What's for supper 12-24-2018 ~ Christmas Eve 2018 ~

I made a pot of chicken stew a few days ago. All I have to do is heat it, toss in the baby spinach to limp it up, and eat. Supper, easy peasy!

What are you making for supper? Remember, those cookies and milk are supposed to be for Santa...

The kitchen is clean, the dishwasher is empty, so I went light and easy and feasted on a tuna sandwich and an apple.

A local supermarket had filet mignons on sale for $10 / lb. a few weeks back, so I picked up a few for the freezer. I took two out for tonight's dinner, and as temperatures are fairly mild (low 30's), they went on the grill. Sides were wild rice w/ bacon and mushrooms, roasted brussel sprouts.

Mom wanted me to make my shrimp and pasta for lunch, so I ran to Kroger and rounded up what I needed for that. Mom wants the recipe, but there isn't one. I just make it. I made my annual appearance in church at dinnertime with the family, and we are going to have chips and queso now.

Jr's made a bone in ham, au gratin potatoes, corn, green beans, biscuits for mid afternoon lunch. A sis in law who has sibs staying over for Christmas invited us to a big dinner tonight. We declined that invite. Too much food in one day. We'll see them all tomorrow.

That looks just delicious!!


I'm beat after preparing the four ducks for roasting in the morning and transporting to the feast at older son's house. In addition I put together a gorgeous wild rice salad from a recipe I found this morning and just had to make. I'll post the recipe for it after Christmas. My Pineapple salsa is also prepared to make the 20 mile trip. The rest of the brood will fill in the menu blanks.
Anyway, I'm glad I had a TJ's lasagna in the freezer because that's what's for dinner here.

All you need now is three French hens, two turtle doves and a partridge.

Pork ribs with Baby Ray sauce. French cut string beans and mushrooms sautéed in olive oil and seasoned. Pirate did all the cooking. Since I am limited on green veggies, I had only a small portion. But they were so good. I could have eaten all of them.

I made a big batch of stuffing today. Bread, sage, olive oil, onion, golden raisins, pecans, chicken broth, celery, onion, currants, tart apple. Had a big bowl with mushroom gravy left over from Thanksgiving.

In the next several mornings, I will put stuffing into waffle iron and heat until warm and a bit crispy. Then top with a couple of poached eggs.

Heaven!

A really nice, quiet, simple dinner her together as a family. Just us three,; nothing to rush or get done, for a change.

While my wife was making coconut macaroons to give as gifts, my son decided to experiment with flour, salt, a bit of sugar, and water. He first made a dough, then he rolled it out trying various shapes and cuts. After we discussed what could be done with it, I ended up teaching him how to make eggdrop soup, to which he added his "dumplings".

It was delicious! The next time I'm sick, eggdrop soup with dumplings is what I want!

Later, DW made breaded, fried flounder and Polish homefries. There was also a salad with aged balsamic dressing.

My boy's eggsnot soup: (sorry about the lighting)

Busy all day cooking then cleaning the kitchen (so I can re-dirty it tomorrow) and wrapping SO's gifts. SO gave me a drink and I responded by taking a long winter's nap.

Dinner was snacking on crackers, cheeses, pepperoni and pickles. Later milk and paklava.

I spent the day prepping the pulled pork, poppers and making various versions of a NC vinegar sauce.

My wife treated me to Manwich, which just happens to be one of my favorite food groups.

Gee thanks. Now I want a waffle iron. Holiday Stuffing is my very favorite food any time of the year.

What is in porchetta meatballs? Sounds interesting.
