What's for dinner Sunday, August 30, 2006?

I'm leaning towards doing a rotisserie chicken, the salad I've been stuck on for a few weeks now and a wild mushroom and asparagus risotto.

But I may change everything after browsing around the net.

What's on your table tonight?

I think we're having vol-au-vents. It will be a puff pastry that is filled with a creamy mushoom & sausage sauce & a salad. Menu subject to change though.

salad. Thinking about making Boston Cream Pie.

Pot roast (mostly using ironchef's method, but without bouquet garni). Can't decide whether to make biscuits or mashed potatoes to go with it.

Well, I decided to give a choice - chicken and risotto or meatloaf and mashed potatoes - the "he-men" want meatloaf and mashed potatoes.

I'm going to experiment with the meatloaf and make a wild mushroom port wine gravy (hopefully he won't see me get into his good port to make this ) - but I'll still use the usual beef, veal, and pork, onion, milk, fontina cheese, etc. as the base.

Now, back to re-writing my grocery list.

There's nothing better than an open-faced roast beef sandwich the next day!!!!!!!!

Amen, elfie (nice to see you here, btw!). We are likely to have leftovers - have a 2-lb roast cooking for only 3 people.
