Tuesday, 1/4/11, What's on your plate?

I am hoping to make soup. I have 1 lb bottom round, carrots, celery, split peas, lentils, quinoa, barley, beans, tomatoes and beef stock. Some or all of that will go into the pot.

Any plans?

I'm thinking that I've got half a container of spaghetti sauce in the fridge that needs using, and 3 cups of taco meat mixture. I'll make up a batch of spaghetti and package some for the freezer.

Have some leftover kaiser rolls from a New Year's Day gathering that are on the edge so tonight is burger night! Will be making 1/4 lb patties and topping with turkey bacon and cheese. Maybe BBQ sauce and onion if I can get to the store.

The kid is returning to college today so it will be hubby and me tonight. After cooking all the kid's favorites, I'm not sure what to make tonight. I'll wait and see what moves me when dinner time comes.

Had a request for roast beef melts tonight. So I think I'll do that. I will likely put on a pot of soup too. I'm craving soup. Msmofet's sounds yummy but I think mine will likely be either turkey based or onion soup. Oooo, roast beef melts and french onion soup! Hmmm...that might be a lot of bread and cheese though, better serve a big salad on the side. OK, thats dinner here!

Leftovers here. Half a rack of babybacks from the other week, I'll thicken up some au jus from the other day and make poutine, and maybe I'll pull a couple ABTs out of the freezer, too.

Do ABTs freeze well? Seems whenever I make them there aren't any left over.

GS goes back to school tomorrow so it is his last night with us. I'm making augratin potatoes with ham (heavy on the ham) baby green peas and a green salad. Fruit and cookies for dessert unless someone wants more Christmas cake.

It's just me eating here and even I'd have a hard time gettin' down ten or so ABTs... and live to tell about it

Yeah, they freeze just fine. I thaw before reheating and usually nuke them on a med/high setting to reheat.
