I think it's going to be hot dogs cooked with onions and tomato served over small pasta shells and steamed fresh baby spinach.

We are expecting more snow so maybe I will do some bread.

You?

Papa Murphy's pizza! I'm going out to spend the weekend with my fiance and he lives out in the country. It is a big treat for him to have pizza, and he asked for one, so I will pick one up after work. Funny thing as it used to be a big deal if I cooked. Now I cook all of the time and McDonald's or Papa Murphy's is an exciting meal.:rolleyes:

Will add salad for myself.

Shoot... I've already cleared 4-6 inches from my driveway... ;) Beautiful day though, nice and bright.

I'll probably be fixing something simple today, like grilled chicken wings and cold veggies.

I made a kitchen sink salad with swiss steak (made in the pressure cooker) and a big bowl of spinach. It sure looks appetizing. My family will have it all eaten by the time I get home from work tonight so there's no telling what I will end up eating. I hate working evenings.

Me too. I miss my family and our time together, but what can you do?

I'm going to leave dinner for the crew here. I'm leaning towards either taco salad or spaghetti or chili. Something tomatoey and ground beefy. I'm waiting to see what the weather does before I decide completely. I might need to leave something really stick to your ribbish if the temperature plummets as expected. I leave for work at 215 so I'm hoping there will be something left for me at 11pm!

I hope you enjoy it!!

I'm sure I will. When I checked the package of wild rice I found it to be a mixture including several brown rices and others. It's very pretty and will look perfect with the confettiness of your recipe.

I don't know if my screenshot will come out, but the brand is Lundberg Family and the mix is the 3rd mix, Wild Rice and Gourmet W ...OOPS!!!!!!

Long Grain Brown Rice, Sweet Brown Rice, Wild Rice, Whole Grain Wehani Rice, Whole Grain Black Japonica Rice

YAY, I got it to work! Tada.JPG

I want those smileys, MsMofet. It would copy it, but not the animation. The pot and kettle are precious!

I found a container of dark stock and it melted down to 1-3/4 C so I just added a little water. I had defatted it, but there was about a tablespoon's worth, so I let that go for the butter.

The stock is from a large can of Beef & Juices we often get in our commodity box. It's a strong beef flavor, and the meat doesn't need to stock to taste good. I just melt the stock and fat out, then defat it.:chef:

I think it will taste good with that rice mixture. It says to cook for 50 minutes and let set for 10 more.

I have a pork roast going in the crockpot today. It's a recipe I've never tried that uses cola and ketchup. I threw in some onions and potatoes for good measure. I plan to make a gravy out of the liquid now that I have gravy-making pretty much licked (woot!!)

I have some boneless skinless thighs I need to cook.
Think I'll fry them up with Panko bread crumbs, and have some smashed taters and gravy with a big green salad.

I bought some dry sea scallops to pan sear. Will likely try to make a lemon/wine sauce to go with them. Add to that some roast asparagus and some steamed rice with crimini mushrooms.

Is it dinner time yet?

Tonight is "date night," so we will be eating (and watching movies) at our best friends' house tonight. She is making lasagna. :cool:

I'm making a stock with the bones from Monday's pork roast. I'll be using that to make lentil soup for dinner tonight.

MsMofet's Confetti Soup took on a life of it's own. The delicious rice mixture with the beef stock from the canned beef, then celery, onions, garlic in fresh pot of chicken stock.

I used half the rice mixture. I can make another soup/stew with it later. Mmmmm!

At this point in the Confetti soup I'm supposed to make the cream sauce, but my taster cup is telling me this soup wants Teriyaki. I used some of the sherry braised pork. This part of the pork roast was the part sitting in the sherry braising liquid. It's awesome.
