I'm making roasted red pepper, brocolli, cheesy, potato chowder. First time I'm making it, who knows how it will be. I'm gonna bake some jalapeņo cornbread too.
Dessert is chocolate oatmeal cookies.

I just popped my corn bread in the oven, after removing my shepherd's pie from heating up.
I'll be eating early tonight, so I guess this will have to be called lunch, since all I had at noon was a big piece of cheddar cheese and some Ritz crackers.

Hmmm, what's for dinner....

I think I will cook the last of the frozen flounders, with baked potatoes and broccoli.

I fixed one of my favorite casseroles, taco lasagna, with a side of homegrown sweet corn simply heated with s&p and butter, and whole wheat dinner rolls

taco lasagna was a contest winning recipe in the magazine Quick Cooking several years back, and kept coming up in editorials as families favorite recipe. I have modified it somewhat but here goes.

1 pound ground meat
1/2 cup green pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
2/3 cup water
1 envelope taco seasoning ( I make my own and use 1/4 cup)
1 15 oz. can black beans drained
1 15 oz. can diced tomatoes UNdrained (I use home canned chili sauce)
1 16 oz. can refried beans
6 tortillas 8 inch
3 cups shredded cheese

cook meat, pepper and onion over med heat. Add water and taco seasoning, bring to boil and simmer 2 minutes. Stir in black beans and tomatoes (chili sauce) and the can of refried beans. Simmer 10 minutes. I find I use most of the 10 minutes breaking up and incorporating the refried beans.
Oil a 9x13 baking dish, layer two tortillas, 1/2 bean/meat mixture and 1 cup cheese. Two more tortillas, rest of sauce and 1 cup cheese. Final 2 tortillas and 1 cup cheese. Cover and bake at 350*F for 30 minutes.

Very tasty..

This is getting printed. I love tacos! and anything to do with them. I may crumble some hard taco shells on top right before it's done.

Thank you.

We're going to order a pizza, and I might fix a salad to go with. I've got all the right stuff.
