I have a bunch of veggies. I think I want to make some sort of Asian Salad, maybe put a little bit of noodles in it and/or shrimp. Katie, I'm just starting a big pot of marinara so I can have some in the freezer during the busy Holidays coming up. I can't wait for the smell to start bubbling up!

We went out to lunch after church with two other couples. I had 1/2 salad since I'm making most of our dinner to celebrate birthdays for my dd and sil. I'm roasting a pork tenderloin, sweet potato casserole, roast asparagus, and some biscuits I found in my grocery freezer, Mrs B's tea biscuits. Mrs. B was my mother's neighbor until a few months ago when she retired. The biscuits are delicious - about half the size of a normal biscuit. DD is bringing a salad and a yellow cake with chocolate buttercream icing.

I am making a Hot and Sour Shrimp soup that I found on here. I am making Monster Cookies for dessert.

Today is a lazy day - Mom wants a chili-dog with lots of grated cheddar and french fries (she loves those frozen oven-fried things) and a 7-Up. I'm going to "nuke" some leftover pizza and have a couple of cold brews while watching the Cowboys game.

I'm having the turkey tenderloin that I've tried to re-season in a ton of stuff, with carrots, onions and taters.

Thinking about getting the sourdough starter going for this season's batch of friendship bread.

I made a roast chicken stuffed with herbs and lemon, with roast veggies, dressing and green beans. The house smells like thanksgiving morning......

Pizza Pie for us. I usually use pre-made refrigerated biscuits for the crust, but since I couldn't find them I made some from scratch and they turned out even better than expected.

i had to redeem myself after yersterday's disastrous lentil, chicken and sausage dish, so i went with a tnt, shrimp and scallops in a spicey/garlic
tomato sauce, served over whole wheat cappelini.

i felt much better tonight, having made something tasty for dinner. i made the sauce from about a dozen of the last tomatoes from my garden, first browning a whole head of garlic and a large diced shallot, then in went the peeled/seeded/chopped tomatoes, and finally some basil.
when the sauce started to thicken, i blended in a heaping tbsp or two of paste to get the consistency right, then tossed in a pound each of scallops and cleaned shrimp. it was delish.

it was light years better than my lentil, chicken, and sausage crapola. it started out ok, but i tried to go too far and ruined it. after adding some jamaican curry powder, i wanted to add some depth and intended to put in just a pinch of cinnamon. at the critical moment, i was distracted and ended up dumping in about a tbsp.
yuk! the cinnamon took over the whole dish, so i tried to bury it somewhat by adding other spices, which only made matters worse.

so, like a trooper, i dumped in a load of hot red pepper flakes and habaneros, and i'll eat the now throat searing dish by myself.

this whole week.
