Columbus day, Canadian Thanksgiving, or whatcha eating 10-13-14?

i figure since today is columbus day in america, and canadian thanksgiving, we should get the ball rolling on the dinner thread.

i have to work until 8a, but after a short sleep i'm going to get up and teach my boy how to make chilli. with both beans and meat.
if there's time, we're going to make ghost chili sauce and craig's brother's pepper jelly.

then i plan on going to a store that is having a columbus day sale, walk in and take what i want claiming i discovered it. then i'll tell them that canadians actually invented the holiday and escape.




lol, sooooo, what's on your table this october 13th, 2014?

Wow, Bucky T, you are really eager for dinner! When you posted it was still Sunday here!

I am getting spoiled today. I had to cancel the dinner with the kids and their Mom because my in-laws are going away soon and want TB to fix their TV and for me to go online to book their trip home at Christmas from Palm Springs (they are snowbirds!).

So, we are picking Chinese food up on our way there.

Then the mom called and asked if we could come for lunch and eat the turkey leftovers from her dinner today with her parents. She kept saying "the kids would love to see you", but I could tell in her heart she really wanted to cook dinner for us, even if it IS leftovers. I'm not eating turkey, but there are a lot of veggies and I am taking a salad.

I went to the store this morning and got some bone in pork chops, so I am making breaded pork chops cooked in the oven. Along with those we will have mashed potatoes and stewed tomatoes. For dessert it's going to be cherry pie.

We're doing leftovers here too. Can't decide between turkey a la king or hot turkey sandwiches.

There are new and massive roadworks between me and my job - causing immense tailbacks and aggravation all round.

What does this have to do with my meal today you may be wondering?

Well, sitting in an interminable queue this morning I was determined to find another route to bypass the roadworks (which are going to be there for the next YEAR!!)

So, I discussed the options with a couple of people today and then this evening, I set off to investigate a rural route with my brother Ollie, which just happened to end up outside an "award winning" fish and chip shop. Convenient, no?
