Dinner tonight? What's cookin 12/21?

Morning......
Anyone cooking today? I have many things to do around here, rest, relax, stay calm (aren't any planned events).

I'm thinkin "a warm the cockles of your heart" soup is in order. Got it. Since I broke down and bought many potatoes, I think I'll do the Restaurant quality baked potato soup recipe I found online years ago. It's got all the ingredients of super stuffed baked potatoes but in soup form. With that the bread we had last night toasted in the oven with butter and parmesan cheese on top. Raw vegetables in olive oil and vinegar with s&p will be the veggie. DH eats so many more of them that way. DH has been asking for home made apple sauce so I can do that too. It's easy enough.

Enjoy your day...and by the way, what are you making for dinner?

I have to go to the store later... I think I'll pick up a *GASP* frozen pizza.

we're going to try to take my son for pics with a mall santa tonight. 2nd attempt. the first one scared me, umm, i mean my boy... yeah, that's it, my son was scared... and i, he started crying, so we'll try again tonight.

then dw walks me thru the mall, and points at things that she might want for christmas (like a good hunting dog). it's all the growling and scratching that freaks out the store clerks.

so, since we'll be getting home late, i'm lobbying for sushi/sashimi take out.

I have no idea...

I'm likely on my own for dinner, but with all the things I need to get done (NOT Christmas shopping, that's done!), I'm likely looking at yet another Wednesday without dinner.

(I do have shopping to do, but it's grocery store, hardware store type shopping. Gotta get ready for the inbound relatives...)

I have ham and leftover white rice that I need to use. Throw in some pea pods, scrambled eggs, etc. and fried rice is what I am having for dinner tonight. Not sure what else to have maybe some miso or egg drop soup.

Tonight we are cleaning out the fridge to make room for the acres of food I am buying tomorrow after work in anticipation of the arrival of the in-laws.
