    jdouglas - as a side answer to your butter beans question, PicSweet has Butter Beans. I am cooked them tonight.

    Because DH had to work stupid late last night, we are having the pork cops tonight. I may change the sides. I'll figure it out as I make it.

    Observant, HT has very nice asparagus on sale this week for $1.99/lb.

    Dinner tonight is breaded baked cod, steak fries with malt vinegar, and roasted asparagus. The bonus to this dinner is the whole thing is going to be made on a couple of foil/parchment lined sheet pans, so the cleanup with be almost zero. :)

    Looking forward to watching Gray's tonight for sure.

    Observant, authentic NY cheesecake actually does not have a crust. it is baked in a foil covered springform pan in a bain marie (hot water bath). The base looks a bit brown, but it is just carmelized batter from the baking process.

    Faye, your Saturday soup sounds really good.

    RAESMOM1612 -
    It is a fattening site ! LOL
    I need to read a little more but I did see that silicone molds are used to insert the cheesecakes !
    If I can find out more I'll holler when/if I make them - the caravan will be packed .
    Now that you mentioned New York and cheesecake I have a question :
    what crust do you like on your cheesecake ??
    I have only had graham cr#cker crust ( crazy word block) but unknown to me for years , my MIL wanted ONLY pie crust and the cake had to be from Brooklyn !

    raesmom1612 - I vote tacos, too! And does your TGIT involve Grays and Scandal by any chance??

    observant - Yes, please on the cheesecake stuffed cupcakes!!!!

    I vote we start the caravan at ybaverage2003's house because I could definitely eat some steak!

    Thomas - even if you don't post what you are having for dinner, the caravan is still showing up...after we eat steak with ybaverage2003. :-)

    On Saturday, I am making the mushroom and 3 cheese tortellini soup from the website. It looks soooo delicious. I clearly have a soup thing going on right now. It is going to be a high of 54 on Saturday so soup is a must.

    RAESMOM1612 - I vote TACOS !

    GARNERTOY - what's for Dinner ??? LOL

    omgoodness observant!! I haven't even clicked on the link, but just reading what those cupcakes are called I'm in love. Anything cheesecake is a friend of mine (totally a NEW YORK thing lol) let me know when you make them and Rae and I will pay you a visit :)

    Last night we took DH out to Buffalo Wild Wings for Veterans Day. So tonight I have to cook since there were no leftovers. I'm thinking something quick so either spaghetti with meat sauce or tacos.....its TGIT tonight so no time for family or cooking lol jk
