Dinner Thursday, January 21, 2016

I've already got dinner planned, and done. Efficient? Nope. We're having leftovers. There are the ribs and fixin's from Tuesday and yesterday's chicken. The chicken would require me to make new sides, so I'm thinking we'll just nosh on ribs and stuff as we get hungry this evening.

What's cooking (or reheating) in your kitchen?

We get chicken and noodles, green bean casserole, and cherry cheesecake, courtesy of United Way take and bake fundraiser. I'll throw in the leftover chicken chunks with country gravy I made last night. UW's noodles can be a bit bland. Usually their meals last us 3 or 4 days.

My wife asked me to make her favorite chicken and dumpling soup for dinner and I consented. For some people, soup is an accompaniment but a hearty soup can carry the whole load.

I'm hoping the kitchen is closed for vacation. I'm going out to get some Popeye's tonight.

Chicken here too, leftover from yesterday. I'll reheat the last of the mashed potatoes, and either make a salad to go alongside, or steam some carrots. Might throw some peas in with the carrots if I go that route.

Souschef came home loaded down with meat to prepare for the freezer, including Value pac chicky thighs at .77 rather than 1.99! (Von's)That's an unbelievable price. He also got pork shoulder and ground chuck, so that's a lot of packing up to do.
I'm thinking some pork will be cooked today. I'll report later.

I'm going to finish off the last of the taco rice I made earlier and froze.

I've got to clear out some leftovers so I can get busy cooking other things.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

I'm with Kayelle, I'm doing Pork as well.
I have two Pork Loin Chops from Costco that I butterflied and rubbed with a mixture my Chef-y friend from Colorado made for me.
Along side, I plan on making my version of Brussels Sprouts and a HUGE green salad as well... well that's the plan anyways...
