What's for dinner, Thursday Dec 22?

Oh man, I'm in for a challenge. I decided to make lasagna, the problem is that I have no range to cook the noodles and sausage and no oven to bake it in (the d*** thing is still kaput.) I have all the ingredients, here's the plan. I have a 2 quart pyrex bowl in the microwave with a quart of water and a lasagna noodle going right now. Testing the waters, pardon the pun. I can easily cook the sausage in a cast iron pan in the fireplace, that problem is solved. After that, I plan on assembling all the ingredients in a 13x9x2 pyrex pan and cooking it on the grill over medium coals. This has disaster written all over it but I think I can pull it off. I may have to take pictures of the process, wish me luck!

Luck is being sent your way.


I have no idea about dinner yet. I'll have to start thinking
about it soon though. Rice with berries and some kind of meat... or sandwiches. Mom and Grandpa will be arriving tomorrow and I'll be cooking up a storm for the next three days... Yeah, sandwiches sound good.

tonight it's me and the boy (take 1 guess what dw is doing?), so after i put him down in his cage for the night, it'll be "use up all of the meat that's about to go bad" night. i think i have turkey sausage, chicken tenders and breasts, bacon, chorizo, and cornish game hens.
i'm thinking either a stir fry, a type of cacciatore or paella, or possibly slme kind of stuffing to go with the roasted hens.

Bucky that sounds like it could be the makings of an interesting variation of jambalaya

Damp I want to see those pictures. That sounds like it could be a lot of fun to attempt. I am sure you are not feeling that way right now though.

I have no idea what I am making tonight. The last few nights I did not cook and just ate whatever was lying around. I think the wife would like a real meal tonight so I have got to start thinking.

The noodles in the microwave are a success! I think you sent the luck at just the right time, Pds! GB, I'll post the pictures even if the project is a failure. The only thing I'm a bit nervous about is cooking the whole shebang on the grill. A quote from "Major League" keeps running through my head:

"H*** of a situation we got here. Two on, two out, your team down a run and you've got the chance to be the hero on national television ... if you don't blow it."

Decisions are sometimes hard to make. I cannot decide what to have for dinner tonight. I have the ingredients to make:

Spaghetti with Italian sausage
Jambalaya
Tacos.

I am leaning towards having the spaghetti. Like Bucky I have two packages of Italian sausage that I need to use up.

Leftovers or sandwiches since I need to pack. We leave early morning to Dallas; a 10 hour trip.
