TGIF! What's for Dinner, 12/21?

I'm making enchiladas with shredded chicken, black beans, tomatoes and lots of cheese. We'll have vanilla ice cream with fresh pineapple for dessert. And as long as I can stay up later than dd , DH and I will have wine and some of the Christmas goodies he's gotten from work while I wrap presents.

What's going on in your kitchen tonight?

I'm going to make a pizza with the crust made out of the newer no knead bread recipe. This is the recipe with 6 cups flour and 1 1/2 T. yeast and salt. Am putting san marzano pizza sauce, sausage, onions, green peppers and mozz cheese on top

I will be experimenting as well. Making spaghetti w/meatballs, mushrooms, Italian sausage and pork loin. Am grilling everything over charcoal before adding it to the sauce. Even roasting the tomatoes for the sauce over the coals. I am thinking it will be some kinda tasty!

We are celebrating today. The meal of choice tonight is spaghetti. For dessert I made a chocolate mousse layer cake and raspberry ice cream. I love that ice cream, yum!

Very simple tonight. Split pea soup with ham. Lots of different Christmas goodies for dessert.

I'm tired from candy making and baking all day, so my boyfriend is taking me out for supper. I should have gotten more done before today--with four families to see for Christmas, our festivities begin tomorrow--but what's done is done and I only have one or two more batches of cookies to make.
