Dinner Thirsty Thursday ~ 3-16-2017

We have three days of leftovers, so it's Cook's Night Off. We'll just heat-and-heat when the tummies grumble.

What are your food plans for tonight?

Baked Mac and Cheese. I had a very large bundle of cheese ends in the freezer and Pirate wanted to put them to use. He likes bread crumbs on his, I don't. We compromised. Half and half.

Having friends over for dinner. Chicken tenders, roast red peppers, crimini mushrooms, artichoke hearts, black olives, and capers, served with fresh penne pasta, garden salad, and a baguette I picked up at the bakery this morning. Wine will take care of the thirsty component.

I've got a brined turkey in the oven. Will fix mashed potatoes and asparagus as sides. Later an apple crisp made with my canned pie filling and some vanilla ice cream fell into the shopping cart this morning. I still trying to find some neighbors to share with.

We made a Costco run today and couldn't resist the rotisserie chicken. So that, pilaf and asparagus are what's for dinner tonight.

Lookin' good and feelin' fine Steve.

I think I will oven braise our corn beef tomorrow, save the cooking juices and cook the veggies on Saturday. I think that should work ok. That way too, Dx can go straight for a reuben if that's what she would rather have, and I think she does.

For dinner tonight it's warmed up sloppy joes on slider buns. At various times we have called them Dollar buns, party rolls, and for some bizarro reason Turkey buns, though a turkey never came near them. Anyway, they is little and I had 3 Sloppies and a handful of grapes.

I made bratwurst last weekend, from ground pork, pork fat and seasonings. We're having some of that for dinner tonight. I'll braise it in sauerkraut, beer, homemade grainy mustard and thyme from the garden, then brown it under the broiler. I'm also making hot German potato salad to go alongside.
