Baked Chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy with some green beans and biscuits. Maybe a chocolate mayo cake with peanut butter icing for dessert.

Hey Joe, would you mind sharing the recipe for this. My grandmother used to make one that was in a white broth, not red like a minudo. She lost it years ago and I could never find one on-line for her. My uncle and I were the only ones that would eat it besides herself.

We're having breakfast for dinner.....bacon, sausage, pancakes, french toast and eggs. It's going to be a diner here tonight. lol Denny's grand slam.

Cream of Jalapeno Soup
chop 3 jalapenos, discarding ribs/seeds as desired to control heat (I use seeds from 1 jalapeno only)
chop 1 small or 1/2 large yellow onion
chop or grate 1 carrot
In a 3-quart pot (or larger) saute these veggies over med/hi heat in 2 T of EVOO or unsalted butter until soft, about 4 or 5 min. Add a chopped clove of garlic if desired.
add 2 TBSP flour to veggies and stir to thicken the olive oil (make a roux)
3-1/2 c. water
1 14.5 oz can chicken stock
Remove the pot from heat and add the water and chicken stock, stirring constantly. Put the pot back onto heat and bring to boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30-40 minutes.
Strain the soup and reserve the liquid. Puree the vegetables in a food processor or blender and add to the soup liquid. Place all back in the pot and stir well; if you are not ready to complete the soup at this point you can chill and freeze it or continue to simmer for a short while longer - 10 minutes or so.
Remove the simmering pot from heat. Stir in:
3/4 cup half-and-half
1 tsp salt (add to taste)
2 TBSP freshly chopped cilantro
stir well to blend half-and-half with pureed stock.
Right before serving, add 1 to 1-1/2 cups shredded cheese (colby/jack blend or monterrey jack is recommended) and stir until smooth.
I'm gonna make tomorrow tonight.
Sounds and looks like a winner.
I'll also make spaghetti carbonara via DVR'd program, Everyday Food
Sliced toms with old Balsamic vin
Iced vanilla lavender tea for me, for him, maybe a Scarlett O'Hara, do I have Southern Comfort?

I guess this is why some cookbooks tell you to keep some powdered milk around!
