Good afternoon everyone

Gonna make up a Shepherds Pie. Personally, its not my fave, but my wife and daughter love it, so it is easy enough to throw together.

I make a similar soup whenever I roast a turkey (with wildrice stuffing). I don't add the pimento, I use the leftover gravy in the soup, toss in some dried cranberries, and mushrooms, leftover stuffing, mashed potatoes, and use evap. milk. It is very tasty. But then, wildrice makes everything tasty <g>. It's liquid turkey dinner <g>.

We're having a Danish dish called "Pied pot". One frying pan and then everything into one pot. Ground beef, garlic, onions, paprika, allspice, cayenne, canned tomatoes, stock, brown rice (that's our variation, the original recipe is for white rice), frozen corn and peas thrown in near the end. Colourful and yummy.

I was in the city all day running errands (a 3-hour round trip drive). I fought traffic and sloppy winter driving conditions, I'm too tired to cook. Good thing DH is at the other house tonight, so I'm bach'ing it--chili topped with a poached egg and grated cheddar cheese. Tomorrow's menu, however, is roast beef with gjetost and lingonberry gravy, greek oven-fried potatoes (I'll post my Greek friend's recipe if anyone is interested--haven't checked to see if this recipe / similar recipe is already in the recipe section--I'll do that before duplicating a recipe), and veggies--probably 4 or 5 since potatoes aren't a veggie according to my DH and he insists no meal is complete without 4-5 veggies.

I like my newest method of copying/pasting & printing a recipe I'm pretty sure I will try.

By printing it out, like I did with Confetti Soup, I have plenty of room to make notes of how I made each batch and how they turned out. It's starting to work. I have a 1/2" notebook with my Avatar in full size on the front. I have several recipes with notes that I'll be making again and again.

Another thread idea is to start a clean up of clipped recipes. They need to be read once in a while, and maybe someday used. I was thinking something like posting a basic recipe and see what others think would make them special.
I scan mine, store them on my HD and copy them on a separate memory stick. This way, I can get rid of all the little scraps of paper (I have my mom's and my grandma's, so scanning made sense). I park my laptop on the kitchen table, load the recipe and go from there. Works for me. I have separate folders for categories and also separate folders for LCBO's food and drink issues. I was able to donate these to a local thrift store and got the 10 years' worth of issues out of my life <g>. Hopefully, my computer doesn't die and my memory stick doesn't fail <g>. Oh, and I send the family ones to my brother, so he has a copy of them as well...

Yum--pierogies. How do you make your pierogie dough? How do you do your filling?

Mine is 1 part sour cream to 1.5 parts flour. My filling is mashed potatoes (10#), grated cheddar cheese, sauteed onions, and bacon (I spread it out between pieces of paper towel and roll it with the rolling pin to break it up once it's fried). I usually make the filling the day before. I'm looking for a "drop-dead delicious" pierogie filling recipe using sauerkraut...haven't like the recipes for the same I've found on the Internet.
