Thursday's Dinner Table 10/7

Good morning everyone,

PrincessFiona - Enjoy your honeymoon!

Kids are off to school and so begins the day. After I run a few errands, I have to get home to catch up on the never ending pile of paperwork.

Tonight's dinner will be a Greek version of arroz con pollo ... a whole chicken cut-up and baked in the oven with rice, lemon zest and juice, dill, diced tomatoes and feta cheese . You gotta love those one-pot meals

Enjoy the day

For lunch I'm having last night's leftovers. Which consists of chickpea salad and then saute'ed broccoli, red and green peppers, mushrooms and onions with brown rice. Delicious.

Tonight we're probably going to our local diner. They do a great bacon and cheddar omelette and instead of homefries I substitute broccoli. I loves me my broccoli!

Pork loin is on sale $1.99 lb this week. I will cut the loin in 1/2. Half for a roast goes in the freezer. The other ½ will be either cut into chops and pan fried or cutlets which will be pounded thin, breaded & fried for dinner tonight. TBDL
So the dinner plan will probably be: Pork loin with gravy served with broccoli rabe sautéed with garlic, EVOO & grapeseed oil, spaetzle with cheese sauce & salad.

I'm really not sure what to have for dinner. I have a few options. Chicken and Couscous with a nice salad, I have some beef I could do a roast with, I have all the stuff to make Sam the Cooking Guys spicy sausage pasta.

Well, after adding chopped celery root, chopped turnips, onions, chopped potatoes, mushrooms and carrots to the Dutch oven I realized that there was now no room for the pot roast. Good thing I have a second Dutch oven

LOL! I can just imagine the scene if you didn't have a second one handy.
