TGIFriday, December 9 What's Cooking?

It's another overcast day so I'm making a big pot of 15 bean soup. I found to my horror that I had NO smoked meat bones to add, so I went hunting in the freezer and found Andouille and a bit of chorizo, plus some ground sausage so it will be plenty meaty.

What's cooking (or not) for you today?

SO is working even later tonight so she'll grab something there. I'll make myself another Cuban sandwich tonight as I still have plenty of fixins' leftover from yesterday.

I made the Cubans last night with ciabatta sandwich rolls I picked up at the supermarket bakery. They worked out great. Nice and crusty after the panini press.

Must be soup night. I made a pot of potato/bacon/chicken corn chowder last night and its in the fridge for everyone's dinner tonight. Everyone is running in a different direction tonight. Bugs and I will be working, Madeleine is off to a party/sleepover, and Ken will be all by himself.

Do you count out the beans or just estimate?

Leftovers here. I have a concert at 8:00pm tonight which means I need to leave home around 5:30pm to get there and rehearse. There's mac-n-cheese, taco meat and shells, cold cuts for sandwiches and ham and beans with corn bread. Almost forgot there's pizza too.

The dinner plans for tonight include baked orange roughy, fried green tomatoes, corn-on-the-cob (frozen from this season's garden), iced tea and an annual holiday indulgence(?), Little Debbie Christmas tree cakes.

Hmmmm. Not really sure yet. I will be pretty busy until about 9 o'clock. May have something small and quick like a grilled Mozzerella with Calabrese sausage sandwhich. Cold beer of course. After all, its Friday night and I don't have to play ....

thawing a pork loin chop, baked sweet potato , a veggie pack that has asparagus in it, forget what else is in there. so proud of myself, not snacking or dessert after dinner.

I have to do something with the leftover buttermilk chicken...thinking stir fry or a chicken pot pie.
