What's for dinner today - Saturday, March 28th?

I'm going to have a repeat of yesterday's great northern bean and pasta soup. Today I'll have garlic bread with it and a mug of that "dangerous" microwave chocolate cake.

What is everyone else having?

we are going to a port tasting party tonight, this has turned out to be an annual event, complete with a banner..

this is held at the home of the best cook in the crowd....she usually does a fresh fish, tenderloin of some sort and a smoked poultry...we all bring sides....I have the responsibility to bring the breads...really looking forward to this event..

I am treating myself to a gigantic baked Idaho potato with some salt, pepper and fat free sour cream.
Finally things have started clicking for me, my knees, my elbows, my back, etc...

I haven't totally decided yet. I am still full from my huge lunch yesterday so likely something light. I think maybe a big chefs salad is in order.

I am putting a corned beef roast in the crock-pot with carrots, onion and celery. I don't have any cabbage, but that will still be good. With that, I'll have mashed potatoes and salads.... wheat bread-n-butter. I have a craving for that today, and it smells soooo good in here when it's been cooking for a few hours.

It looks like it's going to be a dreary day, so comfort food is in order.
A little kindness goes a long way.

We're going to a benefit dinner and dance tonight, so I guess we're having whatever is on the buffet and draft beer

Tonight we splurge and order pizza from Pizza Hut. First meal from outside my kitchen in, gosh.... a month or more?
I plan on over-eating.

Kades, can I come?

I was going to have the steak we didn't have yesterday but no one is still feeling like anything heavy so it will wait until tomorrow and I will have to come up with something....soup, probably.

I think I'm going to be lazy and just open a can of clam chowder. It's been raining here for days and it just feels like the best thing to do. I cooked last night and DD didn't come home so it went to waste.
