What's for Dinner, Monday, Jan. 22?

I'm thinking it's good weather for chili dogs (what sides?) or tourtiere tonight.

Somebody please help me make up my mind.

We are having a roast chicken! It feels like ages since we had a whole chicken and I'm treating it like gold. We are going to have roast potatos, green beans, carrots with capers and some mashed squash alond with gravy and a stuffing. I might roast a couple of plums to have with yoghurt if we can fit pudding in. Its not so cold here seven degrees celcius, but the air is heavy and dank and its kind of making our bones feel cold.

Boy, it's nice to be home for change and able to make something decent for dinner.

get this - when I went to get the ground pork for my tourtiere, it was the same price as ground veal.

Shouldn't veal cost a little more? Always seems pricey to me usually.

I vote for tourtiere!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We're having leftover crab soup plus I "did" a pork butt in the oven. So it will be an odd combination of crab soup, lettuce wedges, and bbq sandwiches.

Not at all odd for "ME"? or just in general not at all odd

I just found out my son is at home with one of his 6' friends chowing down on dinner already! I threatened him "good" - there better be some left for my dinner and DH's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After the day I've had, I just dug put some pizza dough, pulled some pizza sauce from the freezer and used the rest of the salami,mozzarella, sauteed some mushrooms and onions, opened some sliced black olives dumped it all on the pizza crust with the sauce sprinkled the top with parm and that was it. I did a small salad, and there is lemon sorbet or rocky road ice cream if anyone is interested Next time I get handed 3 runny nosed, fever ridden little babies, after I kept telling their moms yesterday, keep them in it's to cold to play outside in just a light sweatshirt..Dinner will be OUT!!!! Lordy I'm tired..Those poor babies were so miserable all day..I spent most of it holding one or the other...Bed is looking better by the minute
