We just came back from the inlaws where ds and I lived off ham because our other options were things like velvetta cheese dip & hot dogs wrapped in bacon .. did I mention the hot dogs were bright red somehow? :barf:

I'm thinking tomorrow is going to be some sort of baked fish with roasted veggies & maybe wild rice.

This thread is making me want to go grocery shopping!!!

Last night I made baked chicken and then topped it with spicy hot sauce (like you'd have on wings), and let that cook into the cicken for a few minutes. Twas delicious!!

Ok so changed our dinner plans tonight because I didn't see any fish I liked at the store...

So it's jerk chicken over rice with peppers & pineapple, broccoli and carrots on the side ... and for some reason stuffed mushrooms.

We ended up eating out last night for my birthday. I had sushi, DP had steak. I'm not cooking until after Christmas! I'll probably make a quiche and a pumpkin pie to bring to my mom's house though.

Not sure yet for tonight. Definitely no leftovers, my Christmas dinner was a flop!

Note to self- DO NOT try new recipes for the holidays when the stores are closed and you can't go get anything else.

aww christy - sorry to hear that

last night we got takeout from a local kosher deli - corned beef, pastrami, tongue & roast beef. Plus I made latkes. & there were sour pickles and cole slaw.

we had bobka & rugalach for dessert and I had a pineapple & blackberries from my organic co-op.

tonight I made a roast chicken, we had some leftover (from the freezer) turkey pot pie from thanksgiving (I've been pulling it out in quarters). I made latkes tonight with a carrot & a sweet potato shredded in - that was good ...plus baby broccoli - and wine & challah. and more bobka for dessert.

yum

When you sober up you will have to give more detail. I don't believe I have ever had New Mexican food.

Tonight dd and I had w.w. spaghetti tossed with homemade alfredo sauce and steamed broccoli. I was supposed to make us some cupcakes for dessert but it was a looong day and that never happened. Oh, dd also had a salad.

Last night ended up being take out so tonight will be the shepherds pie.
we still have some soup left too, so that will be tomorrow nights dinner.
I hope these meals will use up the rest of the leftovers because I dont want to freeze them for later.
