Dinner Monday, 6-8-2015 ~ Funday Monday?

It wasn't much fun earlier today, when a water main broke and we were left high and dry. But wait, does that mean we have a real reason to go out and eat? Then the water came back on less than four hours later. Dining at home tonight.

I have three kinds of leftovers: burger with grilled onions, beef fajita with fixings, or yesterday's garlic-lime grilled pork. All I have to do is make a big salad (now that I can wash the veggies) and spread out the buffet.

What dinner delights will you be enjoying today?

LOL we posted at about the same time, CG!

Eggplant casserole!

I found the recipe here: Cheesy Eggplant Casserole Recipe - Allrecipes.com

I add a little bit of Montreal steak seasoning and just a little fresh basil to the eggplant slices and a little bit of Worcestireshire sauce mixed in with the cheese on top. Yum!

We'll be having a garden salad and fresh steamed green beans with it.

We have a veritable plethora of leftovers. Why do I always make enough food for a third world country?

Haven't been home long enough to have any leftovers. Am baking a meatloaf but that will be for DH's lunch box this week. Will fix a repeat of a few days ago, mixed stir fried veggies with a chicken teriyaki sauce.

Grilled matured sirloin steak (a treat), steamed cauliflower and a kind of sauteed potato (thinly sliced and turned in a pan - with oil and butter - lid on, till crisp and soft).

Had stuffed cannelloni with marinara sauce.
Had some ricotta, mozzarella and parmesan I had planned to use
to make ravioli...at the last minute I got lazy and went with the cannelloni.
Left over pineapple upside down cake for dessert.

I just put together this baked beans recipe from Trisha Yearwood: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/t...ked-beans.html It tastes amazing right now - will be even better once it bakes and the sugars caramelize

I'm also going to chop up some more of the smoked pork we made yesterday and simmer it in barbecue sauce. DH will have more cole slaw and I'll have carrot sticks with ranch dressing.

The freezer in the basement has offered up a container of tomato sauce with meatballs and sausage. In honor of that offering, I will cook up some spaghetti to our desired degree of doneness and sup with gusto as I alternately sip from a goblet of fine red wine. The gods have been kind.

I have a meatloaf in the oven, looking forward more for cold sammies this week, and a couple extra potatoes baking alongside. I was thinking fried 'taters later this week too, but now I'm thinking potato salad might be better. Kinda like this planning ahead stuff. Makes life easier.

And I bought some deli bean salad which I promptly redressed with a less sweet vinaigrette.
