I like making fish sandwiches out of breaded haddock sticks. (They're considered the "premium" fish sticks around here, contrary to the fish sticks made of chopped Alaskan pollack.) But I bake, rather than fry, those.

where do you find baked fish sticks? All the ones I've ever seen are fried before they're frozen. What brand is this?

Today, for the first time, I'm making Bacon-Wrapped Meatloaf with Brown Sugar - Ketchup Glaze. All the bacon talk has me bacon hungry and I've been planning to try this recipe. I called meat market 2 (no. 1 is not open on Sunday) and asked if they had ground chuck, ground veal, and ground pork today and they do! They'll package my proportions and I'll pick it up later. Just trying to figure out a side.

Blood orange margarita. Tilapia ceviche with fresh lime, shallots, cilantro, roma tomato, and jalapeno. Flauta yucateca with chicken axiote and roasted tomatillo salsa. Burrata (a soft cheese similar to fresh mozzarella, but creamier) drizzled in herbed honey with toasted brioche points.

Can anybody recommend what I can make with an arseload (the exact measurement) of mushrooms for tea tonight?

I can't eat cheese and I'm vegetarian. I'm struggling to think, other than a mushroom soup (and I made a soup to solve my carrot problem yesterday). Maybe a cottage pie? What else could I put in it if so?

It's no doubt too late for you, Twankydillo, but I've been contemplating this Mushroom soup. Perhaps for next time.

Also probably too late, but I do a mushroom Chilli.
Loads of beans, I use Black Turtle beans from dried, some onion, a bit of Sweet Potato to thicken and sweeten the sauce slightly, garlic, cumin, chilli, vegetable stock. Cook the mushrooms with some garlic and either oil or butter, depending on your preference before you add them.
I mostly don't bother with tomato much in Chilli, but they don't hurt if you like them.
here you go, the least precise recipe you will ever be given!

I didn't use the mushrooms yesterday so it wasn't too late, I'll make something tonight

I'm not a fan of chilli, but my sister likes it. I like mushroom soup, maybe I could buy some nice crusty bread to go with it.

I've decided that tonight, I'm making creamed tuna on toast.

I can't actually remember the last time I had that.

Tonight I'm frying catfish for the southern guy. I'll have steamed redskins with parsley and peas to go with it. The catfish will be drained very well. It's the first fried food I've had in ages and I think half a fillet should do me.

That sounds good. If you try that recipe let me know what you think, eh?

I have to stay away from acidic foods for a while, but I sure would like to try this Pasta alla Norma. It's almost vegetarian. I'm not sure if it would wreck the dish if you left the anchovies out but that would make it vegetarian, I think. I'm not vegetarian but it sure looks good to me.

Last night I made bacon-potato torte. Tonight it's leftovers.

Mrs. BW wants to go to a Thai restaurant tonight. It has been 20 years since I have been. I don;t care for sweet foods, enjoy spicy and/or hot. Any suggestions about what to order?
