Dinner Tuesday March 6th
 
We are having leftover pork and chicken that I will make into BBQ sandwiches, w/bacon and provolone cheese,cole slaw and fries.

Flourgirl 03-06-2007 09:17 AM

I haven't cooked dinner for the last 3 days, been feeling under the weather. So today I will make something nice. Especially since DH is a land surveyor and is working outside all day today in a -15 degree wind chill.

Wild mushroom and barley risotto made with chantrelles, procini and crimini mushrooms with shaved parmesan on top, a slow-roasted eye-round done with red wine, tomatoes, carrots, onion and marjoram with crusty bread and pumpkin pie for dessert. Hope he's hungry.

I have some pork chops thawing so I'll season them and coat them in Italian Bread crumbs and make a batch of sage dressing to use up the extra bread I bought yesterday and I think it'll be buttered corn too. Oh and I was watching the cooking station this weekend and I saw a dessert being made in a cast iron skillet so got me thinking and I thought I bet that would work when making an apple pie so thats what I'm going to try today for dessert. I think by cooking it in the skillet and tucking the top crust under it'll give it a really rustic look. Besides I still haven't mastered how to make those fluted edges so this will cover up my downfall when it comes to pies.

so much to do today. just finished planting the flowers in our clay pots outside on the front porch. we lost almost all of our vegetation during all the freezes we experienced. bought a bed set last night for a spare room. new one doesn't fit, too small, the comforter doesn't even cover the entire surface of the top of the bed. isn't it supposed to have a good amount of hangover? Uff da... WHY ON EARTH ARE BEDSPREADS NOT MADE ANY LONGER? now, all you can get for your bed is a comforter and bed floor ruffle skirt thingie. I'll go to Penney's and see what they have. dh is still under the weather, probably won't go to work today either plus barely ate last night. it's gonna be a "dump frig/freezer" day. I was wrong, he did go to work, not feeling like it, but probably his desk is stacking up.

Before I consider cooking yet again, for a sick person [that has no interest in eating] his mood and ailments will be the dictator.

We have some turkey that needs something doing to it and I am feeling like Chinese. I might see what I can do with it. Feeling rather uninspired though. Maybe I'll just put strips in a stirfry, but I would like to have had more fun than that with it.

EDITED TO ADD; I have done a sweet and sour in the end. Not so exciting as I had hoped but DH is very pleased! Also, I seriously over estimated how much to cook. We could feed an army tonight!

I think I'll make some beef stew today if I got all the ingredients.

I feel the same way about bedspreads. When I moved to this house nearly 4 years ago, I had mine made!! My daughter is currently looking for one for her bed - I told her good luck, she may have to bite the bullet and have one made as well.

Barbara 03-06-2007 12:35 PM

Must be pork season! last night I cooked a pork tenderloin. Seared it in my cast iron for a few minutes. Put it on a platter - in cast iron pan I sauteed shallots, onions, mushrooms, cranberries - added white wine, chicken broth & a little honey and cooked down a little. Put the tenderloin back in the pan and stuck the pan in the oven at 375 for about 15 minutes. Served over brown rice & had brussel sprouts with it.

Hi Barb

You know that is sooo correct. My MIL told me many many years ago, that she had ordered having a King bedspread made. I thought she'd lost her mind but nicely agreed with her regarding what she was telling me. Guess what? She had had it made, took weeks but she finally got it. Elderly now, my husband and I have been awarded said bedspread years ago. Colors aren't right and it's been chucked. I am going to look online for a bedspread and see if they're even available. Like I say, with the comforter not even fitting the whole top of the bed, how do you cover the mattress and sheets etc? Uff da...

eatsOats 03-06-2007 01:19 PM

probably will fire up the grill and use up some chicken breast

pdswife 03-06-2007 01:21 PM

Left over lamb and potatoes. They were so good last night!!

Barbara 03-06-2007 01:39 PM

Good luck on line - the trick is probably in the measuring to order one online. Beds are so big now with the thicker mattresses.

bethzaring 03-06-2007 01:40 PM

hmmmmmmm, don't know. Didn't get to dinner last night. Spent all evening and a good part of the night in the barn, had more babies. I hope to get to mess with that leftover sirloin roast tonight, bet DH hopes so too!!

amber 03-06-2007 01:55 PM

Flourgirl, your dinner sounds delicious!

I'm making a pot of chili for dinner. Perfect day for it since it's -15 degrees.

YT2095 03-06-2007 02:04 PM

Pork loin chops in a BBQ sauce with Cheese topping and vegetable savory rice,,,yes I`m going to try my luck at rice again, even after last night`s episode (Glutton for punishment me!).

I just ordered my bedspread from, the Taste of Home catalog. It comes with the magazine sometime. I also saw some in the J.C. Penneys catalog. :smile:

shpj4 03-06-2007 03:00 PM

Today I am going to have roasted chicken, peas and carrots, a caesar salad and some Vanilla Fudge ice cream for dessert.

CassiesKitchen 03-06-2007 03:06 PM

After handing in my resignation at work and having some potential bad news about my brother, we will have a family meal consisting of pork roast, baby potatoes and gratin broccoli.

Chocolate brioche for dessert.

Uncle Bob 03-06-2007 03:49 PM

Eating light tonight. Bad Tummy.
No Bourbon!!:sad:

A bowl of bouillabaisse however...and a few bites of bread.

LEFSElover: Re bedspreads ...
That's why I make my own now.

Dinner is leftover Tequila Lime Chicken & spanish rice for DH, and leftover bbq sammiches for me and the little one.

VeraBlue 03-06-2007 04:25 PM

I made lots of tasty food on Saturday evening for a family gathering. I made paella with rabbit and chorizo, spanish meatballs from ground turkey and bacon with a lovely gravy, garlicky shrimp, roasted potatoes, and peas with mushrooms. I even made a killer cream cheese flan. There is enough left over to feed 4 people! I'm one....any three of you want some, too??

mraa 03-06-2007 04:35 PM

sure! Sounds good!

Robo410 03-06-2007 04:35 PM

got the makings for bangers and colcannon so that's what it might be ... got a parsnip might be going in the spuds too, (but don't tell cause then it won't be authentic.)

VickiQ 03-06-2007 05:14 PM

I'm doing the pork chop thing tonight too- pork shops with brown sugar glaze,sweet potato fries an tossed salad.That's about all the energy I have to make for dinner.Love and energy, Vicki

VeraBlue 03-06-2007 05:28 PM

If he isn't, I am for your dinner, Flourgirl! Sounds especially nice for a poor guy who was out in the weather all day (like HH used to do in his early surevying days). What a nice DW you are!

Miss Blue

...I would love to dine with you this evening! Regrettablely, I will have to decline your kind offer...due to being under-the weather! In the future I pray that you will extend the offer again!

That's what I want too :tongue:
but I'm trying to get in shape - my friend wants us to do a triathlon within the next year :shock: (I think I can do the swimming and the biking but I hate running)

Tonight it is soup (carrots, brown rice, green beens, a little bit of beef, tomatoes, celery) and NO crackers. :ermm:
(I'm only allowed to cheat on the weekends - and NO poutine until April :wacko:)

kitchenelf 03-06-2007 11:40 PM

But I can have a dinner similar to yours tomorrow night :smile:- whole wheat pasta, tomato sauce, 3 meatballs and a salad with balsamic vinegar (no garlic bread). I never realized how much bread I ate until I was not supposed to eat any. :sad:

TATTRAT 03-07-2007 01:12 AM

I think we should have a renaming contest.:smile: I'm voting for "the poutinator":lol: or just plain, "antipoutinator"....:lol: .........

I'm with you about trying to get fit and stay in shape. It truly is all about what you put into your mouth and how much you use your body to your advantage. I'm doing both and it's paying off.................but................just you wait, as soon as I hit a certain number in my mental mind, I will be going to Jamie Kennedy's Wine Bar in Toronto where I'll sit at the bar and ask Steve to make me a "double" order of his [JK's] incredible poutine:wacko: ......................:rofl:

If you can assure me, sir, that you will speak the way you write, all evening, I would extend the invitation to you each and every evening.

I do so hope you are feeling better this day.
