    Fish curry here. Will use 'kingklip' (a firm white fish - bit like hake -
    but tastes better) fillets, with roasted chilis, some lemongrass and
    coconut milk...

    You?

    Bangers 'n mash, Louisiana hot links with baked beans, and a
    spinach salad with a hot bacon dressing. I'll grill the bangers
    and hot links and have Daughter-unit Beta work the potatoes and
    beans. Spawn'll do the small spinach salad since if there's a
    leaf with grit still attached, she'll get it.

    Roast chicken (Judy Roger's recipe), Cous-cous made in chicken stock with
    shallots and fresh dill, and steamed Brussels sprouts.

    Ground veal patties, breaded with seasoned crumbs & pan fried. Ground veal
    (I don't care if it's "mystery veal" LOL) was cheaper than cutlets or veal
    scallops. Sides: fettucini tossed with lots of butter, pepper, grated
    parmesan, NO cream and damn, I don't think she has any nutmeg. Steamed
    spinach, to which I might just add cream, garlic & parm

    Still cold & rainy here, so it's going to be home made pot pies -
    using the last of an orange/rosemary stuffed chicken I roasted the
    other night.

    My new refrigerator will be delivered tomorrow, late-afternoon; so, I'm
    trying to feed two of us on the current contents and restock on Wedneday,
    when the new fridge is in place. Dinner tonight will be whatever I can
    manage to cobble together from the following items in the fridge:

    - Sunday's left-over, home-made chicken pot pie
    - 3/4 cup of cottage cheese
    - 1/2 cup of chorizo flavored refried beans
    - 8 eggs
    - 3 ounces of thin-sliced, deli pastrami
    - 3 ounces of thin-sliced ham
    - 2 cups of left-over, fried, diced potatoes with onion
    - half a slab of neufchatel cheese
    - several slices of swiss and american cheese
    - grated Mexican Blend cheese
    - 1 cup sour cream
    - 1/4 cup salsa
    - 1/2 pound myzithra cheese
    - 4 ounce wedge of romano cheese
    - 2 cups pomodoro sauce
    - 1 each poblano pepper, green and yellow bell peppers
    - several ribs of celery
    - butter, Brummel and Brown tub margarine and honey butter
    - various condiments and jars of sauces (fish sauce, hoisin, etc)

    So, I'm thinking pot pie, green pepper halves stuffed with cottage cheese,
    and celery ribs filled with neufchatel.
    Or, a pasta dish; either spaghetti with browned butter and myzithra or penne
    with pomodoro with fresh grated romano. I can fill out the meal with
    vegetables from my freezer (stand-alone unit).

    That leaves a breakfast omelet stuffed with diced peppers, onions, ham and
    swiss. Diced potatoes and maybe a bit of fruit.

    Finally, a lunch of sandwiches; hot pastrami with neufchatel on rye for one
    and ham and swiss on rye for the other, with assorted bits of vegetable
    remnants. I have some tortilla chips on hand; I'll spread a few with the
    refried beans, top with Mexican Blend cheese and pop in oven to melt cheese
    and serve with the salsa and sour cream.

    That leaves a relatively small number of items to be packed on ice, in
    cooler(s) until its "out with the old" (32 year old JC Penny, made by
    Gibson) and in with the new (Frigidaire)

    I remember reading once that a good cook could make a meal from
    whatever was in the refrigerator.

    I looked in the refrigerator. Peanut butter and cat food.

    I decided I wasn't that good a cook.

    We rarely have corned beef..... usually only on March 17th, but there
    was another sale last week so we had one this weekend. Dinner tonight
    will be corned beef hash - a meal that's always better than the
    original, IMO.

    No nutmeg, no problem (IMO).

    Creamed spinach is in my future this week too. I'm jonesing for it!
    I don't think I'll add any cheese though.... not sure about adding
    garlic either. Simple is good.

    Steak was on sale today, I'll have the spinach with that.
