What's for dinner Thursday, Dec. 8th?

I have a pot of homemade chili simmering as I type. Not sure what we'll have with it yet though.

I cooked up an 8 1/2 pound ham late last night and now I'm trying to figure out what to do with it. Ham sammys would be the easy way out. I'm really digging buck's idea about pineapple skewers but it's a wee bit too windy to fire up the grill and putting on the Carharts seems like overkill just to cook something. Hm. *think, think, think* I dunno, I guess I'll just keep an eye on the weather. If not that, maybe omelettes or something.

You always list the most wonderful sounding dinners Bucky, it feels as though I just read the menu at a top notch restaurant

I'm making a warm chicken cesar salad w/homemade croutons, and a veg dish which I haven't quite settled on yet (lol, still have 45 minutes to ponder ).

Oh a margarita sounds soooooooooo good! Lucky duck. DH and I go to a really good authentic Mexican resturant in a neighboring town. They have the best margarita's I've ever had. Last time I decided to have 2 vs. my usual 1..............whooooeeeeee......I was just a tad bit tipsy . Don't worry DH was in charge of the driving

damp, put some of ronjohn style anti-freeze (it ain't no ethelyne glycol) in your blood, and get out there. (oot there, for you canadians ).

just don't use the hand over the coals trick to tell the cooking temp. if you can't feel your fingers, they might cook a little bit on ya.

DC, ignore the link because for some reason it goes to a recipe for red velvet cake.

Bucky's dinners always sound like that, I just wish I could eat at that restaurant every night.

dh is working tonight and I've got some holiday shopping planned, we will probably just pick something up.

Clean out the fridge night here. Theres a bit of spaghetti, some sausage, salad and some various pastas and rice concoctions. Should be enough to feed us all. I am working tonight so they will have to fend for themselves.

Sierra, I was wondering what ham had to with red velvet cake and thought it might be an offshoot of the "Strange Food Combos" thread! J/K, I really appreciate the thought, tho!!! Buck, I think I am gonna do the skewers after all, blizzard be d*mned! Ham, pineapple and onions will get the shaft (literally.) I'm already working on the antifreeze so I figure that by the time the snow starts blowing, I'll be sufficiently lubed to complete the task ahead!

Looks like it's spagetti and meatballs for us - perfect complement to the red wine antifreeze!!


PS - If I drink a bunch of antifreeze before going out later to clear the walkways, can I be cited for operating a snowblower under the influence?

I'm willing to bet cash that there's probably a law on the books somewhere that you can get cited, sadly enough!

only if there's no snow, and you keep running over a stack of styrofoam cups for effect, ronjohn!
actually, that might be fun.
