What's for dinner? Tuesday, 1-19-16

I really wanted to make macaroni and cheese (thanks to CG for the inspiration ), but I'm out of milk, it's raining, and I don't want to go to the store.

I'm thinking a loaded up salad with lots of crunchy veggies that still need to be used up. Might thaw some shrimp and roast them, and drizzle with a little garlic and lemon butter.

Anyone else as undecided as I am?

A few days ago DH couldn't believe 4 meatloaves were going out the door and not coming back. So I made another one; Paula Dean's BBQ meat loaf. To be served with another recent request; carrot and raisin salad, made with our own carrots.

The plan was roasted chicken breasts with shallots and mushrooms and several veggie sides. But the wind is howling and the escarole that I rinsed off to saute as a side might be made into an escarole and white bean soup instead. Chicken doesn't seem warming enough on a day like this.

Don't you have any evaporated canned milk Cheryl?

I'm loving this rain too and thinking of making some chicken stock. Chicken soup of some kind sure sounds good! Lowrdy how I'd love to do dumplings but that's just too much to ask of my will power.

We have enough leftover Thai from yesterday to feed a small army. I'm snacking on my Crying Tiger beef. Dang, I love their sauce. It's a combo of honey, hot pepper, and something else. Really glad I ordered extra sauce.

Poor DH, made me think of my stepfathers favorite joke. He would always tell it when my mother and her church group were busy fixing food for someone in the community that needed help.

An old man was lying in his death bed upstairs in his home. As he lay there, gasping for each breath, he was sure he could smell freshly-baked chocolate chip cookies. He crawled out of bed and slowly limped down the stairs. Sure enough, across the kitchen, there was a huge platter of chocolate chip cookies on the table. He finally made it to the table and he reached a shaking hand towards the cookies. Suddenly, his wife slapped his hand away and yelled, "DON’T TOUCH THOSE - they’re for the funeral!"

Tonight it is a big salad and a smothered pork chop with sauerkraut.

Aunt Bea!

We have leftover spaghetti sauce, so we'll cook up some more noodles and I'll make salads. It's freezing cold and I wish I had green beans, but I don't. Oh well.

It's freezing here too. I was going to make a pot of chili, but my sons wanted Greek tonight. So dinner is keftedes (Greek meatballs), rice pilaf, tzaziki, sliced tomatoes, and pita bread.

Very basic but enjoyable - just baked potato with caramelised shallots, sun dried tomato and mexican chili cheese - with a salad.

I just wanted to use the oven for roasting red peppers (preparing for a buffet tomorrow) so I baked a potato alongside it. I think I maybe am overcooking the peppers since they reduced down a lot and were a bit slimy when peeled. I thought the idea was to blacken the skin which I did.
