What's for Dinner, Tuesday, Feb 6, 2007?

It's still cold here today so I'm rummaging in the pantry for soup ingredients for me. I think I'll put together a chicken stock base and load it with white beans, spinach, carrots, chopped tomatoes, garlic, red onion and some cheese tortellini. I've pulled left-over stuffed peppers out of the freezer for DH.

What are you having today?

Had some leftover chickpea soup so decided to make Hummus with it. Also did guacamole, and a salad consisting of rocket, mushroom & cheese.

I am having an unexpected four mouths showing up for dinner, grumble grumble. So plan B is, potato soup made with canned potatoes, need to find a loaf of bread in the freezer, and a pumpkin pie we were sent home with over the week-end. My fear is they will come, along with the snow, and be stuck here overnight...aaaarrrrrrgggghhhhhh

not a happy camper

A friend gave me a nice venison roast yesterday, so I made chili while cooking last nights dinner. I've got pinto beans soaking now and will fix them and some jalapeno/chedder cornbread to accompany the chili tonight
Brrrrrr, it's cold!

Slight change of plan, a mixture of filled pasta nfrom supermarket: Agnolotti al nero di seppia con salmone (black with salmon filling), and Agnolotti casereci con carciofi (white with artichoke filling) and an excellent bottle of spumante, that cost 80 cents!

This happens to us so many times. Tonight will be another of those nights. Waiting for HH to get home (time always uncertain) so we can face the gym before thinking about food.

I picked up some smoked chicken and flour tortillas so am making smoked chicken quesadillas with Monterey Jack cheese. I have some guacamole, chopped cilantro,red onion, to add on. I picked up some extra avocados and a grapefruit and pomegranate seeds at the store and those will be a salad. Plan to use some avocado oil and grape fruit juice with salt and pepper as well as the pomegranate seeds over the top. I am going to try something kind of goofey for dessert, slices of blood oranges lightly sprinkled with vanilla sugar then a small scoop of orange sorbet..I can't wait to see how that flies around here

Everyones meals sound wonderful to me today. I started to respond back to everyone and ran out of finger power. For all of you in the deep freeze, stay warm, cozy up with your cutie, and sip on some good hot tea. Oh, have some for me too............!

Lefse, my soup tends to grow exponentially. My entire dutch oven is still full of it so you'd be more than welcome to come eat your share and then some! By the way, did you make it to your destination with your eardrums intact???
