Whatch'a got cooking ... Welsh Rarebit day (2014-09-03)

That's right, another national food holiday you probably didn't mark on the calendar.

I took the leftover "naked oats" and made it into an "Indian" stir fry--kale, cabbage, Swiss Chard, grated carrots, onion, garlic, zucchini, tomato, paneer, methi, curry powder. Very tasty, but no name for it. Side of homemade cucumber raita made with Greek yogurt. Meanwhile, I have to eat that rib steak from Conrad that has been marinating/aging in the fridge since last night...maybe make it later for a steak salad while i'm on site tomorrow...

What jumped out of your fridge for dinner tonight?

I'm making pork chops. Haven't decided if I'll do kadesma's onion sauce or just grill them. Either way we'll have mashed taters with them. Not sure of veggie yet either.

After a marathon day of shopping, I'm just having a couple of Banquet pot pies for dinner. I'm pooped and sore.

I'll get cooking soon, but not today.

We have a leftover pork chop and some leftover taco meat we need to deal with, along with a veritable plethora of cherry toms and green beans.

a goodly sized pat of butter swirled in
add back in the turkey and any collected juices

I made meatloaf (see how you are influencing me!) and had new potatoes and peas with it. Gravy not required as meatloaf juicy enough.

The meatloaf was OK but not brilliant - a bit bland. It needs more seasoning I think. The texture was good though. Better luck next time.

Then I made my mistake with the pudding.

I like to keep a bottle of maple syrup in my cupboard. Nice on porridge or with natural yoghourt. The last time I ran out I put it on the list. The day I went shopping I hadn't time to go to the health food shop where I usually get it so, noticing it on the s/market shelf, I put a bottle in my shopping trolley. So I decide to have some home made yoghourt with maple syrup after my lunch.

I really should wear my reading glasses when I go shopping. What I thought was Maple Pancake Syrup turned out to be Maple Flavoured Pancake Syrup with "flavoured" in very small type ! Yuck!

I also made a meatloaf for supper. It's called an upside down meatloaf because you put the brown sugar in the bottom of a lightly greased 9x5 inch loaf pan and then a layer of catsup, before you put the meatloaf mixture in the pan. With it we had some mashed potatoes, corn and sliced tomatoes.

We used to make a similar one using a can of whole cranberry sauce for the bottom layer, then ketchup and finally the meatloaf.

Today I have evolved into more of a meatloaf purist.

I really miss cold meatloaf sandwiches with Russian dressing!
