What's for dinner? March 4, 2017

I'm browning some nice little short ribs now, and fixin' to chop up some veggies to include in a beef stock/pan dripping gravy. Potatoes are simmering on the stovetop now.

Smells so good and beefy in here.

What's on your menu for this evening?

Holy cow... I just realized I have no idea what's for dinner. I've been painting all day and suddenly noticed it's getting toward that time.

I'll probably just end up grabbing something quick and easy from the store.

I had a quart and a half of leftover lasagna sauce from last weekend, so yesterday I used it to make two 8x8" pans of lasagna - one for tonight and one for the freezer.

So, lasagna with green salad and garlic bread made with a homemade loaf of no-knead bread.

I'm in the same boat, Steve. Been busy all day and realized just a few minutes ago I have nothing set for dinner.

I was just informed we are going to try two Trader Joe's frozen meals we picked up a while back to try out. I believe they are Butter Chicken and Pork Vindaloo. I'll report back in the TJs thread.

I believe I'll pan fry burgers, sauté onions, and have baked fries on the side. I'd of liked to grill the burgers but the rain has me stymied.

Have a casserole of scalloped potatoes in the oven (new, potentially "keeper" recipe), and garlicky seasoned and browned up some bone-in and very meaty country pork ribs and have them braising. Glenn hasn't been eating much lately so this should do us.

I was impressed with the initial preparation of the potatoes and am about to die from the fragrance coming from the oven. Hope they're as good as they promise to be.

Picked up a rib eye @ Trader Joe's a couple of days ago... That with an Asian flavored saute of asparagus and mushrooms (also from TJ's) will do for both of us...

Brought home a rack of pre cooked ribs we sell in the deli counter. Broccoli salad, and Greek pasta salad...one thing we are actually going to do is boil a couple of cobs of corn...

Baked chicken parm, ricotta filled ravioli (made with my new Norpro ravioli maker that arrived today, using fresh pasta), green salad on the side. Marinara was from a batch I made last fall that was in the freezer.

Ravioli made with fresh pasta is waaaayyyyy better than store bought.

Everything sounds yummy!

Tonight, I am finally doing what I've been dying to try my homemade pizza.
This will be our very first homemade pizza in our new home, YAY!!

I made pizza dough from scratch yesterday (I like to leave it sit to "develop" more flavor as they do in Italy) and shredded up as nice block of whole milk Mozzarella cheese and I MAY slice up some fresh crimini mushrooms.

I have my pizza stone in the oven; I leave it heat for one hour before I do anything.
DANG IT!
I forgot to buy some corn meal for the "ball bearings", well, flour will do.
