What's for dinner this Sunday, March 6th?

We've been doggie sitting for DD and SIL. They will be coming to pick up their babies and will be staying for dinner. I've got a pork tenderloin thawed out so I'm thinking breaded pork tenderloin, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans and maybe some fried okra and corn on the cob.

That chuck roast I took out of the freezer yesterday and put in the fridge wasn't even close to being started to thaw, so I said to heck with ya and stuck it back in the freezer. I wasn't really in the mood for stew today anyway. So that's what I'm not having for dinner... sometimes it's better if I work backwards and eliminate food that I'm not hungry for. I do have a chicken in the refrigerator... with giblets even. I might make a beer can chicken with giblet gravy. At least I haven't ruled it out yet, lol.

Uncle Bob, I love " butter beans" if you mean the giant soft velvety Lima beans I am thinking of. How do you prepare them? What is Twin Oaks Plantation Chicken?

Yep...That's the ones... Or First Cousins... Actually these are smaller and greener. Carolina Sieva (pole) variety. You may be talking about the King of the Garden variety which is a much larger bean. Both are delicious. I simmer in salted water, with a pinch of course ground black pepper, seasoned with about 3 or 4 pieces of Tasso...about as big as your little finger, and a small piece or two of bacon end scraps....

Twin Oaks Plantation Chicken is one of the Sunday Dinner Signature dishes here at Twin Oaks Plantation Restaurant.

Trying a recipe for Malaysian Beef Curry out of the most recent BA mag. If the spice paste, which I just made, is any indication for the rest of recipe, we're in for a treat! It calls for kaffir lime leaves which are impossible to find here, so I'm subbing leaves from the key lime tree.

dh REALLY liked the chicken and noodles, so I made me a chicken salad today to let him have more of the noodle dish

so tonight while watching "Rebel Without a Cause" with James Dean and Natalie Wood, I'll have chicken salad and cole slaw and dh will have some chicken and noodles and a buttered roll. We already had some chocolate bread pudding with whipped cream but dh usually has a dish of ice cream just before bed..

Tamale pie is a favorite of mine. How do you make yours?
