I have some chicken leg quarters thawing so we'll have baked lemon and herb chicken, sour cream and chive mashed potatoes and green beans with bacon and onion.

Hubby wants soup made with the last of the garden (some Swiss chard and various herbs). So I'm stewing bones right now (the remains of a chicken).

Cool Nov. 1 Dinner

I'm preparing a roasted garlic and onion cream sauce with thyme. Then I'll add the last ear of summer corn, some vine-ripened chopped tomatoes and mix it all with rigatoni. For hubby, I'll add some grilled shrimp. I'll shave some parmessiano-reggiono over mine.

Dessert - very ripe peaches poached in champagne and served with raspberry sauce and vanilla ice cream.

Sound good?

Making haddock and some other sides for my hubby, and I'll just have a bunch of veggies. I'm in the mood for roasted potatoes topped with scallions and tomatoes, cheese.

Something with chicken. We've had beef and pork and then ground beef this week. Time for some chicken. Not sure yet what I will do. Kitchenelf's sort of marsala thing maybe, coq au vin maybe, or lemony. Ken are you reading this? Opinion please?

We took some flank steak out of the freezer and I think we'll be using it to make red chile frito pies. Yum yum! For dessert, I made apple frangipane galettes today.

I've got some chicken breasts just out of the broiler and will coat them with a cranberry mustard mixed with some thyme,soy sauce,garlic and a little evoo, then coat with bread crumbs and then pop them back under the broiler to finish cooking, will have some white rice with and the sauce in the broiler pan will get some cran juice and a pat or two of butter and then poured over the rice. Have some chinese spinach ready to toss in a pan and steam a minute or so, then pour over some chopped garlic and some butter to the whole thing and salt and pepper..Cut up a contaloupe and made some dinner rolls..Dinners done..Dessert, me sitting down and not getting up til bed..It's been a Loooooong day. Two kids with unhappy tummies today..

The planets must have alligned or something because I actually cooked tonight!

I had a small package of ground beef that simply begged to be cooked. I also had some marinara in the freezer. I made a small pot of meat sauce, cooked some rigatoni, and jacked a garlic bread from work.

There was enough wine left from my daughter's birthday dinner on Sunday for a glass, which I enjoyed very much, thank you.

Whenever my son gets home from class, we'll have some cheesecake!
