Dinner Wednesday 11-27-2013 ~ To Fast, or Stretch the Tummy...

T'was the day before Turkey Day, I looked at my thighs.
"I have to stop eating and get rid of you guys!"
But tomorrow is feast day, so what should I do?
I'm make a big salad and a steaming bowl of so(up).

*****

Using some leftover rotisserie chicken, I'll make a small pot of Asian Noodle Soup. I'll make two salads full of good things (celery, carrots, mushrooms, radish, green and black olives, tomato, cheese, hard-cooked eggs). To mine I'll add some leftover chicken and ham to make a chef's salad. Himself likes his meat in a sandwich so I'll Panini up one or both meats for him. If the temperature drops like they're saying (we're in the upper 50s now, but not for long) we'll finish off a bottle of Port from what's left after making the cranberry relish.

Just how much of that port went into the relish?

I might fix wings for dinner. I haven't had them in a while.

Trying to keep the refrigerator as uncluttered as possible so it'll be leftover lasagna and homemade baguette turned into garlic bread. Might have to try some of the pumpkin pie for dessert.

I cheated and used a commercially-made pie crust and the pumpkin pie recipe made so much filling that it filled two pie shells, which gave us a "bonus" pie. Wouldn't it be a shame to let it go to waste (waist)?

Been tasting dressing, gravy, and cranberry orange sauce that will be my contribution to tomorrow's dinner. Not so hungry right now.

We're going light on Turkey Eve. Tonight we're having quesadillas with chicken, balsamic onions, and goat cheese.

I ground some beef from "that cow". I used the new food processor. Wow! That was a lot quicker than the meat grinder for ~700 grams of beef. I was worried that the texture would be weird, but it was fine.

I used the aforementioned ground beef to make meatloaf. We had the meatloaf with leftover mashed potatoes and gravy, and I made cole slaw. I used some of the leftover, bland ranch dressing along with mayo and a splash of cider vinegar on the cole slaw. It was all quite good. The meatloaf wasn't as "juicy" as usual, but the beef that I ground was quite lean, ~5% fat.

I got caught up in a movie and didn't get to putting the wings on the grill, so I'm making a couple BLT's right now watching the end of K-PAX. That movie I can miss a few parts.
