Thursday, 9/29 What's Cooking?

I'm making a meatloaf with hamburger and ground sausage, using some leftover sausage cornbread casserole for the bread filler.

I like to make my meatloaf up early in the day so it can rest in the fridge until evening. This works especially well for dishes that "taste better the next day."

I've also got some shrimp marinating in garlic butter with dill. I'll maybe have some of that for lunch or save until tomorrow's dinner.

What are you cooking today?

I got the laundry done already, and the weather is so cool and gorgeous that
I’m going to start a pot of beans.

I have a smoked pork hock, and all my new sausages to add at the end.

Ĺ # Pinto Beans
1 smoked pork ham hock


I’ll make this one with plain water. I want the flavors of the other smoked sausages to stand out.

I’ve got Andouille, Bratwurst, Alligator, Bar-S Smoked links, I even have ground hot sausage and ground regular sausage, but I think that would be overkill with the ham hock too!

I’ve already cooked up the link sausages, so all I have to do is slice each one and add them at the very last minute, just long enough to warm them up.

If there are leftovers, they will be awesome after sitting in the fridge all night.

Is this in place of the meatloaf, or is this food for another time?
You're really going to town if you are cooking everything you've mentioned

Mine is pretty basic.

I slice a couple of eggplants and bread them, drizzle them with a little olive oil and bake them for about 25 minutes in a hot oven. Then I layer them in a pan with some marinara sauce, a snowy sprinkle of grated cheese and bake them at 350 until they are bubbly.

If it is a holiday or if I am having company then I put some mozzarella and some crumbled hot sausage in the casserole.

The eggplants are really nice in the farmers market right now!

It's clear the fridge night! Leftover pizza, cheesy burger mac, chicken sandwiches, chicken tacos. Pull it all out of the fridge and everyone make their own!

i just finished making thursday gravy (well, it's not sunday), but the earliest it'll be ready is 6 or 6:30, so i doubt dw will wait till then, let alone eat pork brasciole and sausage.

i'm sure she'll have something planned when she gets home from the pet food store.
