It’s been cold and raining the past few days.  Salads have gone on hiatus for a bit until I warm up, again.  I’ve also been busy doing other things and haven’t been here to post dinners – so here are the past three!

Saturday was a beans-and-rice-cassoulet-ish dinner.

I browned half an onion with a chopped chicken breast and sliced kielbasa.  I added a half-cup of rice, a can of diced tomatoes in juice, 2 cans of beans, 2 cups of chicken stock, a pinch of herbs d’Provence, and a bit of salt and pepper.

I put thick slices of tomato on top, covered them with bread crumbs, and put it into a 325° oven for 45 minutes.

Sunday saw me lazy.

I browned two pork chops in a skillet and then popped them into a 400° oven for about 10 minutes.  heated up leftover rice and beans, added frozen green beans, and dinner was served.

Tonight I was not exactly ambitious, either.

Salisbury Steak, with mushroom gravy, mashed potatoes, and peas.  Winter-food on the 28th of March.  Brrrrrr.

I just mixed chopped onions and garlic with the beef and grilled it, then simmered it in the gravy until cooked through.

On another note…

I started picking up goodies for Sunday’s Brunch for 18… I’m gonna make three types of mini-muffins and homemade brioche – with part of the dough turned into mini-cinnamon rolls on sticks!  (Love the no-knead website!)  and a whole slew of other fun things.

It’s going to be festive!
