Friday 25th November 2011 - What's for dinner?

Vegetable chilli for us to warm us up! Nothing better than a bowl of veg chilli with some bread to mop it up!

Let me answer for most people - leftovers.

No reason to feel stupid. It might be interesting to see how different folks prepare those leftovers.

Believe it or not but I don't have any leftovers! Unless you count the 2 bitty pieces of pecan pie, the lone sliver pf pumpkin pie and the cup of cheese spread and crackers! Guess I'll have to come up with something. It'll probably be my standby spaghetti. Easy to fix and have a salad with it.

Not enough in the "care package" for a meal here either.......the only thing I hate about not hosting.

Thanks for the idea Jabbur, pasta sounds good.......maybe with meatballs.

Spaghetti is already in the plans for when I tire of Turkey. I bought all the ingredients except the fresh veggies for salad. The bread is in the freezer.Attachment 12467Attachment 12467Attachment 12467

No leftovers here, because we haven't had "our" Thanksgiving dinner yet. I'm making chicken/rice wraps. I guess you could call them burritos. On the side, sour cream and fruit.

I have these dishes from when I used to take Sunday leftovers to work for lunch every day. I took out two and filled the large section of each with sliced turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing, and poured gravy over it. Then I put green bean casserole in one small section, whipped sweet potatoes in the other small section and stuck the two dishes into the freezer. I will probably take one out tomorrow and the another one out one day next week.

Tonight I am having leftover vitello alla pizzaiola with either farfalle or fusilli (I fusilli, oh so silli, I fusilli and witty and gay*), a green salad, and a 2009 Di Majo Norante Sangiovese.
