  1. I'm going old school- oven baked salisbury steak with onions and gravy, mashed potatoes, peas and carrots. Hubby is on 12 hour snow removal duty today and he will need something hearty when he comes home tonight.

      I wish I was eating at your house tonight! I am recovering from pneumonia, so my husband is picking up pizza on the way home from work.

        1. re: Phurstluv

          I'm healing much better now that I am home. Nothing like a little hospital food to make you appreciate even the most basic home cooking (or pizza!).

    2. Sunday dinner will be:

      Red Beans and Rice with Andouille & Tasso.....
      A Side Salad.......
      French bread......
      Warm Peach Cobbler with Vanilla Ice Cream....

        All this time I thought you were a traditionalist.

          Normally....but you see I have this beautiful red-headed daughter that comes for Sunday dinner (noon) sometimes...Daddy tends to cater to her wishes....:)

            That sounds like a wonderful traditional deep southern feast! And how sweet of you, big Daddy!! My Daddy would always do the same....

      2. I'm braising some pheasant legs for myself (with thanks for the idea to Ernie Diamond on a thread last month). Mrs H isnt keen on pheasant so is braising a lamb shank. Braising liquid is the same - nothing more than onion, garlic, thyme, red wine and a little stock. We're having it with some fondant potatoes, celeriac and maybe some frozen peas.

        Still got cheesecake from last night for a sweet.

        1. Sunday dinner and movie night for the family will be mushroom, onion and potato pizzas,
          tossed green salad with lemon and pear-apple cider with vanilla bean ice cream.

          1. My man mentioned this morning that he'd like something delicious tonight, so I suggested he cook '-P

            He's making youvetsi -- braised lamb shanks with orzo, kefalothiri, and tomatoes. Hearty, lamb-y goodness, perfect for the icy temps outside! Maybe I'll be nice and make some yaourti me meli -- Greek yogurt with honey and walnuts.
