Sunday Dinner Thread, Oct 9

What's cooking today folks?

My dinner will be my fifth entry in the PPPC. Since my Browns are sitting at home today (bye week), I won't be able to make a food from the opposing team's city, so I decided to make a food Cleveland is known for. Actually, quite a few cities in the midwest are known for this, including Pittsburgh! Go figure
It's Pierogi day! My first time making these. I'll probably start them sometime during the day and finish them up by sautéeing in onion and butter come dinner time. And another food will grace my plate (just in case the pierogi don't come out ) some fried Lake Erie walleye Fish Fry and Pierogi Night, a very popular dish in these parts.

Anyone else have a plan yet?

Your dinner sounds wonderful, Pac.

I received a 1-1/2# can of cook beef in juices. I heated it in a skillet and poured off the juices (and fat) to separate after chilling, and am using the meat to start a big pot of chili. I added a package of taco seasoning, a can of stewed tomatoes and 2 cans of tomato sauce. I'll add chili powder and cumin and heat through, then put into the fridge to rest all day.

I'll make some rice with a handful of frozen mixed veggies to serve it over and a sprinkle of shredded taco cheeses on top.

Have a great time at your Mom's, Saph. Sounds nice.

Happy Thanksgiving to all our Canadian friends! May your turkey be moist and tasty!

Best wishes for your pierogis, Pac! I envy you your walleye. Zhizara, your chili sounds so good!

I have a cute little roast destined for the CP. Am thinking shredded beef something.

Thanks, Z. Thanks, Dawg. I'm looking forward to getting things started soon. I've got a nice SS bowl picked out that will work well as my dough cutter.

I'll bet that canned beef makes an excellent meat for chili, Z.

Happy Thanksgiving all! The pies and cheesecakes are chillin' the turkey is brining and waiting its stuffing, the side dishes are yet to be created, but they will happen soon. All is in readiness and we are all enjoying the togetherness this weekend brings. I'm thankful for such a wonderful supportive husband and family, and for good friends who share my life. You all fall into both categories, friends and family alike. Thanks for bringing bits of your wisdom and world to my life.

pacanis, be lazy like me and just cut your pierogi dough in squares, then fold them into triangles. Less dough waste, and the pointy bits are the tastiest part!

No way baby. They are going to be half moons and they are going to be gorgeous.



Good tip though.

In keeping with the "let's deplete the food stores before going away" for a couple of weeks, some leftover linguini with tomato cream sauce, a couple of Italian sausage, and a salad with the last of the lettuce.

We are having SharonT's Pork Tenderloin with Marsala Cream Sauce, along with her Spinach Orzo. Will need something else, but haven't decided what as yet. Too beautiful a day to do much thinking.

Chicken chow mein, pork egg rolls with some type of dipping sauce, and a Stella Artois
