The cold is definitely getting better, but appetite hasn't really come back.

A review of the freezer gave me a container of baby limas that came out especially good as well as a container of split peas that also was exceptional. Both used the smoked turkey neck bones. Not much meat, but a great flavor, kind of like char sui - same red color too.

I took them both out to thaw because I think the next step up from soups will be beans, plus I still have chicken breast to make a sandwich or two.

I still have lots of leftovers to use up, so my grocery list for tomorrow is geared to two more fudges, butterscotch/pecan and Reese's peanut butter, both sandwiched between layers of chocolate. Guess I'd better add another casserole dish to my list!

Then I would use a cornbread stuffing mix. It tastes really good with pork and being rolled inside, I think the flavors would really compliment.

You can always add to the stuffing too. I like the dried scallions as a subtle change, also a little browned/drained chorizo. I get chorizo in a 8 oz. tube and cut it into quarters before freezing. One quarter is a lot of flavor.

Does anyone have any good suggestions for a stuffing for a pork roulade? I want to try something new. I have done it stuffed with dried apricots and prunes.

Soak some dried cherries or cranberries in booze, mix in some chopped walnuts and feta or goat cheese.

You can also add shredded cheese and herbs of your choice to the stuffing.

That sounds wonderful. It will have to wait for another day. Of your stuffing suggestions I only have the walnuts

Thank you merstar!! It was yummy! But next time I will probably add some cheese maybe a garlic and herb cheese spread like Allouette.

My pea soup is simmering and making the house smell wonderful!!
