Whatcha eatin' on National Pizza Day, Feb 9, 2018

I thought I'd get the party started, although I haven't cooked dinner yet. I do have my mise en place mostly done.

Anyone having pizza?

No pizza here. I had a bowl of pea soup and a chicken sandwich. SO had golobkis.

I made some cheese raviolis, penne pasta, sauce, and some homemade garlic bread.

I've been alternating between yard work on this beautiful sunny day, and getting some things done inside. Time got away from me, so I doctored up a can of Progresso lentil soup with a chopped cooked sweet Italian sausage link, and some onions. I had never had Progresso lentil soup before, so threw a can in the shopping cart last week to try it - not bad at all, and hit the spot. A few saltines on the side.

I envy your beautiful weather, Cheryl! Take-out enchiladas indigenous here. Delicious, but they used some really HOT onions! Thankfully we aren't going out tonight and I don't have to breathe on anyone.

With all of the carbonara talk happening, I finally broke down and made some penne with wild boar bacon...

I almost made spaghetti carbonara last night, but decided to do it this weekend, instead. Nice twist with penne and wild boar.

I like to take liberties with carbonara..Guanciale, panchetta, bacon, ham, sausage...it's all been done around here..enough to make the purists squirm...
..some times I even add cream......

Thank goodness for leftovers! (Rough night last night - rode my Charlie Horse most of the night...) We almost finished up the stuffed peppers; the mashed potatoes and corn are gone, along with a partial bag of baby peas from the freezer. I'll make potential new leftovers tomorrow.

Leftovers are gone, here, so I decided to cook something I haven't cooked in a very long time... coq au vin. This one turned out better than any I've made in the past. I used a California Cabernet Sauvignon instead of a french burgundy. I also used Better than Bouillon to make my chicken stock for the first time. That stuff is pretty darned good, IMO. I also made my first Beurre Manie to use as a thickener. So simple, and it worked great.
