TGIFriday 4/22/11, What's Cooking?

I got an early start on the beef steak stew. I used my kitchen shears to cut up the smaller sections around the middle chunk, and kept that back for a small 1" thick steak, I took the steak I taste tested last night, and trimmed and cut up the excess too, so I have two whole steaks left and 2 trimmed ones.

I tossed the cut pieces in flour, but stopped there as I didn't want to set off the smoke alarm and wake up my neighbors before 6am.

I've got baby carrots, onion, garlic, chopped celery. I think I'll add some wild rice mix at the end.

What's cooking in your kitchen today, or are you having take out or go out for Friday?

I was thinking of repeating the tacos from the other night. Just to use up the meat. And of course, because I love tacos, lol.

I am still on a soft/liquid food diet so will probably have more of my butternut squash soup. As for DH and Dad, I am not sure yet what I will feed them. The original plan was a nice cross rib roast with roasted veggies and gravy, but Dad's swallowing isn't good, I can't eat it and DH said not to bother just for him so that is for another day.

I am planning a cold plate lunch though with fresh potato salad (which I will mash up for myself), deviled eggs, some wonderful deli meat I picked up yesterday and cucumbers and grape tomatoes!

SO is dropping her car off for service tonight and I'm the chauffeur. As a result, we're having leftovers tonight. More of the flank steak and sesame noodles along with some veggie or other.

I'm going with cod for a change, oven baked with grated potato, a few smashed garlic cloves and a generous amount of good quality extra virgin olive oil. Goes well with blanched broccolis sautéed with also olive oil and finely chopped garlic. Will attach a picture once it's ready. Cheers

I like to use up taco meat in chili. Add a can of tomato sauce, some chili powder and make some rice.

or: Taco rice, taco meat, as is and leftover wild rice blend.

or: Tamale pie with cornbread topping.

and sometimes I just want more tacos.

No fair you two, Now you have me craving tacos and I can't chew them with my sinus/throat infection. Maybe I can find a way to make cream of taco soup!
