Thurs. 1-27 Menu at Your Place?

I'm thinking meatball subs tonight. Maybe alfredo noodles and salad.

I think it will be chicken - either ala king or sesame (family wants this again) with rice, sting beans and maybe tomatoes on the side in some fashion.

Any plans?

I just got back from shopping and I picked up a couple of Banquet Beef Pot Pies.

I'm going to take them out of the cardboard "pans" and try cooking them so that I can get the crusts to brown. I like them for a cheap treat (I love the gravy flavor), but it's hard to get the crusts, top AND bottom brown without those old aluminum pans.

Any ideas would be welcome.

Spaghetti Carbonara tonight. I've been hungry for it for a while. We'll be having a big green salad and garlic toast too.

Z, check out the package directions on those pot pies. The last time I bought them, (don't remember the brand) the "paper" pans were lined with something that made the crusts brown and beautiful. Soooooo unlike the tin pans they used to come in, when they were still on the verge of soggy.

I always used to flip them upsidedown onto a plate and kind of mash the whole thing together. Mix the soft dough into the ingredients. Back them they were 3 for a buck.

Try cooking those pies on top of your pizza stone if you have one.
