Dinner tonight? What's cookin 12/21?

Morning......
Anyone cooking today? I have many things to do around here, rest, relax, stay calm (aren't any planned events).

I'm thinkin "a warm the cockles of your heart" soup is in order. Got it. Since I broke down and bought many potatoes, I think I'll do the Restaurant quality baked potato soup recipe I found online years ago. It's got all the ingredients of super stuffed baked potatoes but in soup form. With that the bread we had last night toasted in the oven with butter and parmesan cheese on top. Raw vegetables in olive oil and vinegar with s&p will be the veggie. DH eats so many more of them that way. DH has been asking for home made apple sauce so I can do that too. It's easy enough.

Enjoy your day...and by the way, what are you making for dinner?

we're going to try to take my son for pics with a mall santa tonight. 2nd attempt. the first one scared me, umm, i mean my boy... yeah, that's it, my son was scared... and i, he started crying, so we'll try again tonight.

then dw walks me thru the mall, and points at things that she might want for christmas (like a good hunting dog). it's all the growling and scratching that freaks out the store clerks.

so, since we'll be getting home late, i'm lobbying for sushi/sashimi take out.

I have no idea...

I'm likely on my own for dinner, but with all the things I need to get done (NOT Christmas shopping, that's done!), I'm likely looking at yet another Wednesday without dinner.

(I do have shopping to do, but it's grocery store, hardware store type shopping. Gotta get ready for the inbound relatives...)

I have ham and leftover white rice that I need to use. Throw in some pea pods, scrambled eggs, etc. and fried rice is what I am having for dinner tonight. Not sure what else to have maybe some miso or egg drop soup.

Tonight we are cleaning out the fridge to make room for the acres of food I am buying tomorrow after work in anticipation of the arrival of the in-laws.

mudbug it sounds like you are having a potluck out of your fridge. Sounds good to me. I also have some beef burgundy and potato soup in my fridge, but I don't think that will go well with the fried rice.

SC, your leftovers sound better than ours. We have:

Rotel dip
some slow-cooked chicken with tomatoes
about 2 cups of cream of mushroom soup
a tired-looking head of lettuce
about 2 servings of apple cobbler/crisp
some probably spoiled and/or dried-out corn tortillas

Daughter just headed downstairs to the big TV with a bowl of chickie noodle soup.

I forgot I also have some pad thai in the fridge also. I have been working on cleaning out my freezer. The thing is everytime I take something out of the freezer the dish I make usually has leftovers. So, that means those go into the freezer. The neverending cycle of freezer to stove and back to freezer again. I have even been pawning off food on my brother to help with cleaning out the fridge and freezer. I have been really bad about not rotating stuff in my freezer.

We had coldcut sandwiches and green olives again, but we ate early in the day. DH got hungry (he has one of those infamous Italian appetities ) so I made him some oven fries. Then I got hungry later and we split a small Margaritta pizza
