mmmmm sounds yummy Barb L! I am butter/ herb roasting a chicken, along with corn bread stuffing, mashed potatoes, peas, and pumpkin pie! And maybe mac and cheese. I need to quit menu planning when I am hungry!

Your shrimp sounds good too, I forgot I bought some the other day! I might have to throw some in around the chicken the last few minutes of baking for me!

Barb L, I love cheese mac! as does the DW. and although it may go against the grain on a cooking forum I like KD, sadly you can`t buy it here though :(

Gunpowder smoked of course!

We had lunch instead of supper again (the joys of staying with retired parents and not cooking for husbands, or kids I guess, lol).

We started with a Thai inspired chicken soup, followed by a plate of romaine dressed with a super, super EVOO, mixed Italian hams and breads with a duck pate , and then CliveB's jaggery and orange roast pork which we ate with some very, very late beans. I made some creme caramel but we were stuffed by then. Tonight I am looking at some nice cheeses and an apple. I also got a nice gift of some prune d'Agen, which I my favourite treats in the whole world, better than chocolate, so I dare say I'll eat a couple of these plump expensive little devils. ;)

Looks like pork tenderloin in the cast iron pan, finished in the oven. Pan sauce and seasoning yet to be determined. Leftover Basmati rice reheated in the pan after the sauce is done, w/ some kind of veg. added. Leftover braised cabbage.

Well, since I am finally fixing something (Sundays are tailgate days) at home, it will be venison stew in a cranberry red wine sauce/gravy. Probably egg noodles or smashed potatoes.

Meatloaf, mashed potatoes with butter on them. For a vegetable it's corn and for dessert it pumpkin cake.

My brother is clearing out his freezer in preparation for moving. He gave me a lamb shank which is cryovac'd in some sort of gravy (he says it's mint sauce with rosemary) I love lamb shanks, not all that fond of mint sauce and can't quite imagine the two (mint & rosemary) together. But maybe I'll give this thing a try. He also gave me a packet of instant mashed potatoes to go with it! Ahem, I have real potatoes and actually prefer baked, thanks!

I made a huge pot of beef stew this morning so Lou could bring some back to Philly. At some point in time today, I'll make a pot of noodles to serve with the stew. There is still some brioche left and about a dozen creme puffs left.

No wine though....can't ever seem to have any wine leftover....

How can we sleep while our beds are burning???
