ooooooooooooh, ah, and, oh, um, stuff grapeleaves too please please please

There's no way I can top last nights dinner so I'm not even gonna to try.

It'll be tenderized beef patties [as normally used for Chix fried steak] that I have in the freezer. I bought a box of button white shrooms yesterday that I'll use along with this recipezaar for cubed steak
Mom will be here and I want something she can't get at her Assisted Living residence. She loves salad so I'll do a special one for her. Her mother was head pastry chef at a prominent Universary and she often speaks of missing her parents cooking so cloud biscuits I'll serve too. Hope lots of gravy is made by the meat baking.
Dessert will be the Gingerbread cake from last night along with the sauce. It was sinful

1 small onion, greated or chopped into very small pieces
1 tsp salt or more to taste
1/2 tsp pepper


Directions:
mix all ingredients together

Sounds good. My recipe for Greek meatballs includes cinnamon, which gives it a warm, exotic flavor. Also, I bake them rather than fry - much less labor-intensive

I have some fresh ravioli in the fridge, so will serve that with Newman's Own spaghetti sauce with pesto added, a green salad, and garlic bread.

I'm trying a recipe I found online even though it's probably a heart attack on a plate--chicken breasts stuffed with sausage, then wrapped in bacon. Usually I figure out side dishes once I start cooking, so I haven't really thought much about it yet (but I have a few hours).

I have a ham steak marinating in some pinapple juice, brown sugar, and a healthy splash of rum. I'll grill that and serve it with homemade mac and cheese, and steamed broccoli tossed with browned butter and garlic.

Wintry and cold today. A good day for soup, so we're having French Market Soup. Perfect for a day like today. I didn't have any chilies so I added a can of tomatoes with green chilies instead of a plain can of diced tomatoes. Yum. I also didn't have a ham hock but I did have a big chunk of salt pork. Sliced that up and browned it before adding to the soup ingredients. Tasted it earlier. Yep, it's a keeper in this form.

last night I took the remains of the sauce from the weekend's ossobuco and added ground beef and made a killer bolognese. Certainly had tomato in it, and carrot and fennel and wine and herbs etc, but was truly a meat sauce.
