What's cooking Friday April 1, 2011

Just found out that DH is pulling double shifts again today (7 hours each from his two employers) so I have to make something for dinner that can be ready ahead. Then he can pick it up at the "drive through window" (or so it feels like some days ) between jobs.

I have some pork ribs I got on special yesterday so I am thinking I will braise them or even use the slow cooker and get them mostly cooked. I have heat packs so I will just wrap it up and he will finish it off there.

Not sure of sides yet.

What's everyone else having on this TGIF April Fool's day?

I saw a recipe for stuffed venison backstrap this morning that I think I will make with a pork tenderloin, if I can find a plain, unmarinated one in the store today.

Not a clue. I'm retaking my freezer inventory today so I can sit down and plan a few dishes, then I'm going to review my notebook full of recipes from DCers that I want to try and see what I can come up with.

Lasagna, caesar salad, undetermined veggie dish, and whatever dessert my SIL brings over. We are having Ken's sister, her husband, and Ken's Mom over for dinner tonight. I've prepped a few things because I work til 4 today. YIKES! They'll be here at 5:30. I've got a veggie tray, a shrimp ring or bacon wrapped scallops and tortilla pinwheels (tuna, salmon, egg salad, chicken, ham, pb and banana, and maybe greek) as our appys. I'm undecided about whether to serve the shrimp ring and scallops. I think the veggie tray and pinwheels might cover me for appys.

Wow, Alix, that's quite a spread! Is the lasagna already made?

I made it last night. Its in the fridge right now. I'll have my daughter take it out about 3 to warm it up to room temp and I'll put it in the oven when I get home.

I have no bloomin' idea, but the freezer is bountiful and I'm certain I'll find something good when I go to look.

If nothing else, there's an awesome raisin pie I made yesterday. Glenn says it's "not just ANY raisin pie" he's ever tasted. I will admit it really, really is good. I'm so glad he likes raisin pie. Not everyone does and I love them.
