Official Dinner Thread for Thursday the 13th

Dinner will be an individual medley for us tonight. SO is having a TJs wonton soup or ravioli. She hasn't decided yet. I'm having a bowl of heresh, a recipe from my mom for an old family fave. Basically gruel made with chicken and hulled wheat and served with brown butter.

I made a chicken pot pie with yesterday chix, extra carrots and potato too, along w/ peas, a little onion and gravy -sauce. Over salted the sauce. blech. Lettuce salad with blue cheese dressing on the side.

Meanwhile, SO made a very good chicken stock with the carcass for soup tomorrow. She makes the best chicken soup.

Everything looks and sounds wonderful folks!
Ross, do save me a piece of pie, would you, thanks.

I finally found the leftover Prime Rib Roast chunks that I brought
back from our family celebration at Christmas (I'll "catch you up" on that later ).

I had been searching for it the past coupla days and was starting to panic... what had I done with that!? That ain't cheap stuff!

So it'll be Rib Roast, Baked Potatoes and TJ's fresh Hariot Verts

Brownies Ala Mode for dessert

I made shrimp Scampi. I thought of making salads, too, but I had only enough time and energy to make either salads or dessert. Ross will be pleased that I chose the latter.

Strawberry shortcake with scratch biscuits.

Frigging cold in Northern MN (-45F windchill). Can I please get back to Ontario. Anyway, I made potato salad and brats for the KN. Cold, frigging cold. I am wearing my Mom's down jacket in the house. The KN has the thermostat set at 78 F, but there is a draft.

We had baked chicken thighs with macaroni salad, sliced tomatoes and cucumbers. Store-bought Valentine's Day mini-cupcakes for dessert.
