What's for Dinner, Fri., Dec. 21, 2018

I'm serving up the lamb stew the RG made for me. It's in the slow cooker now and looks delicious! Along with it will be a tossed green salad made of both spinach and ruffly green lettuce. This will be one of my favorite salads with shredded cheddar cheese, chopped green pepper, ceci beans, red onion, and Thousand Island dressing.

In addition, I'm making some cornbread muffins. I think chopped cheddar cheese cubes in them, too, plus diced jalapeno.

Dessert: spicy chai tea and a chocolate covered biscotti.

1. sounds great!

I got a good one, roasted chicken thighs (a little wine, lemon pepper, dash of worcestershire), pasta rotini with a pesto/alfredo suace which I usually do some sauteed mushroom and onion before adding the sauce and of course a little wine, and what I literally call "crack brussel-sprouts"
(marinate the little suckers in some maple and balsamic vinaigrette, chop some raw bacon over them and roast till crunchy and carmelized...dear god I can eat the whole pan!)


Here's to a sweet Winter Solstice dinner for you too! That salad sounds choice!

2. Burgers! It's warm here for a day so summer (ish) food it is

That ground chuck would have become chili were it cold

5. Chicken stew with dumplings.

It's a standard of mine and I just love it.

It's hard to make a small enough amount for just one person. I've decided to give up on freezing leftover chicken stew, because it has potatoes and they simply don't freeze well. Sigh. Lucky for me I really, really love my chicken stew so much that eating it three days in a row will not be a hardship.

And that will take me to Christmas Eve, and dinner with a friend. I am looking forward to it.
