Tonight is our Mardi Gras Ball, so I'm sure there will be snacks, at least. I made a turkey breast sandwich with Swiss, I ate half, and am saving the other half for later.

I got the turkey partially disassembled and found a stopping point which ended up with 3 quart bags for the freezer. One drumstick, 2 wings, 1 thigh, I decided I would have plenty of bones for stock from the rest of the carcass, so I decided to leave the bones in these pieces for another stock later on.

The giblet stock went into stuffing, and the drippings gravy. I saved the giblets and the rest of the stock. I'll put the giblets in a baggie, and the stock into an ice tray and freeze them.

I'll take care of the rest of the bird tomorrow, for this afternoon until the Ball at 7pm, I've got floors to clean etc., for inspection tomorrow morning.

I have round steak marinating in BBQ sauce and will have that, potatoes (fried if I get ambitious, baked if not--probably baked!), and probably California blend vegetables. Another reason I may go with baked rather than fried (other than the fact I don't need anything greasy right now) is that I have to make Katie H's "Funeral Cake" tonight (didn't get it done last week and James is getting impatient!) and I have other things to do, and baked is a lot easier! (That's a lot of writing just to basically say steak in BBQ sauce, potato, veggie! LOL).

I am making stuffed eggplant that I found on a site. Got the idea from here though.

I am actually super excited for dinner tonight! Green Salad with a homemade tomato dressing, homemade clam chowder with cheddar biscuits and then macaroons with a chocolate ganache for dessert. I have never made my own dressing, soup or macaroons... can't wait to see how they turn out!!

Well, I ended up making a HUGE salad and topped it with with some roast chicken, shredded Asiago cheese and sundried tomato vinaigrette. Ritz crackers on the side.
Quoth the chicken, "Fry some more."

Had to be gone most of the day for doctors' appointments, so I threw some sauerkraut, Polish sausage, chopped onions, garlic and applesauce in the crock-pot.

We had homemade pickled beets and mashed potatoes, iced tea and ice cream sundaes to round it out.

We're full and it's raining like crazy here!!!!

You drink a lot of iced tea Katie H. I love iced tea. Do you have a favorite recipe?
