Sunday - Valentine's Eve - What's for dinner?

What?! No one eating dinner today? We are.

Tonight's fare includes short ribs of beef slowly cooked in red wine-tomato sauce with garlic and onions, hash brown casserole, Italian green beans, iced tea, and blackberry pie a la mode.

What is on the table at your house?

It has gotten "cold" here with a miserable 74F as a high! So we are having chili.

We had Subway Club sandwiches for lunch. Yum!

I will be making something a little different tonight for supper, something I have never made. First off, I had started ground beef browning yesterday for lasagna, but my friend decided she didn't want it after all, so after I browned it I refrigerated it. I was going to make tamale pie tonight, but I decided to make something special for James. I'm not going to do anything special with the ground beef--I will heat it up with some BBQ sauce.

A few weeks ago I bought a Star Trek cookbook. James was intrigued by the recipe for Welsh Rarebit (his mother was Welsh). So for his Valentine's Day eve meal I will make him some Star Trek Welsh Rarebit. I bought some good crusty loaves of bread to go with it. I'm not sure what vegetable yet. He loves Brussels sprouts, so maybe we will have that.

Shhhh! Don't tell him what I'm making--it's a secret!

I would like to do something special for dessert, but I'm not sure what yet. I had planned on making the "Funeral" cake you had mentioned Katie, but I hate to make something so big when he will be leaving for the week either tonight or in the morning. Dessert may end up just being either strawberry or peach yogurt. I'll probably make the cake Friday for his homecoming.

I am making Golabki (aka stuffed cabbage rolls). Steamed cauliflower will be the veg but I'm not sure what I am going to sever with it. I have some Pierogi in the freezer or I may make mashed potatoes.

OH PLEASE!!! I am excited to grill out ribeye steaks tonight! Right now it is 65F! That is 70 degrees warmer than our highs the last two weeks! We had chili when the high was 5 degrees below zero! I'm not sure on the sides yet.
No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best!

I'm making some green beans with salt pork and new potatoes. Roasting a (real this time) pork roast. Think I am going to dry rub w/ low sodium Old Bay and brown in garlic/olive oil before roasting. Warm some bread on the side. We will have chocolate covered strawberries for dessert.
