Friday's Dinner 12/30

Wow, everyone must be busy today getting ready for tomorrow's New Year's Eve.

Friday is usually pizza night at our house, but since we will order take out tomorrow, we are having soup and grilled cheese sandwiches tonight.

I couldn't find the thread and was just coming to start it and saw you beat me!

I'm making virtini, they are a Lithuanian meat dumpling similar to a pirogi but filled with ground meat (beef) instead of potato or cheeses.

The sides will be steamed cabbage for SO and stewed cabbage for me.

Quoth the chicken, "Fry some more."

Hot turkey sandwich with the last of the Thanksgiving turkey. A side of green beans and some puckery homemade cranberry sauce.

We're doing Chinese take-out. I thought we'd do it a day early. Chinese restaurants are usually very busy on NYE!

Cooking a goose based cassoulet , regretting that I do not have any Chanterelles to saute for a side dish; accompanied by a red lettuce and young greens with olives, grated baby turnip and red radish salad, dressed with a blue cheese-sour cream dressing. AKA- a heart attack special. Hope a little affordable Froggy table red wine will be an antidote.

Doing beef stroganoff tonight. I'll do a nice salad with it and maybe some biscuits too. I'm sort of envious about the chinese take out though.
