What's for Dinner Friday Dec 16/11?

One more week to go!

I did a pot roast last night and it was so delicious there isn't a speck of leftovers!

Tonight is something with chicken breast I think. I'll need to use my noggin because we have folks coming and going. I hate it when we don't all hit the table at the same time, but that is just how life is these days. I think I'll do something Asian themed as I have some veggie spring rolls I'd like to do for an appy. Hmmm...

OK, changed my mind! I'm going to do chicken penne alfredo. I might make gnocchi today too if I get my butt in gear. Then my DD can have her gnocchi fix with alfredo sauce and the rest of us will have the penne.

I think we're doing some kind of take-out tonight.

We could start a poll to help you decide, but you have to go with it.

I forgot to take out the bottom round for stew so I may put it into a ziploc bag and do a cold water bath to thaw enough to cube it. Or I may just wait till tomorrow for stew. In which case it will probably be pasta or some sort of breakfast meal.

I'm hoping to get my tourtiere's made today so we might have a taste test tonight. I make six just to the baking stage and then freeze 5. One is for our Christmas dinner, one is for DH's family Christmas this Sunday and two are for gifts. The last one is for New Year's Eve with some friends.

Even though my people fought on the side of the French, the French never used the word 'tourtiere' with us. What is a "tourtiere" may I ask.

A tourtiere is a French Canadian meat pie, traditionally made with veal, pork and potatoes, though the recipes are quite varied between regions and families. Also, through the years people have substituted beef for the veal (I do equal parts of all three meats) and I just learned that some people are even substituting ground turkey thigh for the veal. It is seasoned with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. I think my family recipe is posted somewhere (I will look for it), but this is a good one that I just saw on Chuck Hughes' Christmas special "Chuckmas" and am going to try this year - and it makes six pies which I want, but you can easily cut it down.
