What Are You Meating for Dinner? 20-Dec-2013

We have some friends coming over this evening and I have been wanting meat loaf for a while, but I have been too busy to think about it.

I am using this recipe for it but I dropped some of the lemon juice and added jalapeno powder to the glaze (jalapenos from our garden that I dried and ground up).

I have mashed/whipped taters planned and either corn or peas (or both).

You don't have to be making a meat dish for dinner to let us know what you are meating for dinner today.

We're having pork chops California, which are pork chops browned then cooked in a tomato-brown sugar sauce and topped with lemon slices. Sides will include buttered poppy seed-sprinkled noodles, Italian green beans. Iced and/or hot tea to drink and spice cake for dessert.

Harry, nice little array of bottles to make up a sauce with. I think that's the main reason I don't stir-fry more often. Every sauce I make tastes the same because I have no idea what I'm doing
Well, that and I never seem to fill up. I need an Italian stir-fry dish

I think I might grill a couple small lobster tails tonight and whip up a pasta side for dinner.

It's warm enough to use the grill so I'll throw on a couple of pieces of kielbasa and serve it up with a veggie and a salad.

Too busy at the moment for "real" cooking so it was a jacket potato done in the m/wave and cheddar cheese and store bought coleslaw with a glass or three of white wine. (Tiring and tiresome day!)

In a way I'll be glad when Christmas is over. Not in the mood. I'll probably be OK by Christmas Eve but so far - forget it!

Brought the neighbors some cookies, when we walked in it smelled heavenly. They had just cooked a standing rib roast (prime rib), to perfection! They sent us home with a big chunk of it. I think that we got the better end of that deal!

He had rubbed it with a lot of fresh garlic and rosemary and it was fantastic, cooked to perfection and the flavor of the garlic and rosemary really came through. This was the first time that he had cooked prime rib, and he nailed it!

We had some leftover rice pilaf (Andy M's recipe) and some green beans.

All week, both DH's and my workplaces have had magnificent spreads in the lounge, and we have indulged.

So tonight I made tuna salad with chopped hard-boiled eggs. We'll pick at it with crackers.

Same here. I take care of the food services contract for my employer and today's Christmas lunch was grilled Atlantic salmon with garlic mashed and baby asparagus. Some sort of fantastic sauce on the salmon. I had a hotdog for supper.
