Well, ya' did it like a pro!!!!

I think I might be making some potato soup - with pancetta or bacon, and maybe some leaks and kale too! Or maybe cauliflower soup now that I think about it - I think my husband requested that this week.

Was going to making spaghetti, but decided on leftovers - will make ground round patties, W/portobella and onion gravy, smashed potatoes, corn, coleslaw and rolls.

Cornish hens glazed with orange, sherry and allspice. Wild rice with toasted almonds, peas as sides. Peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream for dessert.

I'm making chicken saltimbocca (chicken cutlets sauteed with prosciutto and sage) from this month's Cook's Illustrated, along with roasted mixed fingerling potatoes with sage and thyme and a green salad.

Three kinds of pizza -
one with roma tomato slices, fresh mozzarella and basil leaves
one with oven roasted mushrooms, pomodoro sauce, mozzarella and fontina
and the last with roasted sausage, pomodoro sauce, mozzarella cheese and two oven poached eggs.

The eggs get placed about 7 minutes before the pizza is finished. It's magnificent.

The wine is from southern italy.

Vera, I ditto that, your pizzas sound real good!

I was planning on some homemade mozzarella from local italian market, Uncle Bob's dressing, fresh bread, with a basil leaf and roma tomato - yum! However, between my son being sick AGAIN and me starting with a sore throat and body aches, I think this glass of merlot will do it.

I was putting together a plan for stuffed flounder fillets, but DH is sick as a dog with a cold or the flu, and doesn't feel like eating much of anything, so I'm going to hold off on that until tomorrow.

It's going to be a C's Chunky Chicken and Noodle Soup and grilled cheese sandwich night, instead.

My DH is cooking dinner tonight! He's making eggplant parmesan & a spinach salad. I hope he'll do the dishes too! Then it would be a real night off!
