Whats for dinner, 01-02-09

Feels strange to type O9.

Have a fridge full of leftovers so its, roast chicken, leftover fettuccine, cole slaw. Not the best mix but I hate to throw food out!



Fettuccine Alfredo is Macaroni & Cheese for Adults.

For hosting Xmas Eve and Xmas Day dinner, my family gave us some gift cards to our local grocery. We're all tired of leftovers, so tonite we're going to cook a couple live lobsters and do a pot of potatoes, corn, shrimp, & crab legs. We've been talking about it since the 26th!

dw is going shopping, so my boy and i are cooking together.

he loves the movie "ratatouille", so he calls me big chef, and he's "little chef". i know, it's enough to make the cynical nauseous, but you'd have to be here to see it. even anton ego would've liked to babysit him.

thusly, we have to make the odd things in the fridge that have been skipped over for the past few days. we are broiling loin lamb chops (for me ), and making chicken parm and spaghetti (for dw and the boy). then, we're making green split pea soup in the crock pot with the leftover ham bone from last weekend.

if there's time, probably after books and bedtime, i'm also making lamb stew to bring to my parents' house this weekend.

phew, lotsa cookin' tonight.

We're having burgers. I was in the mood for something basic.
We get by with a little help from our friends

I've got enough Hoppin' John to choke a horse. If all those ingredients that are supposed to bring you luck, money, coins, etc., are true if you eat them on January 1st - we'll be giving it away at the end of the year! I've got about 4 days worth of food!

I'm grilling some steaks or a skirt steak with a couple chunks of mesquite on the burners. And for the record, I did shovel a path of snow to get to my grill the other night. lol

Sides will be sauteed asparagus and maybe some grilled pesto shrimp.

I just took some ribeyes out of the freezer! Don't know what I'll do for sides yet. After all the appys and snacks during the holidays, I'm looking forward to a good piece of meat!

Happy New Year all ! DH brought home some sushi for a starter and we'll probably have some of last nights barbequed venison with pasta for dinner. Although it's once again a beautiful summer evening outside so we might just barbeque - AGAIN !
