It appears you feed a large family BT. That must be nice when you order Chinese and can get such a large variety of dishes. I'm single so I usually have to order fewer entrees (usually just myself or myself+guest = 1-2 entrees) or end up with mass quantities of leftovers, and I'm not particularly fond of leftovers.

Looks like steak for me tonight. Nothing special just pan fried ribeye, and roasted potatoes+peppers&onions with that. Or maybe I'll have baked potatoes+peppers&onions with that.

It is the end of the week so tonight will be leftovers. Not sure what's in the fridge but I'll find out soon.

I'm making a pattie melt with swiss, fried onions and saurkraut on grilled rye. I don't think the saurkraut is traditional but it seems reasonable.

You'll recall from the topic that I support the "flip once" school of thought. Cooking in a pan however I've had concerns with my steak getting burned stuck to the pan. It does not help at all that most of my cookware is in storage, including my cast iron skillet, and I'm stuck with using a wok with what appears to be an anodized surface and I have been having trouble cleaning the surface fully. This wok is probably going in the trash or to Goodwill when I get my good stuff back.

Also can't quite make up my mind if I'll use a bit of marinade for a short period. I used some balsamic vinegar, garlic and olive oil last time and thought it was good. (That would be good on bread too!)

You should save your meatloaf for sandwiches! That's IMO the best use of leftover meatloaf. When I've had nut bread I've made meatloaf sandwiches with that, and the flavors might seem contradictory but I liked it.

Of course then you'll have to figure out something else for dinner...

I bought a rotisserie chicken today, and had a leg (drumstick & thigh) when I got home from shopping at 2pm. It was butter and garlic flavored, but too much salt for my high blood pressure.

I don't dare have any more today.

I'm just going to relax with a glass of Merlot and maybe a taste of the Havarti I bought. I'm not really hungry so I'll take advantage of that and skip a meal. I can afford it!

A big lunch with colleagues following a tedious meeting. A nice juicy patty melt with fries and coleslaw. I am so not hungry now.
