I bought some shrimp, but in the freezer it went, so it might just be a bowl of cereal tonight.

Tonight I am making my curried chicken (using a Granny Smith apple instead of the usual Gala), left over candied sweet potatoes and pan-fried cornbread.

I thought about that as well, as I bought some salmon, but I put it in the freezer also.

I shop for supplies/vittles every two weeks and on those days, it's Buck's day to cook. Today was said shopping day and we were supposed to have had scallop quiche and spinach salad. However, Buck begged off, stating some sort of body pain and asked if, instead, we could do a "mini" reenactment of Christmas dinner.

Hey, who am I to argue? I LOOOOOOVE turkey, stuffing, etc. and there are plenty of leftovers. So...guess what we're having?

That's okay. The scallops will hit the freezer for another time.

Yeah! Turkey again!!!

I warmed up some french bread and broiled some brie. Served it with salsa and salami and roasted garlic. A favorite from this New Mexican restaurant Cafe Pasquals Dinner Menu

I will be happy to post it. I am just going out to get groceries - have to rely on DH between working shifts as we are having an unnaturaly white Christmas season and even though I am from the prairies, I do not drive in the stuff here! Anyway the gnocchi turned out great and my "student" went home with a few of my cookbooks under her arm!

I will patiently wait for it to be posted. I'm in Calgary, just drive beyond the market and keep going till you get here
and listen, what cookbooks? do you have some? what kinds? what do they include? can you tell, I'm interested.

My parents and I had taco salad for dinner. I was not impressed with the quality of the ground beef, it was too fatty for me. The last time I went grocery shopping I made the mistake of buying the 15%, I normally buy the 7%.
