Have you been cooking today?

I cheated and bought a cherry cheese pie from Bennett's Cafe,...they do make the best I've ever tasted.
The dressing was in the freezer from Thanksgiving, when I made a double batch and froze one...it has thawed in the fridge and is ready to put in the oven.
This evening, DH and I made twice baked potatoes (potato boats) topped with bacon bits, crushed canned onion rings and grated cheddar cheese, and they are ready to put in the oven. We're having smoked ham, and it will go in the oven as well.
I'm using the Pillsbury frozen rolls, which are delicious, and daughter is bringing the rest.
My oven will be busy tomorrow!


We get by with a little help from our friends

No cooking tonight, just baking. All the cooking will be taking place tomorrow. I still have to think up a nice rub or something for the turkey but everything else is figured out.

I did rib eyes and oven roasted potatoes for dinner and also, made the breakfast casserole for tomorrow. This was a very easy day.

Nothing today. My cooking/baking is done for the season.

Yup, cooked this morning...breakfast in the homeless shelter. Nothing fancy. Dozen and a half scrambled eggs, hash browns and patty sausage, plus a dozen and a half eggs scrambled with chorizo, warm flour tortillas, grated cheese, salsa rojo, freshly ground coffee, tea, milk and juice. Molasses cookies. In fact, I just got home after cleaning up after them and me. It's cold and rainy, and I'm gonna finish my coffee and climb in the Jacuzzi for a while. Happy Christmas, everyone. God bless.

I cooked all afternoon yesterday because we had our Christmas dinner with family here in town. We are spending today with our extended family, so DW and I have been making finger food this morning...

We have now had our dinner - joint cooking effort - I was put in charge of the stuffing and the roast vegetables. I roasted squash, potatoes & crrots with garlic & roasemary.
A nice relaxed meal put together with all cooperating - 2 in laws, DW, me and the two boys.
