What's for dinner, Tuesday, Jan. 24th?

The weather's cold, cloudy, and scattered snow showers. I just started a big ol' mess of pinto beans, with ham, onions, a little garlic, thyme, sage, and bay leaves. I brought home about a quart of pork gelatin Sunday from work (we roasted some pork loins), skimmed the fat off, and added that to the pot. It ought to be great with the cornbread I'm going to make later tonight.

I'm going to attempt to make kadesma's Yorkshire pork chops, mac and cheese, and mashed potatoes. Maybe I'll try middie's weird combo of mac and cheese with the applesauce.

Very, very windy in our part of Los Angeles. I just put on a pot of pinto beans and seasoned the meat for carne asada tonight. I'll make a green salad and warm some tortillas. And, make lots of orange juice from all the oranges the wind is knocking to the ground.

I'm making a Indonesian soto soup with chicken, lemongrass, galangal, ginger and bean sprouts. When serving I usually add a cooked egg, small pieces potato, crispy fried onions, white rice, green onions and a dressing made from tamarind, chilli and sweet soy sauce. It is a very traditional dish, but I always make it up as I go, to the horror of my Indonesian mother in law, haha "nooo, no lemon grass....."

I hear what you're saying jbib.....
very windy here in the high desert also. I must go outside and make sure my Siberian Huskys are still in the back yard! Oh and toss me some of your extra oranges please > I finished the last of my mom's 3 yesterday. I'll trade you for her Myer lemons.

I've just finished watching "Floyd on the Med".
http://www.keithfloyd.co.uk/intro.html

So, it'll be browned chicken pieces in o/o, chick peas, cinnamon stick, tomato paste, garlic, onion, lemon juice, cumin, chicken stock, oregano and Paula Deen's house seasoning. Spinach and olive coucous. The last of my tomatoes from the back yard with mozzarella cheese balls (forget what they're called) drizzled in o/o and b/v. Hope DH likes it, as it'll be some work, plus I already know he isn't fond of garbanzo beans but maybe in this dish, he won't notice they're there.

Cannelloni with ricotta and spinach filling... I haven't made fresh pasta for a while, underestimated the time that takes and now I don't have any time to prepare anything else before I head for the gym... well this is a substantial dish, our cannelloni, we will just have some cheese and fruit to nibble on with it...

It's a toss up between chicken fajitas and
lentil soup. It's still too early to decide.

We are going to heat up some of those premade Chicken Cordon Blu, pasta with garlic and parm, broccoli w/ seasoned salt. If I get home early enough I would like to make some fresh beer bread.

We decided on soup.
It's a soup kind of day.
