For tonight I made a big casserole of baked Ziti (ziti, ricotta, mozzarella, parmesan, seasoned bread crumbs, + a jar of Barilla pasta sauce.). Served with a mixed green salad. Good, easy, filling, & perfect for an evening of all-day snow/sleet.

Made a saucier of soup. Chicken stock, chicken breast, garlic, shallot, sauvignon blanc, zuchinni, roma tomaters, little semi di melone pasta, baby spinach, black pepper, kosher salt, drizzled with EVOO, and sprinkled with grated pecorino romano. Had a nice hunk of warm baguette I just picked up with it, and a hunk of Hershey's Cacao reserve bar with the cacao nibs.

Dinner was at my daughters today for Olivias birthday..We had artichoke-spinach dip and chips, 7-layer dip and chips, salsa, an antipasto tray Proscuitto and provolone tortellini with alfredo sauce, linguine with my homemade meat sauce, tossed green salad with dried cranberries,chopped and toasted walnuts,feta cheese,Italian bread and butter and a girly girly birthday cake shaped like the number one and decorated with flowers, in pastels, the cake was a marbeled one with chocolate mouse center and european icing. Our little girl, dug in and was soon covered in cake and smiling from ear to ear..When she had had enough she let me know with a big wet rasberry, so now I too have cake in unexpected places

Kitchenelf, what is "she crab soup" specifically the "she" part because I know what crab soup is.

We had ziti with pasta sauce (red sauce) with steak cooked in the sauce.

Around this neck of the woods, "She-Crab Soup" is made from female Blue-Claw Crabs & specifically includes the roe of the female crabs.

Thanks Breezy, I learned something new. Can one use male crab claws in soups as well or is the female prefered?

Ribbon meatloaf (this meatloaf has a layer of cheese and bread between the meat layers), spinach sauteed in olive oil with garlic, and rice pilaf. The best thing is now I have meatloaf for sandwiches this week.

We had pizza, we bought the base but its different here, you buy the base alive and rising in a tub! We had marinated turkey on it.

Absotively... but it's difficult if you have to buy the crabs in a grocery store.
