SKINNER! What's for Dinner? 20 February 2012

Title: In honor of The Simpsons' 500th episode airing last night.


I just put the crock pot together. Sausage (my kielbasa I made on the weekend) and sauerkraut (from the crock in the basement).

Had a taste of the kraut as I took it out of the crock. Wow that has some tang to it, but the cabbage still has a bit of crunch. Much better than that bagged stuff in the store (and I really like that bagged stuff in the store).

I can't wait to have a go at the sausage. I did pan fry a bit of the meat Saturday evening and it was good, so this should be a special meal. Kathleen arrives home today and I wanted something kinda special for that.

Aye carumba, what do you have planned for dinner?

Frank, I just read your tagline "First you start with a pound of bologna" and had to smile! People always rave over my "ham salad" and it has no ham in it! I only use German bologna! I usually buy a 5 lb. chunk and make a large batch and freeze it. When my freezer broke last year, I lost it all. Now I'm thinking I need to make another batch soon! As for my dinner plans, I have none at the moment. DH and I both have commitments tonight so we will probably just do something simple. I'll raid the freezer and figure it out. I'm saving the pork chops from yesterday for tomorrow.

Maybe I shouldn't be admitting this, but..... 500 episodes and I've never seen one of them. And have no idea what the reference is.

Anyway, pizza tonight and a tossed salad.

SO is off today and we're going out for lunch. I think we'll do Thai. That might lead to a lighter, pick up meal for dinner. Maybe a chicken sandwich...

I think it is going to be a pasta with pancetta, rapini, tomatoes, peppers, roasted garlic, and a side of baked shrimp....

DD and grand babies arriving today! DD has requested Taco Salad. DGD #1 eats like the proverbial bird, but seems to like salad these days, never thought a two year old would be a salad eater. #2 (11 weeks) packs her own meals with her (they even drive the car, now that's what I call "smart food")!!! ;-). Dessert may be ice cream, the two year old likes "cream" and could use the calories. Unlike her Nana!

I just broil about 5 of them up in a bit of butter, wine, garlic, with bread crumbs on top. Almost like a starter, but I eat my starter and my main together....
