Wednesday's Dinner? 01-07

I have a craving for a bacon, provolone, genoa salami, tomato, pickled jalapeņo and mayonnaise burger on a grilled bun tonight. Cold beer too.

SO agrees, motion carried. Burgers it is!

You can have something else if you'd rather. What's it gonna be?

Wind's blowing like a mad bandit. The brass monkey was brought in last night and, even with sun, it's cold as a witch's tit, as they say here. Perfect day for some form of food in a bowl.

In view of the fact that we were given a 15-pound cured country ham for Christmas, white beans with ham made the cut for tonight's meal. Glenn and I had cut the ham into many, many portions and managed to cut the bone into 3 huge pieces, so one of those nice meaty bones is in the crock-pot with a bunch of chopped onions, some bay leaves, a little more bits of ham just for good measure, a pound of great northern beans, and some water. It will all be ham/bean loveliness by suppertime. For good measure I just took a pan of cornmeal pan rolls out of the oven to have with the soup. We'll finish with some baklava for dessert. This tray of baklava might last until summer it's so rich.

Andy, will you be wearing shorts and sandals when you grill that burger? It's "brrrr" out there!


I'm smelling dinner right now! I tossed a 2-ish pound pork loin into the crockpot along with a generous amount of sauerkraut and a half-bottle of Guinness. I'll make mashed potatoes later. Those will snuggle up to the kraut. Also the last of the broccoli will be on our plates, for color if nothing else.

Lamb au Gratin, rather fiddly to do as I had to make short cannelloni tubes out of lasagne sheets.

I just don't know.

DH took leftover pizza in his lunch box, so I doubt he'll want that. It just may be a sandwich; smoked turkey, cheese, mayo, green chile and the lettuce thinning's out of the hoop house. We have an HOA meeting at 5:00.

My main dish will be a huge pork chop. I don't know what else yet.

Cheeseburger topped with Mezzetta mild pepper rings and catsup, cottage cheese and a Claussen pickle.

No bun, just a plate!
