Dawg, you've mentioned those United Way "take and bake" fundraisers several times. What a wonderful idea, and their meals sound delicious. I wish we had something like that here! It's a "win win" deal for everyone!

They are good, Kay! DH's jobsite employs a few midwest farm ladies in the kitchen, and they don't skimp on the butter or cheese! Each meal comes with explicit cooking instructions, and though the meals are supposed to serve four, they usually last us for six or more meals apiece. Not a bad deal for $20, and a good charity.

I'm wishing we had a fundraiser like that about now. Power's been out for two days (windstorm) and we're hearing it will be 2-3 days before it's restored. Beans and weenies tonight. ..beef smokies and a jar of our bbq horticultural beans.

So sorry to hear that, Bookbrat. Hope you can stay warm, and that your power gets restored soon.

I've been meaning to ask about your United Way dinners too, Dawg. Like Kay said, it's a win-win, and they always sound so good.

Thanks Cheryl. They put together a monthly meal, usually with a side and dessert. Last month was meatloaf. The portions are very generous, and these farm ladies know how to cook! They put everything together, and then I just have to bake it. Not an issue.

I turned Monday's pork loin into hot pork sandwiches tonight, with a generous pile of little green trees (broccoli, in case you didn't guess ). Himself had some of the sauerkraut and pickled beets, while I finished up the roasted beets from last week.

Italian inspired chicken stew - boneless chicken thighs, tomatoes, onions, and some anchovies thrown in to give it an unidentifiable added flavor. Served over basmati rice with broc on the side. Made an extra big batch, as it reheats quite well.

Stuffed acorn squash with a SW/Mexican mixture of chorizo, chicken, pablano, red bell, onion, garlic, black beans and corn. Cumin, chili powder, oregano, some adobo from a can of chipotle and S&P for seasonings. Some Oaxaca cheese to top.
