TGIFriday 2/25/11 What's cooking, or not?

Today was inspection which is done, so now I can finish putting away the turkey, and get the carcass cooking.

I'm leaving the bones in for the thighs, drumsticks and wings. I should have enough for this stock and one later on with those bones.

I made the mini Mushroom Quiche exactly like LPBeier's recipe, but put the ingredients in layers in the muffin tin.

Great size for freezing, so I froze them in the pan and will pop them into a gallon zip bag. Big lumpy bags can get stuffed in odd places in the freezer. I'll also cut up the half loaf of French bread, split open and sandwich size. I need me some version of Cuban sandwiches

I think I'll strip the turkey neck and make a sandwich from that for lunch.

Dinner? I'm thinking of trying RockLobster's Tortilla Pizza inspiration.

Layer a tortilla with
spaghetti sauce,
browned ground sausage meat with
onions,
grated cj cheese,
a lightly chopped mini Mushroom Gratin

Hmm. Sounds pretty good. I love the idea of using tortillas for personal pizzas. I've gotta try it.

What are you cooking today? Or, are you eating out, take home, or delivery?

I'm making a dish with chicken, Kalamata olives, pepperoncini, onions in a sauce made with wine and pickle juice. This goes over rice.

Last night I noticed the store had chuck roasts on sale so I picked up a couple and ground them today. Will have spaghetti with meat sauce for dinner. The rest of the ground chuck is portioned and in the freezer.

Z, I make tortilla pizzas now and then. I always make them a double later with cheese inbetween the tortilla shells. It makes them easier to pick up and hold the slices plus the obvious... it gives you an extra layer of cheese

I'm thinking of grilling a steak along with some smashed redskins.

No clue yet. Lot of leftovers in the fridge, but I'm not in the mood for chicken or pork.

Date night has been moved to tomorrow (Unless we want to be surrounded by a herd of 3rd grade boys having a sleepover!), so we will be eating at home tonight. Chili!!! Then Katie H's "Funeral Cake," which I made late last night.

I'm going to try for Shepherd's Pie again tonight. It never got made last night, because something came up and I couldn't get an early enough start on it, so I just fired in a turkey pot pie from the freezer.
I'm going to sneak in some onions in the ground beef tonight. I usually keep them out because my daughter is picky but she will have to pick them out tonight.

This time, I spread out all my goodies then folded them. They were not crisp enough, so I just ate with a knife and fork. Very Yummy. One would definitely been enough.

Next, I'll try it open like you did. I should be able to finish it off in the oven so I won't have to turn it.

I did finish putting away the turkey. The carcass and skin, neck, plus giblet stock are bubbling slowly. A taste of the liquid a couple of hours ago says this is going to be great!

I took the leftover stuffing which was pretty damp and mixed it up together, putting balls of it in the muffin tin and baked it up for putting in a gallon bag of them in the freezer. They popped right out because I didn't press them into the tin.
