Thursday 4/21/11 What's Cooking?

Shopping this morning. I got a nice big bone-in pork loin roast, but when looking for a beef roast too, the price was absurd - $5/# so I found what was labeled rib eye steaks for $3/# in a family pack, so I could cut some up for a beef stew (which is what I wanted the roast for). I'll have to decide which to have: beef stew, rib eye steak or pork roast. I also got some smoked pork neck bones so beans are in the running too.

What are you cooking today?

I'm not sure what I will be making, but I am pretty sure it will involve boneless, skinless chicken breast.

I just got a look at those rib eye steaks. 4 of 'em, $2.10 apiece. They are a good inch thick and look like that USA steak in MollyAnne's picture. Well, pretty darn close.

I'll cook up one to try tonight. If it's too tough, I'll save the rest of it for stew tomorrow, plus it will already be browned.

The roast is in the oven with oregano all over, in the roasting pan on a rack, over water, oregano, S&P and a good couple of glugs of Liquid Smoke. I had let it sit out, but it was still pretty cold in the middle. After 1 hour at 350, I put in the meat thermometer and it didn't even register among the numbers, so I've put it back in for another hour.

If the steak turns out edible as steak, I'll have it with a slice of really meaty bacon, with extra blue cheese dressing to dunk it in.

My problem is going to be venting the smoke so that the smoke alarm doesn't go off.

Meatloaf and mashed.

I laughed when I read about the beef. I have the same ssue. The stew meat is $4.99/pound and reduced price strip steaks are $2.99/pound. Those steaks make tasty stew!

It is Thursday right? If not I'm in a heap of trouble at work
Somebody needs to fix that title I thought y'all were still talking about last night's dinner.

I'm going to grill a steak tonight. I picked up some cilantro and will probably make some pico, but undecided if it's going on top of the steak or not. I'll grill a couple spuds and some garlic bread, too.

I'm thinking I'll do BBQ chicken and rice dish. Mixed veggies for the side.

Hubby has left for a role playing game.

I just finished writing my grocery list. Most stores here are open tomorrow, but close Easter Monday. But, we are really low on a lot of stuff and I'm finally feeling well enough to drive.

I'll be shopping at Costco, so it's rotisserie chicken for me.
