Dinner, Saturday Dec. 20th

just a few days to go until christmas
you all prepared or don't you have time to cook anymore?

I'll do myself some Geschnetzeltes Zurich Style, but use beef instead of veal.
Not sure if I'll really do traditional roesti with it or just cook some rice..

Not sure what I'll have. About mid-afternoon I'll drive the 50 miles to my youngest brother's house. I'm going to see him perform in the evening production of A Christmas Story for his community theater. We may go somewhere for a bite after the show.

I already put a roast in the crockpot. May baked some cookies when the oven is done cleaning itself!

Some friends are having a sushi party tonight, so that's what we're having It will all be homemade there at their place. I'm bringing a Japanese shrimp-cucumber-noodle salad with rice-wine vinaigrette.

I just remembered why I don't like to use the crockpot when I am home all day. By the time dinner is ready I will be sick of smelling it. It is much better to walk in after work to find the aroma.

we are going to a pizza pot luck tonight. It is up to us as to how we accomplish it. I am partially baking the pizza at home and will finish baking it at the party. It's looking like a goat pizza. Will have chevon sausage and three goat cheeses; mozz, chevre and ricotta. And I probably won't be able to resist a sprinkling of parmesan..
