Who's cookin tonight, March 6, Monday?

............well, I will be cooking.

we had a good dinner last night. fillet mignon roast, huge baked pots, Sandra Lee's pinwheel appetizers, spinach and mushrooms with iced water.
we choaked it down while watching the Oscars and trying to fatham how a Pimp song got best song of the year. when we picked up our forks from the carpet, we reminisced over the good ole days of beautiful songs from years gone by. oh those were the days............

I took out a package of boneless skinless chicken thighs and I'll be doing Paula Deen's version with soaking first in sour cream and buttermilk, then coating in a crumb mixture, stuffed baked potato skins and brussels sprouts with grated cheese and bacon and drizzled butter. DH loves desserts so I'll do an apple cobbler with nuts/crumbs on top then baked.

Anyone enjoy the Oscars?

How bout you? cookin?

I have a big chunk of ham that I need to use up tomorrow. I'm not sure if I'll just bake it or cut it up in chuncks and make split pea soup.

I have no earthly idea. Hopefully PeppA comes home today. If she does, I get to go grocery shopping.

We will finish off the stuffed round zucchine we made yesterday. To go with it I would like to try a new variation of Tabouli dressed with Tajine we bought some days ago. It will be interesting...

Amber, I made a rib roast last night and have A LOT of leftover meat...can your beef stew be made with already cooked meat? If so, can you share the recipe 'Beef stew w/dumplings'?

Tonight, having fish chowder w/ some crusty french bread and a salad. My children will be soooo delighted

I used the recipe from the Joy of Cooking years ago and think it's one of, if not, the best I've ever eaten. I love the stuff.

We're chopping up the leftover Sunday Roast, potatoes, onions and carrots and adding the next-to-the-last quart of homemade vegetable soup. It's so cold here today - add a skillet of cornbread & that oughta do it.

That sounds good. It's just me tonight, so I will heat up some leftover lentil soup.
