I picked up two loaves of REAL Italian bread (few and far between in California. Californians think French and Italian breads are interchangable!) from an Italian deli on the way home from work last night, so I will be finishing off the last of the Italian sausage and peppers. I also picked up a 10-inch lattice topped cherry pie for half price ($3.45), which I will be cutting into 8 pieces (not 12) and having for dessert for the next week or so.

Yum I'm hungry now from reading your posts.

I think Madeleine will have some more homemade chicken soup (her turn to be sick now ) I am not sure yet what I will leave everyone for supper, but for dessert they will have some orange pound cake with lemon glaze. Mmmmmmmmmmmm!

Going to have sauerkraut and pork ribs. Of course I have to have mashed potatoes, so I can put my sauerkraut on top of them, with a little butter. Umm. Not sure about a dessert yet.

I baked some potatoes last night so we're having smashed potatoes (topped with pesto) and chicken thighs that I also baked last night. I love cooking ahead and quick meals at dinner time!

I have a pork tenderloin in the slow cooker. Soon it will fall apart beautifully. We plan on making red chile with it and having frito pies.

Dessert will be http://www.discusscooking.com/forums...chocolate+cake Hershey's now make a Special Dark Cocoa. I used 1/2 cup regular cocoa and 1/4 cup special dark for both the cake and the frosting. Makes it rich and delicious, not to mention a very dark cake. Though, using all special dark doesn't have better results imo.

Kadesma-
as usual, your dinner sounds great! yum!
