What's for Dinner? Thursday 1/14/16?

I am crock potting a beef vegetable soup. To be served with a combo of bread, garlic and butter: croutons maybe?

What's going on in your kitchen?

Pizza margherita and a salad. Had shrimp egg foo yong for lunch, so dinner will be on the lighter side.

I'm planning on some pan fried thick pork chops that have been already brined and frozen. I'll do a Dijon mushroom cream sauce for them, and the SC will have the leftover orzo from last night. We'll both have his glorified green salads.

Have a hankering for red beans and rice, with help from my good friend Zatarain. Have some nice hot sausage in the freezer.

I'm making Sally's Buried Steak (Salisbury Steak). I use a tomato base with green beans and large patties made from meatloaf/meatball mixture.

I got some brats and have them in the oven while the tater tots are cooking. I'll then throw them under the broiler to get a bit crispy outsides. It's nice enough I may fire up the grill. We'll see how ambitious I am at the time.

We had a pork schnitzel over a parsnip/Yukon gold puree with an onion gravy that had grey poop and brandy!

I bought some turkey mince (reduced price) and turned it into a turkey meat loaf with home made harissa, egg, herbs, spelt breadcrumbs and some coconut oil (to soften the lean mince).

I baked it along with some potato cubes (for a patatas bravas recipe that has a tomato sauce cooked separately) and ate it with some lightly cooked brussel sprouts. Nice combo!

I have heard that patatas bravas are better the next day but not sure whether they are then eaten cold (doesn't sound good) so I will try heating them in the oven covered in foil.

He could have named that one a bit better, maybe Grey Poup, but..... he's a little boy at heart.

Cleaning out the (3) containers of leftover soup to make room for tomorrow's groceries. Since I had time on my hands, I made a loaf of beer bread.

Here's the pathetic picture cooking on the stove. It doesn't look like much but it sure tasted good.

What's pathetic about your pic, Kay? Looks yummy to me!

The chops are cooked beautifully, and I adore mushroom gravy!

(I can show you pathetic if I posted a pic of my red beans and rice.) All food porn here is welcome!
