Did it taste good? Yes? Well then, that's ALL that counts!


We had salad and stuffed acorn squash. Made an onion-sausage bread stuffing. Yummy, but not really filling. The squash was small, and we each had half. Thinking of making late-night munchies - a bedtime snack. Probably a couple scrambled eggs for us to share, using up some leftover ham from the subs on Saturday.

Creole crawfish, tasso, corn, red and green bell pepper, carrot, onion chowder. Still working on the 80 lb of crawfish I brought back from LA several months ago. Cooked them, twisted off the heads and froze tails still in shells.

Cheryl, I've had my little 6 qt. Nesco roaster for more than 20 years and I couldn't do without it, especially at the holidays. I use it for my mashed potatoes, or my dressing, or any other side that I might be making, and I can keep the oven free for the turkey or ham. I like it sooo much better than a crockpot because of the wide range of temperatures, and nothing ever has that "weird" taste I find with a crock pot. It's still going strong after all these years, and I could never do without it.


Dinner tonight is fabulous leftover lobster from last night's dinner.
I'll be doing classic Lobster Rolls, and I prepared the chunked lobster early in the day to blend the flavors of mayo, celery with some leaves, fresh chopped chives, some fresh lemon, and a couple splashes of fish sauce.
Butter toasted top split Kings Hawaiian rolls will be used, because we don't have the classic rolls on the left coast. They worked really well last year when we did them. Clam chowder will go with them.
Yum, lobster rolls...! Sounds fabulous.

I hear ya on the Nesco, Kay. I couldn't do without my 6 qt. either. It's so nice to be able to sear a nice chunk of meat at 450, then turn the heat down to slow cook, all in the same appliance. I gave my crock pots away years ago and just use the Nesco.
