lyndalou - I edited your post to read "toasted" pistachios versus "tasted" pistachios - unless you really did taste teach one, in which case I can change it back.

Change of plans... I can't seem to find the pizza crust. So, we're having tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. Lamb burgers tomorrow!

Sunday is alwasy a bacchanalia here. There are leftovers from Saturday, plus I usually make two or three things on Sunday morning to get my son and I through the week.

Choices for today:

Ditalini with bolognese sauce
Chicken cutlets with broccoli rabe
Beef vegetable soup
Spaghetti with mussles in fra diavlo sauce
Tuna salad

And leftover from last night:

Stuffed mirliton
Creole shrimp with white rice


Bread pudding with whiskey sauce

Personally, I had the tuna on whole grain bread with a bowl of the soup.

I roasted a turkey breast that I brined - it was perfect, tender and moist.

The dinner I planned for last night, but had last minute guest for drinks and never got around to dinner. Lamb done from a Czech recipe ... actually sort of like stroganof (sour cream). Hubby made pasta from scratch, and sauteed leeks as a side dish.

For tonight I made a big casserole of baked Ziti (ziti, ricotta, mozzarella, parmesan, seasoned bread crumbs, + a jar of Barilla pasta sauce.). Served with a mixed green salad. Good, easy, filling, & perfect for an evening of all-day snow/sleet.

Made a saucier of soup. Chicken stock, chicken breast, garlic, shallot, sauvignon blanc, zuchinni, roma tomaters, little semi di melone pasta, baby spinach, black pepper, kosher salt, drizzled with EVOO, and sprinkled with grated pecorino romano. Had a nice hunk of warm baguette I just picked up with it, and a hunk of Hershey's Cacao reserve bar with the cacao nibs.

Our little girl, dug in and was soon covered in cake and smiling from ear to ear..When she had had enough she let me know with a big wet rasberry, so now I too have cake in unexpected places

Kitchenelf, what is "she crab soup" specifically the "she" part because I know what crab soup is.

We had ziti with pasta sauce (red sauce) with steak cooked in the sauce.

Around this neck of the woods, "She-Crab Soup" is made from female Blue-Claw Crabs & specifically includes the roe of the female crabs.

Thanks Breezy, I learned something new. Can one use male crab claws in soups as well or is the female prefered?

Ribbon meatloaf (this meatloaf has a layer of cheese and bread between the meat layers), spinach sauteed in olive oil with garlic, and rice pilaf. The best thing is now I have meatloaf for sandwiches this week.

Absotively... but it's difficult if you have to buy the crabs in a grocery store.
