What Was For Dinner - Mon. 20th Oct

DH is tennising again tonight, but thanks to this forum, I made some killer tomato soup, and may do S&P's buffalo shrimp, since I already steamed the shrimp in Old Bay seasoning.

A boiled dinner with, cabbage, carrots, celery, onions, a ham slice and a ring of kielbasa steamed over two cups of seasoned water for 30-40 minutes.

Tomorrow some of the vegetables will make an appearance at breakfast as a sort of hash and I will use the stock to make a small pot of split pea soup for lunch!

Breakfast for supper. French toast for DH and daughter #2 and pancakes for Bugs and me.

We love Philly steak and cheese sandwiches.

This is the closest recipe I could find to mine with some exceptions:

Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich Recipe : Emeril Lagasse : Food Network

I use red onion instead of white, and use loads of provolone and swiss cheese. Some leftover sauteed mushrooms in garlic and butter are wonderful on these, and we use a mix of ranch and zesty Italian dressings on it. I also threw on some bacon slices I had leftover.

We drooled, we ate, and we watched one of the best movies ever: "Dr. Zhivago."

Afterwards, we had homemade cinnamon-raisin applesauce and because the movie was long, we raided the freezer for some mint chocolate chip ice cream.

I'm stuffed!

CCL, those sound really good! But I can tell you neither Geno nor Pat would approve. We tried them both when we were in Philly a couple of years back - we liked Pat's better.

Lots of good-looking plates here! I was half-way through mine when I realized it was pretty enough for a photo session. Oh, well.

I set a half-breast of turkey on a "rack" of whole carrots and celery stalks, along with quartered onions. Basted with a touch of olive oil and Kitchen Bouquet, then sprinkled a mix of seasonings on top. I also made some asparagus to go along with the roasted veggies, and brown rice mix. I sauteed onion in oil, tossed the rice into the onion to coat, then cooked the rice while I toasted and chopped walnuts, chopped parsley, and plumped golden raisins. Mixed that into the rice, and then we made it all-gone! I still have turkey, enough for a meal. I need leftovers tomorrow...I'm getting my hair cut.

It just struck me as funny, creative - no big deal. Btw, I don't work and we still usually eat around 7:30 or 8.

But we're in Washington, DC, for a couple of days. DH was at a conference and I went to the National Zoo today. We met back at the hotel at about 5:30, enjoyed some wine and then headed out to dinner. We found a great Asian restaurant near Dupont Circle and got back just in time to watch "Sleepy Hollow."

Thumbs up

salt and pepper - that looks a very interesting dish! Is it your own concoction? I have never heard of cedar wraps...is the wood thin enough to fold over? (I guess if dampened that could work). How did you cook them - in oven?
