Dinner: Christmas is too close to Tuesday 11/18/14

Tonight I am going to make myself a baked seasoned chicken thigh along with a baked potato. No sense in wasting all that heat on just the chicken. The thigh is rubbed with Greek olive oil and seasoned with fresh ground pepper and sea salt. The potato will have a small pat of butter and more butter for the skin. I can't leave the skin there and waste it. Too many nutrients.

Boiling up a turnip because DH brought a couple home yesterday. We'll also finish up the pork chops in kraut and apples. There are a few more leftovers in the fridge in case that's not enough.

I think if I cleaned out the fridge, I would have a lot more room. Thanks for the reminder.

So this is the dinner thread? The title confused me.

I think we're going to have breakfast burritos tonight, and some tomato soup.

I like Spam, and found this at the grocery today. Who knew?

This really interests me, K. (I like Spam too). Will have to seek it!

I LOVE Spam!
DH and I just saw the Teriyaki at Wally-World
and I almost bought it.
Sister is a total freak for Spam Musubi,
and begs me to make it for her whenever
we do see each other, which will be next week.
So I figure, I'll make her up a batch just
before we go to Mom's as a 'gift'

I made up a batch of Vanishing Oatmeal Cookie bars with
dried Cherries packed in them

Packed them up a ziptop (I put some of those pillows that are
in the pill bottles to wick away what moisture we have here
in the middle of the desert) and then into a
cute can for next week too.
