Wed. Aug 19th anyone eating?

I've got a meatloaf in the oven and will make some macaroni and cheese and salads to go with it. What's cooking at your place?


I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Wild caught salmon, southwestern style, in the oven and tomato, mozz cheese, avocado, o&v, s&p salad in the frig.

I was just going to start this thread.

Probably some of the tomato soup from yesterday and a salad.

Pasta! tomato sauce with meatballs and sausages over spaghetti.

I'm doing partly fried thighs, and finishing in the convection roast oven over mounds of the last of the Thanksgiving frozen dressing. My good ole green standby dish will be steamed and buttered broccolini. This is a picture of the last time I did it.

I made a rich beef based sauce to go with pasta. I cubed up cooked beef silverside and simmered it further (to soften it) in beef stock, chillies, tomato puree, leeks and courgettes. Mixed it into pennoni regate pasta (like a larger version of penne).

Well, I *was* going to make braised chicken thighs with spiced-up cream of chicken soup and julienned veggies over rice, but when I took the chicken out of the fridge, there was an ... odor.

So they went in the garbage and I'm baking some Mexican-inspired stuffed bell peppers from the freezer and quickie Mexican rice (cooked in chicken broth with a half cup of jarred salsa replacing some of the liquid).

Yesterday's make-overs are today's re-runs.

Chicken pie.

Kay, that looks delicious! I love bread stuffing and really need to remember that it isn't just for holiday meals. I think I'll make up a batch and vacuum seal in packets. Yum.

I had tacos again this evening. They were so good last night, I couldn't resist having a couple more.
