Dinner - Thursday 1st February, 2007

Well, if yesterday was the last of February today is a new beginning!

Today I have defrosted some beef mince, and put it in a pan with chopped carrots, onion, fresh tomato, garlic, a bit of pesto (the scrapings of a jar), a little beef stock, a whole shoal of anchovies and cooked the whole lot and now have topped with sliced potato on top of which I am thinking of putting a little cheese and bread crumbs. Goodness knows what it will taste like (think the potato will get to dry, all though the meat is juicy!) but it smells good and I'm running down supplies!

Not a brilliant transition into DH's pudding, which I think will be pineapple fritters, with some Vin Santo icecream I want to get out of the freezer.

Edited to add: supper was actually delicious, despite my misgivings, and, as part of my plan to use turkey more often I'll try it again soon with turkey instead of beef.

We will have Rouladen today, together with Spaetzle and red cabbage ;o)

LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

I'm not sure yet. I'm leaning towards homemade pizza as I've never attempted this before but I might wait till the weekend to do this. If not then I'll probably attempt another dish I've never tried making before as I'm feeling in a creative mood.

I got called in to work tonight so I'll be leaving coq au vin in the oven for my family. (Got to go find that recipe now) I just whipped up some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and I'm contemplating taking an orange cornmeal pound cake to work for a coworkers last night. Whoo! Look at me go! I had a good sleep last night!

Panko-breaded talapia, corn casserole and green salad. Should be something like soup or stew since it really looks like winter here today.

....and here I thought that I started the thread for yesterday all wrong

DH took me to dinner last night instead of coming home and cooking, ok by me.

Recipes : Dad's Meatloaf with Tomato Relish : Food Network
I think I may attempt this for tonight. If not, Sizzlin's goulash will be on the table. I have those ingreds but not for the meatloaf, feeling under the weather may dictate which one I do, go shopping or stay warm inside.
Ond of thesd days, I really must tackle the fear of meatloaf.
