What is for Dinner, Friday, March 13th?

My sweetie is sick this morning, so I'm not sure what to make. It's going to be either tuna-noodle casserole or chicken noodle soup.

What are you having for this Friday night dinner?

Oh, pizza sounds soooo good. I wish we could have that!

Thank you, beth. He's not going to work, so I'll make him semi-homemade chicken noodle soup. I have to go shopping after work, so I might just make myself some pizza!

If cabbage is the feature ingredient, you could make cabbage rolls. Do you like those? They either are simmered in tomato sauce or basted with their own juices. You can take the pan juices and make a creamy gravy. If it's a side dish, there is another option on the bottom. Here are a couple of recipes.

Cooks.com - Recipe - Stuffed Cabbage Rolls


Stuffed Cabbage Rolls
  • large head cabbage
  • 1 pound ground chuck
  • 1/3 cup rice, raw, can use instant or regular
  • 1 small onion, grated
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 large can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 3 cans (14.5 ounces each) diced tomatoes
  • 3 to 4 teaspoons lemon juice (1 large lemon)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 to 1 cup brown sugar
Remove about 15 large leaves from the cabbage; cut off very thick part of each leaf. Pour boiling water over the cabbage to wilt the leaves.
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine ground chuck with the rice, grated onion, eggs, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Place a mound of meat mixture in cupped part of each softened cabbage leaf. Fold over sides of cabbage leaf; roll up. In bottom of Dutch oven, place a few of the remaining leaves. Arrange layers of cabbage rolls, seam side down, and sliced onions in a Dutch oven or large casserole. Pour on tomato sauce, tomatoes, lemon juice, and 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Bring to a boil on stove top. Sprinkle with brown sugar, to taste. Bake, covered, for 1 hour. Uncover and bake 2 hours longer.

One of my birthday gifts last month from DH was a copy of Rachael Ray's new "Big Orange Book" cookbook, so I'm planning on trying a recipe from that: "Welsh Rarebit Burgers", which are actually more of a "patty melt", since they're served on toasted Pumpernickel bread instead of rolls.

Tonight it's chicken in a cilantro-almond sauce. I haven't decided about the sides yet, possibly a stuffed flatbread of some sort.

It's been a very busy day for me, so I think I'm going to take a plate of roast beef and veggies out of the freezer or I could have some of the split pea soup left from last night. I really don't feel like cooking,.
