Just bought an oven stuffer roaster. Dinner will be roast chicken (although I'll cut it into quarters and lay it out in a pan), pilaf and steamed corn off the cob.

Scrambling to put together an impromptu (sort-of) Russian dinner party.

So far...

Black Russians
Mixed green salad w/ sliced beets, crumbled feta and walnuts
Chicken Kiev w/ compound butter of sun-dried tomatoes, parsley and minced garlic
Butteried parslied noodles
Asparagus

Any ideas for a Russian dessert.

How long does it take freezer to ready to top for your dough?

I usually plan 4 hours and remain flexible if it takes 5.

We've been pigging out on Papa Murphy's pizza since noon, so something light. I made red cabbage coleslaw, maybe that and more pizza.

New recipe, crunchy garlic chicken. Sounds yummy! We'll also have wild rice and some kind of green salad. Dessert will be some of the baking that's happening in my kitchen right now. Lemon squares, white chocolate macadamia nut cookies, and possibly a pound cake.
