You is tempting fate my friend, Mine not yours. You already have your mind set. I have burger thawing. Luckily I am actually out of peanut butter. Whoever runs out of peanut butter anyway !?!

I am making a semi south of the border pasta casserole with some leftover chili with beans, spices adjusted by adding some extra cumino and ?, corn, and a can of Rotel if it needs further jazzing up. Mix and stir in some penne or rigatoni pasta. Top with cheese and bake. Leftovers guaranteed to begat more leftovers.

Rotel. That stuff is so handy.
I often top my tacos with Rotel because I always have a couple cans in the pantry, but don't always have fresh tomatoes.

Get well soon
Thanks for the kind wishes Rock, and everyone else. I didn't mean to hijack the dinner thread with my pity party.

My wife is actually excited about the prospect of doing more cooking while I'm recouping. She was even looking through cookbooks this morning.

Holy crap Steve! OUCH! Here's another hope that surgery isn't required and the break heals fast and cleanly. Take your calcium and vitamin D!

Dinner here is chicken creole. Saw the recipe in the paper this morning and I'm going to try it. My only worry is that I only have red pepper and no green pepper for the holy trinity. Sacrilege? Oh wait a second...its Ash Wednesday isn't it?

Um...dinner here will be water or some other liquid. Rats. Probably a better idea for me after last night anyway.

I hope your leg mends quickly Steve, and that it doesn't give you a lot of pain.

We will be having taco salads (no shells) for supper tonight.

Thanks Pac!

The bread is so crunchy, lovely with all that oil and grilled up, could have some more right now

The pasta is really nice too as it has cream and parmesan cheese, sundried tomato pesto etc, nice and creamy, lovely taste

Comfort food, southern style tonight...at least most of the meal. Fried chicken with cream gravy, mashed taters, buttered green veggies, bread and butter, iced tea. King cake for dessert.
