Dinner? - Sunday, December 14th

What? No one's posted yet!

I just put some chicken, garlic, onions, mushrooms, and cream of mushroom soup into the crock-pot. I'm feeling lazy today after my baking flurry yesterday.

Might even take a nap later.

What's everyone else having today?

I have a ham ready to cook. I have no idea what to do with it though.
I'm leaning towards scalloped ham and potatoes though. It's really cold here and that sounds so warm and comfy. I think Paul wants more of a roasted type ham. So maybe a glazed ham of some sort for tonight and scalloped tomorrow??

We shall see.

What are your favorite glazes for ham?

I just rubbed my babybacks down and will cook them low and slow on the Ducane in a few hours, with some apple chips on a burner. I'll probably grill some potato wedges, too. And smother them in ranch.

We're having the steamed snow crab clusters we never got to Friday, with twice-baked potatoes and salad.

Well, I am going to the in-laws for their family Christmas (try getting 20 people from all parts of the province together for Christmas Eve when they usually celebrate). They have had turkey for the last few years that it is on another day, but this year MIL is making the traditional rouladen and I couldn't be more thrilled!!!

Only downside, try as I may, I am STILL having to take my boring old mustard glazed carrots. But I am also taking a goat cheese appetizer. 20 people is a good way to get rid of the whole pound at once.

Just realized this is the fourth night in a row I haven't cooked or eaten at home. Hmmm, wonder how long I can keep this going.....Uncle Bob, got any leftover chied fricken?

Sattie, my dear dear friend, why didn't you tell me this sooner. I might have given up MIL's rouladen for this!

I made a ginormous lasagna yesterday for the soul purpose of my not caring to cook on Sunday nights.

Roasted beef with the trimmings - the beef was lovely and tender.
