Well, I have to work tonight, so I'll probably eat at work. PeppA pulled out a beef eye or round roast to thaw, so I'd bet we're having roast beef for dinner tonight.

I'm going to make a creamy shrimp sauce to go over some angel-hair pasta and have a tossed salad on the side tonight.

I'm in the mood for comfort food so
I think I'll make some porkchops in mushroom sauce ( yes, soup from a can!)
and pour it all over mashed potatoes. I'm out of fresh veggies and since I don't/won't drive in the snow I'll open a can of mushy green beans. It'll be a dinner just like mom used to make.

Wow! I guess we're all back to cooking dinner after that long holiday. I'm making a chicken and potato cassoulet with mushrooms, pearl onions, bacon and rosemary. Just some rolls with butter on the side.

I am going to make myself a fresh fruit salad, broil a chicken and have some type of vegetable. No dessert because I am watching my calories.

I have a few slices left over...want one? We're both up at the same time, anyway..and I get the idea you pass by here on your way to work....

I just finished roast beef in a beef gravy, with potatoes and carrots that were cooked in the same pot as the roast.

Tacos is what is for dinner tonight!! I mixed the ground beef with black beans and had all the usual taco toppings. It was nice to have a meal that did not have turkey in it.

Sauerkraut and boneless pork ribs I roast in the oven. We always put this on top of mashed potatoes with butter.

Go figure. I haven't had a "tip" since I can't remember when (I own my own business, so no big surprise), and in the last two weeks, two customers have brought ribs for a tip. No complaints, though! The scallops will be lunch, I guess.

We had breakfast for dinner tonight. Scrambled eggs, country ham, homemade biscuits, and fried apples with dried cranberries.

lol, i was tempted to seek you out just to see the neighbor's christmas display.

thanks for the recipe. i think dw used to reconstitute raisins in brandy before adding both to the pie.

we are going to have to hook up sometime, maybe around the holidays. i promise not to wear a giant's or devil's jersey.

btw, did you know when you buy a jersey from a team from new jersey, it's a new new jersey jersey.
sort of like having an account in the red bank branch of the long branch bank. or is that the long branch branch of the red bank bank?


(lol, sorry everyone, just a few joisey jokes)

Boufa06, I'm sure I must have been Greek in another life. Everytime you list what you're having tonight, I get these "I want that" cravings.

Small world indeed! My DH keeps telling me that I must have been a Greek in a previous life.
