My Pineapple salsa is also prepared to make the 20 mile trip. The rest of the brood will fill in the menu blanks.
Anyway, I'm glad I had a TJ's lasagna in the freezer because that's what's for dinner here.
All you need now is three French hens, two turtle doves and a partridge.

Pork ribs with Baby Ray sauce. French cut string beans and mushrooms sautéed in olive oil and seasoned. Pirate did all the cooking. Since I am limited on green veggies, I had only a small portion. But they were so good. I could have eaten all of them.

I made a big batch of stuffing today. Bread, sage, olive oil, onion, golden raisins, pecans, chicken broth, celery, onion, currants, tart apple. Had a big bowl with mushroom gravy left over from Thanksgiving.

In the next several mornings, I will put stuffing into waffle iron and heat until warm and a bit crispy. Then top with a couple of poached eggs.

Heaven!

A really nice, quiet, simple dinner her together as a family. Just us three,; nothing to rush or get done, for a change.

While my wife was making coconut macaroons to give as gifts, my son decided to experiment with flour, salt, a bit of sugar, and water. He first made a dough, then he rolled it out trying various shapes and cuts. After we discussed what could be done with it, I ended up teaching him how to make eggdrop soup, to which he added his "dumplings".

It was delicious! The next time I'm sick, eggdrop soup with dumplings is what I want!

Later, DW made breaded, fried flounder and Polish homefries. There was also a salad with aged balsamic dressing.

My boy's eggsnot soup: (sorry about the lighting)

Busy all day cooking then cleaning the kitchen (so I can re-dirty it tomorrow) and wrapping SO's gifts. SO gave me a drink and I responded by taking a long winter's nap.

Dinner was snacking on crackers, cheeses, pepperoni and pickles. Later milk and paklava.

I spent the day prepping the pulled pork, poppers and making various versions of a NC vinegar sauce.

My wife treated me to Manwich, which just happens to be one of my favorite food groups.

Gee thanks. Now I want a waffle iron. Holiday Stuffing is my very favorite food any time of the year.
