    DH and I met up downtown for lunch, since we didn't find anything great in the fridge to bring for lunch today. We went to Pete's To Go Go (only makes sense if you're in Halifax I think). We paid over $20, but each got a very tasty sandwich and pasta salad, and traded half of each and shared a drink. We were still kind of full when we got home and did not eat supper.

    When ground beef is on sale, I make individual meatloaves using a very small cake pan as a mold, cook and freeze them that way so they're ready for a night we didn't plan well (I do meatballs the same recipe, cook and freeze).

    Although we'd already eaten enough, DS still needed food, and I'd taken a pack of three of those cooked meat loaves out and had leftover mashed potatoes in the fridge, so he had that. DS LOVES my meatloaf, one of the few things he has learned to love that I cook as a supper. He also loves my burgers on the grill which we do in a similar way - cook and freeze for a rainy (unplanned for!) day! They also rock for lunches when we don't plan well.

    Sounds like my Dad's house growing up, my half bro only wanted rice and hated potatoes, my bro only wanted potatoes and hated rice and neither "liked" pasta. Me and my Half sis would eat all three.

    Veggies was a whole other fight and to this day my step mom cannot keep track of which ones of eat which veggies and it was not odd to have 3 different veggies on the table so everyone would eat some form of a veggie, even salad became an issue.

    Than when the extended family comes together watch out you have never seen so much food to cover everyone's wants and needs it is normal to have 2 mains and 5 to 10 sides.

    DD well she picked in everything lol.

    And yes sometimes I have to cool two sides cause I don't like rice so much and LOVE potatoes and DF HATES potatoes and LOVES rice *sigh*

    Too hot to cook!

    How do you make them??

    I put them in the oven uncovered and just watched them and they turned out okay. I have to make another batch tomorrow since I still have a ton of rice and cabbage leaves left but ran out of space in my baking dish, so going to do it all over again tomorrow!

    Holubtsi - Cabbage Rolls
    -------------------------

    To prepare cabbage leaves:

    1 medium head cabbage, remove core from bottom, put in giant pot and boil. Start removing leaves as they become a bit transluscent. I put them on a cookie sheet to cool. Continue until it gets down closer to the middle and the pieces are small (I save them, freeze, and use later in soup or casserole).
    Pack loosely in a bag, and freeze at least two days. Remove the night before you are going to make the rolls. When thawed, gently squeeze out excess water.

    Filling
    ------
    (We mostly eat cabbage rolls on meatless/fasting days, so it's rare I make them with any meat. However, you can add sauteed bacon or ground meat.)

    1 1/2 cups raw short grain rice (it's best because it's stickier, but long grain works okay, too) to three cups water. Cook til not quite done, because you are still going to be baking it.

    I make my rice in the nuker (1000w microwave - on high - power 10 - for six minutes, then on power 6 for 12 minutes.)
    Alternatively, bake in regular oven or cook on stovetop.

    Sautee two medium onions in 1/4 cup margarine or butter.
    Add about 2/3 of this to the cooked rice, and let cool a bit.
    Add lots of salt and pepper - and I like to add some dill.

    To roll - I've always made small ones, so that means cutting up the big cabbage leaves strategically, but some people like the big honkin' rolls.
    Good pics here on how to roll - scroll about halfway down
    http://www.the-real-meal.com/2011/10...cipe-rice.html

    I use a small roaster - just fits about two layers of rolls (when using cabbage and rice amounts above).
    Line roaster with foil so it goes all the way up the sides.
    I put in my rolls diagonally, with each layer going the opposite way (easier to remove them when cooked).

    Overtop of the rolls, I've tried many different things.
    Usually I would use a can of tomato soup mixed with a can of water. Make sure there is enough sauce to come to almost the top of the rolls.
    Often I use tomato juice at first, then if I have to add liquid, then I add the tomato soup and water.
    Then put overtop the sauteed onions and margarine that is left, or dot with margarine pieces.

    If you don't want them tomato-y - just add water with some margarine on top.

    Put foil overtop of the roaster, then put lid on and bake covered at 350 degrees F for about two to three hours - (start testing whether the cabbage is soft enough); add more sauce/liquid if needed.

    Serve with additional sauteed onions, tomato soup, or mushroom sauce.

    South West chicken thighs in the slowcooker. A can of black beans, a can of corn, a cup of salsa, chili powder, and skinned (I hate that job!) chicken thighs from No Frills. Will make some rice later, and possibly broccoli or frozen peas.

    Cost breakdown
    can of beans - $0.97
    can of corn - $0.67
    cup of salsa - around $1.50
    chicken thighs - $5.45
    chili powder - pennies
    rice - $0.50
    frozen peas - $0.50

    a decent meal that I can now just forget about for under $10. Not too too bad.

    Husband and son are away for supper, so I just had baked fries with gravy and zucchini sticks.

    I'm thinking popcorn for dessert later.

    Was at the company golf tournament for dinner, we had steak, baked potato, bread, Cesar salad, and cold slaw. All and all a pretty good meal got a steak I liked this year so that was a bonus and meant I could eat the steak.
