I made "Santa Fe Chipotle" soup for lunch - it was a mix from Bear Creek brand which was purchased at the grocery store. It had a tomato-y broth with spiral pasta, peppers, onions, and corn in it. It was pretty good for a quick-fix meal.

DH just said he would fix a sandwich and chips for supper, so I guess I ain't doing any real cookin' today! LOL

I felt yukky all day, guess a cold is coming on and so I think I'll just have some lentil soup and watch the cats try to kill each other.
My brother invited me over, but my sister-in-law is such a whiner I don't feel like driving 62 miles one way just to listen to her carp about having to cook.

Well, due to weather, illness and the fact it is already the 4th of January, my family Christmas dinner has been canceled all together. DH and I will take my Dad out some time during the week and then my sister will do the same next weekend (she and DH have no coordinating days off for the next 2 months. On top of that my leg is swollen and sore again so I have to stay off it as much as possible.

Since I have to use the turkey breast today (I thawed it for stuffing and serving to the family today). I am roasting it unstuffed and pairing it with plain rice, broccoli and if I can make some from what little drippings I get from a 2 pound lean breast, gravy. I am unfortunately not in a creative mode to make it a fancy meal.

Oh, and all the appies I made for today (troutiere in phyllo, mushroom bundles, mini quiche and spinach rolls) are becoming snacks as I can't freeze them once they are baked. Will probably send it with DH to work tomorrow!

I am trying out a new recipe tonight: Penne with Spicy Italian Sausage. The talk of carmelized onions and squash have me pondering the idea of running down to the store to pick up some squash to have with dinner.
