Whatcha having Tues. Sept. 6?

After much consideration, it has been decided that we will have Salisbury steaks, mashed taters and gravy and broccoli with cheese sauce. What'll be on your table?

I made fresh rosemary garlic bread yesterday and allocated some of the dough to make pizza crusts, so that's what we'll have tonight. One of our favorite seasonal pizzas right now is Neapolitan style, with rough chopped tomatoes (not a sauce, per se), basil, and fresh homemade mozzarella. Simple and delicious!

My BIL is coming for dinner tonight so I am making salmon, ribs, corn on the cob, baked potatoes and raw veggies.

Dad is having pork chop, potato, carrots and lots of gravy!

I've never had Salisbury Steak. I've always seen it as a hamburger with gravy, but I'm sure there is more to it than that.

Could you explain what it is? Even a recipe maybe?

That sounds so good Steve! I've been on a homemade pizza kick lately, and have discovered that sometimes, less is more. I did a (raw) shrimp, onion, mushroom, cheese the other night that was outstanding. No sauce, just olive oil and Italian herbs.
Dang, I think I have to get to the store........

I take it you don't like hamburgers or gravy, or just not together?

IMO salisbury steak is nothing more than a meatloaf patty with gravy. Very close to a hamburger with gravy, but with meatloaf type ingredients added into the "hamburger steak". I tend to work my patties a bit more, giving them a denser texture. I'm sure there's a more scientific, or accurate, definition
If you don't like hamburgers with gravy, you probably won't like salisbury steak.

Doctor Salisbury came up with this as part of his health regimen that required food to be shredded to aid in digestion. He was also big on chewing food a great number of times before swallowing. You can find the good Doctor out on the web. God bless Al Gore!

Al Gore? Is he the one that said the steak should come frozen?

I'm going to pan fry some pork sirloins with onion gravy. A veggie and mashed potato will go along side.
