What's for dinner? Saturday 3-21-15

I'm in a real cooking slump today - plenty to make for dinner, but no inclination to do it. I think I'll call out for Chinese delivery.

What's on everyone's plate for this evening?

I'm planning on some stuffed red bell peppers. I'll blister and remove the skins first like I usually do because the last time I made them, I skipped that step and they weren't nearly as good. They also were underdone by the time the meat filling was done inside. I learned my lesson.

Easy baked potatoes on the side.

Got home late and tired so by-passed the meatballs I was going to cook and have with tomato and olive sauce and spaghetti, in favour of scrambled eggs on toasted home-made bread with tomato salad, followed by a Conference pear and a couple of rock buns from this week's baking. Very quick but very good. Eggs came from a friend's "girls" and they are beautifully rich and thick when beaten.

Feeling lazy here. Didn't feel like cooking so we had hot dogs and Boston baked beans.

I changed my mind about Chinese delivery and forced myself to use up some veggies in the fridge, and I'm glad I did. I hate to waste fresh produce just because I'm in a cooking slump.

I made a huge salad with iceburg, romaine, cukes, carrots, celery, radishes, red onions, topped it with chopped hard cooked egg and croutons, and mixed up with a good sized spoonful of Marie's buttermilk chipotle ranch dressing. It was delish. Now my veggie bins are cleaned out and I saved the $ from Chinese delivery. Win.

I corned two chunks of brisket and since the kids took every last bit of our corned beef and cabbage leftovers, we're having the second chunk. On the advice of a friend, I sprinkled it with a bit of the leftover pickling spice mix, ground coriander, and a bunch of garlic and cracked pepper. It's wrapped in foil in a 250F oven for 5 hours. Colcannon is on my Things I Have Never Cooked list, so we're having that on the side, although I was thinking of adding a little sharp cheddar, so I suppose that's not really colcannon.

That brings back memories. My mom was Boston Irish and I grew up on hot dogs and B&M baked beans almost every Sat. night. B&M brown bread from a can, too...if we were lucky.
