We're having Crock-pot Sweet and Sour Chicken, except I'm cooking it in the oven.
I'll serve it with some kind of rice...probably instant.

We get by with a little help from our friends

I've never made this and have not looked up a recipe so if I'm doing it wrong don't anyone tell me - it's too late!

I sauteed some leeks and portobello mushrooms, floured/seasoned cut up chuck roast and browned, put all back in the pressure cooker and covered with stout beer - then it will be mashed potatoes and a wedge of iceberg lettuce with bacon, chives, and homemade blue cheese dressing.

(But if anyone has some tips for this for future reference it sure would be appreciated. I expect the stout will turn fairly sweet. All in all it can't be bad, can it????) I figure I'll pressure cook it for 45 minutes and see how the beef is and cook more if necessary.

Everyone's meals sound sooooo good!!!! But they always do.

OK, this was an interesting dinner prep. I screwed up six ways from Sunday.

The brandied chicken was going just fine until I reached into the liquor cabinet for the brandy...yep you guessed it. NONE THERE! Swearing a blue streak I decided to toss some rum and port on the chicken to flame it. Ya ya ya, I can hear you all gagging. I'll let you know how it tastes later. I wasn't about to go out and get brandy with the piles of snow we've got right now. The news was awash with the huge pile ups we've had yesterday and today. Sigh. So, chicken went in the oven and I was about to finish the shrimp bisque that was to be our starter. *Forehead slap* I dumped ALL of the cream into the brandied chicken sauce instead of saving half of it for the bisque!!!! ARGH!!! I just have to laugh at myself. So, no bisque tonight. It will be just the chicken, some steamed yellow beans, pasta and a salad. And a BIG glass of wine!
