Halloween Dinner??

My daughter and her family are coming here for trick or treating and dinner. They do this every year. I'm making a batch of American chop suey as it's a favorite of hers and easy to do.

Also made a new recipe for yellow cake with a chocolate glaze for dessert. I hope my grandson isn't disappointed that it's not a chocolate cake.

What are you eating tonight?

It's our anniversary and in anticipation of seeing our grandchildren garbed up as assorted ghosties and goblins, we'll be dining at home tonight.

Glenn requested steaks, along with those cooked on the grill, there will baked potatoes with assorted add-ins, sauteed onions and mushrooms, a nice red wine and "anniversary" cake for dessert, which is a very much smaller duplicate of our wedding cake.

We're looking forward to it.

Looks like something with ham, potatoes and cheddar cheese.

And maybe eggs.

And leftover chocolate cake.

Vegetarian (or pesco-eggo-tarian??) daughter is home visiting from college for the weekend. She likes my Thai red curry, so I'm thinking I will probably make that with shrimp or cod instead of the usual beef.

Main course = Candy

Sides = Candy

Desert = Candy

Gotta start somewhere on this pile of sweets.

LOL Zagut

I'm having potstickers, jasmine rice, and edamame. Having dinner by 4 so I can be done by the time the little ghosts and goblins start arriving.

And just out of curiosity, I'm going to keep count of how many Elsa's I see. :-)

We had chili dogs. It was quick and could be put down easily to go to the door to pass out candy. I went through 9 bags this year!

Today's photoshoot extravaganza was:

Pork Tenderloin and Mango Chutney with Wild Mushroom Potato Oka Torte

and


Seafood and White Bean Stew (jumbo shrimp and walleye)


The potatoes were fantastic--grated potatoes with cheese, mushrooms, cream,baked in a pie dish...yum, yum, yum. Everything else was delish as well.
