What's for Dinner?Page 2 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
Steamed salmon with medium grain rice, green tea or water, and a slice of berry tofu pie.

Tonight's a date night so that's what I'm planning to order since he chose one of my suggested restaurants.

vvvvvv

But..but... it asks what's for dinner....I assumed it was for tonight, lol

Thanks for the wishes, I hope to have a great time as always :-)

If it were not a date, I'd probably have a chicken noodle soup with very little salt, I have a headache that's killing me right now.

Posted by abcDana:
"Red bell peppers stuffed with ground turkey, rice, parmesan and spices cooked in a chunky tomato sauce."

Ooh, that reminded me of a favorite. My grandmother made a very similar dish, can't recall if it had Parmesan or not. Opting for turkey is a great move that I would totally try.

I was surprised ... pleased but surprised ... that my son and daughter-in-law
dropped off their daughters to spend the evening with me ... the girls are
picky beyond belief when it comes to foods they'll eat ... so I was concerned
that I hadn't planned anything ...

suddenly, the 4-year-old said, "I liked it when we made pancakes, Grandma!"
so ... that's what we did! I cheated by using Bisquick ... added more eggs than
the recipe called for to amp up the protein ... at the girls' request, we colored
the pancakes PURPLE (yuck) ... I got a skillet out, put two pancakes in at a time,
adding pre-cooked turkey sausage to the top of the pancakes for the older girl ...
I was amazed that they ate the pancakes! and cheerfully!

for dessert, they had popsicles with frozen yogurt centers! no veggies but ...
hey! I'm the Grandma! not their dietician!

Hey Miss Molly! You sound like a rocking Grammie!

Tonight I am having homemade split pea and ham soup. What with all the cold and snow here, it will be a welcome home treat after a hard day's work!

today, the day before Thanksgiving ... I've made chocolate pudding so that,
when my granddaughter comes over, she can use little cookie crust tart pans
and make teeny tiny chocolate pies with whipped cream toppings for her and
her cousins for tomorrow ... I've also made four pumpkin pies and, soon as
they're out of the oven, the "leftovers" turkey will go in ... we're having dinner
at my daughter-in-law's tomorrow and I LIKE LEFTOVERS! so I'm making
my own leftovers for tomorrow evening!

I made a 3 layered "Mexican flag Jell-O" yesterday ... red, white and green! and
I've already done the cranberry sauces, both cooked, one w/orange marmalade
because I'm cutting back on grating orange peel, etc. this year ...

early tomorrow morning, I'll cook the green beans, mushrooms and bacon ... and
the baked yams ...

I suspect what's for dinner TONIGHT will be D-i-c-k-e-y's BBQ or Chipotle!!!

does anyone else just plain get tired of cooking? I live alone and sometimes
it's just too much bother ... I reheated a frozen homemade blueberry muffin
(gluten-free, milk-free, etc.) for breakfast ... then made a gluten-free, etc.
pizza for lunch w/onions, mushrooms, sausage and pepperoni! and red sauce!
... by dinner time, I was just out of the mood to cook ... or to eat, for that matter ...

what's for dinner? tonight, it was Cocoa Puffs in flax milk! how THAT for
uninspired!

couple of days ago, I made a fabulous "cheaters' chili soup" ... which I
love ... it includes Swiss steak or ground beef then a list of "cheaters'"
cans of already prepared products like Dennison's chunky chili con
carne, Del Monte tomatoes, kidney beans and whatever else I want to
add ... this time, I added black beans, onions, bell peppers and corn ...
but it's an easy way to make something I'll actually eat ...

later, I created a Swiss steak in gravy over mashed potatoes with peas
and carrots ... it was so good that I reran it the next day ... even tho I
had leftover "cheaters' chili soup," I didn't feel like eating tonight so had
Frosted Flakes with flax milk! maybe I've been living alone too long!
I have no one to show off for or to please so I create and eat whatever
I like ... I'm rather enjoying it!!

I use to make a version of a what I called Swiss steak. You pound a decent size round steak to tenderize it, season it with salt & pepper and any other spice you like with beef, then dredge it in flour, then dip into a beaten egg or milk or both, then back in the flour and let it rest on a cooling rack for about 4 mins while you heat a heavy skillet on medium high (lower temp. if the oil splatter is too much), use a vegetable oil or peanut oil. Brown both sides them put on a cooling rack while you mix up a jar of V-8 and 2 cans of Veg-All (mix of veggies), pour in a enough to coat the bottom of the baking dish, then cut up steak into serving piece size and put in the pan then top with the rest of the mix. Cover and bake for a couple of hours or until your meat is tender. Goes great with potatoes of your choice or just by it's self. The V-8 gives it a different flavor than just a tomato sauce base, and it's the only way I can stomach lima beans.

Since it was just me occupying my night, I made a light goat-cheese salad with Parisian bread.

I'm not happy, lest I cook, for somebody. I love cooking for my family. I love cooking, for others. I need to learn to love cooking for myself.

Freezing rain outside -nothing needs doing -definitely a good cooking day.

I'm thinking something Italian.

Home today so I have this brewing on the stove for tonight, serving it with homemade green onion pancakes instead of the bread listed in the recipe, and not sure yet what else:


Cranberry Red Roast Braised Pork Shoulder (Ming Tsai)
Ingredients
All ingredients A-Z
2 cups naturally brewed soy sauce
2 cups red wine
2 cups water, plus more if necessary
1 small ginger root, sliced into 5 thick slices
2 bunch scallions, 1 inch pieces
3 star anise
1 packed cup of brown sugar
1 cup fresh cranberries, plus 1/2 cup for garnish, halved
1 bone-out pork shoulder, fat cap on, scored diagonally
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Chinese steamed bread (you can buy these frozen in Chinatown)
Directions
In a stock pot over high heat, combine all liquids, ginger, scallions, star anise, sugar and cranberries and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer and add pork. Cook 4 hours until pork is fork tender, skimming periodically. When ready, using a spider, remove pork and transfer to large oval platter. Remove star anise and ginger and discard. Reduce sauce by 25% and check for seasoning. Add remaining cranberries and heat for 5 minutes with steamer on top of stockpot to heat the white Chinese steam bread. Ladle sauce on pork, serve with steamed bread. To eat, slice pork and stuff inside steamed bread with a spoonful of the red roast sauce.

Wholemeal sandwich with a cheese slice (generic brand) dipped in an Indian mango simmer sauce and shallot on the side. With a cup of tea. Sounds weird probably but money's a bit tight so looking at economical options..in that vein, lunch was pre-cooked rice with a raw egg tossed in the pan and cooked a bit before adding a large bag of pre-prepared mixed leaf salad. Soy sauce to taste.
