Still too early for my brain. Something with ground beef as that is what is thawed at the moment; perhaps Ol Blue's bacon cheeseburger meatloaf.

Another new recipe. Peaches n Cream Pork Chops. I used to work at a restaurant that had it on the menu and it was to die for. I hope I do a decent job replicating it. It calls for some white wine in the peach sauce though... can I sub something for that? Planning to serve it with baked sweet potatoes.

I had a late night request for pizza, thus precluding any chance at a no-knead pizza crust. So the bread machine went to work this morning and by 10:00 am I was pulling the first of two pizzas out of the oven; made with home canned pizza sauce, sauteed onions and green peppers, some goat ricotta that had been aimlessly roaming about the frig, some parmesan and mozzarella cheeses and topped with a generous amount of chopped honey baked ham. My MIL sent along a ham with dh's brother who is visiting for the weekend.

I was taught that you can almost always substitute chicken stock for white wine. Depending on the dish, I might substitute red wine or beer.

In this recipe I would sub with water. But that is just me.
Swiss Steak, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Buttermilk Biscuits and probably Brussels Sprouts. Buttermilk Spice cake with Egg nogg Ice Cream.

Do you happen to have a small squash? Zuck or Yellow? You could steam that add salsa and a little corn. It makes a nice veggie side dish. And cook the Chicken of course.
