What's for Dinner, Sun., Dec. 30, 2018

It's going to be catch as catch can here as I am cooking for New Year's Eve tonight. Making dinner plus that is just too much work. I think it will just be a spinach salad with raw veggies plus a sliced turkey cutlet over the salad. Thousand Island dressing.

Orange spice tea and baklava for dessert.

1. Shrimp Scampi over linguine

And a salad partially made with my brand-new spiralizer! I still don't understand how it can make such long strands from a 4" piece of carrot.

3. Scalloped sweet potato, ham and pineapple

baked with a little orange and pineapple juice, a couple gratings of nutmeg, and dotted with butter. It smells good baking, we'll see how it tastes!

19. It tasted quite good but the darn sweet potatoes

Took forever to cook, even though I had them sliced pretty thin (1/4" - really, over an hour. It was a good combination but would have been a lot better had the sweet potatoes been precooked.

31. Don't you just hate that?

I made roast chicken over a bed of carrots and shallots and even precooked the carrots but still had to remove the chicken and put the carrots back in the oven.

I used the time to make some of the chicken into chicken salad. I have been on a kick to have chicken salad on freshly baked rye cocktail bread. So good and so tiny.

5. Thanksgiving leftovers

I made turkey and gravy using frozen broth and turkey from November and served over rice.

We should have something else as well to be healthy, but I am unmotivated. Some fruit later will be good.

FLFC ate earlier with TJ and is snoozing on the couch. I am going to see if he'll make room for me too.

12. Sounds nice. I saw an organic Turkey for 79 cents a pound. I think I will go back and get it.

Turkey sounds good.

16. It was nice

0.79 is good for an organic bird.

I'm thinking of making some sort of pot pie or shepherds pie with the rest of the leftover turkey.

25. Yum, I am a fan of both. We had quite a few for dinner and the kids took the leftover so I had

very few leftovers.

32. I think Martha Stewart had a good leftover recipe years ago

take any bread, turkey, brie and some kind of jam or jelly - toast both bread in butter mixture, assemble sandwich with, from bottom, bread, jam, turkey, brie, bread and then wrap in foil and warm to gooey in oven. A new family favorite. Works for chicken too.

https://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/fettuccine-alfredo-105505
This is my go-to recipe.
For pasta, Mrs. Snark has requested the wider pappardelle pasta.
Nice glass of CabSauv

15. Welcome!

I've done this one a dozen times, or so.
The key is Parmigiano-Reggiano.
Also, I use Costco organic butter.

Snark Jr. is headed back to college in a week, and requested this dish.

Last night I had whiskey. Straight up. I didn't post it in the thread yesterday, but since you're admitting to a liquid dinner I don't feel all that ashamed.

8. Chicken soup

We're both a little under the weather and decided we needed some Jewish penicillin. I picked up a loaf of fresh bread and the Landlady(!) is making a little salad.

Tomorrow is New Years Eve and we have a feast planned. Stay tuned...

28. My hubby is making spaghetti

Itís the only thing he knows how to cook, but his homemade sauce is pretty good.

I am still too ill to stand over an oven and create anything!

Hereís to a healthier New Year, PJ!

9. Tacos tonight ...homemade Paul Newmans pineapple salsa doctored up, topped with pineapple (fresh),

seasoned ground beef, lettuce, tomato, onion, avocado,cilantro and sour cream. They were so good. The lettuce is grown locally in Cleveland and was so good ...like eating fresh greens from the garden. For dessert we had chocolate chip cookies...gluten free from my new favorite recipe and a steaming latte.

14. Sound exceptional!

Ours is salmon, asparagus and baked 'taters - simple as I've got black eyed peas, ham hock (and ham) and scored some collards for Tuesday. New Years Eve is at Vallata - THE best Italian restaurant in the Fairbanks North Star Borough! (How I rated that from a hubby of 30+ years is the question, but heck - I'll take it!)

It was going to be cheeseburgers, but we didn't take the cheese out of the freezer in time for it to thaw.

20. We have lots of cheese too

It's just that it was all in the freezer.

Audry is even starting to gain some weight back, thank goodness. We've been putting a drizzle of olive oil in her food at night. It is such a relief to see her run to us in the morning, to see her happy to go outside to piddle, and to watch her eating and drinking. We'd be heart-broken if anything happened to any of our pets.
