Question What's cookin' on Sunday, April 1st?

I have the ingredients to make Chinese pepper steak served over white rice. But I was also thinking about making chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, and applesauce. The second meal ideas sounds very comforting. It reminds me of visiting my grandmother. When my family used to visit she would make fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, a vegetable, biscuits, and apple pie for dessert. If we spent the night she would make pancakes or cinnamon rolls for breakfast.

What are you having for dinner or baking on Sunday?

Sierra, where've you been? Or did I miss something?

Don't know what's for dinner. Have a loooong rehearsal tonight that is done at 8. Maybe I'll grab something in town.

I was thinking about chicken fried steak too. At first I just wanted it on a bun but you have made me hungry for the whole meal. We recently ate a lot of applesauce during an illness so it's probably going to be an apple crisp.
This will be a nice way to start off April (which I consider to be the first spring day).
It snowed lightly in NM yesterday 03/31/07, did either of you guys get snow?

The boy is currently making a lovely frittata for his brekkie, mushrooms and spring onions. I'm having my usual steel cut oats with blueberries.

For dinner, left over potato, onion and leek soup. Not very exciting, I know!

Here it is the wee hours of the morning, the stores are closed, and y'all are making me hungry.

Am thinking about a lightly toasted English muffin, topped with a small, thin, chicken fried steak, then a poached egg, with a lovely white sausage gravy (made with a bunch of white pepper and maybe a splash of hot sauce just to make it interesting) poured on top.

Course there has to be taters. Maybe a mixture of thinly sliced regular white and sweet potatoes that are deep fried. Or just home fries. Don't feel like deep frying at the moment.

And on the plate an olio of colorful fruit pieces (one must eat healthfully).

Presentation is everything.

Since I have almost none of those ingredients in the fridge at the moment, it is just a wistful idea.


And am supposed to be cramming for my cholesterol test, and those items should not be on my mind.

Sigh again. Double sigh, dag nab it, rats, rats, a thousand time rats.

Just a thought. Take care and God bless.

how about breakfast.
I'm making french toast and since I don't have any syrup, I will thin down some strawberry preserves and use that as my syrup.

With the leftovers from the roasted chicken last night, we're having chicken salad.

Jeez though, now chicken fried steak is sounding very good!

Barb L., what is spaghetti salad? Is it like macaroni salad?
