For dinner tonight I'm making brats in beer. I thinly sliced up an onion and am simmering it in enough beer to cover, until the onion is soft and tender along with some minced garlic, then I'll take out the onions and simmer the brats, turning them until browned all over. When the brats are ready, I'll put the onions back in to warm back up, then put a brat and some of the onions on a piece of toasted, garlicked French bread. I'll probably put a little mustard on it.

I'm also making stuffed zucchini for dinner tomorrow. I've browned some ground sausage and onion with the scooped out portion of the zucchini, to add to a stove top type cornbread stuffing, along with the diced up leftover Mushroom Gratin I made from Laurie's recipe. I'll stuff the zucchini and put it on top of the rest of the sausage stuffing and put it in the fridge to cook tomorrow. I figure the flavors will get a boost from sitting in the fridge overnight, and I'll have a good dinner with no mess to clean up.

Oh how I love apple cake

Hubs loved the meatballs with mushroom gravy and garlic/chive mashed taters!! He's been a pretty happy guy lately since I've been hanging out on here getting help with dinner

We went into the city today for one of Dad's appointments so I had a meatloaf already to go in the oven for when we came home. I was going to do roasted potatoes/carrots/onion but instead we had (at the guys' request) mashed potatoes and creamed corn. Simple supper but good. Just wish I could eat more before my side starts aching again.

Salt and pepper to taste.
Snickerdoodle, Fiona is right on with those directions for perfect gravy without meat drippings, and so much better than jar gravy.......so glad your dinner turned out well.

I'm drooling over everyone's dinner tonight, but then I always do.

Thurs. nite dinner is always late, but a beer butt chicken is about ready to come out of the oven, and I have green salad, and mushroom onion Orzo all ready to serve.

I had cabbage, onion and carrot to use up so it was either coleslaw which the family hates but I love or it was boiled dinner. I made the boiled dinner. My family chowed on it. At least there are no leftovers to use up!

If you ask me how to make Cream of Broccoli Soup, the recipe will look very similar to my gravy recipe...but without the beef bullion or soy sauce!
