Great suggestion. I never had green chili before and I've only worked with tomatillas a couple times before.

ooh, lima beans? Maybe that's why I never had butter beans before. I don't like lima beans. At least I didn't used to. I'll pick up a can when I'm in the store.

Okay complexity...Stroganoff Meat loaf, the meat loaf is filled with sour cream, shallots and mushroom, served with a mushroom gravy over buttered egg noodles.
All the things I like in one meal Heck, I haven't had regular beef stroganoff in a while...

Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf Recipe

I use a whole pound of bacon.
I can't tell you how many times I've looked at this recipe, but always fall back on her meatloaf recipe that uses all the cheddar cheese
I will try this someday.

Stew could work. And I've got some carrots and celery that need used up.
I'll make this later on in the week.

All great suggestions, especially the green chili because it's outside my comfort zone. That is on my list of things to make as soon as I research some recipes.
But the winner is... something I've never made before. Something that has a lot of ingredients. Something that a member here has a picture that pops in rotation every now and then and I hunted down her blog just to see what it was and bookmarked it. Something I better get going to the store to pick up everything...

Pac - a hearty veggie soup or beef stew would go great with cornbread.

Edit: Just read the other answers Add some hominy to the green chile stew and you have posole! Yummo!

We're heading out on a neighborhood porch crawl - 6 houses with food and drinks, proceeds to benefit the civic league and the humane society. Should be fun.

It is a quiet Sunday morning and I am doing just one load of laundry. One of the benefits of living alone. I live in nightgowns and housecoats. I am all about comfort. I spent too many years having to get up early in the morning to get dressed up and head out the door for work. I now only get dressed if I have to leave my apartment. It takes me two weeks to build up just one load for the washer. And it is all whites or light colors. I only have three pairs of slacks that I wear that are dark colors.

Yesterday The Pirate stopped by for a couple of hours. He cleaned the kitchen and bathroom from top to bottom. He will be back next week to do the main room. I should have something in the house for him to eat. I need to check the freezer.

Yesterday I went with my daughter to have my hair cut off. And I mean 'cut off'. The last time I had it cut was last August before my daughter had her surgery. So it had grown quite a bit. I have very thick hair and when it grows out, I have enough hair for two people. Once it is down on my neck, I can't stand it. It grows so fast. And the top makes me look like Bozo the Clown. There is so much hair that there is no way I can make it lie flat. Now if I could just make it so that ALL of my hair turns all white instead of the salt and pepper in part of it.

I had gumbo on my mind...
Spanish Paella. I've got two recipes I'll be working from. I'm looking forward to it. A nice one pot meal

I should have seen that because of the saffron. Charge your camera battery.

Good idea. It's in the charger.

Andy, do you think this could be cooked in a CI skillet, or will the CI retain too much heat during the resting period?

Certainly more than a paella pan. You could compensate by turning the heat off a few minutes earlier to compensate.

Instead of a CI skillet, how about a SS sauté pan?
