What's for dinner Monday, Dec 5th?

I've been planning on making Fried Chicken. I need to go and get the chicken out of the freezer, get it thawed, then start the marinating/brining process. I'm probably going to have to go and buy a few more chicken legs, and maybe potatoes, if we don't have enough spuds. Mashed potatoes, homemade chicken gravy (I'm going to have LOTS of stock, I'm making some, and found more at the bottom of my deep-freezer last night), not sure about a veg. Maybe some corn, as I know we have plenty.

I just pulled some chicken thighs & kielbasa out of the freezer. I think I'll make some sort of gumbo like stuff with that & whatever else I can find.

Shrimp scampi with linguine. That is if I can stay out of the shrimp. I bought one of those trays and have ate 1/2 of it since Saturday. Italian blend salad and some garlic/cheddar biscuits. So much cheaper to make all this at home vs. going to Red Lobster. Unfort., I have to do my own dishes though.

I'm making green chile stew today with the left over pork tenderloin we have. Add potatoes, green chile, tomatoes, corn and a few spices serve it with some grated cheddar. Delicious.
I'm contemplating putting it in the slow cooker but am unsure? Any ideas? The pork is already cooked but I usually let the stew simmer for at least an hour, so the pork kind of gets shredded and the potatoes mostly boil away. What do you guys think?

For dessert, I'll be having a triple chocolate Dove bar. They are to die for. Let's see if I can wait that long...

do you make your meatballs using the standard recipe calling for sausage meat mixture?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I ended up making fried drumsticks, easy, baked potatoes, cole slaw and garlic bread. Good, not great, but okay

Ooh! Italian Wedding soup has to be one of the ultimate cold weather soups. I haven't had that since, well, my buddy's wedding rehearsal a few years ago. I've never made it, I'd really like to take a shot at it!

Myself, I picked up some take-out lasagna from the local Italian eatery and plan on having that with the bottle of wine I picked up.
