I made a lemony potato salad and will have it with a piece wild salmon, sides to be determined closer to dinnertime.

I saw some beautiful stew meat at the store last night, so tonight is Mum's Potted Beef in Gravy with Carrots & Mashed Potatoes.

Do you serve sides with yours? It's the law around here that I crumble up cooked bacon and have cheddar cheese and croutons to go with it.
Usually just serve homemade cornbread with it. I make mine with lots and lots of ham chunks in it. I like the idea of crumbled bacon and cheddar cheese. I'll make a note and do that when I get some split peas.

Baked chicken, ranch rice, california blend veggies. I know it's Ash Wednesday but we don't usually do the fasting today and opt for longer devotionals.

Well, I'm not sure! I had thought to just reheat some turkey soup I defrosted, but now I find a good friend is coming over, so I have to do something better. Thought maybe I would use this space to figure it out.

I have a box of truffle pasta, and a bag of Cremini mushrooms I got at the market last Sat. I could do pasta with a mushroom cream sauce. or I could blanch the rabe I have in the crisper and saute it with the mushrooms and some garlic and make a creamless sauce with some Cognac. A green salad (already have some tarragon mustard vinaigrette in the fridge) and some bread and butter.... apples with Buttermilk Blue cheese for dessert? oops, I have some St. Marcellin that wants to be eaten. That might be better.

Have a bottle of Domaine La Garrigue Cotes du Rhone that would go with the creamless pasta. That'll do!

Thanks for all your help!

Ash Wednesday so our main meal will be tonight, but it will be smaller portions.Large shrimps cooked in butter and wine,garlic,parsley, then spooned over some white rice...and some pineapple with cottage cheese.as our salad.
No dessert given up for lent, but we can have some only on Sundays.
