yogurt or jello or creamed soup of some kind, my day at the dentist again yesterday and honestly, he tried to kill memy poor mouth, I'm on my way to being really skinny now, can't help it, can't eat
on the upside, made 5 batches of hokey pokey for work friends and supervisors this morning, finishing last one right now, using maple syrup and brown sugar, oh so fluffy really really really whipped that baking soda into it, sore arms = great results

LEFSElover, I hope your mouth feels better soon!

I'll be making a beef and tortilla bake for supper, with corn on the side. We ended up with a bunch of leftover cookies from a Christmas party we went to on Sunday, so that will probably be our dessert.

Are you sure those 5 batches are going to make it to your coworkers?!?!?

Today's DH's birthday so we're having steak with caramelized onions and a red wine sauce, roasted new potatoes, sourdough rolls, salad. Dessert is a black and white angel food cake topped with fresh whipped cream with pieces of Heath Bar folded in.

Right now I am thinking of making porcupine balls, mashed potatoes/gravy, buttered corn and garlic bread.

Update - My thinking changed, now we are having burgers and fries !
DH loves burgers and he is sick with a bad cold , this may perk him up !

Porkchops. I've got left over mashed, so, since I just read another thread on it, I think I'll add some onion and cheese, flour them and fry them up ( I have a new tub of duck fat!!). Found a freezer bag of corn kernels I grilled in the fall and took of the cobs. Made a stove top appler cobbler last night with dried cherries and apricots, so that's dessert.
