We have an Open House again this Sunday afternoon,
(keep your fingers crossed everybody that we sell this place, we really want to move already!)
so I put on a pot of what I call Gumbo.
Real easy:
Diced-b/s Chicken, Kielbasa, onions, carrots, celery, red bell peppers
a can of tomatoes, some minced garlic, frozen chopped okra, s&p, thyme, parsley, cayenne, bay leaves and homemade chicken broth
I left it on a real slow simmer so that the house smells great when folks walk in, I love that reaction, "WOW, what smells so good in here?" oh and I've got two cakes cooling on the back counter, so...

What's on your back burner today?

We are not yet tired of open faced turkey sandwiches with mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy and a dab of cranberry sauce. So that is what we will have!

I took some round steak and seasoned it last night. Today I cut it into pieces and browned both sides. Then I simmered it in beef broth until tender. I made the broth into gravy and served it over oven baked rice with Brussels sprouts.

We've eaten all the mooched leftovers from our feast at Glenn's daughter's so we're reduced to preparing civilian food.

It's getting colder today and is rainy, rainy, rainy. A good day for roast beef, gravy, mashed potatoes, peas and homemade raspberry pie. That should just about do it.

I'm going to make a copycat recipe of Olive Garden's Chicken and Gnocchi Soup with leftover turkey and turkey stock. I'm also going to use rainbow chard and spinach from the garden. If I have the energy, I'll make some biscuits for dipping.

Baked Bbq sauced chicken wings. Homemade Bbq sauce-- ketchup, minced onion, brown sugar, woostershire, cider vinegar, chile pepper. Then I got lazy-- Souffers Mac 'n cheese. Couldn't waste that extra oven space.

I NEED a salad, since we've been meat-and-starching it for three straight days. Then I'll use up the last of the turkey making Kentucky Hot Brown sandwiches.

Andy, pork tenderloin was my plan for tomorrow. Glad to see your post since it reminds me to take one from the freezer. Thanks.

Greek inspired night. Daughter, SIL, and grandbaby were over for dinner. Chicken souvlaki, herbed orzo, roasted brussel sprouts, tzatziki, and dutch oven rosemary / olive oil bread (at least for the adults).
