If Mr. Clod's coming-home schedule is normal, then Buttered Chicken, an Indian dish that's one of our favorite recipes. If he ends up needing to work indeterminably late, then a pasta in a cream sauce that doesn't take as long to make.

"Potato pie" - i.e. sliced onions, potatoes, carrots, turnips in baked in a little stock with grated cheese on the top. I frequently bake this sort of dish in one of these as it's cheaper to run than a full sized oven. In fact a similar dish is described in the fifth paragraph on this page.

The next meal I'll make will be a white pizza. And after that, the next meal I'll make will probably be a clam sauce spaghetti.

That looks interesting, Limey. Too bad they don't sell in the US.

Buffalo Burgers, smoked mozzarella pasta salad, and red potatoes. Maybe some asparagus in place of one of those side items.

I like sauteed mushrooms and onions so I might throw those on top of the buffalo burger. I never serve buffalo burgers in a bun in case you are wondering.

I won't be happy with it however, not since you fools created the crab or lobster thread. Nothing is going to taste good until I have crab legs and I will have you know, that you have ruined my life. Once again. lol!

Some pre-prepped skillet pasta dish from the freezer, with added broccoli. Too tired to cook these days.

Tonight; chicken soft tacos made from a rotisserie chicken, a box of spring mix and a jar of salsa (actually 2, mild for the kids, hot for me). I slaved over the toaster oven for like 10 whole minutes...

Pot roast with potatoes, carrots, onions, and celery in a rich tomato-based gravy, simmered all day in the crockpot.

I spend more time preparing the toppings than on anything else when I do tacos.


Whats spring mix?

I thought as much after I posted it, but she wrote a 'box'. Greens in my part of the country come in bags.

Technically its a compostable clam shell. I like it better than the bags, the greens seems to stay nicer longer.

That was all the toppings - I forgot about the tomatoes I had...
