    Or Supper?

    How about just a general chit chat thread about what you are cooking for dinner tonight ....

    I'm sure some things will be a very good recipe, thus own thread worthy!





    I'll go, tonight: organic pork chops (I picked up this week of Earth Fare) green beans from the garden this past summer ( with bacon grease) and butter noodles (for kiddos)

    We don't do desserts around here.....

    I am in Houston visting with my grandson I have not seen in 6 weeks :( So I decided to bring down a couple of the jars of chili beans to my daughter to try out....maybe hoping to get her interested in canning :)

    Last night I bought some sausage from the store.....cooked up some rice and heated the beans....They were a HIT !!! Everyone loved them :) Dont think I got her interested in canning though :/ But I have more beans at home that need to be canned next time I pull the canner out...which will be next weekend :)

    Dinner tonight...going out to eat with a friend :)

    I like these kinds of threads. :)

    Although for me, dinner tonight was really, really easy. We had a basketball game to go to south of the border (KY), so we had pizza on the way. :D

    We had ham and scalloped potatoes! Our local grocery store is doing some remodeling and had their spiral hams marked $7 off! I got five hams for just over $5 each!

    Lunch was leftover shrimp fettuccine alfredo and Davis didn't want anything for supper so I scrambled some eggs and diced ham. Added a couple of drops of Tabasco Sauce, dried chives and parsley. Yummy! I haven't made that in ages.

    Yesterday had a pot of ham and bean soup on all day. It was delicious. On the other hand, wanted some cornbread to go with it but wanted more of a moist cornbread than a cake like (recipe I use) got on a recipe site, this cornbread had all kinds of good reviews. The only thing was it took Jiffy Cornbread Mix. I dont buy stuff like that, so I looked up another recipe for a make at home Jiffy Mix and mixed it up ad made the recipe. The nicest thing I can say about that cornbread... %^*($%^$%^:)p in the garbage it went. Tonight quinoa with mushrooms.

    I don't cook on saturdays at all. I cook every meal all the other days but on saturdays we go out for breakfast and then lately we've been getting the sampler platter from Buffalo Wild Wings. Hubby has a tall cold one while he waits for them. Lunch on saturday is whatever you can find lol We used to get pizza or sometimes a hoagie (subs). I've been wanting some chinese lately but hubby doesn't want to even try it ( big goof).

    Already planning ahead: tomorrow, Sunday, going to put a chicken on to roast.

    Today: we went on a little venture and ended up at a little burger dive in Tennessee...it definitely stuck to my ribs and so everyone was on their own tonight if they wanted more.

    I have a honey cornbread muffin recipe that is amazing. It is smooth, without the grittiness. I can post if you are interested. I made muffins the first time (as called for), but decided to double and make in a 9x9 dish next time! It will definitely add some more YUM to my next chili night. :D

    I love cornbread! I would love the recipe! My DH doesn't like cornbread due to the grittiness and so I don't make often for just me. Maybe I could get him hooked with this one!?

    I made a vat of spaghetti (with meat) and whole wheat pasta....yum yum.

    Now in regards to cornbread, it is good just about any way you make it. You can make a meal of it by putting in some cream corn, grated cheese, green chiles and some chile and baking. Very filling.. The only thing better is with a big pot of mustard greens.

    When I was younger, we would take and slice it, put butter on it and cover with cane syrup for a good sweet finish.

    He MIGHT eat this one - it really is yummy. I love cornbread (texture) and some grit, but it usually has too much for me. This one is sweet and smooth with a small amount of grit. :)
