Thursday Supper for a very raw cold day! 11/6/14

I bought a fresh shoulder. It has been raining off and on, blustery winds blowing here and there. A perfect day for a nice sit down dinner with veggies and gravy to go with the roast. And since I have time, I think I will make some chocolate pudding from scratch.

But in the meantime, I have to run downstairs to get the laundry out of the dryer. Then to the stove!

I stopped at the fish counter over lunch and picked up some goodies, including Icelandic Cod, Salmon, and Mahi Mahi. So we'll probably have one of those tonight and the rest will go in the freezer.

I have a late afternoon eye appointment in town so we'll be going to our favorite Chinese restaurant for an early dinner. We love their roasted duck and salt n pepper calamari.

I made some nice mushroom rice soup, and we have leftover spaghetti and sauce, so we won't go hungry tonight. Leftover Halloween candy for dessert.

Laundry is done, roast is in the oven and I have some free time on my hands. I made Hershey's Chocolate Pudding, Microwave version. So easy, sooo delicious! I had a small teaspoon taste. That's it for me.

I've got a meatloaf in the oven. Since I can't have white bread, I used a half package of cornbread stuffing mix for the filler, and it's got plenty of seasoning.

I made up a small batch of gazpacho with chunks of avocado and mini shrimp.

Meat and veggies. Yum!

I had half a pkg of bacon from making the zuppa soup last weekend and it needed to be cooked. So I made scrambled eggs to go with it. This is a meal that won't get made often anymore since DH's stent placements.

Beautiful and clear here today but windy and chilly. In the shade with the wind blowing, it was really cold, so I thought soup would be a good choice. So...

We're having my homemade potato soup, a recipe I created over 50 years ago, homemade baguette with lots of butter and roasted garlic, iced tea, and the last of the anniversary cake.
