I was housebound most of the day while a fellow worked on the flooring, so I put together a lasagna...will be eating on that a few days, as well as sharing and freezing some.

Cooking steamed mussels with L.O. rice and a wedge of lettuce with blue cheese dressing.
I can hardly wait! Had a chance to go the Fisherman's Shack and get some really fresh mussels (not wild caught cuz I don't think those are available anymore here). Had an Oyster Po' Boy for lunch while there.

Oh happy day!

Sounds yummy to me. I had to Google jaeger sauce. I'm out of parsley and mushrooms, so I'll think of something else. Stirling isn't big on 'shrooms anyways. Maybe a pan gravy with some shallots. Hmm...

Mild Italian Sausages, creamed corn and mashed potatoes.

Ironically, this was a family favourite for both TB and I, even though we have totally different cultural backgrounds. It was a comfort meal for all of us when Dad was living here. It is usually any kind of sausage, but we like the mild Italian.

Since we are both trying to get over colds I thought it would be good and we both enjoyed it.

I won't be freezing the frikadelle forcemeat again. They tasted good, but they tended to have bits fall off and stick to the pan more than usual. I boiled the potatoes in the pot I should have used for the beets, so I had to use a smaller pot and boil them, since they wouldn't fit with the steamer basket. They are better steamed, but they were still pretty good. I made a pan gravy. It was quite good, but had a few burnt bits from the bits that fell off the frikadeller. I didn't quite get them all out of the pan. I sauteed some shallots in butter in the pan and added vegi stock and beef stock and whipping cream. I didn't have the patience to simmer it 'til it got thick, so I pulled some roux out of the fridge and added a bit. The gravy was hardly noticeable with the frikadeller, but it was quite tasty with the taters.

While I was eating the beets, I tried to see if I could detect the "dirt" flavour that some people find unpleasant. I couldn't detect it at all. I wonder if those people like cilantro and can't taste the "soap" flavour.

I'm taking a writing class on Wednesdays, so my Wednesday dinner with friends has moved to Thursdays. Tonight I had chicken and cheese quesadillas and my favorite pink wine, along with some great conversation with good friends. I've missed that.

I love the flavor of beets. Hot with butter, cold plain, just so long as they aren't dolled up as pickles or thickly coated like Harvard beets. Even with trying to find a "dirt" flavor I don't think I would be able to. However, cilantro and I are not friends yet. I've tried to acquire a taste for it but all I end up doing is tossing on parsley. I always told my Mom if something has to have you acquire a taste for it it can't taste all that good to begin with.

I love beets all ways, even harvard and am also a fan of cilantro. But then again I seem to like a lot of the "hard to love" tastes ... except liver.
