July 21st 2014 Dinner

Looked around and didn't see a forum for tonight's dinner thread. Does that mean no one is cooking?! Or just haven't come up with what to cook yet.

Tonight for dinner we are having Grilled Hamburgers & Hotdogs with French Fries cooked in my cast iron skillet.

Well I cooked! It was mostly what I call a larder meal, i.e. mostly from larder ingredients. I had a fish stock cube that needed to be used up and had a tin of albacore tuna.... = tuna risotto!

To the risotto rice, I added cut up fresh green beans (that I had), left over chopped spring onions + some chopped fresh tomatoes - along with the fish stock, albacore tuna. It was great! The tomatoes offset what would otherwise be a strong fish stock. All done in under 30 mins.

Jessica, your earlier post about meatballs prompted me to take a container of meatballs and sausages in sauce out of the freezer for dinner tonight.

Tonight I have a civic league board meeting and we have leftovers, so that's what's for dinner: Couscous with grilled veggies and white-wine vinaigrette, penne with no-cook tomato sauce, pan-fried chicken to slice and serve over either, and sliced marinated cucumber for me, cucumber cut into wedges and salted for DH.

Tonight we are having red and orange stuffed peppers. I hollowed out but kept whole one red and one orange pepper. I microwaved them for a few minutes to soften then stuffed them with cooked rice, scallions, dark red kidney beans, cheese, seasoned salt, pepper, Italian herbs and bits of the top that I had cut off.

I added some pasta sauce to a small crockpot and added the peppers and spooned some sauce over them.
Annoying the cook will result in smaller portions

I have left over pork and beans. I'll add some type of sausage and some buns to stretch. Maybe pick up some deli potato salad.

Wraps this afternoon. Avocado, rice, black beans, salsa, and cilantro.

When I made frikadeller the other day, I made enough for a second meal. So, we had frikadeller, boiled potatoes, and a green salad with a blue cheese dressing. Oh, and the last of the rødkål. Washed it down with Carlsberg.

We had salmon gently cooked in browned butter, grilled zucchini, a big bowl of sliced cucumbers and tomatoes from the garden, iced tea and homemade strawberry pie with whipped cream for dessert.
