"Halloween Monday" 31st October What Are You Cooking?

Happy Halloween everyone!

So what's on the menu today?

I'm making a tomato soup for dinner, and making a tomato sauce to use throughout the week. (I swear I'm not obsessed with tomatoes!!!)

I'm going to roast the bones from Sunday's turkey. And then I'm going to try the turkey stew recipe that was posted. But tonight, I'll be eating leftover turkey, cooking the stew during off-peak electricity hours (this commitment to be more conscious of when I use power is getting to be a real PAIN), especially if I have a busy weekend and can't spend it prepping stuff for the week.

Ooo do you mean the spiced turkey stew I posted? If so, please let me know what you think of it!

Yup--and I found cranberry sauce in the freezer so I can make it true to how you posted it--except I am making stock first.

I'm going to break out the meat slicer and shave the leftover prime rib from Saturday. I will also pick up some sub rolls, Cheese Whiz and saute some onions. So it's Philly Cheesesteak "wit" for me tonight.

Not really sure what I'll be cooking tonight! Still tired from the weekend. Went to 3 Fall Festivals where the temperature got down to 50. And like every year at winter I freeze, so unfortunately I'm feeling puny.

Maybe throw some BBQ meatballs in the crockpot. And serve with mashed potatoes :)

I have leftovers from last night. So, I'm going to add some vegetables to the meatballs-n-sauce and have it over mashed potatoes..... or I'll have the vegetables on the side.

coming back to add... I might even turn the leftovers into a cottage pie type of thing, by mixing the vegetables with the meatballs/sauce. I'll thicken the sauce by adding a slurry. If it's still not thick enough for a pie, I'll add a few fine breadcrumbs. I've done that before, and the pie turned out great.

Sweet Italian sausage with peppers and onion sandwiches for dinner tonight.
Something quick and easy as I have a pear upside down cake I'm going to make.

That sounds good! mmm
I love pears. I caught a cooking show the other day, "Caprial and John's Kitchen," and they were making some kind of dessert with pears and chocolate. I couldn't stick around long enough to see exactly what it was. It looked goooood, though.
