. I used turkey.

It involves mixing eggwhite with cornflour (I used potato flour), crushed garlic and soy. Marinade the chunked poultry for at least 20 mins and then fry in this 'batter' mix. Very tasty. The batter seals in the flavour and the garlic and soy give it extra taste.

Had it with toasted sour dough bread, lambs lettuce and ketchup!
