What's for Dinner Friday January 15th?

The meal of concern today is the mid day meal. We are having friends over, and knowing that we tucker out fairly early in the day, they suggested a mid day meal. I thought that was a great idea. so...

once again, the pasta, chicken, provolone and chili concoction, oven baked yukon gold and sweet potatoes, and cream puffs with chocolate sauce

What are you having?

I'm eating super light today and tonight so I can splurge and have a piece of this. It's a Strawberry Pound Cake Torte I made for my son getting a straight A report card. It's his favorite!

We are going to have Sloppy Joes, corn and raw veggies. I usually have tater tots with this...but I'm trying to be good! Shock my body with fresh, raw food.

Sloppy Joes

1 lb burger
1/4 cup diced celery
1/2 cup diced onion
1 can tomato soup, undiluted
1/4 cup ketchup
1 Tbs BBQ sauce, if desired
Hamburger buns

Brown and drain burger; add celery and onions and saute long enough for the onions to soften. Add in the tomato soup and ketchup. Simmer gently for at least 10 minutes. Serve on toasted buns.
Serves 4

My husband is cooking Shimp cakes. He is developing a new recipe and I get to be the tester. I know it is a hard job, but someone has to do it.

Well it is about 3PM and there is 2lbs of lamd stew cubes thawed in the refrigerator. The packs a sealed so I can't tell the size of the pieces. So it maybe lamb stew or shish kebob.

It is in the mid fifties and there is no way I am wasting that kind of weather. I got a couple filets and will be grilling them up (though mine will likely not have a chance to introduce itself before it leaves the grill) with some grilled asparagus and potatos ala Harry (chunk em, toss in some bell pepper and onion, coat in olive oil and wrap in foil, place on grill).

Even gonna eat outside, and the patio heater is ready to go. Is it spring already (newp).

I ended up making home made pizza instead of spaghetti.
