Sunday Dinner

Today I made some French Navy beans - really yummy....I hope to make a nice marinated bean salad with them for the middle of the week. More on that one later as it develops. These cooked up great in an enameled cast iron pot, especially on my wonky stovetop. Then it was on to roasted chicken thighs- which I cooked with salt and pepper and just a little water in the bottom at 375 degrees until they were done through. After they cooled enough to handle, I picked them apart with a fork, removed the skin and bones and used the meat to make a Dreamfield's Pasta dish with some Macaroni Grill seasonings and cheese. I think the people will like to eat that one night this week .

Then we had a lovely pot roast. I seared it on all sides and edges in a little bacon grease
( I know....shame) then added a bunch of pepper and a little salt, (ok, a lot of salt), covered the bottom of the pan with a little beef stock, sliced some onion on top and then put the lid on and in the oven at 275 for 4 hours. It turned out AWESOME!!!

And of course, the corn casserole that I mentioned earlier. Only changes I had to make were:
1. Didn't have any canned creamed corn, so had to use a chub of frozen fried corn - just thawed it and added a couple tablespoons of splenda.
2. Added about 4 ounces of grated cheddar cheese

We had green beans and a nice tomato/onion salad too, but I didn't take pics of that.
