What's for Dinner 27 Dec 2013

Wow - almost 2 PM and no dinner thread yet. I'll start.....

We are having fried haddock left over from Christmas Eve dinner, green and yellow beans, carrots, and scalloped potatoes. I may have a bowl of clam chowder to start off.

What is everyone else having?

I just got back from the town grocer. I picked up some of their fried chicken and had to stop myself from eating all eight pieces it was so good. I didn't want to spoil my appetite for prime rib tonight. The small roast is already sitting on the counter losing it's chill.

Christmas Eve leftovers here too!

I have a ball of dough left from Christmas Eve along with enough odds and ends to make a small pizza. A rather dilapidated bag salad will serve as a side.

Today will be the reverse of yesterday. I'll have some leftover chicken in a quesadilla and SO will have leftover rib roast.

Mrs D is working tonight so I'm off to Big Chris' place for some BBQ.
Big Chris BBQ Smokehouse / Barrie, ON

Of course, I would never hear the end of it if I didn't get some for Mrs D too.

I have no idea what we will do for supper. I seem to have my appetite back. Stirling is still asleep, so I don't know how his appetite is doing. Yesterday soda crackers made him vomit, so have to be careful.

My neighbour made some very lean turkey soup and is giving me some for my dinner and she made a full plate of turkey dinner for TB.

This is so awesome having people help us with food. Usually I am the one arranging it for others. I feel so blessed.

Costco rotisserie chicken, egg noodles with lots of butter and edamame with lots of butter. I like butter. (grin)

Two pieces of See's chocolate for dessert.
