What's for Dinner, Thursday Nov. 20th

Well, I have the day off since the truck is in the shop, and I'm trapped like a rat without any wheels (DW has two jobs today and won't be back till mid afternoon).

I pulled out some stew meat from the freezer, so I'm going to make beef stew over wide egg noodles. Since I don't have anything else to do, I think I'll also make the egg noodles from scratch. I haven't done that lately, so it should be fun.

Joe

It's bar food and drink for me tonight! Bowling night. I hope the snow holds off until I get home.

DW and the girl are going out to get their hair done. For the boy and me I think I'll make bread crumb coated chicken cutlets sauteed, french fries, and fried eggs... I had a roommate that told me this was a traditional Spanish dish. Can anyone confirm that?

They turn out hard and fat, no matter how hard I work at them.
But maybe that's the problem. I need a pasta machine that is counter mounted to roll out my dough through, gotta get one,then maybe they'd be edible.
Yep, making mine with the $6.99 Thrift Store pasta machine. Such a deal...

We have the grand kids tonight, so probably cheeseburgers, french fries and green beans. (although I may make small portions of other veggies to try to peak thier interest a bit)

The beef stew and homemade egg noodles with basil came out delicious. Challah bread to sop up the gravy. There was nothing left over, thanks to yours truly.



I'll post the noodle recipe and pics over on the pasta board.

I got surprised! When I came home from work hubby had Cornish hen, mashed taters and some pasta (boxed side dish) ready! It was a nice surprise!
