Sometimes pan juices sopped up are even better than the meal itself, GG! I always make sure we have good bread on hand whenever I make something-and-collard-greens. Have to get every last drop of that pot likker.



Steamed broccoli for a veggie instead of making salad. Ended up putting the shrimp on Parmesan grits. Or Parmesan polenta. Your choice. At home there is no real difference; in a restaurant, the difference is about $12 to $15.

Well, she came up with Salisbury steaks done in ramekins with gravy, mushrooms and some caramelized onions. Then put a slice of Swiss cheese on top and baked them. Killer!!

That looks deeeelectable CG!

I finally got inspired with the lb of hamburger. Browned two big thick patties till half done, and transferred each to a little individual oval casseroles. Love those things.
Then I sauteed some sliced mushrooms in the fat, de glazed with a little red wine, added some deep caramelized onions (previously frozen) and some broth made with a combo of BTB mushroom and beef. Simmered it down to 1/2, and poured it over the beef patties. Topped the casseroles with sliced Swiss cheese triangles and finished in the toaster oven. SC had garlic bread with his and we shared some steamed broccoli. It was really good!

Wonderful sounding dinners everyone.

Joey, GG, and CG....love your pics! My tuna melt and fruit salad wasn't pic worthy, but it was good.

I think you were a very good girl! Steak is a great source of easily digestible protein, as well as iron! Way to go!

Quesadillas. I went vegetarian with corn nibs, cooked in oil and flavored with S&P and oregano, and fontina cheese. Craig cooked himself up some filling with leftover cuban pork roast, poblano chilis, onions and there was something red in there, and made his with muenster cheese, and he had 1 of my corn quesadillas.
