What's for dinner - Tuesday January 13, 2015?

I bet you already ate, so let's read about it.

I heated up leftover Salisbury steak and gravy and cooked a red potato and hand mashed. Marinated left over Brussels sprouts in garlicky Dijon vinaigrette.

We have a lot of leftovers, but I had a hankering for steel cut oatmeal with maple syrup and raisins, so I cooked some up in my little rice cooker.

We had turkey crepes with tarragon/white wine sauce, homemade cranberry sauce, buttered baby peas, iced tea, and the last of the baklava.

Kids and wife ate at my mothers house tonight, I got home late and made a sandwich, my eyes were bigger then my belly, so I didn't finish it, but it was fun to try..
Its just some turkey I processed myself, I bought a farm raised turkey {34 #er}, I deboned and skinned it, brined it, and then shredded the meat, mixed it well to get all the dark and white meats intertwined, add a bit of spices, some binder, and then wrapped it all back up in its own skin, packed it into a few loaf pans I use for doing this, and slow cooked it until it reached 155-160, set it out covered and it crept up enough to be safe.
I then slice and package it in 2 lb containers, I freeze them all and then take one out when the defrosted one is getting low. It comes really good, the flavor is great, I can slice it really thin and it has a dark brown color to the edges from where the skin was when it cooked.
For this sandwich I mixed some turkey that I bought in a grocery bundle, it is altier than mine and adds a bit of flavor, plus I hate for the kids to eat the junky meat, lol...

I normally make a sandwich with my turkey and use some gravy, onions, and mushrooms, but tonight I felt like having something different, I did mayo, banana peppers and tomatoes... It was good but I couldn't finish it, I didnt even eat the banana coco pudding bake I made myself, Ill save that for tomorrow... Oh and of course I made the bread for the sandwich, I did a good batch last night, it was super good as most all bread is...

Nice looking sammie, Cooking4to.

Trying to use up things from the freezer. I found a couple of slices of vacuum packed meatloaf and some mashed Yukon golds from a month or two ago, so tonight's dinner was that and some buttered peas with pearl onions.

Chicken Thighs Marsala here tonight over mashed potatoes and green beans cooked with bacon and onion.

I made a good pot of chili using some of the Spanish style paprike and Penzey's medium hot chili powder which was definitely not flat. LOL

It made a good amount because I add so many things. Lately, I've been adding a can of hot dog chili and a small can of green chilies.

It turned out great, but now I've got to get it finalized and separated for packaging, then find room in the freezer for some of it. My freezer doesn't have a lot of room, so I'm making my menus trying to use the larger things first.

Finalizing just means I reheat it tomorrow, and have some for lunch. The chili powder doesn't show it's full flavor until the next day.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

Zhizara, I do the same but I find the only problem with cooking the larger items first is that because they are larger you inevitably end up with leftovers which have to go in the freezer. It's a vicious circle!!

I have a big leg o' lamb in one of the freezers and a big ham in the other so what I'll do is invite kids and grandkids one weekend when I'm not working and the other set the next weekend.

My eldest granddaughter, Teagan, likes to bake cakes with me so we'll no doubt have a cake for dessert that day.

Lives of great men all remind us we may make our life sublime.
