What's for Dinner Saturday January 2nd?

So, everyone finished with all the holiday leftovers?

I am going to make spaghetti and meatballs today as I forgot to get my beef out yesterday so Dad and I ended up having meat pies made with turkey and salad.

What are you all having?

We had the second of 3 homemade pizzas yesterday and spaghetti the day before. Need something s bit more substantial so I have sirloins out thawing. Haven't figured out what I'll serve with it. Maybe some alfredo noodles or cheesy rice. I got 5 lbs of swiss and 3 lbs of cheddar for Christmas so need to find ways to use it!

no clue whats for dinner. probably leftover salads and cold cuts or breakfast again using cold cuts and cheeses.

BUT this was Brunch - pan fried potatoes, green pepper, green onion, red onion and chopped bacon.



Scrambled eggs added and cooked till set.

The meat put out for meatballs became burgers for patty melts. DH was sanding the kitchen ceiling so I was relegated to the dining room with my appliances. Made fries with the fryer, defrosted the bread in the microwave and did the burgers and final sandwiches on the griddler!

So, not sure what dinner will be but it will be a light one after that!

Pizza for us as well. Trying a different pizza crust recipe. Mine will be traditional pepperoni, my favorite, and my partner's will have ricotta instead of tomato sauce, with ham, bacon and who knows what else!

pasta was yummy & so was the sauce. the tots liked thier chix nugs. THEN jake gave them (2 4-year-olds) kool-bursts & one of the dads gave his a caffienated pop. then they found a pack of razzles i placed from (or so i figured) thier view. they devoured half of them before relinquishing them. they went on a sugar high, went into near hysterics zipping thru the place. & my beloved tigs, that kitty was so great at maintaining his feline composure after they decided he was thier new toy. they also located my snoozing pills, although those were well from thier reach due to me & jake's babyproofng the place. after 2 falls & a near bout of subsequent tears,
other than a sticky, sneaker-printed floor & a feline that may now require sedatives, dinner was great.
guys took the kiddos for a nite at the arena.
