Oh that sounds YUM!! David is so picky about cheese, he calls all the Italian cheeses I like, Stinky Cheese

Salmon is on sale at my grocery store, so I just have to figure out which way I want to make it, probably grilled with brown sugar glaze. I am going to try a new recipe from Cooking Light for cauliflower gratin and I will make couscous as well.

Got a couple of pork patties left from the other night. The Boy, when consulted, thought he'd like smashed potatoes and gravy with them. Lots of interesting veg around -- I'll pick one.

Didn't get to the chocolate mug cake last night. Hoping to fix that tonight.

I had pizza it was frozen pizza from Albertsons. I think it was the best frozen pizza I have ever had. The brand was Culinary Circle. Everyone should try it

Got burritos from Green Burrito tonight.
After spending hours sorting all that mail after the holiday and spending hours in the rain and wind delivering it, it was all I could do to go through the drive thru.
I've been craving spaghetti, so I hope to make that tomorrow. It's doubtful though. Looks like tomorow will be much like today....without the rain.

A friend/church member of my sister's is recouperating from surgery so the sunday school class all volunteered to make dishes. Today was Sis's turn and she started making a lasagna. Hubby said where's the lasagna for the rest of us? So sis had to hit the store for more ingredients and also some creme de menthe for a dessert she makes.

So, thanks to BIL, we all got lasagna and creme de menthe brownies.

For anyone who wants a fast chocolate cake hit -- not gourmet, but totally satisfactory for a fast dessert or snack...


4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
a small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.
The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!
Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.

It's enough for two and is really quite decent and not too sweet/rich.

I'm going to try that mug cake at the weekend, because i have a massive mug that Karen sent me over last year that would be perfect for it

I roasted my broccoli as well and it was really lovely!!

It's housework night tonight so i usually eat after i've done it, but it's usually something quick. I think i'll do spaghetti bolognase and get some crusty bread on the way home
post #72 of 178
I am making a big pot of chicken vegetable soup today. I wanted to do a few containers for the freezer so thought that would be a good project for a rainy day.
So soup, crusty bread, and fresh fruit for dessert for me.

I went to APPLEBEE'S with my club for our

'Thanksgiving" supper. I had shrimp and parmegon on steak with sides of broccoli and garlic mashed potatoes, a couple of Classic Tonics with gin, and for dessert, a bananna milkshake. YUMMY!

Work wasn't so bad today, I got off fairly early and had a good nap. So I made spaghetti. Yummy!!! With garlic bread sticks.
post #77 of 178
Probably going to be something frozen or fast food tonight. I may get a brisket or something this weekend and try another crockpot recipe!
post #78 of 178
I am thinking pork chops, with mashed potatoes, green beans and mushroom gravy..I have been craving pork chops all week. For dessert most likely just an apple or pear...

Last night was totally on the run. Tonight, however, is Friday. That means a nice dinner, and usually some company (must confirm with R&A).

All the talk in another thread earlier in the week about roasts and Yorkshire Pudding and whatnot set my mouth watering, so I think I need to see what my butcher has to offer. And if I like it, I think it's going to be roast beef with all the trimmings. After which we'll want something not too heavy for dessert, and I may resort to another favourite we haven't had for a while: Gelato Spazzacamino.

My mother went to a holiday bazaar at a Polish church today and brought back pierogis for me.
So I'm only a week late.

I LOVE pierogis. I actually made them from scratch once and it took most of a day to make about 6 dozen of them. You have to totally appreciate anyone that takes the time to make them. My DH is 100% polish and his grandmother used to make them all the time.

Tonight for dinner? DH was out of town all week on business, and it was his birthday on Wednesday. So tonight I'm making a stuffed chicken, fresh broccoli, mashed potatoes and mushroom gravy (think thanksgiving meal with chicken instead of turkey). I have an angel food cake with fresh strawberries for dessert.

I am verrry tired tonite...had orientation class for 10 new associates today.Dinner was Marie Callendars frozen lasagna,garlic toast and a salad.It was yummy!
post #82 of 178
Today was payday, we usually get some take out. But I decided to make Rib-eye steak, Yukon Gold baked potato, and my guilty pleasure...creamed corn.
So the rest of the weekend we'll eat a bit lighter to make up for that brute of a steak.

The best grilled sandwich ever and apple slices
Best grilled sandwich ever is fresh whole wheat bread with swiss cheese, spinach leaves, fresh ripe garden tomato, red onion, and avocado. Sometimes I throw some orange roughy fish or salmon on and/or pesto.

I am doing my Christmas baking this morning so I since I will have the oven ready to go and all I am going to do roast chicken with all the trimmings.
That way I will have some left-overs for the next couple of days

Tonight we are going to have bread, wine, fruit and bread for dinner. I am also going to make homemade chopped chicken liver.

Pan fried Chicken
real mac n cheese
crackling cornbread
and apparantly he's trying to give me a hint, because last night he came home with a few sweet probably candied sweet potatoes too!
post #88 of 178
The leftover roast and gravy from last night will make fiiiiiiiiiine hot roast beef sandwiches.
post #89 of 178
Well tonight is left-overs. I did roast chicken yesterday so am thinking hot chicken sandwich with mashed potatoes and green beans...For dessert most likely a couple of snowball cookies
I have to get the rest of the cookies I made yesterday decorated and into the freezer today they are just to darn tempting to have sitting around.
I think I gained 10lbs the last two days just licking cookie dough off my fingers...

Nothing exotic tonight. Sausages, mashed potato patties, a veg of some sort.
