Sunday dinner-Oct. 29, 07

Sunday again
My first do it on my own meal in some time. I have to say I'm so happy I can do this today..
We will start with the crab french bread appy, then move on to pulled pork bbq sandwiches, baked beans, a plate of melons, cole slaw, and for me and youngest daughter roasted brussels sprouts..I wanted some dessert for everyone but didn't want to run out of gas and have to just do nothing so I'm making a Paula Dean sweet..Cresent rolls, put two together, seal edges, then spread with a mix of cream cheese,vanilla,chopped almonds and powdered sugar, roll, refrigerate about an hour, then cut in four pieces and bake, glaze them and sprinkle with more chopped toasted almonds. Easy but still a sweet also have some vanilla gelato we picked up at the store..Wish me luck, it's been awhile...

I`ve made a beef and onion soup, and I`m serving it with a sort of bread that doesn`t have an official name as such or yet, here: http://www.discusscooking.com/forums...ame-39466.html
it tastes good though and is ideal for dipping in soup :)

I'm making my favorite soup again, Roasted Sweet Potato & Red Pepper. I'm also making the filling for taco salad using Quorn mince, taco seasoning, mushrooms, peppers & tomatoes. I'll have that for lunch at work this week.

The boy is making pasta with ground turkey, mushrooms, onion, peppers, and tomatoes served over whole wheat pasta.

Had roast pork (crackling came out like flubber though ) with roast pots, cabbage and leeks. Made a simple apple sauce to go with it (well, just an apple lightly poached in water).

The crackling thing really annoys me - sometimes it comes out great, other times it's just soggy. I know the main requirement is a joint with a good layer of fat but even that doesn't seem to make it work 100%.

I WILL crack this!!

Another vote for pork roast. We're having pork roast slathered with a mixture of whole-berry cranberry sauce, cranberry juice, garlic, sugar, thin lemon slices, dry mustard, candied ginger, salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cooking it long and slow. Not sure what sides we'll have, but I've got some dough ready for cloverleaf rolls. The house smells heavenly.
