What's Cooking Today? Wed. Oct. 16

Today I'll be re-stocking the freezer.

I'll be using some of the turkey stock from yesterday to make brown rice.

I'll save a couple of cups to make the gravy/broth for turkey neck stew. I cheat and use a couple of packets of brown (or pork) gravy mix. It comes out tasty using the stock instead of water, as long as the stock isn't salted.

If there is enough stock left, I'll make wild rice too to store in bags in the freezer, along with the brown rice.

I'm also going to make fresh broccoli with cheddar sauce, sweet potatoes with butter (oleo) and garlic.

What's cooking today at your house?

I have a half of sweet potato I need to use up. I also have a couple of Italian sausages I can make with it.

So much meatloaf talk...

I'll be making my regular mix, ground beef, sauteed onion and green pepper, the usual suspects of egg, s&p. I'm cooking up a package of spanish rice and mixing that in. Free form loaf with cheddar and salsa on top, served with sour cream and more salsa. Have to see what's in the store to serve as a side. Likely a green salad.

I'll be finishing off the nacho dip sometime during the day, so we'll see where that leaves me for dinner. I'm kind of in a meatloaf mood, too. Maybe those stuffed potatoes.

You know it's fall when you start thinking about meatloaf

I'm doing mine in the toaster oven.

There's very little I can accomplish in my toaster oven in the way of baking. The top gets burned too quickly. And I've noticed it not toasting as well lately anyway. Time for an upgrade.

I've had my eye on a Breville toaster oven. But...... I need other things and a new toaster oven isn't a necessary.

You can make meat loaf on the grill. Use a disp pie pan to catch the drippings.
