Dinner, October 11th

whatcha cooking tonight?

depending on the familial vote, i'm either going to make a pasta dish with the beef tenderloin trimmings, as college cook suggested in another thread. or possibly beef stroganoff, as per andy. or finally, i may make a variation on my tnt roasted chicken with gravy.

i made a version of a drunken chicken last week, using a method of steaming the bird in white wine and aromatics in a large saute, then roasting it in the same pan to finish. the pan gravy was very good, but i think i could improve on the technique and overall flavor by raising the bird up on a rack, stuffing it with the some of the aromatics (onion, lemon, garlic, rosemary), adding my dry rub, and using the wine just for basting and to create the gravy.

I made a venison chili tonight and we'll be having the leftover tomorrow. Very yummy.

Tonight I'm making meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gravy, and green beans cooked with garlic and a can of diced tomatoes.

I'll be there! That's one of my fave meals, and I haven't had it in a long time.

We've got enough leftover chicken and dressing for tonight. We broke it up with Maid Rites last night, so we didn't get burnt out on the chicken.

Since we're just getting settled back in, I'm going to keep it simple and just make cheese ravioli with tomato sauce with lots of extra veggies added in. If I get up the energy to go out in the rain, I'll pick up the fixings for garlic bread.

I have no idea yet. Just home from vaca.
In my "real" kitchen now and don't know if I remember how to use one.
Not lacking in the food department, must ask husband what he's fancying and I'll go from there.

I found half a meatloaf sandwich from Boston Market stashed back in the corner of the refrigerator. It's from Kitty Adoptions lunch this past Saturday. I'm gonna nuke it and eat it with a cup of macaroni salad left over from Labor Day. I hope it's still good!

What I make will depend on who's coming to dinner. I have one border and a DH who are sick and another border writing a final exam and may go out to either celebrate or drown sorrows! Probably end up with a pot of my chicken soup that everyone can help themselves when they feel like it. Hmmmm now it's got me thinking - some biscuits to go with that.... an apple crisp for dessert! Ahh for comfort food. But the meatloaf sounds good too (and if I make enough I have some left for sandwiches).
