What is for Dinner this Friday, April 17th, 2009?

It's early here.. just after 4 am, but I'm awake.

I'm making TNT Easy and Fast Chili, using very lean ground beef. With that, cornbread (from the freezer and for me) and crackers (I found Parmesan-Garlic Triscuits crackers, and they are awesome! They are for Mark ...a few with his chili. They are whole wheat, so a few won't matter, I don't think).

To start things off... tossed salads... Iceberg/spinach mix with carrot and celery... Italian dressing.

What are you having on this TGIF?


A little kindness goes a long way.

I'm home alone tonight since DH has class. I'll probably warm up some of the chicken joes we had the other day.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Pasta of some kind with tomatoes and garlic and grated Parmigiana Reggiano. ( I don't like to cook on Friday nights, and this requires minimal effort.)
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

Hmmm two for pork. I was thinking pork myself. I;ll see. Tonight is our first night home together as a family in a week so I'd like us to have something nice to finish the week off right. I know for sure I'm making a lemon pie for dessert. We have someone stopping by tonight so I need something to serve. I think maybe a pork roast would be nice. Shopping time!

Here is what the three of us are having. Herbed chicken in a rich sauce of Italian sausage, onions, and sweet red peppers. With that I love croissants and green beans almondine. For desert it has to be something chocolate with whipped cream. I love real whipped cream.

'mo meat today. i plated new york strip, roasted shallot whipped taters, & roasted root veggies for presentation & critiqueing, then glopped on the food..... a grilled portabello, a piece of artichoke, a slice of a grilled meat that resembled flank, Chef said it was something else, a sliver of meatloaf, garlic spinach, oven-roasted tomato slice, oblique carrot. snacked on fries & roasted baby potatoes while we cooked.

we also cooked the pittsburgh-rare medallions, burgers, 6 roasts, & liver/bacon/caramelized onions.

i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
& rock on, PITTSBURGH-
