Dinner Sunday 10th March

Tonight we are doing a healthier twist on Jamies Sausage Carbonara :)

Using lite cream instead of full, bacon instead of pancetta, pork sausages instead of italian...we have made the original and it is the tastiest recipe ever, but very high in sat fat, so need to curb it a bit...I am sure this way will still taste great :thumb

All the talk on the canned tomato thread got my mouth watering for some sauce.

Today it is meatballs, sausage and broccoli parmigiana.

I am using a can Cento crushed today, no paste someone ran off with my last can.

The worst part of living alone is that you have no one to blame when you reach into the pantry for a can of paste and its gone!

I'll b making a Bolognese-style lasagna using Pastene whole plum tomatoes. A caesar salad and a bottle of red should complete the meal. SO's chocolate layer cake will serve nicely as dessert tonight.

Sounds good. Home fries are a good use for bacon grease.

I'm thinking smothered pork chops with onion gravy over mashed potatoes with green beans. We have leftover lemon cheesecake from yesterday for dessert.

Last night I worked up some fresh, sweetened strawberries and am thinking they will go over some pancakes.
