What's on your plate Thursday12/16/10?

I have a package of 2 thin chuck steaks which I am thinking I will pan fry and finish under broiler with a seasoned crumb mixture. I have 2 choices for veggies and carbs either: choice 1 - broccoli rabe sauteed with oil and garlic and fried potatoes with onions and mushrooms or homemade mac & cheese or choice 2 - baked potatoes and roasted brussels sprouts.

Any plans?

I may try my hand at egg foo yung with sesame noodles tonight if I can get to the store for all the ingredients. Need the bean sprouts and shrimp and green onion. If not, will probably just warm up the leftover chili and make some rice to go with it.

I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

I finished soaking the salt out of some home made corned beef, so we will be having boiled dinner tonight. Yay, there will be corned beef for sandwiches.

I'm just back from my SavALot shopping. I got a nice big fresh ham that I'm bringing was bringing to room temperature to start braising, but it turned out so nice today, I'll put it in the fridge for a really cold day.

I had taken out the other half pound of frozen chicken livers and the frozen leftover country gravy. The leftover fried livers and country gravy were SO GOOD together, I decided to saute the uncooked livers in butter and onion and serve them with the country gravy (white sauce w/S&P & dill).

I still have seasoned collard greens left as a side dish. That should be plenty with a half pound of chicken livers and sauce. Wonder if I'll have leftover livers?

Grandson is here for dinner tonight so were using up some frozen meat sauce over spaghetti for dinner tonight (it's his fav). I made a batch of the chocolate cake-like brownies from another thread for dessert. They're cooling now.

When I went to put away the pork shoulder, it was already room temperature, so I went ahead and started it braising in sherry and water. I'm cooking it low and slow, but still am not planning on it for dinner.

I'm really psyched about the braised in butter chicken livers with country gravy.

However, I do have a question for msmofet. I found a couple of thin chuck steaks for sale. There is a lot of marbling, but looks kind of tough.

How do you make your pan fried/breaded dish? Do you think it will be tender enough? My first thought was to brown both sides and simmer for a couple of hours in pan gravy, but I'm up for ideas.
