What's Cooking Saturday December 31

I didn't see an actual thread for today so...

I'm cooking an oyster stew for tonight, as well as New England Boiled Dinner for tomorrow (or maybe a monster Reuben).

What's cooking at your place today? Nibbles, dinner, party or just staying at home?


If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

sloppy joes with tater-tots

coming back to add.... I don't have all the ingredients I thought I did for the sloppy joes. So, I'm going to make chili. Sloppy Joes might be on the menu for Monday.
A little kindness goes a long way.

Just finished loading up and ready to head out. I am playing for a party tonight and they are throwing in dinner for the band and our partners. So, I'm not sure, but the Tavern I am playing at specializes in Polish food. Szczesliwego Nowego Roku!!

Finally feeling well enough to cook. Provided that chicken that sitting in cold water defrosts in time, it will be chicken cacciatore. I'm not sure if I want to serve that with whole grain wheat pasta or brown basmati rice. I'll probably make a very simple, green salad with a garlic vinaigrette as the vegi part of the meal.

I am turning the leftovers from last night's dinner, that single rib roast I reverse seared and ridiculously put the whole thing on a plate...

...into a cheese steak sandwich on French bread. Not sure yet if I'm going to use provolone or the whiz.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

We had a repeat of the Christmas eve menu. Cheese, crackers, summer sausage, crab, shrimp, etc.
No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best!
