We ended up with a chuck roast, rice and cheesy broccoli. Not bad for not knowing what I was going to serve until 3pm! The chuck roast was still mostly frozen so I just left in the oven longer and it still came out nice and tender.

You could have given me a little more warning, Frank! I even have some cake I could have brought!

I don't know what I was thinking earlier when I said mashed potatoes and peas on the side. You simply don't need that with a loco moco.
The jasmine rice was cooked with chicken broth, jalapenos and onion.
The meatloaf patty had egg, Italian crumbs, cheddar, onion, garlic and S&P.
The gravy, besides the fond from the patty cooked in EVOO, had onion and bacon, beef broth and butter.
Desert will be a few minutes yet

It looks like some type of macaroni product with grandma's sauce, one meatball, one Italian sausage link, two slices of Italian bread with butter, and a glass of 2009 Cantine Di Ora Barbera d' Asti

The crispy chicken skin filled me up. I saved the meat, the bones, the bullion water from the carrots and the chicken drippings. I should have a really great gravy for my chicken dinner tomorrow.
