What's for Dinner Friday Jan 13/12?

Hey, its Friday the 13th...didn't notice til just now.

I'm contemplating a big ham dinner with cheesy scalloped potatoes. I will need to see what everyone's evening schedule is like though. It could change to something "grab n go" if its a busy night.

Spicy stir fried sprouts for us. Sprouts, chilli, garlic, ginger. Surprisingly filling!

Leftover wild rice. The power has been iffy all day, so I don't want to commit to something I can't finish. Cooking on the woodstove is an option, but nothing elaborate.

Right now I have no idea...

Might need to get thinking about this.

Browned up a bunch of coarse ground pork, chunks of boneless pork ribs, along with onions, garlic, jalapenos. Threw it all into the crock-pot with a gazillion herbs and spices, particularly 6 tablespoons of assorted chili powders, canned tomatoes from last summer's garden, kidney beans and a can of beef broth. Looks...and smells like chili. We'll have that with some hot cornmeal pan rolls and iced tea. Some of the remaining Christmas sweets for dessert. Should be just about right for a day where the high temp hasn't reached freezing yet. Sunny, windy and...COLD.

I have a stray piece of pork sirloin. I think I'll dice it up and make a taco filling with it. I have onion, garlic, jalapenos and seasonings.

My mystery container from yesterday still hasn't thawed yet, so I'm hoping I've got enough frozen wings left in the bag for dinner. Maybe I'll grill some potato wedges to go with them.
Give us this day our daily bacon.
