Rice would be good, and I didn't even think of that. I don't know how you make your rice. I like to make mine into a pilaf. I bake it in the oven with finely chopped carrot, celery, a bit of onion and olive oil. Plain white/brown rice would be tasty too!

Your white potatoes could still be prepared the same way.

I woke up today with the craving(almost to the point of smelling) Pork Roast with sauerkraut and mashed potatoes. Since I don't have one thawed out, I guess I will have to settle with Bacon and Eggs. LOL

Dinner is in and hour and 15 minutes (just Dad and I tonight) and I do not have a clue. Been busy making cake decorations all day and I think the smell of sugar has zapped all my creative brain cells.

May end up just being sausage rolls and salad.

Don't have to follow it precisely, just the cooking method.....
You will have lovely, tender cubed steaks!
I used the first half of the pack of meat and made chicken fried steak, I think what the problem was, the kind I bought was already tenderized and thin, but it should have been tenderized alittle more. Another thing I know is very wrong if you want good steaks do not cook while frozen, and mine were not quite thawed out.

Creamy lemon chicken tonight. It will keep well for Ken who is covering a hostage taking downtown and doesn't know when he will get home. Pray all goes well and everyone gets home safe tonight.

I wasn't going to cook today, but my daughter asked if she could bring a friend home to have dinner with us, so I fixed tacos with all the fixings since I had green salsa and mexican rice leftover from Monday.

nothing wrong with sausage rolls and a salad! In fact, that sounds very tasty! I hope you had a good night!

I actually thought about cereal for breakfast this morning and making eggs/bacon for dinner. I decided on the egg/bacon breakfast. Mark and I have had that many times for dinner.
