I love Lasagna! Just call me Garfield

I'm making crumbed hake with oven baked chips and some of my ginger and lime dipping sauce and tossed baby greens.

I reserved a little hamburger from the taco meat last night. I think I'll turn that into a pan fried meatloaf patty with mushroom gravy and mashed potatoes. When I pick up the shrooms I'll look for something green to go along. The broccoli looked horrible yesterday and I've had a taste for broccoli. I *think* they get their produce on Wednesday.

Oh yum! Proper comfort food and I love, love, love mushrooms
I eat them raw and cooked, usually have to buy 2 punnets. One to eat while I'm chopping the other

I love white shrooms raw, which is why I usually buy crimini. Otherwise it would be one for the cutting board, one for the cook

I picked up two beautiful thick ribeye steaks I plan to grill. Not sure what to have with it, probably just salad. Who needs a lot extra when you have a wonderful cut of meat!

(These words coming from a former vegetarian )

I'm sorry, but I don't agree... You will most definitely need some garlic bread to sop up the steak juice

Actually you are so right, Pac! While the steaks were grilling, TB took the bread I was about to use for his sandwiches and turns it into garlic bread. I made salad and sliced up some avacado - was an awesome feast.

I am quite sure I can work off the steak getting to your place, Dave. So save me some - an extra helping of potatoes please!

Yesterday you said -- "I'm starting to fully appreciate that7 quart mixer and my Hearthkit oven insert. "

I wasn't familiar with a Hearthkit oven insert, so I looked it up briefly. It's like a pizza stone / converts your oven to a brick oven.

Your results look terrific and the bread has a nice crispy look. Pretty swell.

Some of that good bread would go good with my leftover beef stew for dinner tonight right about now.

My Hearthkit is one of my most prized baking possessions but I do not think they are being made anymore. I wasn't too crazy about spending what I think was $139 for it but if I had to replace it (G-d forbid) I'd be willing to spend upwards of $300.

I am stuck at work waiting for repairmen to show up so it will be a last minute dash for dinner. I think you all talked me into throwing some steaks on the grill. I'll doctor up a bag of coleslaw mix with a vinegar based dressing. I have a stock pile of ramen noodles at home (from the apocalypse pantry) that can be tossed into the coleslaw. That's the plan assuming I don't poop out all together and then it's chinese takeout.

If you make the pan meatloaf thick enough it comes out tasting like baked
