It's Monday 11-19, what's on your dinner table?

Trying to come up with a dinner plan.

DH asked me to order for his mom's dinner for TG. He'll pick it up and take it there for her and that's where he'll be on TG. Must do that, DD said Costco is great for their TG take out dinners all wrapped up, who knew?

You know Chinese lemon chicken over rice that you get at a Chinese restaurant? It's kinda like lemon meringue pie filling over chicken. I'm doing a version of that for dinner but will use turkey and I'll wrap it up in home made crepes. Thinking of a light turkey bacon glaze, a little dribble of that over the top of each one. I like Kades idea of RR's garbanzo beans in the skillet and the puff pastry wrapped olives too. Since I have it all on hand in my house, why not. I'll make the crepe batter now, do the turkey lemon filling, shred up the turkey, make the glaze, do the garbanzo's and by the time he calls on his way home, I'll assemble it all for when he walks in the door. He'll get a hot buttered rum coffee when he walks in the door with fresh whipped cream, that oughtta make him happy he's home, eh?

So what's anyone else doing for dinner? To Merr, welcome!

Eating light and from the freezer. I've been busy baking/cooking for the holiday and don't want to cook more tonight. We'll have cream of zucchini soup, salad and rustic bread.

I have a meeting tonight and DH wants to try scalloped ham and potatoes again (the batch I made last week didn't have the best sauce - tasted good but kinda runny), so he's making it this time. Buttered peas on the side.

Tonight's dinner was actually a free for all: the adults had chicken and potato salad, the kids made sandwiches, and my grandparents had root veggies with beans. Everyone cooked what they wanted.

My dinner ended up being chicken with coleslaw and mashed potato with gravy. Followed by one Lindt blue ball.
