I just took a pound of shrimp out of the freezer so I'm about to do some searching for new ideas. First I need to check out my MasterCook.

Roast Chicken and Spring greens for me, the DW having sprouts instead of spring greens.

Good Luck Alix :)

Good luck Alix!

We had a healthyish brunch, based around some left over split pea soup. And, because of going to rome yesterday the cupboards are looking bare. we decided to take a lazy day together andd just came back from a walk where we picked up some essentials and non essentials. Including some maple syrup, which I have been craving for ages.

And its certainly milder out, I was too warm with my coat on. I think we'll have either a carbonara tonight, or maybe a lighter pasta, and then pancakes and syrup for pudding!

Good luck Alix! After your day is complete, care to share your winning recipe? I adore chili, I think most do. Mine doesn't contain tomato of any sort as hubby suffers with acid reflux. Mine last week was divine. I got lucky. I can't wait to hear how you do on today's event! Clapping here in southern California for you!!!

I just posted what our meal turned out to be last night. Gad, what a good dinner. Again, I got lucky with my skill. Tonight. Hum...Let me look in the freezer, then I'll write more........

Still have leftover veggies, potato salad and 'crisp' from last night and it was a sweet faire, so tonight, it should be more savory.

Okay, got it. I'll do this.......
Cooks.com - Recipe - Osso Bucco
and I'll use up the reruns from last night too. Brown rice and no need of veggies as they're in the osso bucco. Plus, STRAWBERRIES AND PEACHES WITH BALSAMIC ZABAGLIONE Recipe at Epicurious.com this ought to make a good finish to a hopefully glorious meal. I will have just one tablespoon

Well, today is PeppA's birthday. I'm going to make some Seafood and Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms, snow crab, and something with shrimp. I've got 2 lbs of shrimp to play with. Probably some Scampi, as she adores that. I've got some chicken tenders marinating for the kids, which I'll bread and fry. I'll probably have to come up with one or two other sides to make everyone happy. I have some buttermilk baking mix, so I'll probably make some Faux Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits.

My husband recently came home from the hospital, after two long months.
I promised we would celebrate Christmas with our son and dear friends when he was better. So today, we're having bruschetta and shrimp cocktail for an appetizer, baby greens and grape tomato salads, chateaubriand. roasted baby potatoes, broccoli and glazed carrots and NYT bread. They will be bringing dessert. We will have wine with the various foods. I hope it all turns out, but most important, my husband is well!!!!!

dh made spagetti sauce, so we'll have that and a small salad.

For dessert I made an apple pie for dh. I don't care for apple pie so much, out of dire need I made chocolate cake for myself. It's in the oven now and smells great.
