12/21/10 Tuesday - What's Cooking?

Today is the apartment complex Christmas Luncheon at 1PM. I sure hope they have turkey. I'm Jonesing for turkey.

The Thanksgiving Luncheon got cancelled.

I plan on taking most of the chocolate walnut fudge cut into 1" cubes. Very rich.

I'll need the casserole dish to make the layered fudge with the ingredients I'll buy on Thursday. That one will be a butterscotch/pecan filling sandwiched between layers of chocolate. I decided that when I make the peanut butter layered fudge, I won't use nuts in it, trying for the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup flavor.

My cold is still hanging on so I'll probably just get a plate of food and come back here so I don't infect anyone.

What are you cooking today?

I'm shooting for prime rib. I much prefer grilling ribeyes as a steak, but there's an internet recipe I've been wanting to try. I just hope my roast isn't too small and my oven can get to 500F.

I'm making something I haven't made in years, tarragon chicken skillet. It's the very first "gourmet" (gourmet for a 13 year old anyway) meal I made... in my early teens. Dh has never had it so it's been at least 8 years since I made it last. I was going through one of my old recipe clippings and came across the recipe and I wanted it NOW. I hope it's as good as I remember! It's basically chicken breast pieces seasoned with lemon pepper and cooked in a skillet, smothered in a citrus-tarragon cream sauce, served atop a bed of rice (brown, in our case).

Going for gnocchi today. Youngest daughter is going to help out. I'm thinking I'll do two sauces. One will be cream based with some garlic and cheese and the other is yet to be determined! Suggestions?

No suggestion on the sauce but one recommendation is DON"T FRY THE GNOCCHI!!!

My younger son is taking me to Busch Gardens Christmas Town tonight so we will eat there.

No frying - CHECK! I don't usually fry them anyway. I usually boil til they float, drain, toss with butter and serve with sauce on the side.

We're cleaning out the fridge so it's leftover pot roast and vegetables from Sunday night.

How about a lemony caper sauce?
