What I want to have and what I will have are two different thing

What I want is sushi and a lot of it. What I will have is leftover Chinese if there is any left when I get home.

I think we'll be having a large lunch at a restaurant today, so probably just soup, curry, chili -- something like that from the freezer for dinner. But who knows? We're picking a freind up at the airport, then having lunch. I'm reading to my shut-in friends in the afternoon.

Who knows it's only 9:30 in the morning here.
I didn't even eat breakfast yet, let alone think
about what to make for dinner.
What ARE we going to have for dinner ? lol

Oh, maybe pork chops or something.

I'm in the same boat as middie. I just finished my coffee. I have no earthly idea about dinner, although, I do have some pinto beans, a ham bone with a little bit of ham left on it, hmmmm.....maybe that and some cornbread?

oohh its sooo easy its just like doing a stew,in a big pot,
i brown the sausages first with a little garlic,then throw in shallots, mushrooms,carrots,peas,new potatoes,mixed peppers, 1 tin of chopped tomatoes, lots of fresh herbs, red wine, a knob of butter, a stock cube made with 1 pint of water, a little flour to thicken it if needed

once the sausage is browning i just throw the rest of it all in together, no fuss,
then i put it in the oven on a low heat & let it cook all day
very simple, fast & gives me time to do other things during the day:)

I'm with GB sushi sounds GREAT but... we'll be having something else instead.

What that something is... I couldn't tell you yet. It's way too early to think about dinner. :)

Ok.. dinner tonight will be stuffed peppers using this recipe.
I'm using red peppers instead of green.

Stuffed Peppers with Ground Beef and Rice
  • 6 green bell peppers
  • 1 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon dried leaf oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf basil
  • 2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper, divided
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef or chuck
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked long-grain rice


Cut tops off of the peppers; remove seeds. Dice around the step of peppers and set aside. Place peppers in a large potand then cover with salted water.





Then boil and reduce the heat. Put a lid on the pan and simmer for 5 minutes. Drain peppers and set aside.
Heat olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat until hot. Sauté chopped green pepper (from tops), diced onion, and diced celery and diced garlic for about 5 minutes, or until vegetables are soft. Add tomatoes and tomato sauce, ,oregano, basil, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Simmer for about 10 minutes.
In a bowl, combine egg with remaining 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and Worcestershire sauce. Gently stir to blend; add ground beef, cooked rice, and 1 cup of the tomato mixture. Mix well. Stuff peppers with meat mixture and place in a 3-quart baking dish. Pour remaining tomato mixture over the stuffed peppers. Bake at 350° for 55 to 65 minutes.

I'm not sure what I had for dinner last year, but we probably ate out. Just teasing you Luvs! Half the time I start to write 1976 on checks, and I have no clue why!

I took a roast out of the freezer last night for tonight, but it looks like I will be fixing that tomorrow instead. It is our 3rd anniversary, and James has decided to take me out for dinner. He asked me where I want to go, but I told him he gets to pick. When he asked why, I told him, "Because I love you and it's your turn. And it's your anniversary too!" lol

Chicken tonight..Dh and the kids love this and have asked for it today..Boy am I glad it's a quickie Just use a large cut up frying chicken, season with salt and pepper, and make one layer in a shallow roasting pan. Brush chicken with melted butter and re-season if you like or just layer and brush with butter and then season/ you can now sprinkle with garlic powder, I like to put in chrushed fresh garlic and some sauteed green onions or leeks, Add some chicken stock and bake covered for about 1-1/2 hrs. Just before serving add butter to the stock and stir well Serve right in the roasting pan with lots of hot french bread to soak up the juices.We add a green salad and either a veggie or some mashed potatoes. dessert will be toffee bars and ice cream.
