What's for Dinner? Tuesday, November 25th

I stopped at a nearby butcher shop over lunch today and they had some beautiful lamb merguez sausages, so we'll have those, along with sauteed spinach finished with harissa oil.

Right before the power went out for 14 hours, I took the leftover yankee pot roast and made a lovely stew. I started by dicing the leftover bake potatoes, panfried those with diced carrot in 2 T of goose fat, added edamame (could use peas), the pureed 'gravy' to which I added 2 tsp of sour cream, a couple of cubes of beef stock from the freezer, some more red wine, and diced up leftover roast. I served it on top of a slice of homemade bread, topped with some grated fresh horseradish, lemon zest, and thyme leaves, S&P.

We're planning on Cuban sandwiches using the leftover roast pork from Sunday. Time to dust off the Griddler.

Oops, this was what I ate last night. That's what losing power does--it is confusing! Don't know if I'm cooking tonight or not! Might just have a salad with the rest of the pot roast...

YUM!! My local grocery store makes the best in-house sausages and they just started making lamb merguez about a month ago. Had never heard of them before so picked up a pack - and now we're hooked!!

I've got some alfredo sauce in the fridge that needs to be used up, so I plan on thawing a batch of homemade pizza dough and making chicken mushroom alfredo pizza. Haven't decided on one big pizza or mini pizzas.

I pressure cooked a pound of pinto beans and made a batch of tortillas. Dinner will incorporate those two items, but not sure how yet.

We're having Caribbean-style oxtails, steamed rice, green beans, iced tea and pineapple/angel food cake. The house is beginning to smell pretty yummy from the oxtails.

Thanks for the reminder. I haven't made jambalaya in a couple of years. I'll have to put it on my winter list.
