Well, I had a couple eggs and some cream about to expire, so I just had to make chocolate kahlua mousse. That will be my dessert.

Dinner? What dinner?

I'm going to see if there is a transit system here in San Jose California where I can get to Castro Valley for Pyzanno's Pizza. I've seen it on TV and want to give it a try. Mostly I'd order a huge ole salad but would love to have just one piece of pizza. If not, then dinner's on hold until I figure out what else I'd like.

The first course is a salad with boston lettuce, topped with goat cheese and dried cherry dumplings. The lettuce is tossed with pear vinegar and olive oil.

Dinner is roasted pork rib roast. I've been brining the rib roasts since last night. That will be served with fig and pistachio stuffing, and sauteed beets/butternut squash.

I've just finished a peach and apple pie for dessert. I'll toss that in the oven later this afternoon.

Cocktails are paddy cocktails, and the wine is of the pinot variety.

It's not nearly as frigid as last night, so we're hoping for Irish coffee out by the fire later tonight with a dip in the hot tub, as well.

What kind of wine would you like me to bring? And did you say dinner at 7:00?

beef stew

I have pert near two gallons of stew simmering on the stove right now, so will be having that for several meals in the near future. It will be so cold tonight that I can set the pot outside until morning. I will also clear out various breads in the freezer to accompany the stew. I made the stew with local beef, home canned tomatoes, potatoes and green beans.

Hosting a Mexican potluck tonight with several friends. I'm making chicken enchiladas and some guacamole; others are bringing a rice side, sangria, corn cake, an unspecified but claimed decadent side, and a cinnamon tortilla treat. The resident bartender will make the margaritas. Sounds good to me!

Tonight for dinner I thought I would make a large chef salad with everything in it but the kitchen sink and a glass of wine.

Soup get-together tonight - Italian Wedding Soup, Mushroom Soup (still don't know if it's a cream-base or not) and I'm bringing a Lentil and Tomato Soup. Cabernet Sauvignon is the wine, there will be bread, and some kind of dessert. Other appetizers but I don't know what they are - it will just have to be a surprise. These are some extreme foodies so I can only imagine they will be wonderful!

I'm afraid to ask what a Bacon Buttie is - it sounds like the cat ate your food and now you're............. I would LOVE to know what these are.

Try HP sauce instead of ketchup. Tastes even better!

Bacon butty is a bacon sandwich. It's a British term
