Monday 7/18 What's Cooking?

Today's dinner will be to use up the rest of the big chicken breast and make gravy from the drippings I saved yesterday.

I'll probably make a chicken soup with a package of drumsticks along with leftover frozen veggies just to have it on hand. I've got some really good stock to start with.

What's cooking in your kitchen today?

I was going to hit the pastrami for lunch and make something different for dinner, but I am getting taken out for lunch, so it will be Rachel's yet again for din-din. And to tell the truth, I don't mind one bit. I've got a jar of kraut and the better part of a loaf of rye to use up, so might as well keep making those sandwiches.

You did mean 7/18 right?

I am making a muffuletta, and pasta salad and cole slaw. Way too hot to think about anything that involves fire......

Working evenings again today. I'd planned to make our big meal at lunch time since everyone but me is off. However...Ken is off to have lunch with a friend and Madeleine is going out to the pool around then. Best laid plans...oh well. They will have to scrounge the freezer for food. I think there are burgers and pizza down there so we'll see what leftovers I find when I get home.

As for me, I am going on strike. I'm not going to cook today at all, and its too hot to bake. My "meal" is going to be a can of ravioli or soup heated up in the microwave. Booooring.

Boerewors bredie ended up being mini meatballs with tomato and bean gravy and rice.
Made the meatballs with the sausage meat from the bredie so at least I used the meat I took out for dinner..lol!
