Hmm, doesn't look like anyone but me has been eating these past few days Guess that's why I'm fat, I like food too much..

Last night I made Pork Farmer John...what is Pork Farmer John you say? Well, I'll tell you...

One night we all wanted Chicken Parmigian, but I had no mozzerella cheese. But I had cheddar cheese, and dh said that might be good. So I made it with cheddar and it was a hit! So we had to have a name for it (we like naming our meals here  ) and dh called it Chicken farmer John (it rhymns! LOL).

Then, the next time we wanted Chicken Farmer John, I had no chicken out, but I had pork loin out. SO, I cut the pork loin in about 1/4 inch thick cuts and treated it just like the chicken. Wa-la...Pork Farmer John! LOL. I was a good girl though and only had the meat and veggies, I didn't have the noodles.

What's cooking at your house tonight?

Mmmmmmm, Pat, that pork loin does sound good! Don't do sweet potatoes, but I'll bet that regular old russets would be mighty tasty!

Last night I made pork pie, ground pork fried up with salt, pepper, onion and celery and then combined with mashed potatoes and poultry seasoning ( I use Bell's pretty exclusively) in a biscuit crust (I cheat and use refrigerated buttermilk biscuits). Pour the gravy of your choice over the top and.... YUUUUMMMMM!!!! It's a childhood favorite of mine (my Mom is from Canada).

Tonight, I'm takin' it easy since the kids have basketball practice. Just going to do some chicken legs with seasoned salt and rice and veggies.

Tomorrow, though, it's pot roast in the electric roaster! Mmmmm... can't wait!!

Goodness, I need to go on a diet!

Yesterday we had beef barley soup. Tonight we are having shrimp and french fries. I am so lazy.........
I had never cooked shrimp before even though lots of people told me how easy it is. Safeway had a Friday special, large shrimp for $5 per pound. DH and I had it Friday, soooo good, wish I'd bought more. So tonight I'm fixing the balance.

MMM, your dinners are all yummy sounding!

I made a chuck roast in the cp yesterday. Chuck roast, oninons, garlic, soy sauce, seasoning and water. Made mashed tators and gravy, peas and carrots to go with it.

Hmm, not sure about tonight yet.

Yesterday we had Roast Beef with all the trimmings.  Tonight DH is cooking Liver and Bacon Casserole with carrot and swede mash, boiled potatoes and carrots.  Kids aren't particularly keen on liver but in this house it is 'Hobson's Choice' in otherwords you either eat or go hungry! lol

Since we are going to be in the 20's today, I am making frito pie for supper.  It is my favorite meal during cold weather, and it's soooo easy to make.  I heat up 2 cans of chili.  Then I use a small casserole dish and layer chili, sliced cheese, and fritos as many times as possible.  Preheat oven to 350° and cook for 10-15 minutes.

Oh Jennifer, we don't make Frito pie, but we serve Chili Billies, chili with cheese and Fritos. We got the idea from a street fair fare. They split open a small bag of Fritos and put a spoon of chili and cheese on top. Gettin' hungry, better go put on some beans to make chili tomorrow.

I haven't done alot of cooking this past week. We did frito chili pie last night as well since it is icy and cold. I had lots of fritos in mine while DH had some chili and fritos with his cheese. haha!

Night before last we had breakfast for dinner and I made eggs and pancakes. Don't do that very often but when we do the kids always like it, and its cheap and easy. I love breakfast food so I'm content to eat it any day of the week!

Not too sure what we'll do today since we're all home and iced in. Perhaps a meatloaf. I got a new mix from homemade gourmet for a bacon cheeseburger meatloaf so that could be good. I'm not a traditional meatloaf fan but I've found a few ways to make it that are pretty good.

From scratch I use 1lb of meat, one egg, and mix them together with 1/2 cup each of mustard and ketchup and shredded cheese. bake and top with cheese for last 5 minutes in the oven. Top with fresh tomatoes and pickles and you basically have a mcdonalds cheeseburger without the bun!

The secret to the tasty meat is baking it with the mustard/ketchup and cheese. I've also done this with crescent rolls, browing the meat/mustard/ketchup/cheese then "stuffing" crescent rolls with the mixture and baking them per directions on the rolls wrapper, top with another slice of cheese, pickles, lettuce, tomato.

MMMM, I am hungry now!

Jennifer, that Frito pie sounds so yummy. We do something similiar. We take our tortilla chips, lay em out on a plate, add chili, cheese and for the boys jalapenios or salsa, then do another layer and pop it in the microwave. Sometimes we use browned hamburger instead of chili. We call em Nacho's. LOL

Jenn, that sounds soooooooo yummy! I am going to have to try that next time I make a meatloaf.

Last night I made london broil, rice a roni and corn.

Tonight I think I'll do a turkey pot pie in the CP. I'll see if the boys want to grind some corn for a cornbread topping.

Yesterday we had Freebird's burritos for the superbowl. I only like them once in awhile, though hubby would eat them everyday if he could. Fortunately, the "cheese" was feeling it, so we had those for a special treat during the big game. No idea about tonight... I am having a very hard time finding anything I want to eat. No morning sickness or anything, I just get really hungry and then can't figure out what I want!! Hehe.

Glad to hear you aren't having morning sickness Jess!

I made sweet and sour pork last night. My two big boys are the only ones who eat it. But this is an easy recipe to make two different ways. I cook enough pork for everyone, then seperate the meat into two piles. One pile goes back into the pan for the sauce and the other gets eaten as is. Then I make a pot of rice or noodles (I made both last night) and a veggie.

I am thinking about taking out the beef ribs for dinner tonight. Depends on how I feel later though.

I took pork chops out to thaw..... don't know yet if I'll do mashed potatoes or fried potatoes. It depends on the time factor after my haircut. LOL It's also supposed to be nice this afternoon and I might decide to work in the yard for awhile.

I'm going to cook a big Salmon fillet on the grill for dinner. Will also cook some broccoli sprinkled with a little olive oil wrapped in aluminum foil on the grill beside my Salmon. Might throw a potato or two on as well.
