Sister is coming over for supper and to keep me company while I start my Xmas baking marathon. Made a big pot of chili last nite so we'll have that. And I got a rotisserie chicken during lunch so I'll make chicken and biscuits too.

Mediocre (at best) buffet food at a Christmas party was last nights dinner. Thankfully the entertainment at the party was great so it helped make up for food that wasn't even over sterno to keep warm.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.

Tonight is BBQ pulled pork. As long as the SO plugged in the crock pot.

This week's menu: (he actually picked his before the deadline of Saturday!! Ok it's not really a deadline but it's easier to make the list when I have it earlier than Monday morning)

Lentil soup with a french loaf
Chicken, Cheese & white wine with rice
Meatloaf with pieroges and corn on the cob
Fisherman's stew with Foccacia

braised boneless short ribs
a questionable pumpkin pie
brussel sprouts - maybe with pancetta

I really want polenta to go with it but I have no milk, no parmesan and nobody to stand and stir it for me.

Thanks! We had fisherman's stew at Kouzzina (disney world) last year and I wanted to try some kind of seafood variety so this came to mind. This will be the first time trying the recipe but it looks pretty good. I won't be able to find mussels though.

That looks like it makes a lot, so what time should I be over?

Oh, allrecipes, how I hate you.
Don't boil your scallops, fish, and shrimp first, and don't add them with your clams, but after. They take less time to cook than it takes clams to open.

Pizza and salad! It was yummy.

Also, a nice big piece of pumpkin pie.

Not sure if I've posted this recipe before, but I'm making this tonight. It is so yummy and even better the next day. This time I added carrots and some diced tomatoes.

Jaynee, I swear I must make some variation of a soup like that almost every week. It's just too good!

A lot of WDW recipes are available online (they have a printed book). You might want to try this http://www.foodbuzz.com/recipes/2763...a-by-cat-cora-

Ok, and there are almost two sticks of butter in that recipe, which 1) ********, and I say this as a professional cook --- we don't fear the butter and put it in just about everything with abandon. And 2) San Francisco dish and influenced by Italian and Portuguese immigrants --- no butter. It's olive oil (Italians especially don't look too kindly on many fish and dairy combinations).
Save all that butter for dessert.

And unless you're using fresh crab, it doesn't need to be cooked, so it should be tossed at the end to warm up.
Frankly, I toss things like scallops and fish in once the clams have opened, turn off the heat, and leave them to poach in the broth, which is more than hot enough to cook them.

Thanks Saria! I hadn't read the instructions yet, will make it on Tuesday so I'm glad you told me. ETA: I planned on using olive oil, that's a lot of butter!

Springy: Any time!

I was at a holiday party friday night with cold food too! No entertainment to distract from it, though, unless you consider DH's coworkers taking advantage of the open bar/free cab entertaining.

I'm thinking with the right folks that could be quite entertaining!

We had three comedians and the last guy was a doozie. The look on some peoples faces at his dirty stuff was priceless, but he was super funny.

And for some reason a lady was walking around with Christmas lights braided into her floor length (yes, to the dern FLOOR) hair and one guy was in a Christmas themed adult onsie. Good times.
