Too much Zucchini - help

This!
Husband likes when I hollow them out, mix the innards with some spaghetti sauce, stuff them and bake. Sprinkle mozzarella and some parmesan on top a few minutes before taking out of the oven.
I've been roasting a lot lately too.
Dip in a tempura batter and deep fry.
Or just batter and fry. Serve with ranch dressing.
Dang, I just had to add zucchini to my grocery list!

When do you plan dinner?

I pull three or four proteins out of the freezer and plan a loose menu for the week based on those, and what's in the pantry. Make a list for the grocery store for husband.

Getting uncooked prime rib shipped?

I want to have a nice prime rib shipped to my mother. She won't spend the money on one herself. All I can find are precooked. Is there a reputable company that will ship an uncooked prime rib?

What to do with leftover prime rib?

I did the same this year (thanks to Chow!). I pulled it out at 120 though. Rested for an hour while my bakers cooked and put it back in a 450 degree oven for 10 minutes. Best prime rib ever! Husband is still raving about it.

Difference between meatloaf and Salisbury Steak?

I use pretty much the same recipe for SS and meatloaf. SS is formed into patties with a rich brown gravy. No sauce or condiments on my meatloaf, thank you.

Difference between meatloaf and Salisbury Steak?

We call that cube steak. I made Swiss Steak with it last night. Also use it for Chicken Fried Steak.

Linguine & Clams

Looks awesome! We don't find good clams up in our neck of the woods often.

canned potatoes - anyone cook with them?

Never heard of them until camping with a girlfriend. She fried some up for breakfast. They were okay. Not something I would go out of my way to look for.

Prime Rib and baked potatoes question

I'm slow roasting prime rib for the first time tomorrow. 200 degrees for 4 or 5 hours (this recipe: http://www.chow.com/recipes/30234-slo...
)Are my potatoes going to bake at 200 degrees? Do I put them in the same time as the prime rib?

What are your stovetop oatmeal tricks?

Love Quaker Oatmeal. Cook per directions, add a pat of butter, and I'm good.

Does anyone actually put stuffing inside the turkey anymore?

Bird is always stuffed with traditional bread stuffing. Oyster dressing on the side.

Seems to me some are just actively seeking a reason to be offended. I wouldn't even notice "you guys".

Thanksgiving Guests! What are you bringing?

It's more like what I would call Shrimp Cocktail.

Take a boatload of thawed shrimp, cut into a small dice, add about an equal amount of similarly diced celery. Squirt in just enough ketchup to cover the top, add horseradish, sprinkle about 1/4 to 1/2 a lemon in. Mix it all up. Sauce should barely coat the shrimp, not drown it. Taste to see if it needs more ketchup, horseradish or lemon. Refrigerate overnight.

Thanksgiving Guests! What are you bringing?

Going to nephew's house. Will make Grandma Faye's Shrimp Salad.
(His grandmother - she passed away this year. She made it for every single dinner gathering for most all of her 70+ years.) It should bring back some good memories for BIL and the nephews.
If not, husband will eat it all. He devours that stuff!

What's for Dinner #335 - Is Everyone Feeling the Chill? [through Nov. 24, 2014]

This came out really good. I piled a bunch of baby fresh spinach leaves in a bowl and sprinkled with a bunch of sauteed mushrooms. Heated some Italian dressing in the mushroom pan, sprinkled in a couple of tablespoons of shredded Parmesan and tossed the salad with it. (Don't drown it, just toss so everything is thinly coated with the dressing.)
Sliced a one inch thick piece of french bread and spread, thickly, with equal amounts of butter and Parmesan (creamed together) and fried, cheese/butter side down, in the frying pan was nice and toasty (less than a minute).
I love when an "experiment" actually works out! LOL

Packing leftovers at the table - Is it just me?

There sure appears to be an awful lot of people who spend entirely too much time actively seeking a reason to be offended.
I have never had a server pack my leftovers. They just put a box on your table and you pack it as you see fit.
