Wednesday's Dinner Table 1/12

Good morning everyone,

A snow storm dumped about a foot of snow here on Long Island ... schools are closed and my kids are very happy. We'll go out and shovel in a bit and have some hot chocolate when we come in.

I have a lovely pot of split pea soup with ham simmering away on the stove ... that'll be for lunch.

Dinner will be meatloaf (Ina Garten recipe) smashed red potatoes, and sauteed peas with shallots.

A day filled with comfort food it seems ... wishing everyone a happy day

Parmesan chicken (similar to Alix's recipe), with scalloped cabbage. Maybe some broccoli or peas.

Lots of snow today but not as much as on the coast. Looking to try a recipe for garlic cheddar chicken tonight, will serve over some rice or noodles and a random veggie.

Recipe seems simple, boneless chicken coated in garlic butter then covered in seasoned breadcrumbs (I'll use panko) then baked.

Not much snow here either, maybe 7" of new stuff, but it can wait until tomorrow for me to relocate it. Hopefully it will have tapered off by then so I only need to snowblow once. Still, comfort food here, too. I'm going to make an open face pork sandwich from some leftover smoked pork, mashed potatoes and most likely corn. Maybe even canned corn, to make it a true diner experience, lol.

I am making eggs and sausage (yay, the home made breakfast sausage).

I have bread rising right now for the toast.

Are you going to the hen house to collect the eggs as well? Yum, a homemade breakfast for dinner. My kind of comfort food.

That said, I have a brisket ready to go and will finish it off with boiled potatoes and carrots (don't have cabbage and we are snowed in here).

We had a food of snow over night and now it is freezing rain. Even with my new yaktracks and cane pick I won't be going out. If DH doesn't get called in to work he may venture to the store but I find this a great time to use up what is in the freezer. I also have the pot of soup on I didn't do yesterday and that is lunch!
