Have you posted that recipe? I would love it. I have a small started bottle of kahlua on my counter. I may make a sombrero.

Dinner will likely be a new for us pasta dish. Details later ... maybe. LOL

The current plan is to make a recipe of Luca Lazzari's lasagna. It's a bolognese-style lasagna made without ricotta. I'll post a photo later.

We were supposed to have a grocery delivery today. Since putting away the groceries usually poops us out, we planned to order Italian food for supper. At 10 minutes to six, the grocery store phoned to tell us that they would have to make the delivery tomorrow. I guess there was just too much snow fall today. I hadn't started anything for supper. So, we ordered out anyways. Now, I have to come up with something easy for tomorrow, since the grocery delivery tomorrow will poop us then.

I tend to make a small Meatloaf when making up Meatballs, using the same meat mixture and the covering the mini loaf in Bacon prior to baking that off.
Add some Hungry Jack Instant Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans and I'm stuffed!
I've been trying to get DH to eat Instant Mashed Potatoes for YEARS!
All of a sudden he's okay with them

I couldn't use instant potatoes, K-Girl. Mashing potatoes is my way of working off anger or frustration.

We had breakfast for supper. Himself likes his scrambled eggs much looser than I do and prefers a plain cheese. I pulled his half early, covered in American cheese, and nuked it just enough to melt the cheese. I finished cooking mine to perfection, melting in some sharp cheddar. Two happy tummies!

From my understanding of instant potatoes, if you mix them too much they become pasty. Besides, I always have russet spuds on hand. You can't bake instant potatoes.

Well, if you mix potatoes for too long in a blender, they turn into glue. Ask me how I know.

Heavy errand day w/daughter so, too tired to prep a meal.

Settled for a NY steak in the a/f, sliced and served on a green salad. Also a/f toasted garlic/butter slathered Texas Toast.

Mini cream puffs (looking @ CG) were dessert.

Last night, this thread made me think of a favorite drink I used to make with Kahlua, so I made it - first time in years! I don't remember the name of it, plus it's not the exact thing, but tweaked to my liking. It was originally equal parts of creme de cacao, creme de menthe, and kahlua, with heavy cream added, but I doubled the creme de cacao and kahlua - the mint was too strong in an even amount.

1 oz Kahlua
1 oz dark creme de cacao
1/2 oz clear creme de menthe
1 1/2 oz heavy cream

Shake briefly with ice, and strain. Some friends used to like to leave the ice in, but I thought that diluted it too much.
