What's for dinner? Wednesday, 1-20-16

Tyler will be here for an afternoon dinner with me before basketball practice, so I'm making his faves. Roast chicken, mashed potatoes, and steamed broccoli and carrots.

What's on everyone's plate today?

Pizza tonight. Don't have a lot of pepperoni so I'll do a combination of that and genoa salami with some onion.

I did a buffet for my brother's birthday. Made far too much (portion wise) so in the next few days I will be eating leftovers of:-

- devils on horseback (with mango chutney inside the prunes)
- chorizo in red wine (tapas) - recipe (chorizo still a little tough despite low heat)
- home made harissa dip (with greek yogurt, creme fraiche and may) - my own concoction
- roasted red pepper salad with a sun dried tomato dressing (recipe)
- red cabbage salad, with grapes, walnuts, raisins, apples, celery. Dressing of apple juice, greek yogurt and mayo (served on the side) - a great recipe
- A few savoury scones (freshly made) halved and topped with creme fraiche, smoked salmon and some dill

- Half a deluxe fruit trifle - bakewell sponge base (bought and dried out then drenched in orange cointreau), then diced fresh mangoes, pineapple and banana. Over this was vanilla custard and topped with light whipped cream sprinkled over with pomegranates and pistachio nuts (for colour contrast). My own idea.

What a wonderful spread you made Creative. I especially like the sound of this...

Dinner with Tyler sounds like a happy time. So glad he's not a junk food kid!

I'm tired of cooking......maybe take out tonight.

Thinking chicken with something. Will be watching this thread for inspiration. DH is not happy with leftovers. Though I'd bet he would love creative's leftovers!

A pork chop, broccoli and a salad.

An AB, one pork chop, version of this recipe with the sauce drizzled on the broccoli.

Can't find my chicken breast. I know it's in the freezer somewhere. I have big plans for it.
