Monday Jan 9th - What's For Dinner?

Our daughter heads back to school tomorrow, so she requested her favorite dinner for tonight: Salisbury Steak.

Yes, I know it's a hackneyed old 1960's dish, but I made it for her once a long time ago and she now requests it on birthdays and other "special occasions".

The way I make it is a far cry from the old TV dinner staple. I start with a good quality ribeye and some boneless short ribs. Then I chop up the meat in the food processor, add worcestershire, eggs, bread crumbs, garlic, mushrooms, and onions. The steaks are simmered in beef mushroom gravy and served over toast - with grated Swiss cheese on top.

I get hungry just talking about it!

Making use of what we've got in as our current money situation isn't great.
I'm cooking Quorn chicken style pieces (my Quorn addiction continues!) with onions and mushrooms, in a smoked paprika sauce. Serving a salad for me, and mum and her hubby want chips.
So basically making a meal out of a handful of ingredients. Quorn, onions, mushrooms, smoked paprika, tomato puree, and stock. Cheap, filling and really tasty :)

I got some boneless lamb leg at a really good price yesterday and cubed it up for a couple of meals. One will be tonight's lamb and okra stew with tomato. I serve this with rice.

I wish I could find lamb for a good price here. I thought it might go down in price after Christmas, but no, it still seems to be right around $12-14 a pound. The small roasts I looked at today in the store were around $40 on average. Yikes.

I might have to wait until spring, when I can get it direct from the farm for about $4 a pound.

Beef over rice. It's a dish I used to eat at my grandparents when I visited. I don't make it quite as good as my gram did, but I like it.

I've got some cucumbers left over from last night's dinner, so tonight I'll have them with some Kogi BBQ pulled pork in soft tacos.

That picture is soooooooo pretty Andy! Would you share the recipe please?

I have another whole chicken in the fridge that should be cooked today and it doesn't inspire me.

I have 2 dinner plans at the moment and haven't really decided which yet. I have gone back and forth twice so far. So now I will wait till everyone is home at the same time and get a vote and then there will still be someone unhappy.
