I have absolutely no idea.

DH is off today so it can be a regular dinner. However, he has got to pick up the new dishwasher and hopes to have it installed today. As well, he wants to mud the ceiling so I can paint.

So I am thinking A&W, Swiss Chalet, or something that can go from freezer to Microwave. I'll get back to you!

I'm thawing a pork tenderloin that I want to stuff with something and pan roast. Don't know about a side to go with that yet.

Updates Goulash

New here. Seems like a really neat idea socializing food this way.

Tonight:

My Mom used to make American style goulash - with the ground beef, beef cube and elbow noodles. I used to love how it smelled, but always thought the taste was watered down and dreaded goulash night. Now that I am grown I have made authentic goulash many times which has a more robust flavor. It is really good, but different than what Mom used to make. Tonight I am going to attempt to cross the two. So I still get the homey simple flavors punched up with a lot of richness and background. We'll see how it goes. It is about -5 with the windchill here and the house is all mine - husband and son are away. I am tired of cereal. And this sounds like nostalgia - of sorts - in a bowl.

Think I will start with browning the beef (or in this case ground bison) with onion and a little red pepper. Add three cloves of minced fresh garlic, 1 heaping Tablespoon Hungarian paprika, 1 teaspoon kosher salt and half that of black pepper. Add some fire roasted crushed tomatoes and maybe a little tomato paste for depth. Thin it out with beef stock and let it simmer for a while. Then add my noodles - elbow of course. If it still needs a kick I will throw in some adobo sauce for a slight smoky flavor or a little cayenne for heat - not traditional, but I like it in weather like this. Maybe a little powdered garlic because the flavor is different than fresh and gives some backbone to a dish. Finish it off with minced fresh parsley.

That is probably what I am doing tonight. Good luck everyone. Nothing like the empty pot staring you in the face. Worse than a blank page sometimes.

Oh my. I know that feeling well. Come in from a long day and realize you haven't put anything out for dinner and have to be creative. BAH!

Well, I HAD time to prep, but I just found out we have to be somewhere in an hour and a half, my husband won't be home for 2.5 hours so its a catch as you can night. Sigh. Think I might root through the freezer for something easy or pick up a deli chicken. I'm in lazy mode.
