Sunday, 1/9/2011, What's cooking?

Well it will either be meatloaf, meatballs or chili. Can you tell I have ground beef to use!! LOL And I wanna try making dry beans for the first time in my pressure cooker; for the chili.

Any plans?

I plan on doing a complete revamp of the fridge. I can't even get a stalk of celery in there.

I know there's food in there from Christmas...and the trash is picked up on Monday, time to clean.

Tomorrow, on Sunday...:) I will be baking a mac 'n cheese with bacon and broccoli.

I don't really have a clue yet. Unless James wants something specific I might make hot dogs and macaroni and cheese for him, plus either cauliflower or broccoli (or some of each). For me, it will be an assortment of vegetables, fruit, and nuts. I have some fresh cauliflower and broccoli that need to be eaten soon, as well as some carrots. I will be shopping tomorrow, but I want to eat what is in there first.

"Smells like Thanksgiving". When I first developed this recipe, it was with Chicken. But I have some Turkey Cutlets to make it with. They did not thaw out in time to have on Saturday so it is Sunday's Dinner.

Clean out the fridge day: Breakfast was turkey ham and Swiss cheese on honey wheat, toasted open faced.

Lunch will be my taster cup (12 oz. cobalt blue glass) filled with MsMofet's Confetti Soup. I did manage to save a container with 2 C for the freezer, as well as a 2 C container of the seasoned chicken broth.

Dinner will be the chicken meat from the chicken stock, I'm still thinking about how to fix it.

Nope, but am using cream of mushroom soup, a little pimento and a package of cooked colored bell peppers I saved and froze in a baggie.

I am going to marinade the chicken in some cooking sherry. I know, I know, but I've got to use it up and sherry sounds good for ala king.

Woke up with the first cold I have had in years. Made some chicken noodle soup for lunch. Feeling too miserable to do any real cooking but if someone were to make me a feast I would eat it just for the comfort of it. Not really hungry just want to eat. The soup did what I wanted it to, soothed my throat. Those grandmothers of ours really knew what they were doing, chicken soup wise.

I hope you feel better soon. If you can find rosehip and hibiscus tea drank many cups with a bit of honey. Loaded with vitamin c and it really does help.
