What's for Dinner on Sunday Nov 16th

It's a gorgeous fall day here today, which means no rain, and I have a lot planned for dinner tonight.
I've had a pork butt on the smoker since 6:00 AM, so pulled pork sandwiches are on the menu. I made up some creamy coleslaw and that's chillin'. (oop , I forgot about those eggs I was boiling and have no idea how long they were boiling for ) OK, back now.
I've got a recipe picked out for macaroni salad that may require the boiling of some more eggs . My first attempt at macaroni salad. I'm going to jazz up some Bush's beans and also make up a lot of ABTs..... I'm going to put some chicken leg quarters on the Q, too.

And you........

Sounds good to me!
What do you do with your ABTs? Ever try something other than bacon as a wrap?
I like a cream cheese and smoked oyster stuffing!

So far the only deviation will be today's ABTs. The store was out of the cheddar filled litl smokies, so I'm making do with plain I was thinking of sticking them in the food processor with some cheddar, but I doubt I'll do that.
I can easily see ABTs made with cream cheese and shrimp, one of my favorite ways to stuff jalapenos

Packaged up 10 pounds of chicken leg/thigh quarters yesterday and saved some for today's dinner. Will put in the crock-pot with whatever tickles my fancy, tarragon for sure, and have with rice and a salad.

Had a cool front move through our area last night and tonight suppose to be in the low 40's so I got an inkling for chili. It's been cooking in the crock pot since 8am this morning.

Grilled steaks if we can take the cold outside (37 degrees right now)

If not, it may be the perfect night for UB's chicken stew!!

gorgeous day here too sans the fire and smoke that's plaguing our state.

tonight, it's salad and lasagna using my bolognese sauce and lots of other good stuff in it. here's the kicker, for the noodles, I'm going to attempt using the lefse that I made the other night, now frozen. it's from potatoes after all and thought it'd be okay to use since gnocchi is potato too and 'it' works.

fingers crossed..........
