So.  You may have noticed that it’s not exactly November.  I completed breakfast and lunch on Nov. 24th and then completely blew off dinner in favor of not cooking.  Later (sometime in December), I decided that I might as well make the diner and invited my friend, Amy, over for lunch.  A million years later (is it already January?) I’m finally getting around to posting.

This was my first time encountering Cornmeal Mush in a Meta menu and it honestly was a bit bland.  No wonder grits usually involve a bunch of butter and cheese.  However, the shopping list for the orange juice was “oranges” so i juiced my own.  Yum, yum! A satisfying breakfast all around.

11.24.14 Breakfast

Lunch was a surprisingly hearty meal compared to the standard Meta lunch.  I skipped the canned plums (since they’re disgusting), but I was still pretty full after consuming this one.  The Frankfurters in Blankets were amazing and I especially loved the creamed rutabaga.  The rutabaga is an underrated vegetable in my opinion.

“Dinner” was served for lunch.  My friend Amy is an awesome hostess so I went all out with a napkin and everything.  The pork and rice casserole was quite tasty considering the miniscule ingredients list.  Also, the grapes had seeds.  Weird.

595 Frankfurters in Blankets

1 recipe baking powder biscuits (26)

10 frankfurters (about 1 lb.)

Roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness, and cut in 4-inch squares.  Lay a frankfurter on each square, roll up, and fasten by moistening edges of dough and pinching together. Place on baking sheet and bake in a 425 degree oven for 15 minutes, or until nicely browned.  Serve with Mustard Sauce (922).  5 servings.

Note: Half-cooked little pig sausages may be used in place of frankfurters.

922 Mustard Sauce

To 1 cup of thin White Sauce (919), add 1 tsp prepared mustard, mixing thoroughly.  Excellent with ham or meat loaf.

2 eggs

3 c. ground cooked pork

1/2 c. uncooked rice

1 c. milk

Beat eggs slightly and combine with remaining ingredients.  Turn into a casserole,k cover, and bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours.  Serve hot with Tomato Sauce (916) if desired.  5 servings.
