Either taco salad or turkey burgers and roasted Italian green beans.

It depends on how much work I want to put into things because (drum roll). . .

My leave of absence from online university ended today. I'll probably post about it in Unhijackable or something. Let the dance begin.

Half turkey and half beef meatloaf is our dinner tonight! But I'm going to make them into mini-meatloaves as I prefer that to full size meatloaves. I'm going to make mashed potatoes to go with it and some sort of veggie, don't know exactly what yet as I'm not 100% sure what all veggies we have in the freezer.

greenfrog78~ Have you tried roasting your veggies? I started doing that a little over a year ago. I had gotten so bored with steamed and boiled veggies and sauteeing takes, like, effort and stuff. But tossing some green beans (or broccoli or cauliflower or anything really) into a roasting pan with salt, pepper, olive oil and maybe some balsamic vinegar is way easier. And really yummy.

Yeah we love roasted veggies. Roasting does something magical to them I think! Carrots roasted are my favorites but we've done all kinds. I've never roasted them with balsamic vinegar though, that sounds wonderful, I'll try that next time I roast veggies. Tonights veggies turns out is going to be cooked spinach(because that's what needs used up in the freezer) and cucumbers and celery in a green salad (same reason but in the fridge ).

I think it is a thing. I just received a box of candy with a couple dusted with edible gold leaf.

Yesterday I made venison chili. That would be, actually, half venison, half ground chuck. I'm not a big venison fan. I made a big dish of banana pudding and served it topped with whipped cream, for dessert. Yum!

Last night was Stuffed Green Pepper Soup. Yum. Tonight will probably be Chicken Jambalaya.

Tonight will be taco's. The only question is if I'm feeling spry enough to make homemade flour tortillas. They are so good but the hard shells are so much less work.

Cauli-and-asparagus cheese with broad beans & mashed taties.

Lately dinner has been various stamppots in fairly random combinations (because they're so easy, so filling and I take half the stamppot to work for next day's lunch). A little jalapeno paste livens them up as well

Steak and fully loaded mashed potatoes. I put the steak in the oven on 300F for about as long as it took the bacon to cook and now it's sitting in an oven at about 150F to keep warm while the potatoes cook. We shall see how the steak turns out.

A Greek salad with homemade grilled lamb sausage, baby spinach, feta, cherry tomato, Kalamata olives, pickled red onions, red pepper, and red wine vinaigrette. Goat cheese pancakes with smoked salmon, sour cream, and golden caviar.

Potato and "other veggie" mash. Some form of cabbage is traditional in the mix, but my recent ones have been potato/swede/carrot/leek mash with a little cheese mixed in and maybe a little horseradish or mustard. Often served with sausages & gravy, but I usually serve it with some green veggies (brussels/broccoli/green beans) & gravy. I discovered it courtesy of Dutch friends during visits there. They reckoned a really good stamppot has the consistency of freshly poured concrete

(Wikipedia has some examples)

There's a joke that when presented with an unfamiliar vegetable, the English boil it to mush, the French/Belgians slice and fry it while the Dutch mash it into a stamppot.

I poached some chicken breasts in lemon juice, tarragon, and garlic last night. Tonight I'm going to chop a portabello cap and make chicken soup with wild rice & mushrooms served in a bread bowl. Perfect for the rainy night predicted.

Except it got late and I was tired and couldn't be bothered!


Tonight is pepperoni pizza, and we'll try the other thing on Sunday.

Tonight is homemade beef stew in the crock pot and fresh homemade bread to go with it. It smells so good in the house, I'll have to go for a walk before I start sampling.
