I am drawing a big blank for tonight though.

How about Cajun Creamy Chicken over linguine? Not sure what made me think of that...

Me neither, but it has possibilities
Off to look for a frozen chicken breast...

Hah! You thought of it because I made the Hit Parade.
And here I thought you were perusing my album...

I found three pieces of chicken that resemble thighs, so I still think I'll make the creamy cajun dish, but using whole thighs instead.

I'd like to try that dish. Care to post a recipe?

I used this recipe.
Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta Recipe - Food.com - 39087

My changes were:
I used fresh garlic instead of powdered
Added crimini mushrooms
Halved the chicken used but not the sauce (I was cooking for one)
I also thickened the sauce with some fresh grated parm as everything was warming through.

Very simple and tasty.

sour rye bread with smoked whitefish salad spread, together with cream of potato soup. i can't believe we are already finishing up the last of the smoked whitefish shipment. i received three lbs. of the fish from the great lakes just five days ago. i hadn't expected any help with the eating of the whitefish, since my mom never liked fish of any kind. she ate up almost half of the fish salad, and asked for it almost every day!! i'll be having to place another order with charlie's smokehouse tout suite--but there will be none to be had for thanksgiving, now.... :(

Made my first mushroom soup this afternoon to reheat tonight. Bloody gorgeous if I may say so myself. Was really impressed, first time eating mushroom soup and I love it! Can't wait to eat it tonight now. Only about an hour and a half to go!

Pot roast with sour cream sauce and medium egg noodles. Creamed chopped Swiss chard and creamed chopped kale.

Not much here. Got the cough that's making the rounds in my house. After all the Halls cough drops I've had today, I don't have many taste buds left. Probably just have some chicken noodle soup and toast.
