What's cooking? 02/01/11 Tuesday

I'm going to make a "soft" meatloaf for dinner, easy to chew.

I've got the biscuit crust (1/2" thick) left from the quiche, so I'll use that as my filler.

Italian Salad Dressing Mix for my seasoning.

I took the last bean soup out of the freezer. I drew a star on the lid, which means it was exceptionally good, so I'll have that for lunch.

Breakfast is the squash soup from yesterday. Pretty good, I must say.

What are you cooking today?

got some cinnamon rolls rising right now. I am thinking a miso soup for breakfast and as for later tonight. I have finally been given an authentic peanut sauce recipe so I am thinking some sesame tofu with peanut sauce over top of white rice for dinner.

One of my favorites is cooking, but actually tonight is a night out with the Stocker's Club (club for those who are fixing up old cars and trucks). We will have the BBQ pork tomorrow, but since I am home today I am making it today. I am home because I work for a school district, and I have the day off because of bad weather. It is up to ten below now at 10:00 a.m. Here is what's cooking here;


Barbeque Pork on Buns

2 pound boneless pork loin
1 onion, chopped
3/4 cup cola carbonated beverage
3/4 cup barbecue sauce
8 sandwich buns
Combine all ingredients except buns in a 4-quart slow-cooker; cook, covered, on high for 5-6 hours, until very tender. Drain and slice or shred pork; serve on buns with additional barbecue sauce, if desidered.
Serves 8
Tip: Pork can be made 1-2 days ahead; refrigerate covered and reheat before serving.

I roasted a chicken last night. This morning I cut the meat off and have the carcass stocking. Will be making chicken-chipotle soup this afternoon.

I took a vacation day to avoid the icy roads. I slept until noon, plan to do laundry and watching Frank make his soup. It smells great!

I have no idea. Don't know if DH is working tonight or not, Dad isn't feeling all that well and I am on a very restricted no dairy, soft/bland food diet due to stomach problems.

Maybe poached eggs - toast for me, sausages for Dad and both for DH if his is here.

But this is subject to change!

Pizza from a dough recipe suggested by Bethzaring, topped with parmigiano, locatelli, oregano, crushed red pepper, sun dried tomatoes, basil, anchovies (on my side of the pie) and mozzarella.

i have left over tuna casserole and left over wings. so it is a toss up. do you think i could freeze the tuna casserole? i would really like to freeze it as i am getting tired of it. the sweet potato fries may do a repeat performance if i have the wings. they were really good, even if came in a bag. cookies for dessert.
