What's for Dinner, Friday, January 16

I'm open to ideas! It is 14 degrees F .. going to be a high of 22. It is cold and windy. I am waiting on the electrican and HOPEFULLY I will have power back in the kitchen tonight so I can cook a real meal!

Any suggestions on a hot comfort food to celebrate?

Today's high will be FIVE degrees.

Not sure what dinner will be. Have some leftovers so I may just use them, maybe order a pizza? Pot of soup?

I would make a pot of chili or beef stew with cornbread (sweet or savory!). You could also have garlic bread or homemade biscuits!

We are having pizza.... 1/2 bacon, onion, green pepper; 1/2 green pepper, onion, black olives, diced tomato... maybe even some cauliflower (in really small pieces).

Dave - you could try this, its a really good and easy one pot meal.

Crock pot chicken & dumplings:

We have to go to a graduation ceremony for our niece tonight and then out to eat with the in-laws - JOY.

Dave,

You said "... power back in the kitchen tonight... " You could use Toots' suggestion and use the crock-pot. That might be a better idea. If you're held up with the electrician into the afternoon... you're dinner will still be cookin'. You just have to plug it in somewhere else!

a full home grown meal; meatloaf (chevon), mashed potatoes made with butter and sour cream, s&p, horseradish and fresh minced garlic, baked sweet potato and sweet corn with a grinding of fresh black pepper and a spot of amish butter

Since I made such a huge pot of vegetable-beef soup yesterday, I'm definitely going to have leftovers tonight. Nice and hot and steamy, with a big hunk of cornbread. Have banana-nut bread for dessert. I'm a bit tired of Christmas sweets. At the rate I'm going, I'll still be eating them at Easter.
