What's for dinner? January 24

What is everyone having for dinner tonight? Do tell!

I offered my husband the choice between ham leftovers from last night or a pre-made chicken pot pie. The question was "ham or chicken pot pie?" which he interpreted as a choice between ham pot pie or chicken pot pie. . . Let's just say that the conversation got quite ridiculous from there.

Eventually he chose chicken pot pie so that means that dinner preparation is going to be really simple for me. All I need to do is remove the packaging, pop the pie in the oven for the specified amount of time, and voila! Dinner is done. I also plan to heat up the leftover mashed potatoes from last night to go along with the pot pie. Why not?

So that's what's going on the dinner table here. What's happening in your house this evening?

My wife and I had a big lunch at Texas Roadhouse, so we just had the last of the leftover mac-and-cheese for dinner.

I found a great use for the left over mashed potatoes - I add cheddar cheese a little milk or heavy cream and stir it. I use an ice cream scooper and drop the globs into a non-stick muffin tin then bake for 15 minutes then under the broiler for a couple minutes. It's like twice baked potatoes but you can freeze them once you get them out of the muffin pan.

I wouldn't go that far. You can do the same thing with meatloaf, soup stock and anything else that you want to break down into single or smaller amounts. I have been looking for more of the old school metal / aluminum ice cube trays for meatloaf
