What's cooking Sunday Sept 18th?

I've got my big meal figured out for today. In keeping up with my own personal challenge, making a food that the city of the team the Browns (my football team) are playing is known for, this Sunday it will be a breaded pork tenderloin sandwich. A popular sandwich in Indianapolis. I may also make a small corn casserole, something else Indiana is known for.

Before that it will be a big breakfast though

We're having my MIL over for dinner. We will be having Chicken a la Alix Killer Coleslaw, baby shells to go with the chicken, cooked veggie to be named later (likely some peppers, onions and zucchini sauteÚd with some garlic and lemon zest), and for dessert a raspberry cheesecake tart.

Alix, REALLY?!? Lemon pepper. You really are Lemon Lady!

Although, I don't know why you use lime juice on your chicken instead of, hmmm I don't know.....LEMON!!!

Hey, I have seven lemons in my fridge right now... that's a LOT for me. Alix must have a lemon tree though. I bought six lemons yesterday to try out the ground lamb recipe someone posted. Kayelle maybe. I've got it printed out somewhere.

Hi Kathy....I've never used it, but it appears to be just a basic commercial brown gravy....If I were you I would make a roux based gravy....(flour browned in a fat)...Hopefully a fat where your protein was cooked...chicken, pork chops etc. I would add a little finely diced onion (maybe some bell pepper) to the roux for a few minutes, and then add water...A stock would be much better for flavor....Chicken, pork, beef, etc. ~~ Salt, pepper, garlic and any other herb/spice you like would round it out....Hope this Helps....

PS....And yours will be better then Pillsbury!!!

I will be making my spaghetti sauce today with meatballs and Italian sausage, but I I'll serve veal parmigiana with spaghetti and save the meatballs and sausage for another meal. This shall be accompanied by Boudin sourdough bread and butter and a 2008 Collezione Di Paolo Chianti
