What's for dinner, Wednesday, Last day of January 2007

Hi all.
What's for dinner?
I won't know until I get home but my plans are one of the many meatloaf recipes I've gathered.

How 'bout you?
Whatcha cookin?

DH picked me up and took me to dinner, so didn't cook.

We just bought a big batch of broccoli, there is half opened package of bechamelle, and leftover grilled chicken breast pieces from yesterday... I think I will wing something like chicken-broccoli fricasse type stuff over rice.

Walnut-stuffed chicken breasts, broccoli and couscous. Haven't decided whether or not we'll have dessert. Too cold here today to think.

I had a spinach lasagne planned but DH had a buisiness lunch, so I'll make some thing lighter. May be some linguine tossed with the spinach, rein in the cheeseyness by just topping with parmesan, bit of nutmeg, bit of EVOO....something along those lines....

Alix decided I should make chicken pot pie. (Thanks Alix - I was really having trouble deciding) I'll make two since there will be a few more mouths to feed. I'll make a salad to go with and some breadsticks - maybe Parmesan/rosemary breadsticks.

Oh, and I'll experiment with a bowl of Parmesan chunks, whole almonds, drizzled with balsamic to snack on.

My son's twin brothers want to come over and watch American Idol on the "big" TV LOL And since their Mom is eating for TWO (I'm gonna be kind of an Aunt!!!!!? - yipppeeeee) and she likes dessert I'll make Alix's Apple Crisp.

Ahh...Vicky. Would you be kind enough to explain this unusual family relationship? It appears you could be your own grandmother. Your son's twin brothers? And their mom, wouldn't that be you? I'm sooooo confused.

LOL - I'm sure I have explained this in the past but with so many new people!~ here goes.

My ex has a very wonderful ex-wife (after me) - she had twin boys, hence my son's twin brothers (we have never used the "half" term). She has since re-married and is expecting a baby. We are one big family (well, except for the mutual ex who just doesn't understand what's important and doesn't even get along with his own brother and sister). Anyway, that's it in a nutshell - does it make sense now?

She used to be wife-in-law, but now they are divorced she is my ex-wife-in-law

We're in a steak mood----Tbones on special at HEB, smashed potatoes, and a cognac gravy recipe that I saw on RRay. OMG-it looked delicious and easy-----tried to go online and find the recipe but I don't know if her show posts its recipes or not. I think that I can wing it, however. However, if you hear about a major kitchen fire in Houston, it's probably us.

See if the gravy/sauce in this recipe is what you are looking for: Recipes : Pepper Crusted Tenderloin with Mushroom Cream and Roast Asparagus : Food Network.

Sounds good.

I'll be making barbecued bacon wrapped shrimp with tomato cous cous and some kind of vegetable, probably corn. Pound cake for dessert.

What's funky pickle pizza?? My head is filled with images of pickles on a pizza, but I might be wrong.
