Dinner, Saturday Nov 8th

Wow, I haven't started this for ages, but of course I haven't cooked a whole lot of dinners in ages either!

We are starting up our regular once a month dinner and a movie night with some friends. It is our turn to do dinner and they pick the movie.

I have some Italian sausage, bratwurst, chorizo and calebrese which I am going to cut up and saute together with onions and garlic. I am going to make a sauce (not exactly sure what kind yet, toss with some penne, put it all in a casserole and cover with cheese.

Sides will be Caear Salad and garlic bread. I also have a couple of appetizers - my own spinach dip on toast rounds and lime shrimp skewers. They are doing dessert.

Somebody besides me gets to start it!!! Yay Laurie!!!

I'm not sure what I am having yet... I got some fennel that I want to try and cook for tonight, but need some ideas of what meat would go best with it. Getting a shimpment of meat here in an hour of two with some lamb stew meat, not sure what else I got coming. What can I do with lamb stew meat and fennel???

Wow, that sounds good, Laurie! All that meat in a big casserole...

I'm going to have the crab legs I didn't get to last night. I have a little broccoli left over. I just need to come up with something else, too....

I am making stuffed cabbage (ground pork/rice/onions/seasonings), will serve them with mashed potatoes. Dessert is still up in the air, maybe Boston cream pie, maybe peach cobbler.

Potato Leek and Bacon soup, in a big old bread bowl.
My first encounter with any sort of tater soup, which I have only
liked once.
I'm increasing the bacon!
