What's for dinner? Wednesday, 1-27-16

I pulled a couple of slices of meatloaf from the freezer and made a small red potato salad. Will be having that, and either some sautéed fresh green beans, or a salad - not sure which yet.

What are you having?

More roasted turkey and some freshly made raw broccoli salad with BACON, among other ingredients.

I tried out a Turkish lamb recipe with flatbread (harissa lahmacun).

Basically spiced up lamb mince baked on flatbread. Disappointingly bland!
I ate it with mango chutney that had chopped parsley and celery leaves mixed into it (the best part really!)

I have a pot of Stuffed Cabbage in the oven right now.
This is another dish that I have never made before.
I really disliked the way my Mother made it when I was
a kid, ACK! It was so grossly over cooked, so I'm trying
it with a little from this recipe and a little from a few others.
We'll see how it comes out.
I like the numbers on this recipe:
Nutrition Facts
Amount Per Serving (each roll)
calories 77
Total Fat 3g
Saturated Fat 1g
Monounsaturated Fat 0 g
Polyunsaturated Fat 0 g
Trans Fat 0 g
Cholesterol 19 mg
Sodium 173 mg
Potassium 199 mg
Total Carbohydrate 6 g

TB had roasted chicken legs with potatoes, onions and carrots, and a fresh Greek salad.

I had a few of the roasted veggies and some of the salad without the dressing (I know, I am strange). I am still working on my protein shake from breakfast.

I sure like those numbers too Kgirl! Please post the recipe when you get to it.

I'm doing a beer butt chicken tonight, some roasted red spuds for the SC
and salads for both of us. We don't like breast meat much, but it's fabulous for making chicken salad tomorrow. I'll post the recipe we made up for chicken breast salad.

DH is going out for wings with his boyfriends, so I'll probably heat up some of the meatless pot roast (see yesterday's dinner disaster). I might roast and add more carrots, those seem to have disappeared from the original batch.

After grocery shopping yesterday, it was apparent we needed to rid the refrigerator of UFOs (unidentified food objects), so tonight's evening offerings included an assortment of edible leftovers that, given a day or two more, would have become science projects.

Bit of a smorgasbord of dishes, but all good and now...all gone. What we didn't finish Harley and Baxter (our granddog) slurped up as if they were eating at a palace. Best garbage disposals in the world.

Rather than putting the rice in the cabbage roll filling,
I put it on the side for DH, not moi.
A side salad completed our repast...
all though, DH did not care for the cabbage rolls very much
I thought it very tasty, nice and sweet cabbage and I used crushed
San Maranzo tomatoes on top.
Oh well, there's lunch for me tomorrow,
hmmm,
I wonder what HE'LL be having

K, I'll post up the recipe later in a separate thread,
honestly, it was delicious, he's just a weirdo!

Tonight I took some cooked rotini added some browned, drained ground beef, some sauted veggies, a little olive oil and mixed together. Topped with some fresh graded parmesan cheese.

We made stuffed cabbage last night so we could have it for dinner tonight.

Ours is different than yours but still stuffed cabbage.

My writing group has a weekly happy hour gathering, so since DH is out of town, I went there for dinner. Tonight it was held at a Mexican restaurant; I had fish tacos. They were quite good, with a tasty seasoning on the fish.

KGirl, they look marvelous and I see you posted the recipe. I have never been able to replicate my mother's so I will see how this one goes!
