12/27/10 Monday What's Cooking?

I'm starting to feel a little better today so I made egg noodles cooked in bullion with a package of cooked drumsticks from the freezer from when I made stock. I added some of the dried scallions for color and flavor, then drained it all into a bowl.

I was in the mood for some hot buttered noodles, so I just put some in a bowl along with some chicken and added butter. Very good. I think I will keep the noodles and the broth in separate containers so the noodles don't get soggy. I can always heat some up, with the broth, for chicken noodle soup.

What are you cooking today?


If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

We're off to the Waterpark today. We'll be playing all afternoon so Ken is taking us out for dinner after that. I'm still so freaking full that I'll likely just have salad. LOL!

Through the oddest set of circustances I have a bunch of leftovers in the house:
snow crab
shrimp: two sizes
bay scallops
clam juice
Now some of those ingredients, particularly the lobster and snow crab, have never graced our doorway before. But tonight we are feasting on a sublime seafood chowder. I know I will be serving it with a salad but am still debating about some form of bread to put with it. I'm pretty sure hubby will want saltines but I'm thinking maybe a cornbread just to give a little nod to the corn in a New England clam bake. I just love it when the Lord unexpectedly gifts us with the best of his kingdom.

I am roasting a small turkey for sandwiches etc. Still have some leftover stuffing from my pork roast. Maybe tomorrow with some turkey? The leftover roast goes with blackeye peas for new years.

zhizara - glad you're feeling better.
PF60 - Happy Anniversary!

We sure got walloped with some blizzard yesterday. We had snow drifts over 4' and snowfall of about 18". My guys are outside right now digging the cars out of the driveway.

I have a whole chicken simmering away ... it feels so cozy in my kitchen right now. I'll pick the meat off the chicken and make chicken and dumpling soup for tonight's dinner. We still have some leftovers from Christmas Day that we'll reheat for lunch, but I think we've had enough.

Enjoy the day and safe travels for all in the Northeast affected by this weather.
