What's Cooking Saturday Dec. 4?

Dinner is about ready here

Last night I soaked about 1 1/2 pounds of great northern beans and simmered them today with a meaty ham bone from a Honey Baked ham, a large diced sweet potato, lotsa onions, garlic, I used home canned chicken stock in place of cold water, and other seasonings....also made a "new" corn bread recipe, turned out great....now we are set for a few snowy days.

what's happening at your place?

I have a pot of beef stew simmering now. We will probably have fresh green beans and a salad of some sort - also baking a pumpkin pie. I cheated and bought a frozen one at the store. Probably biscuits with the beef stew.

We are going out shopping, I've decided we are heading for the Mexican place we love. I'll have to have the ground meat, no picadillo for me today. I'm hoping I can handle the chili rellano!

Hello everyone,

We are all spending the day at home (a rare treat) to put up the Christmas tree.

For dinner we'll grill some chicken breasts on the bone. On the side we'll have roasted veggies tossed with faro and dressed with an asian blend of soy, grapeseed oil, ginger, garlic, and green onion.

Enjoy the day

I just finished a filling Brunch. I made Belgian Eggnog Waffles with Pecans, Sausage, OJ and Coffee. I think I will turn the leftover Rib Steak into a savory soup.

I am not sure what I'll make today. I'm hankering for a ham and cheesy scalloped potatoes, but I'm not sure I'll find one on sale today. Failing that, pork loin roast? Wild rice pilaf, coleslaw (vinaigrette) and something warm from the oven for dessert. Either a pie or banana cake.

Not a hungry day today so we just grazed on some odds and ends and appetizers.
