What's for Dinner Sunday December 18th?

We are going to DH's parent's place today for the Beier family Christmas. There are 22 people in his immediate family (including 4 siblings, 2 older nieces and 6 spouses, plus the younger kids.

We potluck the meal so his Mom doesn't have to cook much. It is turkey this year and I am taking my usual glazed carrots, plus baking. I was going to take a tourtiere, but alas I haven't got them done in time.

What's cooking at your house?

I'm off to work this afternoon so I'll be leaving some tacos for the family. It was requested for last night, but its one of those things I'd rather leave when I'm on evening shift. Easy to assemble, and tasty all around.

Nothing of consequence LPB we are a bit morose over the death of Chris Hitchens.

I hope today is special for you and your family, you in particular deserve nothing less.

PPPC week 14 is here! Just a couple more weeks left. Really, the way the Browns play, I could do this for the next 10 years and only have to make 16 entries... maybe longer... Playoffs?! Are you talking about playoffs?!
As we are playing Arizona today, a state which draws much of its cuisine from northern Mexico, I am making Carne Seca, Apache Burros and Sonoran Quesadilla. Easy peasy finger foods.

I did a roast chicken last night, so we will be having Chicken and Dumplings tonight.

Soup will be with leeks and normal stuff. Dumplings will be with parsley and scallions.

Ughhhh.. I hate the flu. I hope all is well soon!

I don't know what is going on here. We have talked about going out, but it's not for sure. If we aren't going out, it's going to be salisbury steak, mashed potatoes with some kind of veggie.
