Snip, I really have to give that polenta thing of yours a try. The picture convinced me.


We are making homemade Pizza tonight........peperoni, bell pepper, thin sliced white onion, mushrooms and 5 kinds of grated Italian cheeses.

Pan-fried Boneless Pork loin chops, pan gravy, Rice Pilaf (chopped onion and mushroom sautéed in butter, ground dry porcini mushrooms and beef stock) and steamed broccoli crowns.





I used equal portions of two varieties of Lundberg rice in the pilaf:


Countrywild:

Blend of Wehani, long grain brown rice and Black Japonica.


Wild Blend:

Blend of long grain brown rice, sweet brown rice, Wehani, Black Japonica and wild rice.

Tonight we had chicken meatballs with potato salad, bush grillin beans and okra. The chicken meatballs were DIFFERENT!

And you say I'm indecisive? Looks like you have the same problem

Hey, what could I do? My dinner plans were still frozen solid?
Chicken is one item that I only thaw in the fridge, at it's own pace

I do the same with chicken and pork! Just a tip if you want it to defrost faster put it in a bowl of cold water in the fridge :)

Thanks Kayelle :) I made it with curried ground beef on the picture. You can also make it with the Bacon and Mushroom mix (like in my signature dish), tomato,onion and chili sauce or even creamed spinach and cheese!

P.S Your pizza sounds devine!
