11/4/10 Thursday's Dinner

The weather finally turned cool (64 now) and with a chilly north wind, so I started out my day with some of the split pea soup with all that gorgeous pork from the enormous ham bone.

Dinner tonight will be the chili I made yesterday. I had made it a little early so I put it in the fridge, but when I got hungry I saw the ham and Swiss cheese sitting there and made myself a nice ham & Swiss on rye toast.

The chili should be better today anyway.

What are you planning?

It's cold and we're scheduled for about 30 hours of rain. Tonight is a comfort food night. I've taken a couple of individual chicken pies out of the freezer to defrost for tonight's dinner. SO makes a very tasty chicken pie and we have tweaked it over the years to make it even better.

I'm looking forward to it.

Dad's sesame/soy chicken. I have to decide if I'm going to do it on the BBQ or in the house. I'll just see what the mercury climbs to today.

Z, I just love how you always plan ahead, very wise indeed.

I did those huge "Dolly Parton" chicken breasts in the stove top smoker last night, and there's lots of meat left on the bone. Think I'll do chicken and dumplings for two tonight. It's so blamed hot today!! With the A/C going full blast, it will taste good even if it's not cold outside.

I am planning to make scalloped potatoes with hot dogs cut up in it (wish I had ham!), and probably broccoli.

We have some leftover chicken so I'm making scalloped potatoes, field peas, tomato and cucumber salad and since I need to stay away from ice cream, I'll let dh have that and I'll have an apple for dessert.
