Thursday Jan 12th

No one is cooking today? I have a huge pot of wild rice on the go (and some maple bacon waiting--that's thanks to FrankZ...no Kathleen). Not sure what I'm going to do with it. I might just break up the bacon and top the rice with butter. I might add green beans or broccoli. I might make a bechamel...but I kind of just like wild rice with S&P and butter.

I'm thinking burgers here. It's just me and the yungun tonight and that will be quick and easy.

Well, hardly cooking today. Have some black eyed peas been going all day in chicken stock and will saute some diced cotto and diced onion celery and add some roasted sweet peppers. Should be a five minute special.

I was rummaging through the freezer looking for something for dinner and came across a package of filets mignon. Sounded like a good idea so that's what's for dinner. I 'll make some cheese mashed potatoes and SO always wants peas with mashed.

i made a spinach,lemon,almond pesto this a.m. going to have on a piece of fish. not sure yet about the other sides. probable a couple of mild green veggies. don't want to over power the fish. or maybe just corn. and let the spinach be a veggie serving.
