settled on grilled cheese, choice of cheese.
pepper jack for me, cheddar for the old kid, mozz for the little 2.
my guess is dh will go for pepper jack, so it's all sliced for when he's ready.
:)
i love being a wife.

The gravy I made by deglazing the pan with chicken stock and apple juice (an after thought) was incredible. I'll have to remember that one. I learn more on this site every day and apply it to what I am cooking. Just by putting a bunch of stuff I read together. Thanks DC.

That looks really good, Pacanis.

I made New Mexico Pork Chop Bake from a Tex-Mex cookbook - I sauteed onions, Anaheim peppers and garlic; browned pork chops; mixed rice, water, 1 can diced tomatoes and 1 can Rotel, cumin, Mexican oregano and salt; and put it all together in a baking dish for about 1 hour. Also made a cast-iron skillet of jalapeno corn bread. It was my first time trying this recipe and it's a keeper - yum!

Mmmm, that sounds really good, GG! And thank you!

When making cornbread with added extras, like your jalapenos, do you just add it to the batter before you pour it in the skillet to be baked? Are the jar ones OK, or do you need the drier fresh ones?

I seriously have to give that a try sometime soon.

Thanks deelady!
I love Stouffers. I could never get a handle on cooking it though... I guess I always wanted to eat it too quick

Hi, Pacanis. Yes, I stir it into the batter just before baking. I'd guess the jar ones would be fine - I'd pat them dry first. I used fresh because I have them in the garden

I made a chuck roast marinated in a creation of mine (panang curry paste, creamy peanut butter, brown sugar, and veggie oil), then pan seared and finished in the oven. Had it with mashed potatoes and gravy, and green beans.
Definitely a hit, none left over LOL.
