Dinner Wednesday 3/25/15?

Got a hankering for Paula Deen's BBQ meatloaf...will serve it with loaded mashed potatoes and green beans.

What sounds good at your house?

We're having Fettucine Alfredo and pan seared chicken breast.

Extremely early dinner (or a very late lunch) tonight. Mrs. K had a leftover pork chop, while I had every kid's worst nightmare... smothered liver, onions, and mushrooms, with a side of spinach. It was fantastic.

Well, after being without Internet service for nearly 9 days, it's nice to be back "home" here at DC.

Beautiful day here and my sweetheart requested hamburgers for tonight's meal. I made some buns this afternoon and some potatoes are frying in a skillet to go along with. The hamburgers will be rounded out with homemade green tomato pickles, homemade pickled okra, the fried potatoes, a couple of beers and coconut chewies bars for dessert.

Katie, we had hamburgers too! With macaroni salad. Store bought buns though. I've never been able to make a decent loaf of bread. Sliced tomatoes and sauteed mushrooms to go on the burgers.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

I retried a recipe (adjusted) marinade for chicken pieces - with chinese 5 spice, lime juice, soy (halve quantity this time), sweet chilli sauce. Was OK but bit too liquidy, i.e. not thick enough to stay on the chicken pieces. Another recipe bites the dust! (Oh, had it with home made oven chips and string beans)

Had Chicken Korma over brown rice with sauteed spinach on the side. Princess Fiona had recommended Patak Simmering Sauces and I found it at my local Publix grocery store. Good and easy -- just added the chicken and liked it very much.
No matter how simple it seems, it's complicated.

I made baked rigatoni with spiffed up jarred sauce, Italian sausage and a layer of mozz on top. Alongside a green salad. I saved back a couple mushrooms from the sauce and sliced them for the salad and traded some of the salad green pepper diced into the sauce. Fair is fair. Olives to roll around on the plate, they didn't want to stay put on the salad, and I said, hey you guys, stop playing with the food on your plate.
