Saturday's House Special 1-11-14

We are making some fresh mozzarella and ricotta. First time I've ever bought raw milk. Man the cream floating on top! So dinner will be eggplant using the fresh mozzarella.

As many of my generation will remember, that is how we always got our milk. It wasn't homogenized then. Your mother did the homogenizing by shaking it before she opened the glass bottle.

We're meeting with our dinner group tonight. Usually we do some sort of foodie theme, but tonight the theme is "old school" foods. The couple that's hosting is making beef tenderloin with baked potato. I'm in charge of the salad, so I'm bringing a wedge salad with bacon, tomatoes, and homemade buttermilk blue cheese dressing.

I've got some bacon wrapped pork tenderloins that I'll broil with mashed potatoes and broccoli.

I've got a 12-lb turkey roasting in the oven, wild rice stuffing ready to go in, two types of coleslaw (special request by one of the guests and the DH's favorite coleslaw), relish tray, dinner rolls, steamed green beans, giblet gravy, mashed potatoes, rutabaga-carrot mash (another must have for one of the guests), cranberry sauce, and relish tray. Dessert is my grandma's fudge cake with candy cane ice cream.

Was going to make egg foo yung, but we're out of bean sprouts and the roads are still really slippery. So a stir fry of some sort.
