Some kind of pasta dish with panchetta, chopped fresh tomatoes, peppers, and whatever else needs to get used up.

It's a sauce / gravy that goes well with lean pot roasted meats-
  • 2 T flour
  • 2 T butter
  • 2 C broth
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1/4 t pepper
  • 1/2 - 3/4 c sour cream
  1. Make a roux of the flour and butter and cook for 3 - 4 minutes.
  2. Whisk in the broth and heat until it begins to bubble and thicken.
  3. Add the salt and pepper.
  4. Take off the heat and add the sour cream,whisking to incorporate.

Didn't make it to the store so will go later and get the chicken for tomorrow. Instead am defrosting some hamburger meat and will make taco salads, each with the foods we can eat - mine will be without sour cream, black olives, tortilla chips and cheese. TB's will have his special cheese and everything I can't.

Edit: TB has decided he wants tacos and I will have taco salad!

Forgot to take anything out of the freezer last night or this morning. I have some pork chops in a sink full of water to thaw. I will find some veggies to have with it, and will fix something else for Hubby to enjoy. Perhaps rice or potatoes of some kind. I'm not quite sure yet.
No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best!

Nuked some fresh asparagus, and dipped it in Knorr Hollandaise sauce.

I was inspired by Roch's Pork Belly, so I used up the rest of the pork loin in the fridge (before it could go off) and made a pork roast. We had it with rødkål and mashed root vegis.
