Dinner plans for Tuesday, February 19th?

I'm making good old-fashioned spaghetti & metaballs with garlic bread and extra fresh grated parmesan.

What will you have?

We will be trying out burgers au poivre. Sauteed mushrooms and onions on top. Then I'll drizzle a wine/beef broth sauce over the top. And some spicy tater tots on the side.

Another simple but tasty meal ala DH. Italian Sausages, Peas with pearl onions, what we call pan-fries (thin sliced potatoes sauted in olive oil so they stick together and are crisp on the outside, tender on the inside) and probably one of his inventive salads with my poppyseed or sundried tomato vinaigrette.

Tonight I finally decided on fried pork chops, baked potatoes, asparagus, salad and rolls.

Since I'm using a hot plate til the new cook top is finished, it's going to be soup, paninni's of roast beef, horsey sauce, jack cheese, arugula, and since I DO have an oven, some granny smith's stuffed with a mix of mascarpone,pine nuts, lavender honey. That's it

doing a pizza tonight and another one tomorrow night. Tonights will be home made chevon sausage, whole wheat no knead bread dough, home canned pizza sauce, some sauteed onions, garlic, mozz and parmesan cheeses. Not sure what tommorrows will be, but the plan is to have a lot of leftover pizza for me when DH leaves soon for a back packing trip

Gonna make this tonight. Ol Blue's meatloaf. I've wanted to forever and today, is the day. Oven fries and the rest of the Neeley's coleslaw. DH liked it, isn't going to replace his moms recipe for coleslaw, but still, good and different. Hers is very bland and has been a favorite all these years. Butternut squash with butter/brown sugar/cinnamon/salt and pepper oven baked too.
We may have a praline wannabe for dessert as the DH has asked me to make a batch of the ones I did the other day, the fakko's, so he can take to work and pass around. NTS....better buy more cream today
Bought the cream lots more butter and 10 lbs of sugar. Thanks to all you folks who are forcing me to make sweets. Kidding......
Also just got blueberry whole wheat muffins in the oven, he'll have them with butter.......The peanut butter fudge with the choco chippers is unreal...

Y'all have a wonderful Tuesday................

I had meant to pull leftover chili out of the freezer but didn't realized unilt just now that I'd grabbed a container of beef stroganoff instead. So it looks like it'll be leftover beef stroganoff over rice, steamed broccoli, a basic green salad with balsamic dressing and some homemade applesauce. It's really cold and windy here today so it sounds like a nice comfort-food kind of dinner.

Tonight it was chicken fried steaks, (Paula Deen's) hash brown casserole and corn. For dessert we had some homemade cookies.

We're having spaghetti here, too, Flourgirl. Spaghetti sauce made with browned country-style pork ribs. I'll serve it over some sort of pasta. We have lots in the pantry from which to choose. Green beans, Italian ones if I have them and garlic bread using one of the baguettes I made this morning. No dessert tonight.
