Monday, 1/10/2011, What's cooking?
 
I have Beef, Bean and Cheese Enchiladas, Mexican Rice and avacado planned. But one never knows what the day will bring! LOL

Any plans?

That sounds good, maybe later this week!

I'm in the mood to make some sandwich rolls from scratch and have some ground beef out so it's probably burgers again. Maybe I'll spice them up with some BBQ sauce in the mix or something...

Thank you.

I had a chili dog for breakfast. LOL That chili tastes better today.

We're having white beans and ham hocks, cornmeal pan rolls, tea, and fresh coconut cake with pineapple custard filling.

Hey there Katie!!

Ok I need details and a recipe for the cornmeal pan rolls (sounds like they may go nicely with my dinner tonight) and the coconut cake (I love coconut!!). Pretty Please

The cake is awesome and the only thing I did differently (because I didn't have any whipped topping) was to use sweetened whipped cream for the icing part. It's a Southern Living magazine recipe.

As for the rolls, they are great with a more hearty meal and I made them, except for forming them and the second rise, in my bread machine. They come from Taste of Home magazine. You can find them here.

Enjoy!!!!

Thank you on my way to check them out.

If I don't have the ingredients I can always make a Black Devil's Food Cake topped with whipped cream and coconut!! :chef:

I have pizza sauce left over from the holidays and need to use it up. It has already been frozen once so don't want to put it back in the freezer. Therefore, the pizza dough is rising in the fridge right now. Will add some bacon that's left over and pepperoni to the sausage and ground beef in the sauce. Top with Swiss, cheddar and Asiago cheese. Since DS is home for the week and DH is teaching tonight I can make both of them happy since the pizza warms up well.

AnnieDrews 01-10-2011 12:38 PM

Made a pot of potato soup last night so it would be available when my boys get home today from their Dad's. My younger son asked me to make it again! Going to have it with french bread and fruit salad (peaches, pears, grapes...maybe banana). Then offer them banana cake for desert. I made the cake this weekend for the first time and it is delicious. I need the boys to eat it so I won't be tempted by it all week....:rolleyes: I could eat the cream cheese frosting with a spoon.:pig:

Kayelle 01-10-2011 12:45 PM

When I was browning up all the pork cubes for my chili verde last night I saw that I had way too much pork, so I took out about three cups of meat to do something else with it today.

I have some ideas rolling around about what to do with it today involving red and yellow bell peppers, onions, and fresh cranberries from the freezer.

Chapter 2 to follow later in the day.:wink:


I'm so craving desert, and I'm such a lousy baker I'll have to figure something out.

cookingfan7 01-10-2011 12:46 PM

I will make ground beef with sweet potatoes and apples today.

PrincessFiona60 01-10-2011 01:11 PM

I'll be cooking up taco meat today for the rest of the week. Tonight will be salmon, rice and aspargus.

Sounds delicious. What a great way to use up leftovers.:chef:

Kathleen 01-10-2011 07:17 PM

o/~ Kentucky Fried Chicken! They do it right! o/~

It's sausage-making night, so we had KFC with coleslaw, biscuits w/ honey, and whatever it is that they call mashed taters. I really do like their coleslaw and biscuits. Plus, it was a very quick meal with very little clean-up!

As far as our food-crafts tonight, we have made 82 breakfast sausage links. Next is kielbasa. Mmmm. My first recipe post was for kielbasa and sauerkraut made in the crock-pot....to be coming on a "What's Cooking" thread soon! :chef:

I don't have that problem....EVER!:wink:

Kathleen-KFC really does have good slaw and biscuits.

Alix 01-10-2011 09:29 PM

I roasted a teeny little chicken and smashed potatoes. We had a big green salad and I sauteed some onions, celery, shredded cabbage and some mushrooms in some of the chicken grease. YUM.

taxlady 01-10-2011 09:40 PM

The biksemad (Danish hash) that DH made was yummy.

babetoo 01-10-2011 10:07 PM

ended up with pigs in blanket.

msmofet 01-10-2011 10:08 PM

I love KFC mashed and gravy and biscuits!!

Dinner was Beef, bean and cheese enchiladas, Mexican rice and guacamole (avocado, red onion, tomato, lime, salt and ground peppercorns) on a bed of baby spinach and tomato slices.

Here's the update.......chapter 2
I browned up a big sliced white onion, and added the pork cubes and half a bag of fresh whole cranberries, some soy sauce, honey and ground ginger, and some chicken broth. Simmered it to get the pork cubes tender, and added slices of red and yellow bell pepper. I served it over Jasmine rice, and had a big green salad. I will sure make this again!! DH loved it.
Didn't get around to making a desert. Just as well.:rolleyes:

Kathleen and Annie.....I also really like KFC's coleslaw!! I have a recipe that tastes exactly like it. And I do mean exactly. Let me know if you want it, and I'll post it tomorrow.:wink:

merstar 01-10-2011 11:14 PM

Black bean quesadillas with sauteed garlic, onions, red bell pepper, and mushrooms, salsa, spices, lime juice and extra sharp cheddar.

mrs.mom 01-10-2011 11:33 PM

Today I'm making mashed potatoes with gravy sauce, roast chicken and maybe some white rice. My kids love mashed potatoes. They could never have enough of it. I usually like to roast the chicken in an oven bag. Easy way and turns out great. It also gives a lot of juice which I use to make the gravy.

PattY1 01-11-2011 12:53 AM

It looks YUMMY MsM.

DaveSoMD 01-11-2011 06:20 AM

I made a chicken and snow pea stir fry and used a sauce recipe for kung pao chicken.
