I haven't decided yet. I have some chicken and some hamburger in the fridge. I can make several different dishes. I'll wait a while and see what floats my boat come dinner time.

I had leftover angelhair pasta and mushroom tomato sauce from last night. So I added grated romano and parmesan and fried it in a small amount of EVOO to a nice brown crust flip and repeat. That was brunch.

It seems there's a theme of leftovers among some of us. I have some of the meat mixture I used to stuff cabbage leaves with for an eastern European dinner party a few weeks ago (it was frozen). I'm going to make meatballs. Husband always likes them because they look cute (because of the raw rice as the starch binder, they turn into little porcupines). Haven't quite settled on the sauce (they need to be cooked at least partially in liquid to reconstitute the rice). Broth, tomato, gravy, cream? The main side will be grilled zuchini and eggplant on the griddler. We're debating on whether or not we need a starch (a fair amount of rice in the meatballs, husband doesn't need a lot of carbs for supper tonight)

I made Porcupines with taco meat mixture and wild rice blend. It was great served with warm salsa.

Re the leftover theme, we get such good ideas here that we have great leftovers. Since I've been living alone, I fill up the freezer then have plenty of dinners to choose from. It's hard when I've shopped and stocked and have new dishes to try, but the freezer is pretty full.

I took out two containers, one with the beef stew I made from rib eye steak (very tender), and a container of mixed lima beans/split pea soup made with smoked turkey neck bones.

That will make room for the Portabella mushroom gravy using PF's recipe.

Light finger supper

We decided on a light supper as we needed the energy to shout for our home team who were playing rugby and desperately needed to win!

We had smoked springbuck carpaccio on fresh home grown garden rocket, baby rosa tomatoes, black and green olives, and two cheeses. We also had matzos! Yummy!
