Any sweets for sweetie, today? Dinner, Saturday 10-19-13.

Since today is Sweetest Day...at least that's what the greeting card folks tell us. What's on your table for your sweet?

Woke up this morning to a chilly, windy morning with rain. Lots of leaves getting knocked off the trees so it seemed like a soup kind of day.

There was lots of juice/broth left from last night's short ribs and I hated to toss it. I used that as a base for my soup. Took out a package of homemade potato rolls from the freezer to have warm with butter along with the soup.

Glenn's helping his son again today and he'll be cold and tired when he gets home so soup should be just about right.

What is everyone else having?

We're dining out with friends tonight. Not sure what's for dinner, wither Italian or middle eastern.

Chicken with garlic and shallots. It's an Alton Brown recipe, where you brown a whole cut up chicken in olive oil, place 10 small, halved shallots, 10 cloves of garlic, a few sprigs of fresh sage, thyme, and parsley in a dutch oven with more olive oil (about 1/2 cup) cover and bake. It's kind of like a braise, but he calls it a "slow fry". All I know is the chicken comes out soft and flavorful and the oil infused with all of that stuff along with some chicken fat is amazing! I'll fish out some roasted garlic cloves and put them in some mashed potatoes. Serve this with homemade baguette.

For dessert, pecan pie. This pie is Rob's reward for putting up with multiple apple desserts over the past few weeks. He hated apple anything until he met me, and now he kind of likes it.
