OFFICIAL Dinner Thread Monday the 3rd (12/3/18)

I found 7 different "days" for this date. I'll go with "Let's Hug Day"

I'm making a dish I originally found in an old church cookbook many years ago. It's made with cube steak seared in a skillet and topped with a sauce made with mushrooms, onions, sour cream and V-8 juice (originally tomato juice). I'll serve it over egg noodles along with steamed green beans.

What are your plans for dinner?

Cheese on toast with bacon and slice of onion and tomato. Grilled. The cheese I used was tasteless.

Sounds good, Andy. There are a lot of great recipes in those little church ladies cookbooks. I have several that were my grandmother's, and you've inspired me to get them out and browse through them again.

This evening's dinner will be roasted shrimp with lemon/garlic butter, and steamed broccoli.

Can you post the recipe? I like cube steaks but others not so much. This sounds like they would like it.

"Let's Hug Day" sounds like a great holiday to me!!


I defrosted the "ham bone" we bought from Honey Baked Ham store and discovered it has around 6 cups of delicious ham on it! The bone will be used for soup tomorrow, but I'll use about 2 cups of diced ham to make an easy "blast from the past" dinner tonight.

My family used to love this, and I know my SC will too.


1 family size box of Kraft Mac & Cheese (made per directions)
Mix in:
1 can of fire roasted tomatoes
2 cups of chopped ham
Put in a buttered casserole with buttered Panko crumbs on top. Bake at 375 till topping is browned and dish is hot.


Easy peasy...

I was going to make an omelette for supper. But, I'm having a visual migraine and can't see straight, so DH ordered Thai food for us.
