With cocktails we'll have roasted garlic-rosemary spread on Melba toast. For dinner I'm preparing a pork loin with raspberry sauce, roasted potatoes and haricot verts. Just pulled a shoofly pie out of the oven for dessert.

I'm going to have to go look up what a shoofly pie is. Your dinner sounds very good.

Redkitty, I love ratatouille and also love making it; however no one else here is that into vegetables so when I make it I make it for me and end up eating it for many days. When I cooked at camp last year we had several vegetarians on staff (as well as campers each week) and I would make it almost once a week - they loved it!

Tonight is a sirloin tip roast with mashed potatoes, roasted carrots, yorkshire pudding and gravy with a green salad. That's for the guys. I am going to have the salad with some cheese, seeds and dried fruit added, and some lentil soup I have had in the freezer.
Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffiene-free and loving it!

Cheesey potato soup
Fresh baked bread
Fresh baked cinnamon rolls...

All from scratch. A pretty big feat for me!

Angie, good for you! I rarely attempt yeast bread but I should do it more often, especially this time of year. Hope everything was enjoyed, and appreciated.

Tonight is lasagna and a tossed salad I believe. My dad made a french bread loaf, just like the one we had a week or so ago (it was delicious), except this time it turned out a little differently. Looks more like flatbread to me.
Gone. Like yesterday is gone.

I made the no-knead flatbread crust and topped it with roasted garlic olive oil, dried oregano, caramelized onions, roasted red peppers, marinated artichoke hearts, chopped leftover roast chicken, and mozzarella and parmesan cheeses. Turned out great. We had green salads on the side, and I finished off with a bowl of butter pecan ice cream. Don't know why, but I've been craving ice cream lately, even though it's cold

Tonight I cooked a pound of baby Calamari in a jar of unbelievably hot & spicy Trader Joe's Arrabbiatta pasta sauce. First time in my life I didn't have to add a single thing to jazz up a jarred sauce!! Served it over some Barilla linguini, along with a nice crisp Romaine lettuce salad.

We had the left over Burger Dogs. Was not a day for cooking today. We have a busy week. Having a dinner party next weekend, so we rested this weekend other than tearing the kitchen apart.

No beans unless they are green or jelly...
