What's for dinner on the double nickle? 5-5-2014

Trader Joe's Coq au Vin (pre-prepared, refrigerated) and home made mashed potatoes from a few days ago. Probably some kind of biscuits with that, please!

I'm planning to pound out some boneless pork chops and bread them with grated parm and panko. A little lemon at the table and a salad.

I don't know what to call it but I am making something my mother made when there was little money. She would soften up some chopped onions and sliced celery and then she would add 1 pd. of ground beef. After this was cooked she would add some chopped canned tomatoes, salt, pepper and some oregano. Simmer this for a while and at supper time we would put this on mashed potatoes. Brings back lots of great memories around the supper table.

Mac 'n cheese made with a mixture of cheddar and red Leicester cheeses with the last of the broccolini and peas tonight. A good one dish meal. Though I sez it meself as 'appen I shouldn't it was so good I had to have seconds. An orange to follow and with my breakfast banana on my cereal and the mixed salad on my sandwich at lunch I've had 6 of my 5-a-day. (Or seven if the glass of wine counts. It doesn't? Spoilsports!)
Don’t look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.

It's Cinco de Mayo. Poor planning on my part, I am at the farm and didn't bring a lot of ingredients...so tonight it is steamed veggies, a tossed salad, and some leftover chicken Jalfrezi.

Doctoring up the poor excuse we got for takeout pizza last night. I put on more pepperoni and extra shredded mozzerella, along with a liberal dose of pepper flakes. Broiled in the toaster oven.

We're having my take on 7-layer Mexican dip and chips. Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

A northernized version of Taco Salad. Iceberg lettuce first tossed with Catalina bottled salad dressing then piled with seasoned ground beef, grated cheese, pico de gallo, more sliced baby tomatoes and cucumber. On the side seasoned pintos. Not sure what I'm supposed to do with the lime slices. Dab a little behind my ears I guess.
