Garlic-roasted whole chicken (in the crockpot), oven-roasted potato wedges, Italian green beans and homemade chocolate chip brownies. Cold as crap here, so a big, warm dinner is what we need. The house is beginning to smell really good.

We had a traditional English fish pie, made with smoked haddock and cod, cooked in a white sauce with celery, carrot and onion, topped with mashed potato. It was good!

Oh and this morning I made croissants, which I have never done before, but the fiance wanted me to give them a try...

And I made wholegrain rolls for our lunches during the week!

So by my calculation I have done enough cooking for at least two discuss cooking members who couldn't be bothered today!!!

cooked a vegetarian meal & didn't see 'till i 'twas plating my food.
grilled what 'twas left of a portabello brushed with oliveoil & seasoned with seasalt/black pepper/garlic/sage, brushed with worcestershire post-grilling, then decided to grill these baby yellow plum tomatoes (drizzled those with balsamic vinegar), then was like, 'oh, yeah, got stewed tomatoes cooking already. ****'.
my meal lacked color, so i cooked haricot verts & sauteed with butter, seasoned with lemon. bias sliced my portabello, looked like steak.

my other dinner-
jake requested tacos later after work, so i'll get those prepared 'bout 11:30. probably oughta slice & dice soon.

I am having left over Morocoan chicken with prunes over quinoa.
I have never cooked with prunes before but it really turned out well.

And tonight I want to cook my huge pot roast (which I posted about).

(I cook BIG meals on the weekend so I can freeze a bunch of individual meals.)

Probably something very simple tonight. Lentil soup and rice. They go well together and the meal is very tasty and filling!

Vegetable risotto (bell pepper, mushrooms, onion, zuccini, asparagus, cooked in white wine & veggie stock) very very tasty!!

Also marinated some Quorn Fillets and shallow fried them.

I've got "Chicken Parisienne" finishing up in the oven right now. Basically, bone-in skin-on chicken breasts cooked in a mixture of condensed Cream of Mushroom soup, fresh sauteed button mushrooms, & dry sherry. When the chicken is done, the sauce is then finished off with a goodly amount of sour cream. Will be serving it with plain white rice (to soak up all that great sauce), & plain buttered baby carrots.

Ok, the pot roast is done, gravy is made, and faux Cheddar Bay biscuits are done, and everyone is busy shovelling it into their mouths.

*AllenOK drops to his knees and thanks God for Pot Roast.

PeppA, my other half, just told me it is the best pot roast she's ever had.
