What's for Dinner ~ Tuesday Dec 11th

Sleep...with a side of sleep for me. Don't feel like eating.
I may try making London Broil for Bill when he gets in later though.

You?

1. How do you do London broil? I've been skittish. Always seems like an immanent tough disaster.

6. This is generally what I do.

Marinate in whatever you choose.

Relatively quick, hot sear on the grill or frying pan (about 4-5 minutes per side for rare/medium rare).

Slice thinly and diagonally against the grain.

Great as leftovers as well, either hot or cold, and can use in things like stir fry or stroganoff.

23. Ours was pre-marinated in Burgundy. Our store sells marinated steaks too - and we like them a lot

so we thought we'd try the London Broil.

We broiled on my broiler pan - mid-oven - for about 8 minutes on each side. Bill liked it a lot. Not tough at all.

We had planned to cube it and make stew with it, if it hadn't worked out!

7. That TJ's pizza dough is good stuff.

The only thing I can get right now is pillsbury pizza dough in a tube.

Enjoy!

and make a sandwich on toasted bread. Sooo good.

3. Just soy dogs and fries. Husband just left for tax land (H&R Block)

for a training class, so it's just me for dinner.

9. He's going to be busy for the next few months I would guess.

Hope that works out for you.

21. Bill's SlL worked the past couple of years for H&R and really enjoyed it.

She said it was hectic but interesting work.

25. The managers/owners of this franchise have three offices and numerous

parties before, during and after the tax season! They always invite the spouses, so it feels like a family (one you like) when we get together with them . My husband likes the work as well, he feels that he is helping people and he gets to make a little pocket money in the exchange.

26. Sounds like a great group! Bill's SIL has also said she likes being able to help

people this way. I'd never thought about that aspect of the job before she mentioned it.

4. I'm in the last stage of making candied orange peel

right now. When I get around to it, I'm going to braise some pork chops in goats milk, mash some potatoes, and steam-sautee mushrooms and fresh green beans. Ciabatta rolls still on hand, so we'll be chowing on those as well. Sorry you don't feel like eating, Lucinda. Take gentle care of yourself.

12. Sorry you aren't tip-top today.

After I posted I read your reply to Lucinda and felt a little dumb, but that's not unusual. I hope you don't catch this new flu. We had our vaccinations and I'm hoping that will get us through. Drink lots of water and get lots of rest. Take good care of yourself!

13. thanks, yellerpup.

Hate feeling funky, particularly when the weather is so perfect today.

But we expect bad weather over the next couple of days, so the perfect excuse for doing just what you say is in the works.

15. It is Twilight Zone warm here this December.

I walked out into the village today to look for name tags for the littlest great nieces and nephews. The card shop wanted 10 bucks for six and they weren't even sparkly! Glad I was able to go out, but my doggies are barking now. I hope you are able to fight off whatever is trying to get you down. Chicken soup for you!

Oh! The candied orange peel is amazing! Tender to bite, very essentially orange, a small bitter flame, and sunshine sweet. They look like treasure rolled in the raw sugar. Very Christmassy! If we were neighbors, I'd drop some off with tea and truffles.

16. Did you make the the same as the candied ginger?

One of the nice things about the ginger is the anti-seasickness property. Orange is not going to do the same thing, but would be nice to have as well. Great for chewing on after a meal.

Wish you could visit! We could both put our feet up and drink a bottle of wine while we whine about them. DH has abandoned me for the evening, which is probably just as well, but he does make a great cuppa tea.

17. The recipe is smaller

and the proportion of sugar to water is higher. We just tried one peel apiece with a square of good dark chocolate and it is just beyond what I expected. I seriously didn't think it would compare to the ginger but it does. The candied ginger is my favorite medicine. This orange stuff is candy! Yes, I'm sure we would laugh away the hours if we had the chance. Too bad you had to miss the movies. We saw Argo this weekend and Lincoln last weekend. Both excellent films in different ways. Snuggle in.

20. Thank you sweetie. I bet your house smells amazing from the orange peel!

Now I want mushrooms....I could probably manage chewing them. Yummm.

24. The house did smell fantastic!

Lovely scent. Juicy candy with a crunch from the turbindo sugar is truly a treat, and with a bit of bittersweet chocolate, nirvana. You wouldn't have to chew these--they melt in the mouth. Hope your mouth is better and that you have a much better day today.

5. Sorry you are not feeling well.

Me neither. I think I am coming down with a cold - achy, itchy eyes, sniffly, joint pain and overall malaise.

Or it could just be to many evening guests lately and not enough sleep, lol.

Anyway, don't feel much like cooking. DH is going out with a friend to see the Bond movie. I have decline. Might have him pick me up something in town.

19. Awww...I'm sorry you are unwell too. I'm pushing zinc, if it feels like a cold?

And something spicy.
Mine is my usual mix of ick with a toothache thrown in. LOADS o fun.
I hope the quiet night was restful for you!

14. I am still nursing a cold, but I am tired of soup, so I am making Swiss Steak and mashed potatoes.

At least I can kick back and rest while it simmers.

*cough* *cough* *snort*

18. Ack! Sorry you are unwell. Zinc works wonders for colds!

Mashed potatoes are always a winner for me when I don't feel well. But I like mine with hot sauce, and that always clears my head!
