TGIFriday 10/14/2011 What's on the menu?

Smoked ham steak Undecided how it will be cooked but am leaning towards split pea soup on another dreary storm threatening day.

Any plans?

Bacon wrapped chicken tenders pacanis. And take pictures.

Dinner tonight is once again going to be hit and run dang it. Oldest daughter works at 6, youngest is in a volleyball tourney til who knows when. BAH! I miss all of us sitting down to dinner together.

I think I'll make a pot of chili or something like that so everyone can have something hearty whenever they are home.

I'm defrosting some chicken thighs. If that gives you an idea, share it with me as I am stuck on what to do with them.

Andy, there was a really good chicken thigh recipe over in Ethnic. lemme go see if I can find it for you.

found it...
Czech Chicken and Sauerkraut

8 Chicken thighs
1 Tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. margarine (or butter)

1/2 cup chopped onion
1 lb sauerkraut (try to find Polish or German kraut in a jar.)
1/2 cup water
2 Tbsp. caraway seeds
dash of pepper
1/4 cup brown sugar
several parboiled/steamed potato chunks, drained
2 cooking apples, cored and cut into thin wedges

Sprinkle chicken with salt and brown on both sides in margarine/butter in a large skillet. Add onion and cook until tender. Sprinkle some caraway seeds over the chicken as it browns. Mix together the kraut, water, caraway, pepper, brown sugar and potatoes. Add to chicken and onion and mix well. Cover skillet and cook 10-12 minutes or until chicken is tender.

I'd be doing coq au vin with the thighs. Hmm...I could still do that! Shopping time!

hmmm, bacon something... That's always a possibility

I don't feel like defrosting anything that takes time, so I'm pretty much open to whatever I can find at the local grocery store if I go out.
I had chicken last night and earlier in the week, but that doesn't necessarily rule it out again. As long as it's cooked differently, what the hey, right?
Shrimp defrosts quickly though, and I've got a lot of shrimp in the freezer. Come to think of it, I've got some crab legs in there, too. And it is Friday... maybe some shrimp carbonara and crab legs? That's a possibility.

I'm kind of in the mood for some kind of casserole though, lol.

how about a shrimp gumbo, pac?

dinner tonight for us will be whatever is served at monster golf. it's a monster themed, black lighted, indoor miniature golf course.

really, it's a birthday party for dw's best friend's kids: an 8 year old girl, and a 4 year old boy, both cute as buttons who are little tornadoes. fun little kids.

the 8 year old is the only girl i've ever known who has her own pink, .22 cal. rifle, lol.

i hope dinner isn't carboard pizza and fried to death, mechanically seperated chicken fingers.
