It's Friday, 12/5/14....Dinner Thread

I will be making a homemade pizza; bread machine crust, store bought cheeses, an assortment of meats and onions and green peppers.

What will you be eating?

ohhh, pizza sounds good! We went to the German Deli yesterday and got some of their good Bratwurst sausages so I'll be cooking them with cabbage, red bell pepper and potato chunks.

So is out until later this evening so I checked out the deep freeze to find a meal of something for tonight.

After the pork chop thread I decided on, wait for it...

Pork chops! We're out of kraut, which I didn't realize till after I'd browned the chops, but we'll be fine. Cut up an onion and smashed some garlic, threw in some water with a packet of Lipton Onion soup mix and a bit of McCormick's Country Gravy mix. A handful of dried mushrooms. So far pretty tasty! We'll have it over mashed potatoes and I might need to find a veg.

Yeah, well, DH ended up taking most of the day off work so we ran some much needed chores. We actually had the last of the meatloaf, some mashed potatoes and peas.

I finally made Kayelle's Egg Foo Young dish tonight. It was DEE-licious! That, and some broccolini, were just the ticket.

I'm sooo glad you liked the recipe Steve! Did you find a sub for the cornstarch in the sauce? What a perfectly beautiful picture.

We had smothered pork shoulder chops over egg noodles with leftover yeast rolls. Yum

Thanks, K. What I ended up doing was making a reduction out of the sauce, and then adding about a half teaspoon of the cornstarch to finish it. It was really good.
