Now I'm getting so many ideas that it will be tough to choose.

I have some braised broccoli and German potato salad that need to be used up. There are also two burgers left from last Tuesday, and 2 chopped steaks left from last Monday. I'm a little leary about those...they're probably OK, but what if they're not?
I may just cook up some salmon patties.

We had meatloaf last night, BBQ chicken the night before, and grilled salmon the night before that, so tonight it's a quick one-bowl vegetarian meal, sort of an Asian-Italian fusion thing from the May 1993 issue of Gourmet Magazine called "Rotelle with Broccoli & Spicy Peanut Sauce," with a nice spicy Gewurztraminer to wash it down.

Along with the meatloaf we'll have sour cream & chive mashed pototes, green beans with potatoes, onions and bacon. Oh and freshly sliced garden tomatoes.
HAVE YOU EVER TRIED MEATLOAF ROLL WITH THE HAM IN THE MIDDLIE AND
CHEESE? I HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT PREVIOUS RECIPES, I REALLY LIKE
THE TOMATOE PASTE ON THE TOP BUT WAS JUST WONDERING IF YOU HAVE
TRIED THE ROLL UP. SOUNDS GOOD

I'm still just feeding myself, so I will eat some more of the acre of risotto I made yesterday. I might fry up an Italian sausage to go with it.

My other option is to flake a can of tuna into some jarred sun-dried tomato Alfredo sauce over pasta.

But I bought a nice fresh pineapple yesterday that I chunked up. I will pour some caramel sauce over a few chunks for dessert tonight.

Hey Rickell! No I haven't. I have a recipe somewhere for a Sicilian Meatloaf that has cheese and prochiutto in the center. It looked so good but I can't find that kind of meat around here. Someday I may run across it again and substitute that type of meat for something else......I know they say use canadian bacon if you can't find prochiutto.

I have to say what I did the other day. Gad I hope I didn't already post it here. I took 2 pks of boneless skinless chix thighs. melted a stick of butter, seasoned them both sides with spog..........baked them uncovered in the oven @ 325 1 hr. in the butter. then, took it out of oven, made a sauce of hot sauce/mango pancake syrup, = parts, mixed in butter and poured over chix and baked for another 15 minutes. Oh my goodness, WONDERFUL~!~ had to share cause who would ever come up with that concoction?

the other night when I wanted the recipe for pork chops, although I basted them, and made the noodles for the mac/cheese, hubby called and said he wanted to meet me at our favo Methican restaurant for margies and dinneau. I froze everything and went. I'm home now, yeah!.........so the mac/cheese is on again tonight as are the pc....spinach cause I'm hungering for greenery and salad, same reason. I have raspberries, so I'll do a viniagarette out of them with evoo and must, s&p.
Enjoy your dinner, whatever it may be.......

I had a bunch of tomatoes from the garden so I roasted them. Yesterday the batch I made came out perfect, today nearly half of them burned. The only thing I did differently was use canolla instead of olive oil. The olive oil version was great, but for some reason the canolla burned quicker. Anyway, I was able to salvage half the roasted tomatoes, but it was more of a paste so I marinated some shrimp and threw them on kabobs and broiled them. They were great! A mistake that turned out fantastic oh and I had that over angel hair pasta with parm and herbs.
