Hi Cara, that sounds wonderful!

Tonight, the first course is seared diver scallops on roasted corn with a cilantro lime glaze.

Dinner is walnut and bread crusted chilean sea bass over purple fingerling hash with braised swiss chard.

German chocolate cake for dessert.

I think we're having manhattans tonight, and Lou hasn't picked the wine yet.

My husband LUVS German chocolate cake.

Not sure what I'm making tonight but I have a 12 lb turkey in the fridge (it has been defrosting for 3 days so I have to make it today or tomorrow). I think I'll make a traditional Thanksgiving Day dinner.

so far, lots of changes of plans...we were supposed to go to a party tonight, so no dinner here, but I just confirmed our tentative regrets, the weather is lousy, 100% chance for rain and freezing rain ....

so I have a smoked ham bone simmering for an eventual lentil soup; organic lentils, home grown onions, (dried) celery leaves, shredded sweet potatoes, garlic, maybe a potato or two...

yesterday I started a ww NYTimes bread/dough so we would have had something to eat at home before we went partying, but I want cornbread with the lentil soup. So I was hunting the cornmeal in the freezer, couldn't find it. Remembered I had two pounds of white hullless popcorn that does not work in my air popper, so I got some unexpected aerobic exercise grinding my own cornmeal, whew, sure didn't need the long underware on for that project

so tonights dinner looks to be lentil soup with corn bread maybe

tonight will be veddy interesting.

the ride home and back should prove fun. i hope the snow holds off 'till later. if not, i'll employ all of that good parking lot fishtail training i've had. all around the 2wd buttheads stuck on route 80.

i went food shopping last night, so dw has a pound of extra jumbo shrimp, and chicken tenderloins and legs to make something.

i'm hoping for shrimp cocktail and chicken fajitas to take back to work with me.

Good luck and be safe, but Rt 80's better than driving 46 though.
Although 46 has hot dog place.
You'll earn that dinner just being able to get back safe.
