Dinner Sunday 11/08/09

I was at a lost as to what to have for dinner. I surfed old threads to get ideas. Roast Chicken it is. I have a Purdue Oven Stuffer Chicken in the freezer. I took that out to thaw. If time constraints don't work, the back up plan is Salomon Cakes, Stewed Tomatoes and Mac-Cheese. I will still cook the chicken as I have extended family in town to help with the care of my mother, so on my days off, I plan on cooking enough to keep everyone fed.

I am feeding people I've never met. My sister was in Chicago for a Jazzercise function, and two of her Orlando friends are driving out to spend a few days with us. She's says they're like her, that is to say fairly adventurous, and I made a huge batch of what I call My Cousin Joanna's New Mexico Chili. I hope it works, it is an authentic old western recipe. I'm having doubts now ... maybe I should have done something more traditional? But there is nothing traditional for people from Orlando so might as well go with what I like!

early plans for dinner are meatloaf, taters some how probably mashed, gravy, spinach, steamed carrots or baked sweet tater and acorn squash mash (I may save that for chicken tomorrow).

I baked chocolate chocolate chip muffins this morning, they are yummy!!

My kitchen is still gluten/lactose/casein free today as I am making some more muffins and bread but I should be done by supper. So I am going to make mac and cheese with salami or bacon in it for Dad and I. Probably a side salad or sliced tomatoes.

Yum! I used to make something similar to this for the vegetarians at the camp I cooked at though for the vegans I left off the cheese. I used to like it myself!

have a small piece of fillet Mignon, so gonna sauté onion sliced very thin, lots of mushrooms sautéed , both in olive oil. add thin bits of steak. can't decide whether or not to make pasta or rice to put in on. maybe will just have corn . has carbs but not as much as the starchy grains. ..

need to make something out of very ripe bananas
maybe bread or maybe a cake with pineapple as well.

I threw chunks of pork, onion, and carrots into an oven dish, added some garlic, a large can of diced tomatoes, a little water, soy sauce, and a couple handfuls of Basmati rice, and tossed it in the oven. (Ok, so I didn't really toss it--I didn't need a mess to clean up!). The meat was super tender, and it was all very good.
