I am going to butterfly a pork loin, stuff it with spinach leaves and possibly a little cream cheese, and then tie it back up again and pop in the oven. Will serve it with roast taters, steamed brussel sprouts, a couple of left-over brocolli florets and - probably just for me - a portion of left-over spaghetti from yesterday, tossed in a teensy bit of tomato sauce and generously sprinkled with grated cheddar and parmesan. Yum!

Can you tell I am hungry?

Gonna go a little light tonight because Glenn's got the full-blown plague I had about a week ago. His appetite isn't too vigorous, so we're having grilled salmon, rice pilaf and steamed spinach. He'll have hot tea to soothe his scratchy throat and I'm going to have raspberry iced tea I made yesterday. Homemade orange sherbet for dessert.

Gotcha Bea! I just added both to the pot. Thanks. By the way, collards take a long time to cook, right?

Glad you feel better, S&P!

We may do breakfast for dinner too. DH finished off the broccoli soup left from lunch and he's still hungry.

After much thought (not) I decided to sub out taco Tues on Wed for a one pot Wed meal. In spite of it being around 30, much better than a week ago, I feel like sitting over a plate of steaming comfort food and tacos just don't cut it.

Lollipop lamb rack rubbed with garlic, chopped rosemary, oil and S&P, sautéed spinach with onion, garlic, touch of red pepper flakes, and mashed potatoes made with some of the mascarpone cheese we made from the cream from the raw milk we used to make mozzarella and ricotta over the weekend. I do have pics of the cheeses, just haven't pulled them off the phone yet. For desert, we had brownies made with the rest of the mascarpone with a chocolate ganache on top, DECADENT and one of the best brownies I've ever had! All in all, one of the best meals we've had in a while.

Had lots of leftover odds and ends in the fridge: chicken, half a head of cabbage, some carrots, and mushrooms. I bought a few other things at the store and ended up making a Thai salad.

Ran around soooo late I bopped into the grocery store to pick up a couple on-sale Freschetta pizzas. Added a bit more cheese, plus some tired mushrooms and grape tomatoes, while the oven heated. Just finished licking my fingers. Not bad for $1 a serving (per box serving size), but not the thing I want to add to the meal rotation. Will have leftover nibbles for the rest of the week.

Next time throw those sprouts into the oven too. Cut the big ones in half or thirds, leaving the tiny ones whole. Toss with a bit of olive oil, s&p, and pop into the oven. Roast until tender and the outer leaves are a bit toasted. They're extra good if you sprinkle with shaved parm.
