Whats For Dinner Monday, April 13th

Slow-cooked Bolognese sauce, broken up mafalde pasta, and parmesan cheese.

Green salad with a homemade caesar dressing.

Oreo & Kahlua parfaits - whipped cream with some Kahlua and crushed Oreos folded in... mmmmm...

I'm making enough bolognese to last us a few days.

We are going out with my family today for our Easter meal. It will actually be a brunch because DH has to go to work. For a light dinner later for Dad and me, I am planning toasted ham & Swiss cheese sandwiches with salad. We have lots of yummy ham left from yesterday!

Never did cook my turkey yesterday. Instead I had the "pleasure" of feeling bad and throwing up all afternoon. Went to bed at 8 p.m., which is waaaay early for me. Wasn't in much of a mood to face a turkey.

Feeling better today, so the bird gets cooked.

i hope you feel better soon. we are also sick to different degrees (or stages of whatever this stinky thing is) here. i have it in my achy ears, stuffy nose and very sore throat at the moment and a nasty vertigo when i move my head. lying down seems to make it worse.

hope you are feeling better Katie E.

I will finish up with an experiment I started a few days ago. I made 6 smallish pizza crusts; filled, baked and ate three of them, and partially baked off the other three of them. They kinda bubbled up a bit and I am not sure they will easily hold much filling without sliding off.

So I plan on baking off three pizzas with sauce, chevon sausage and mozzarella cheese tonight.

And I think I have finally found my calling in life...as a mozzarella cheese maker..I am finishing off my second cheese of the season and it is looking pretty good

I have a package of chicken thighs that I hope to transform into a tasty dish with some rice and a saute pan.

We have leftover pork crown roast from yesterday so I think I will make a barbecue sauce, heat the macaroni and cheese and veggies. We have leftover desserts too. Some who were coming for Easter didn't get here due to one of them having kidney stones and having to spend the night in the hospital, so we have oodles of leftovers.

I hope you feel better, Katie! I wasn't feeling that good yesterday, either.... missed church in the morning and home from work today... just awful run-down feeling. Dinner made me feel alittle better last night, but was icky again this morning...suffering from an awful nervous stomach. The coffee I made Mark this morning smelled so good, but didn't get near it with a ten ft. pole.

Anyway, we are having Sausage and Egg Biscuit Bake from Pillsbury.com. I don't have mushrooms or red bell pepper, but it should still be good. With that,
will be salads and some vegie.
