What's for dinner tonight? 4/9/08, Wed

I bought some fish at the market yesterday, on sale, cod.
Watched RR the other day and enjoyed her version of fish tacos. I have ''all else'', the flour torts/avocado/sour cream/cabbage, so I'm doing those for dinner.

These are for dessert, never made them, I have more yeast than I do brains, so it's time to use some up. Hope they turn out, they look and sound wonderful Just googled a good sounding recipe until I came up with one that suited my fancy...

So what'r'u makin?

Oh gosh I don't know. I have to work from 1 to 9 so I won't be cooking tonight.
I guess it's going to be a "fend for yourself" dinner. So more than likely it will be soup or salad when I get home.

I am going to roast a chicken.... never roasted a whole one before usually just the pieces. I hope it goes well. Think I have picked up enough tips from browsing around here to do a sweet job with it. I am going to use fennel carrots potatos and white wine. and make a stuffing out of potato pear and garlic. Wish me luck.

I made the soup yesterday but... we ended up eating "healthy" pizza. So, soup tonight.

I am not a fennel lover but all else sounds perfect. adore the pear idea...
Do you have a thermometer for the chicken to check for doneness?
Rosemary is a good thing to toss into the cavity as well as lemons sprinkled with a bit of cinnamon................
let us know how it turns out..............

Thanks for the vote of confidence....well the Fennel is out as I did not make it to the market at lunch becasue I had to go to the bank

So I am gonna have to make it with whatever I have at home. No thermometer but it has a popper.
