I have some pork defrosting. I'm making pork stir-fry using the terriki create a meal. Which is basically just a bag of vegetables with a sauce packet. I usually get the szechuan, but I'd thought I'd try the Terriki one this week.

Ginger chicken salad was originally the plan, but with this cloudy rainy weather, I may have to go for Chili. I'll see how I feel on the drive home tonight.

Tourtiere and a side of mashed potatoes and gravy. And maybe some baby portabellas sautéed in butter and red wine or perhaps just some peas (or both!).

It's DH's birthday and I am taking him to The Gamekeeper. They also have a Chef's Choice menu that includes wine choices - that might be what we go for.

Wow, that place sounds great! I don’t know where I’d start! I’d probably go with the Elk first! The next visit would definitely be the Ostrich. I wish they had one of those here in my town!

I just threw together a basic baked pasta that I can pop in the oven later today. Nothing fancy, just pasta, browned ground turkey, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and spaghetti sauce. We'll top it w/ some freshly grated parm at the table. It's good comfort food for a dreary day.

I have my fingers crossed that we are going out to dinner. This is our first weekend home in a long while. If I am cooking it won't be much!

It's pretty easy, LEFSE and is out of one of Mabel Hoffman's books. It only involves a layer of ground beef, chopped onions, plain long-grain rice, corn, chopped green bell pepper, bacon bits, with a sauce of water, tomato sauce, garlic and chili powder. I'm doing this by memory, so not sure if I've remembered all the ingredients.
