Dinner Sunday 12th November.

Its really autumnal here today. The bells from the church in the valley below our house are ringing for Remebrance Sunday and the flag is fluttering.

We are having coq au vin (inspired by a poster yesterday, lol) and cabbage. I don't know if we will do much else food wise today.

I've been watching the Cenotaph service - very moving as it is every year. I do not believe in glorifying war, but we need to remember with admiration, those who gave (and are still giving) their lives in the cause of freedom.

Roast beef, yorkshire pud and all the trimmings for luch here today.

Just read the news that two crew members died after waves hit a Singapore-registered vessel off northeast Scotland. The winds must be very strong over there.

Over here, it's cloudy and a bit cold and the temperature is expected to drop tonight, tomorrow and the day after.

Still suffering from the aftermath of a cold, I prepared a light cabbage soup with garlic bread for lunch.

We're having Indian, chicken tikka masala, basmati rice with lime and mint, and samosas made with a variation of the traditional filling. I'll stuff these with ground chicken and vegetables.

We're having a spiral cut ham, basted with butter,brown sugar and a tiny pinch of clove. Scalloped potatoes made with cream,butter,asiago,parmesan,provolone cheese and sauteed onion, then baked. Artichokes my usual way, green salad, rolls and honey. For starters crab stuffed mushrooms and Margarita guacamole with pita chips. I made a better than S*x cake for my son-in-law who has the world's biggest sweet tooth ..That's it!

I am having one of my favorite, but simplest dinners: fried rice. It is practically a meal in itself. I might have some stir-fried vegetables on the side or miso soup.

We're having football nibblies all day and then leftovers if that isn't enough for everyone.

I have some thin chicken cutlets & I can't decide if I want to pan fry or grill them. Don't know what we'll have with them yet.
