It must be casserole night. It is cold and blustery here. I made tuna casserole with items from the pantry like Momma use to make.

I remembered. I have tourtière! I had a piece.

I made Papa, Carl, Laki, Gwen, and DA wonderful tuna, bacon and Swiss cheese grilled sandwiches on ciabatta rolls and DA's vegetable soup.

Mamma and I are still not having our appetites back yet, so we just had the rest of the chicken soup and water.

Perhaps this is tuna night, yes?

With love,
~Cat

You are supposed to be resting.

The four of us went to a very small art show that a friend of our son's opened today. After, we stopped for Chinese because Mom had a taste for it. Gotta keep this Mommy happy. ;-)

Three entrees, soup and egg rolls around...and leftovers for the boy.

Um...this was our SATURDAY night. Oops. Friday was still cauliflower soup and cabbage and noodles.

is there a recipe for it somewhere? Never heard of it, but it looks good

we had "Zurcher Geschnetzeltes" without champignons, 'cause there weren't any in the house with swiss roesti, and believe me, it was great!

I would just google "Turkey with biscuits recipe" You will find many different recipes.
There are many variations. I don't use milk, I just make a gravy using a slurry of flour and water. which I add after the other ingredients have simmered in the turkey stock for about 20 minutes. Then I let that cook on low for another 10 or 15 minutes and finish off the seasoning.

I also used a product called Bisquick to make the very basic biscuts...But, you can find many recipes to make them from scratch...

Mmmm. I was debating with myself what to make with the roasted chicken I picked up from Costco yesterday. Chick'n' noodles, chicken and stuffing/ dressing casserole, or chicken and biscuits. Rock locked this one in pretty early. Chicken pot pie with home-made buttermilk baking powder biscuits.

I stripped the bird last night to make stock this morning. I have fresh green beans, pea pods, carrots, onion, and may or may not add some potato and frozen cauliflowers. I have broccoli and peas too, but that may be too much green veggies and I like green veggies. I'd like a little celery when I make stock, but you can't have everything.


Cara, you can make a gravy sauce or veloute sauce, combine with cooked veggies and some sliced/ bite size pieces chicken or turkey. Heat it all in a pan or pour into a casserole dish and pre-bake. Once it is hot, place biscuits on top and bake at 400 -425 F for 12 -15 minutes until biscuits are done. Heating the mix first keeps the biscuits from coming out with soggy bottoms when the tops are done. Use extra biscuit dough or make a tray of biscuits to serve with butter and honey on the side.

I like to make turkey a la king (the same turkey and veg in gravy) and serve it over mashed potatoes. If I don't have potatoes, we have it over toast, like Andy.

I had a difficult day yesterday so DH suggested picking up some takeout from our nearby Greek restaurant. I got their marinated, grilled chicken wings, DH got a gyro pizza, and we both got Greek salad.
