Cooking for Tonight

Mister has invited a coworker back to our place for dinner and cards tonight. We have the Beekeeper's Cabbage that I made yesterday, some kielbasa that we picked up last night (FYI? we need a new source of kielbasa -- this will be the last that I buy from the grocery store... MSG...), and then what to have as another side? The beekeeper's cabbage would be enough for two, but probably not for three. So I poked around my fridge, and we also have green beans leftover from my stirfry, leeks from the farmer's market, potatoes, eggs, lots of options...

After checking in at Heidi Swanson's site, I think that I've decided upon Vibrant Green Beans as my second side. It uses the leeks, uses the beans, and I'll use a spice other than dill (as I apparently don't care for it).

Also, would love to try this recipe for delicata squash, as I have a couple of those around, and am interested in fun and exciting ways to cook them!


  1. Oh, I love dill! Not with leeks and beans, mind you. I love it with wood smoked salmon, which is one of my culinary weaknesses. Hope you had a nice evening and dinner.

  2. Okay, I don't care for red cabbage--or just cabbages, really, come think of it--BUT I am SO making the mushroom gravy! I'll save the hollandaise sauce for when I meet peeps who like it (I like meat sauces, preferably without a tomatoe base, which is why stroganoff is SUCH a favourite).

    Oh my god, girl, you totally made me the new favourite of my vegetarian friends. Convey my deepest appreciation to N's SO (although I've no idea what SO means).

  3. Significant other you silly goose! And yes, that gravy was TO DIE FOR.

  4. Oooh, significant other! I suck at abbreviations :(

    And tell me about Indian food!
