Dinner Sunday 20th January

Tonight we are having a slow cooker spicy chicken in peanut sauce on a bed of cous cous

It will be the first time we have had cous cous, so this will be interesting

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt

Cous cous is nice it just needs lots of flavouring as its bland . Best cooked in a chicken or veg stock and add fresh lemon at the end .

Today am making Mechoui lamb, marinated it overnight and now it will slow cook all day . Having it later with pitta breads, a sour cream dip and a scattering of pomegranate seeds .

church, then the boy and i are going to play hockey while dw goes to the gym then food shopping.

dinner will be whatever she brings home. i was thinking of asking her to buy some chicken so i could make my limey thymey chicken picatta (the recipe is posted here a while back), or maybe savory crepes.

We're having Cornish Pasties with mash and gravy at hubby's request.

We'll have scrambled eggs and sausage for brunch then we're meeting the future in-laws at Applebee's for dinner to go over guest lists and wedding plans with the happy couple. Guess this is really happening! I was beginning to think neither of my guys would find a nice girl. I'm grateful that he found someone he loves and loves him back and that I like her too!
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Football watching foods for dinner tonight. While I'll watch the 3:00 game, our big game is @ 6:30PM.

Received the latest issue of Southern Living in yesterday's mail. I just drooled over a recipe for oxtails listed on page 116. Knowing that I had a bag of them in the freezer, that's what we're having tonight.

The oxtails are slow-cooked in the crock-pot with lots of veggies, fresh herbs, tomato paste and red wine, then served over rice. We'll have that and the rest of the bottle of red wine that I opened to cook with.

I just took out a huge gubana from the oven. That'll be dessert.

Must be a slow cooker kind of day. We have an 8 lb. spiral cut ham that has been taking up too much space in the fridge (Christmas freebie from DH's work) that I think I will do in the Nesco. Way too much for 2, so will package and freeze a bunch, of course saving the bone for later pea or bean soup. Sides TBD.
