What's for Dinner Monday, April 4?

These days it is rare that we have company; visitors are all but banned. But tonight we are having some friends over for dinner and uchre. I am fixing a crock pot rotisserie chicken, a whopping 7 1/4 pounder back yard raised chicken, some sweet potatoes are supporting the chicken in the crock pot, need to think about some bread, and carrot cake for break time in the card games. They are bringing a salad.

What's happening for your supper meal?

Gonna try making crab rangoon for the first time. Pork fried rice will round out the meal.

Haven't decided yet. Maybe butternut squash soup. Have some mayo rolls left over from yesterday. Also have some chicken and mushroom sauce.

Beth, I hope you enjoy your company and have fun playing cards. Spending time with special friends is one of the best gifts we have.

My early best guess is grilled shrimp enchiladas with molé.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

Probably going to have grilled cheese with the chicken soup I made yesterday. Got a sore throat and sniffles and not much energy.

Monday is curry night at our house. Tonight I'm trying a couple of Anjum Anand's recipes for Bengali dishes: Coconut Prawns, and a Butternut Squash and Chickpea stew.

If it looks good, I'll post a photo.

Baked potatoes with choice of toppings, steamed cauliflower and broccoli, and grilled kielbasa.

Quoth the chicken, "Fry some more."
