Dinner for Friday, 28 December.

dw and my boy are going to her friend's house for a belated christmas, so the kitchen is mine when i get home. i have a pound of shrimp that needs to be cooked, so it'll either be fra diavolo or al ajillo, or if i get motivated, shrimp and mushroom risotto.
gotta pick up some fresh, crusty semolina bread in any case.

whatcha cookin' or eatin' tonight?

no soup 'cause DH had a big bowlful of potato soup for lunch....so, my version of southern fried chicken, baked stuffed potatoes(cheddar cheese) and coleslaw, I always put a handful of raisins in it. At the supermarket today there were little brandy plum puddings on sale, along with brandy butter....so that'll be dessert.

well, it WAS going to be a casserole of ham, potatoes, corn with a white sauce and later cheese, but a friend called and invited us over, so now it is..

lamb chops and whatever else he fixes. I'm taking some fresh dinner rolls, some peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies I made yesterday, and a couple of grapefruit and butternut squashes

I was going to do sauted mushrooms in a garlic sherry cream sauce on toast but at 8:45pm, I just could no longer be bothered so I grabbed the leftover cooked vegetable salad in pesto aioli and had that with shredded ham. Turned out to be a very tasty mix when cold!

Too many restaurants, not enough time...
