What's for dinner 2nd Jan 2012?

My first time cooking as a 20 year old, and my first time experimenting with Quorn mince.

Never tried Quorn before, but I recently learned how it's high in protein and low in fat, and I need all the protein I can get at the moment. Hopefully I like it, and then I can buy the fillets to use instead of chicken breasts. I always wanted to be a vegetarian, but I just don't think I can do it.
Anyway, we'll see how my Quorn bolognese turns out tonight, you never know, I might be a convert! Fingers crossed it's a success with my family.

I got the buns and I got the burger, so I think I'll go with loose meat sandwiches tonight. I'll cook extra meat for quick tacos tomorrow.

Honey dijon chicken over jasmine rice, and a salad.

SO and I are going to Red Robin tonight. Neither of us has ever been before. The chain is fairly new to the area and one opened about 10 minutes from here. Since I have a gift certificate, we decided to do that.

give us a review. There is one in Dubuque, but when I get out there I'm usually looking for ethnicity I can't get here in Galena. But I'm curious anyway, one opened there a year or so ago.

I've always pictured it as a burger joint but their menu is much more extensive.

For tonight it's breaded pork chops, baked potatoes and creamed corn.

I just started a pot of Brunswick stew. We'll have that and I'll grill some ham and Swiss on rye sandwiches to go with it. I subbed smoked turkey for the chicken this time since that is what I had in the freezer.

We're having nice big pork barbecue sandwiches using the pork we bought on our motorcycle ride on Saturday. I also took out a container of Baked Beans Quintet from the freezer to go with. Wonderful baked beans done the easy way. Glenn loves them and I do, too.

Of course, Christmas cookies for dessert...or a slice of fresh raspberry pie I made earlier today.
