Dinner Wednesday 26th November

Gosh I get to start it - I guess all you guys over the pond are busy with your preparations.

We had burgers, home oven fries and peas.

No kidding, pdswife! Tonight, I'm making turkey stock, cranberry sauce and pumpkin cheesecake, so I'm too busy to make dinner!

DH still has a sore mouth, so he'll probably have more minestrone soup. Not sure what I'll do. I think I have some posole in the freezer - maybe I'll thaw that. I have some NYT bread dough rising in the fridge, so I'll make a loaf of that, too.

I'm doing fusion. I have two Italian sausages that need cooking. I also have leftover rice and a bit chicken that will morph into Chicken Fried Rice. I guess it's our Italian Chinese night.

I have a refrigerator full of food and nothin' to eat. Traditionally, we order pizza and mussels on this night.

Heh, heh, heh.

I asked if DH would make me a marinara sauce for dipping appetizers tomorrow. Of course he made too much, though at my request for freezing. But I'm afraid that's not going to happen because he's decided to make meatballs and boil up some pasta for dinner tonight.

Yippee! I don't have to figure out dinner tonight!

You mean you don't celebrate Thanksgiving, miniman???
They were your ancestors that started it, not mine.

I should cook the brats I thawed yesterday and then decided to have pork chops. So that'll "probably" be dinner, along with green beans.

I've got to swing by KFC one of these days, Babe. I don't think I've stopped there since last summer, early.

My stuff is slowly chuggin' along.
And the food is cooking, too

supper tonight was yummy, though out of "packages".

I had a "gourmet" loaded-baked-potato soup mix I had purchased at a fair, which I made tonight. I dressed it up with a boiled potato-celery-onion mixture added to the soup mix and milk (just in case it was going to need help! LOL)

I also made some savory garlic & cheese drop biscuits using a mix from "Aunt Martha's" that just needed milk added. Didn't have to dress that up. It was good and easy. :)

Now need to grind the cranberries and oranges for holiday relish (our favorite method for the cranberry side dish), and bake the pumpkin pie tomorrow morning.

There was some corned beef left so we had Reubens, or should I say husband did, I don't care for the sauerkraut, but like the rest of the ingredients. I was so hungry I forgot to take a photo!

I'm hurting right now (kidney stone-like pain) and just asked James to go get KFC. Mashed potatoes and gravy sound like just the thing for me right now. Meanwhile I will take some extra-strength Tylenol and a hot bath and pray this doesn't continue into tomorrow.
