Got home at midnight from our jaunt to Vegas for the holiday. 7 1/2 hour drive that usually takes 3 h 20 m.:censored: DH got a ticket and that put him in a foul mood:furious: for the 1 hour remainder of the drive.:boxing: Hubby wanted to stop at Denny's for a late snack before we arrived home but my elderly mom was in her pajama bottoms:eek: so we just came home. He was hungering for a big dinner salad and fries so I whipped it up for him and we all ate around 12:30am. Not bad as I guess I went into full speed to get it on the table quick so we could then, go to bed and sleep on a full tummy.:brows: Love home made fries though, so good, crisp and hot.

For our dinner tonight, I plan on taking a New York steak out of the freezer, grilling it quickly, slicing it ever so thin, and putting it atop a bed of baby salad greens with red onions thinly sliced, grated hard boiled eggs, crisped bacon and crumbled bleu cheese on top. The dressing = bacon drippings/honey/s&p/pineapple vinegar/smidge of soy/pinch of ginger. I think I'll get brave and do more fries as I have a Fry Granddaddy and lot's of canola oil, so they're quick.

Gotta get mom home after the contractor comes today. So a drive is in the offing:wacko:

So, anyone else cookin dinner tonight?

tonight is thai take out. we were going to have it last night, but dw was busy with the baby, and i had to fix the darn washing machine. i didn't get finished with it until 1am, so i just had a bunch of cheeses, chips, some prosciutto, a slice of macedonian holiday cake that my neighbor made, and fruit punch for dinner.

so tonight, were having pad thai - extra spicy, bangkok beefsteak (sliced strip steak over broccoli rabe in a brown fish/mushroom sauce, and fried tilapia topped with a red onion/pineapple/pepper salad, and jasmine rice.

Since I had several slices of prime rib left, I'm going to dice it, add diced potato,carrot,mushrooms, sauteed onions and garlic and some left over au jus and make a meat pie..along with that will be fruit salad,steamed broccolini with a cheese sauce..Left overs are great when you'd rather play then cook. I just might make an apple tart if I can stand to leave the computer :LOL: kadesma

A onion garlic pork roast, mashed potatoes with roasted garlic and gravy, and green salad. I roasted the garlic using the electric garlic roaster that I got for Christmas. It is pretty neat, just add the oil and garlic, close the lid, and 30 minutes later roasted garlic.

I went out and bought a couple 5# chickens, so dinner tonight is Roast Chicken with Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, and Green Beans. Homemade Peanut Butter Fudge for dessert.

We're having re-runs of ham, twice baked potatoes, green bean casserole (a different one), cheese cake and chocolate pie.

After tonight, the ham will be taken apart, leaving a meaty bone for New Year's ham'n beans, a smaller bone for something else (split pea soup?), and scraps to make ham salad or use in other dishes, like scalloped potatoes.

They say a packing plant uses everything but the "oink", but I did throw away the skin and a lot of the fat. If I still had a big outdoor dog, like I used to, he would have gotten that in with his food for several days.
