With the beginning of Fall (feels like it up here!), let's start a new dinner topic!

What are YOU having for dinner tonight??

 

Me?  I'm having homemade elephant ears….I think that's it….one with blackberry jam, one with cinnamon sugar hungry  They are OMGosh good!

Leftovers here.  We had some odd and ends of burritos, pizza, biscuits, stuff like that.  All good, and now there is more room in the refridge!

Dinner started out as chicken pot-pie, but turned into chicken surprise!

 

I cleaned the freezer and cooked 2 chicken breasts, some stir fry veg and made turkey gravy from some frozen stock.  Considering that NOTHING had been labeled with a date it turned out pretty good. 

 

It tried some of Suzann's Angle Biscuits, but I CAN NOT get yeast to activate! Oh well, they were good and the pear honey was really good.

We had breakfast burritos, hash brown patties and muffins I made from Suzanne's quick mix.  I made raspberry ones from raspberries from our garden and I also made a batch of cinnamon streusel ones.

DH is smoking a pork shoulder for pulled pork and the go-with is slaw and baked beans.  No dessert – lost 30 pounds during my prolonged hospital stay and want to keep it off!wave

Good for you mamawolf (not the hospital part of course)!  But that dinner is sounding WONDERFUL!

We had an International Dinner yesterday from Azerbaijan. 

Yogurt Soup….ehhhh, nobody was especially fond of that.

White bean Salad….beans, onions, tomato, sliced hard cooked egg.

Eggplant Roll ups……we all enjoyed those, cilantro, walnuts, a slather of mayo and a ton of garlic!

Stuffed eggplant, stuffed cabbage, stuffed tomatoes……..tasty

Easy Baklava………oh yeah baby!!! that was fabulous!!  and easy, and even better the next morning with a cup of coffee (so hubby says, not me!)

Sounds like everyone is having a wonderful time with the cooler weather. 

This is my first post as I am a relative newbee here at CITR, just found the site a couple of weeks ago.  Am loving it so far and have made a few things I found here, thanks.  But back to the subject at hand.

 

Leftover brisket sandwiches with home canned sweet pickles and tomatoes on leftover rolls.  Will be having the last of the Zucchini bread for dessert.  Just love the Sunday evening quick suppers.

Wish I was going to your house for dinner! We had BBQ chicken, canned coleslaw, scalloped corn, cornbread, my grandpa's potatoe salad, and as my husband calls them, satan eggs. Cold, cold ice tea. That was last nights dinner and todays lunch. Christy

I've made 20 skillets of cornbread today and put in the freezer for an event in a couple of weeks.  I'm NOT cooking.  Big Daddy is grilling hamburgers and making fries.  I  might peel a tomato for the burgers.

Grilled ribeyes, rice, and lettuce wedges with homemade thousand island dressing. I have been letting the steaks from this side of beef laze around in a beef broth and garlic bath for a couple of hours before grilling over charcoal and OH they are wonderful.

We had chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, green beans with bacon, biscuits, gravy and applesauce. Dessert was fresh peach custard pie. It was delicious and nice to have a good meal with family :)

The cooler weather sure makes you think about cooking differently

I sauted onions with some olive oil and then added my homemade mushroom soup.

Cooked the pork chops in that mixture.

I made some baked potatoes and greens.

I used the mushroom gravy for the meat and the potatoes.

Had a Louisiana Crunch Cake for dessert. 

I would definitely make this again… it was just a what do I have in the pantry to cook recipe.

Cheryl, your meal sounds delicious! I have been so tired lately I am going to dig out my crockpot recipes for all of November! Could those pork chops be cooked in the crockpot?

Tonight is leftover low-carb ham and spinach roll-ups.  To go with it them, I'm going to roast some string beans and potatoes together.  My husband doesnt' have to eat low-carb, so he gets the potatoes and we share the string beans.

Hi Miss Judy,

You sure could cook them in the crockpot.  Just throw everything in and turn it on.  If you are using store bought condensed cream soup, just add some water or milk so it's a lot thinner. 

You probably could add the potatoes to the crock as well. 

I'm thinking about giving this a try in the crockpot as well.

Hugs Cheryl
