Friday, 2-8-2019, what's on your plate?

Pulled pork (last pack in the freezer) sammies with baked beans and coleslaw.

Our planned dinner was the exact same as medtran49..

After running errands in our freezing weather, we settled on grilled cheese sandwiches and chicken noodle soup..

Will finish off the chocolate cake later..

Hi, we also have some pulled pork in the freezer. Just curious, what are sammies?

I'm trying to decide on what takeout to get. Either diner or Italian.

The diner has had some good specials lately. Last night, they had a fantastic lamb shank braised with carrots, onions, and peas.

But the Italian place has a steak pizzaola dish that I've been wanting to try. Decisions, decisions.


My wife and boy had takeout Chinese before I woke up tonight.

Bucky, I didn't know about "steak pizzaola". Chef John says you need vine ripe fresh tomatoes so I'll be making his version in a few months. Love what I learn here.

I'll be pulling out the last freezer bag of my killer pasta sauce and serving it with Orecchiette pasta. SC's glorified salads on the side.

I made a meat loaf yesterday for planned leftovers, so I'll warm a slice of that for dinner. I made a small red potato salad this morning, so that will be a side.

BT, I personally would go with the Steak Pizzaiola
My SIL taught me how to make it... I haven't made that in the longest time … that may be Sunday Supper with handmade pasta!

Its Friday, so that means we really should have fish ...
and I have had the meanest ONOs (hungry for in Hawaiian slang)
for Fish Sticks and French Fries
I've got Gorton's Crispy Fish Fillets and
TJ's Handsome Fries ready for the oven

We had small chef's salads. Going dancing tonight, so wanted room in the stomach for drinks!

K-L, I looked up Chef John's recipe for pizziaola, and it's spot on with both hot and sweet peppers, and the balsamic vinegar.

Also, that it can be cooked relatively quickly with a more tender cut of beef (my fave) or low and slow with something like a chuck roast.

Family wanted lamb so I made lamb loin chops braised (with lemon, garlic and chicken broth), fresh green bean salad and shells in creamy garlic sauce.

Being a forward thinking person, I got a jump on the day and did take-out pizza for dinner tonight. Meatlover's pizza with a beer. Delicious.

Your pictures look delicious Kgirl. It's new to me, and can't wait for great tomatoes to make it.

That looks delicious, K-girl.

Unfortunately, the Italian joint closed early (I can't figure out how a place stays in business that's only open a few days a week, and closes by 8:30 on a Friday).

I ended up with pork chops Marsala from the diner. Better said it was 2 pork cutlets swimming in brown gravy with a few canned mushrooms. Side o' overcooked pasta. Salad and bread.

Kay, I make mine with Marinara from canned tomatoes and it tastes just fine.
And I use more tender meat such as NY Strip.

Pulled pork must be a "thing" around DC right now. I just picked up brioche rolls from Aldi today to use with freezer pulled pork in the next few days.

Today, however, we shopped Aldi and Lowe's. Dinner was a quick pot of cheesy cauliflower soup.
