Pan fried salmon, corgettes simply sauteed and some diced and roasted potato and a green salad. I'll probably make a honey mustard dressing for the slamon. I usually have rice instead of potato w/ salmon, so will be a change. My only worry is the level of fat in the meal. I hope its not unpleasant, eveything is sauteed or roasted.

I just put corned beef and potatoes in the crock pot. Not sure what else we'll be having with that yet.

Paul requested beef stroganoff so that's what we are having. I think I'll use rice instead of noodles though. Fresh green beans with bacon and onion and salad will be the sides.

Yes, gravy on rice is quite common - I was going to raz you something terrible about never having rice on gravy and ask you how you could possibly have lived in the south this long without ever having that? Then I realized I was thinking "BarbaraL" and you are Barb L -

It's like mashed potatoes and gravy - they go hand-in-hand.

As for dinner - I am absolutely, positively, NOT having BBQ again!!!!!!!!!!! I don't care how much is left!!!!!!! I'll send it back to school with my son when he comes in for his dental appt. I'm SICK of BBQ.

Since I unexpectedly have to work today and I work until 8:00 I will probably just grab something quick out.

The first post in this thread made me think of country fried steak - which is like chicken fried steak, but cooked in the gravy. I think that is what is on the menu for dinner with fresh green beans, or asparagus. Can't decide on the veggie yet, but with garlic mashed potatoes for sure and a salad of sweet onion, cucumbers and tomatoes with herb dressing, and maybe one biscuit each. Fresh peaches for dessert or maybe strawberries.

I've never had gravy on rice. Like brown gravy? The stuff for mashed potatoes? And what exactly is Chicken Fried Steak? I feel like someone is going to laugh at me because I'm in the south, but when I eat out, it's a steak house, not Denny's. That didn't come out right. I meant that steak is the only thing on the menu where I go. I've never been to a southern type restaurant like Shonies or Dennys (all we have near me). Hope that sounds better.

It's the day before pay day. What I'd like to have and what I'll end up with are likely to be two different things.

Sephora - rice on gravy isn't a "Denny's" thing LOL It's common "down-home" cooking. And yes, the gravy ican brown but it is traditionally a milk gravy. Lots of times with chicken fried steak you are served a milk gravy versus brown gravy. CHicken fried steak is cubed steak batter dipped like chicken and fried - hence the name. No questions get laughed at around here!!!!

When you fix your country fried steak in gravy, does the breaded stay on ?? Sounds awful good ! May change my ways tonight !

Yes, the breading stays on just like it does on fried chicken. It's no different. When you bread your cubed steak you put it into maybe 1/2" hot oil/Crisco/vegetable oil - when one side is nice and brown you flip it - it's yummy! Well, I gotta get to work.

In country fried steak the breading isn't as thick as in chicken fried steak. The gravy is different too.

Beef ribs tonight, and a super garlicky caesar salad. Trying to decide if I can stomach another night of potatoes or if I am going to do rice and torture poor Ken.

MicheleMarie wrote this a few days ago...

I am making something my husband's mom made for him when he was little - I cringed when I made them for the first time five years ago ... and now I actually crave them - bbq cups - brown ground beef, drain fat, return to pan and add brown sugar and bbq sauce. Meanwhile, split large biscuits (I use Grands) in half. Place half biscuit in greased muffin tin, fill with beef mixture, top with cheddar cheese, seal top with other half of biscuit - bake according to biscuit directions. DH loves his with cottage cheese, I like mine with xtra cheese.

...and it intrigued me. Sounds wonderful yet oddly weird. Just wonderful enough for me to try it on the man of my dreams tonight. Must get to the market as I have no ground beef. With it, I'll do a salad of avocados, yard toms, yard basil cashews, mozzarella balls and vinaigrette, canned corn, I know it's boring , but I have to eventually clean out that "kitchen store". I was wondering what kind of starch to use but think it's got plenty looking over the menu.
