Wednesday dinner ideas for April 2

Morning, off to work soon so not making dinner but there's plenty from last night so the DH can do the rerun thing.

How about what anyone else is cooking?

I don't kow what I'm having.... soup or something else I cooked in the pressure cooker.
I know it is thawing in the fridge. That is all I know. I guess there's some logic to labeling what you freeze.

Uh oh, is it "I dunno" day again?
I'm thinking either tacos or meatloaf.

Rigatoni with prosciutto and fontina cheese in a bechamel sauce, nice tossed salad. I bought some prosciutto a few days ago but haven't found a nice melon to pair with it, so I will make this dish. I got it from Everyday Italian. We will say it is in honor of Giada's sweet little girl.

I'm making a meatloaf recipe from the January 2008 issue of Gourmet magazine. It has beef, pork, bacon and prunes for some sweetness & moisture, and its topped with more bacon. I'm hoping it will have lots of flavor. I'll make some roasted sweet potatoes and peas to go with it.

Well, DH waited too long yesterday to start the pizza crust dough, so that's in the fridge for later. I guess he might make himself a flatbread tonight - he's on his own I'm off to dinner with friends to a Peruvian restaurant for some ceviche. Can't wait.

Gosh, pizza sounds great but... I think we're having salad and veggies and leftovers.

I've got a partially frozen chicken in the pressure cooker. I just threw in some odd stuff for sure - this mixture of cilantro/ginger/spring onions that I keep frozen, some fresh ginger along with some of the sherry I store it in, the end of some teriyaki sauce, some smashed up cloves of garlic, and some of this balsamic marinade/soy sauce stuff I buy that is fabulous! I know, I know - but it just can't be too bad, can it? I did add some water because it just needed more liquid.

I guess I'll just have a big ol' salad with it and some edemamme.

My new fridge may be on its way, so I'm trying to make some more space -- cook up the cornish hens in the slow cooker... maybe cook up some frozen (Omaha Steaks) kebabs & rice, finish up the cheesecake, & eat up all the veggies. In short, not sure yet what's going to turn up on my table tonight. It may be a melange of ingreds/dishes

Fresh asparagus - I love asparagus

if I put a 1/2 cup of hot sauce in anything no matter how huge the quantity was, I'd be dead in 13 seconds flat whoo you must have a strong tongue/inside of mouth

That pasta sounds delish!! I may have to try it this weekend. I could make a meal out of that and a salad.
