Saturday Feb 21 Dinner Plans?

I'm slow roasting a venison roast today. Marinated it last night, threw in some juniper berries and a few raspberries, what the heck. Will roast with white and sweet potatoes and carrots. Will also cook a one pound batch of pasta dressed with pesto and chevre, but will only serve a small amount as a side.

Uncle Bob, we recently finished a bottle of Woodford Reserve Bourbon. so no bourbon on the premises at present, hoping the bottle of Gentleman Jack will do. Will put a splash on the roast too!

What's cooking at your place today?

I'm going to make an orzo/chicken pasta dish and a salad w/goat cheese, dried cranberries, balsamic, roast pecans. Hopefully going to get a bottle of good red wine for later too - not sure what. Need to drag myself out to the store later.

I put the beans and ham hocks in the pot and have them simmering. We'll eat mid afternoon then snack during the movie.

Yes, that is my favourite....after popcorn!

DH switched shifts today so will be home today but tired after an over time shift last night. So, I want to make him a special dinner.

I am thinking salmon with hollandaise, rice, and asparagus. Probably a new coconut pound cake I want to try out to add to my wedding cake repertoire for dessert.

I have a large pot of sauce simmering; will use some of it for lasagna and the rest will go into the freezer for use later.
