Busy Saturday's Dinner 1-9-16

Smoked a nice sized Brisket the night before last. The last of it is going into the crock pot for Smoked Brisket Chili. I over did it originally on the Cayenne, so it's save my booty time. "Yeah that's the ticket!"

What's on your menu this fine day?

If your with me that's great. If not. Get out of my way.

Leftovers. Chicken Marsala over pasta for me. SO went out to lunch with some friends and she'll have her leftovers with a salad.

We're going to a party tonight. I'm making mini cheese balls with pretzel sticks instead of toothpicks.

Not sure. I browned up some burger and chopped onion, so it could be taco meat, or sloppy joes, or tater tot casserole or something else.

Edit: Tater tot casserole it is! Saved some meat back for something else later.

Totally not sure yet but it could end up being a rotisserie chicken and homemade salads.

Been raining all day, along with the temp gradually dropping. Winter weather advisory was just issued for our region. Rumor has it we're supposed to get a few inches of the white stuff. Let 'er rip! We're nice and comfy inside.

In view of the weather and the fact that there's a nice quantity of baked ham needin' to be used up and some russets that are lookin' a bit weak, we're going to have scalloped potatoes with ham, herbs and cheese. Our market had a super, super special on "spring mix" greens, so we'll have a side salad and some slices of homemade baguette. We'll be plenty full, comforted and, no doubt, have leftovers. Just the way we like it.

And, by the way, we have plenty of milk (4 gallons), bread (just baked 4 loaves) and toilet paper (a case of 96 rolls was recently delivered). I'm glad that's taken care of. Guess we'll have to make lots and lots of French toast. Not sure where the toilet paper comes in, though.

I had slow roast duck - a recipe. It released much more juice than when roasted at a higher temperature. I was careful to prick only the skin (with a fork, lightly) i.e. not the flesh.

It was good though, i.e. tender flesh, crispy skin. I had it with baked potato, giblet/reduced gravy and string beans lightly cooked.
