Menu for today, Wed. 12/22/10

Wow, I guess I get to start this today. It's pouring down rain again today, but hubby and I are going to brave the streets and go to the movies. We are going to see "True Gritt". Hope I don't miss John Wayne too much.
Dinner will be cooked by my husband for my birthday dinner.......have no idea what he has planned, but I'll report later.
What's cooking at your house today?

I'm trying to decide between pork chops in mushroom herb sauce, boiled 'taters, salad, and rødkål or a pork roulade, roast 'taters, salad, and rødkål.

Does anyone have any good suggestions for a stuffing for a pork roulade? I want to try something new. I have done it stuffed with dried apricots and prunes.

Roasted Pork Loin (chopped mushrooms & onions sautéed in EVOO till soft, frozen chopped spinach thawed & squeezed dry added to pan, seasoned with sea salt, ground peppercorns & thyme. Butterflied pork loin spread with the spinach mixture, rolled & tied seared in pan then roasted) served with rosemary roasted Red & Yukon potatoes & onions, buttered steamed Brussels sprouts & pork gravy.





You can also add shredded cheese and herbs of your choice to the stuffing.

How about stuff it with ... Oh dear I can't spell it like you do, so please forgive me in advance dear TaxLady.

What I was thinking is that the cabbage mixture, perhaps with a few apricots and prunes would make a wonderful stuffing. You could also decorate the outside with bacon.


Then it would be ... well, you know.

A very tasty dish you could call ... um ... er ....

I'm going to try my hand at some scalloped potatoes and ham. I have so much ham leftover from the ham on Sunday. Green beans on the side.

Haven't a clue. Going to the grocery store for baking supplies and Christmas goodies so maybe I'll get a spark of inspiration.

That does sound good, but we had it with prunes and apricots Saturday, so I want something really different. I will try with the rødkål at some point. BTW, just copy and paste to spell it the same Or, if you wrote "roadkill", I would know what you meant.
