Sunday Supper

So I am sitting here on a Sunday night after work trying to decide what to make for supper.  Michael is out playing golf with his friends and won't be home until after 7, I have some time and was thinking about roasting that chicken I got on sale the other day but than I remember that he told me on Friday that he is all chickened out.  I can understand that, sometimes you just need a change!  What would be great is something I can make ahead and then just warm up when he gets home (you never know with golf).  In the freezer there is shrimp, chicken  (on the no list for today at least), talapia, pork tenderloin (we just had some last night) and one lonely bag of chop meat.  Hmmmmmmmm what to make?

All these ideas go through my head!   I could make a pot of spaghetti sauce or a shepherds pie but frankly I don't really feel like cooking.  I'm tired and would much rather goof on on the Shamed Dogs site that Juju posted earlier today (even though I have already spent a bunch of time on it) so right now the chopped meat sits on the counter defrosting and I go from writing this blog to googling recipes that use about 1 pound of chop meat and hopefully produce leftovers that I can take for lunch tomorrow!  But I am thinking why do I start with the meat and than the side dishes?  Maybe I should start backwards, after all the meat doesn't have to be the king of the meal!  Perhaps that thought needs to wait for another day I don't feel energetic enough to follow through right now.

What will I decide to make?  Guess you will have to tune in tomorrow to find out!


  1. Oh, I can't wait to hear! I love a mystery!!

    And, I'm so glad you enjoyed the doggies!!

  2. What did you make? My husband--Mr. Chef--has a great recipe for a no-cook (meatless) tomato sauce: chopped tomatoes, fresh basil, LOTS of garlic, then parmesan cheese. YUM!
