TGIF 2/11/11 What's Cooking

No thread yet today? Amazing!

I've got tons of food, but can't seem to find that one thing I'd like to make for dinner.

I was hoping to get ideas from today's thread, but it hadn't been started yet.

What is everyone doing for dinner?

We decided to KISS it tonight, so it's BLTs and store bought potato salad.

Making sloppy Rubens. The corned beef has been in the crock pot. I just finished shredding it and put it back in. Will add the sauerkraut when DH gets home. Have some German potato salad that will be warmed up and served with it.

Kathleen got her new pressure cooker/canner yesterday so I thought I would try it out...

Looked though the book that came with it (yeah, I looked in a DT cookbook) and decided I liked the look of the Coq au Vin recipe.

We both enjoyed it, even if I didn't add quite enough salt and left the burner up a tad too long.

8 minutes to cook*.. wow....













*the prep time was close to 45 minutes, but once you launch this thing it was quick.

I made up a casserole for tonight, and it's safely waiting in the fridge till dinner time. Who knows yet if it's any good, but this is what I did on the fly..

Asparagus was on sale for 99 cents a lb!! I bought a Costco roasted chicken yesterday.

Snapped the ends off of a pound of asparagus, cut it in half, and put on the bottom of a small casserole. Boiled up some orzo pasta to half done, and added that. Then I boned half the chicken, sliced and added that. I made a med. thick white sauce (butter, flour, milk), added some Sherry, brown mustard, mayo and curry powder, and spread it over the whole thing. Topped it with sliced almonds and sprinkled with paprika. How does that sound?

Report to follow after dinner.
