Sunday December 11th. What's cooking?

I was describing my tamale meatloaf in the meatloaf thread, and decided I had everything.

Man that tamale meatloaf sounded so good, I mixed up a batch with the creamed corn and bacon cornbread, and the stewed tomatoes were "chili ready" (Walmart), so I had to leave the juices.

I like to start with the tomatoes and mix the taco seasonings in so you don't get clumps in the meat. Since I wanted to keep the tomato liquid this time, I diced up the cornbread and put them in next. They soaked up the chili juices nicely. I put it in my loaf pan and put it in the fridge to marinate all day and will cook it for dinner tonight.

What are you cooking ?

We had friends with the two young kids for an early lunch. I made mac/cheese, sliders, hot dogs, sausage rolls, french fries.Not a proper veg in site.
Pud was cornflake tart and birds custard.

I'm going to grill a couple hot venison sausages. I'll split one and serve it between two slices of Italian bread "po-boy" style and the other one I'll either slice and eat with crackers and cheese, or eat it as is with a little ketchup. Tangy cole slaw on the side.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

Lamb chops are reclining in a nice teriyaki bath and will be warmed to perfection in a hot grill pan later. Sides will be couscous prepared with chicken broth and some chopped green onions, then baked sweet potatoes, the last of the cornmeal yeast rolls and dessert.....big question mark. I'd better get on the stick and make something.

There's nothing under the dessert dome on the kitchen counter. It'll be a slim week dessert-wise if it remains empty. Right now I'm kinda thinkin' pie of some sort. There are plenty of frozen black berries in the freezer and a frozen pie crust that needs to be used. I need the freezer space. Yep, blackberry pie. Ain't rationalization a beautiful thing?!
