Question TGIF dinner tonight? 1/20

Dinner for us tonight will be leftovers from the Mac/Cheese last night and the rest of the bits and bobs from the last few days. Gotta make room for other stuff in the frig after all.

Happy day to you..........
PS>.........anyone know if KitchenElf still posts? I haven't seen her, PM'd her and not heard.

That certainly would be an appealing thing for a condo. Alas, we have no such thing nearby so I will cook something - unknown at the present!!!!

We're doing our Mexican night tonight. Likely that will mean tacos. I have the ground beef thawing in the fridge right now. I am going to be tired after work though so hopefully it will be minimal effort on my part.

What do you put in the seafood pinwheels? Cream cheese and crab? They sound good.

I have not completely decided what I want to have for dinner. On Fridays the bakery in town makes jalapeno cheese bread and I picked up a loaf after work. So, I am sure dinner will include a slice or two of it. Cheese bread is especially good toasted. I might just try to eat up some of the leftovers in the fridge.

Here is the list of leftovers:

red beans, sausage, and rice
baked beans
coleslaw
mac and cheese
caesar salad
applesauce
cornbread muffins

Come on over, TG. Jalapeno cheese bread is also one of my favorite breads. The bakery is within walking distance of my house. Just one block away. It just opened in July and has been doing a great business.

We'll be having two kinds of tamales- pork & red chile and chicken, green chile & cheese. Gonna throw some pinto beans in the pressure cooker too. More kahlua mousse pie for dessert.

One of the ladies here in town makes that best jalapeno cheese tamales. Every once in awhile I order a couple of dozen from her. They are my favorite kind of tamale.

i made a small pot of a simplified version of my shiitake, beef, and white bean stew, but i never got to eat it. by the time it was done, i had to leave for work. so i'll probably run out for sushi, after reading tg's post about sushi dips.
the tapeworm in my stomach is craving sushi again...

sure does andy. i posted it here: http://www.discusscooking.com/forums...tew-17225.html

last night, i only had a pound of (floured/seasoned) chuck cubes and no wine, so i only used 2 cups of rehydrated great northern beans, 2 cans of beef stock, 1 medium onion diced, 1 small stalk of celery diced, 2 cups of halved baby carrots, 1 cup of rehydrated shiitakes and it's liquid, 2 minced cloves of garlic, 1/2 stick of butter, 1 tbsp of canola oil, 1 cup of water, and some bay and sage leaves.

the procedure was pretty much the same, tho.
