What's for Dinner ~ Wednesday Nov 28th

Not sure here!
I made a big meatloaf for Bill last night, which he loved, but I'm avoiding it. Eating simpler this bad tummy cycle.

You?

1. Burritos, I think.

I have a variety of leftovers from the reunion that I would like to use up, including some tortillas, lettuce, tomato, cream cheese and turkey. So, I am thinking that some smothered turkey burritos would be great.

Sorry about your tummy problems. I love meatloaf sandwiches. Can you handle that?

4. Mmmmm.... cheese enchiladas. Maybe I will switch plans

and make some of those and some turkey enchiladas as well. I've got leftover rice and a can of black beans, so I am think we are set!

5. This recipe calls for Farmer's cheese, which I can't find here. I'm using ricotta instead

now all we need is some Margaritas and chips and we're good to go .

6. Great idea on the Margs! DH going into town in a bit and I have lots of limes,

but no tequila. So adding that to the list now!

Skipping the chips. Looks like a little weight might have been picked up over the holidays.

11. Me too. I'm afraid to go on the scale

My sister and b-i-l were here from Wed. until Sat. after breakfast. We both like to cook and treat each other to new recipes when we get together. So appetizers every night with drinks and a bigger breakfast than usual and I know I picked up the weight.

16. Exactly! I usually have nibbles during the day, then dinner, but not this week.

Breakfast, then nibbles and more nibbles and more nibbles, then appetizers, dinner AND dessert!!

Yikes!

9. From Emily Chase's The Pleasures of Cooking with Wine

I love this recipe from the old anthology Horn of Plenty:

Stuffed Pork Chops in Orange Sauce

4 pork chops cut 1 1/4 in. thick
2 C. firmly packed grated seasoned bread crumbs
2 T. grated onion
6 T. melted butter
Slit chops from fat side to bone to form a pocket. Mix crumbs, onion and 3 T of the melted butter. Stuff chops; fasten openings securely with skewers or toothpicks. Grease a large heavy skillet and brown chops slowly on both sides. Pour off any fat.

3 T. flour
1 C. orange juice
1/2 C. white table wine
1/4 C. water
1/4 C. brown sugar
2 T. grated orange peel
2 t. grated lemon peel

In a saucepan blend remaining 3 T. butter with the flour; add orange juice, wine and water; cook on low, stirring until mixture boils and thickens. Add brown sugar, orange and lemon. Pour sauce over chops in the skillet. Cover and simmer gently about 1/1/4 hrs until chops are tender. Turn and baste and add a little water if sauce becomes too thick.
Serves 4. Good with sweet potatoes, a spinach ring filled with corn, sliced, baked apples, or apple sauce.

10. Howdy, mom, and welcome to cooking and baking!

This is a great group, probably the best on DU and I think you will really enjoy it.

I remember this dish from childhood and love it still.

21. Kinda boring tonight.

Split pea soup and bacon and tomato sandwiches (out of lettuce). I actually had some leftover butternut squash soup (one of my favorite soups) instead of split pea just because I wanted to get rid of the last of it.

Tomorrow will be turkey pot pies. Yummmm!
