Dinner plans for Monday, January 14th

I'm sitting here eating my crunchy peanut butter on raisin bread toast for breakfast and I'm already thinking about dinner....

I'm making a roast chicken with stuffing, yukon gold mashed potatoes with gravy, green beans and rolls with butter. It's my go-to comfort dinner on snowy days.

What are your plans?

Did you prick them with a fork before cooking? That will allow steam to escape and maybe they won't explode

I'm trying another newspaper recipe tonight - easy individual chicken pot pies cooked in little Le Creuset casserole dishes, using leftover chicken we cooked over the weekend. Maybe a green salad alongside.

The stupid jingle for the commercial has been stuck in my head for days, so I figure if I make it it may go away?
However YT may have just inspired me to go grill some brats although it is only 5 degrees outside.

I'm making your dinner. I have all needed and it's an easy and comforting meal. Thanks for posting and letting me know what's for dinner tonight.
Gad dinner turned out good. I used Bucky's House seasoning on the top of the chicken that I'd oiled down with oregano olive oil, did it in my Romertopf with carrots though, underneath it, steaming away in that yummy juice.
Dh, whenever he gets home, is gonna love it.
So glad you posted this idea, that organic Von's bird was huge and juicy.
Actually used real heavy cream on the mashed pots, I'm allowed two bites, small ones

The boy is having a grilled tuna steak with steamed broccoli and salad. I'm not sure what I'm having yet, maybe just soup again.

I fired up my smoker at 6:20 am this morning. I've got a pork picnic shoulder going right now. In about 40 minutes, I'm going to pull it out, wrap it up, and get it into a slow oven for another 4 hours. Once it's done, I'm going to pull it and make a Posole for dinner tonight. Hopefully I'll have a little extra left over so I can make some BBQ sandwiches, quesadillas, or enchiladas as well.

Sattie's duck made w ginger, soy and honey is my inspiration for a whole roasted chicken. Going to put a sliced orange in the cavity, and orange slices in the pan. Potato, mushroom, onion & gruyere gratin on the side - either steamed broc, snow peas or green salad. Depends on if I get to the market today & what fresh ingredients look good.

When's supper Allen? And how do we get to your house--my goodness I'm salivating that sounds so good

Pork tenderloin, corn on the cob, tossed green salad, broccoli,onion and mushroom quick stir fry, and whole wheat rolls. Some watermelon for dessert. For the tenderloin I'm experimenting with adding some orange marmalade and Asian sweet chili sauce to some canned whole berry cranberries as a side sauce. So we'll see how that concoction goes. Darling daughter is coming home after spending nearly 2 weeks overseas so thought that she might like some comfort food--as she is 21 I also have some Fosters cooling in the fridge!!
