As it is Chinese New Year, may go with a Chinese twist and coat your chops with 5 spice before cooking or making a Chinese style marinade.

I have just finished making bread so the boys have had Hawaian burgers in very fresh buns (still warm).

Gung Hee Fat Choy. I, too am making a noodle dish in honor of the new year. Because there are only two of us, I am looking to do Singapore Rice Noodles. Because we all need noodles for the new year. I think I'll make a salad before the noodles.

I have some leftover tortillas from dinner last night, so I'm going to fry them, then layer them with browned ground beef, beans, corn, cheese, salsa...for a casserole. A green slald and leftover key lime tart. But if I were closer to Georgia, I'd definitely go to Mama's house.
Saludos, Karen

chicken-fried steak with gravy.... sort of. I should use cube steaks, but only have hamburger. Instead of making homemade gravy, I'm using the cream of mushroom soup that I didn't use last night. I hate to waste anything. So it's like a "dollar store" chicken-fried steak dinner. I'm having a regular hamburger patty that shrunk to the size of a meatball ... with some baked cauliflower.
A little kindness goes a long way.

For the Chinese New Year, I made potstickers with dipping sauce and a stir-fry with fish balls. Never tried fish balls before - I'm afraid we won't be trying them again. They were much more dense than I expected. But it was a good dinner.

For Chinese New Year, I made tacos!!!

Actually I made them for my middle kid, he's 5 today and loves tacos for dinner!
Followed by cake and vanilla ice cream....
But if you'll excuse me I hid the GOOD ice cream downstairs and I'm gonna go get it since they're all in bed!

Not that there's anything wrong with that.....
