Remember last Sunday when I'd planned to make chicken and rice and stewed potatoes with homemade white sauce?
And then Cecil and Ducky brought a smoked pork Boston butt and we had barbecue sandwiches instead?
And I said, "Hold that thought" regarding the chicken and rice and potatoes with white sauce, because we'd probably be having it for Sunday dinner next Sunday?
Well, guess what? It's now next Sunday, and as I said, chicken and rice and potatoes with white sauce it is.
My chicken is already cooked and picked off the bones and in the fridge, and the broth is in the ice box too. I'll peel my taters and cook them when we get home from church, because rewarmed potatoes? Ewww! Ick!
I have no idea who'll be here for dinner so I'll adjust my portions of rice and taters according to how many I have to feed. I have some canned and frozen veggies I can add to the menu if needed.
Now, what's on the menu at your place for Sunday Dinner? If you'd like to participate this week share your plans/menu in the comments.I had a somewhat vague realization that December 1st was approaching, but it kind of caught me off guard that it's here already. Do you realize that Monday is December 1st?
Since our disability checks go in the bank on the first day of the month and that's our only income, everything for our routine monthly expenses and our Christmas gifts and goodies will come out of that money.
And I usually do all my monthly shopping in one day.
For some reason, this year that seems a little overwhelming. I'm not ready at all and I don't have my mental gift list prepared or my Christmas goody list finalized. I don't know if I can get it all together by Monday or not. Wish me luck.I have some pics from Thanksgiving at Jessica's to share. We had 10 people there and we had a great time and the food was wonderful. Jessica did a great job preparing her portion of the food. She made MY MOM'S CHEESECAKE for the first time and it turned out absolutely fabulous!
CECIL'S hubby didn't make it home for Thanksgiving. As a matter of fact, he just got home during the wee hours of Saturday morning, but praise the Lord he did make it home and safely.
I just realized that it looks like Emmy
has her finger up her nose in this pic,
but if you enlarge it you'll see that she
only has it in her mouth, not her nose.
Oy.My pumpkin pie and Jessica's cheesecake.My humongous pan of dressing.
I wasn't even kidding, folks.Jessica's banana pudding and my
FIL's homemade chocolate pecan clusters.Clockwise from top left: Kidney bean salad,
whole cranberry sauce, jellied cranberry
sauce and celery sticks.Clockwise from top left: Asparagus,
homemade giblet gravy,
baked beans and corn.
(Rabbit trail: Am I the only one who
remembers Porky Pig pronouncing
asparagus as "as-puh-RAH-gus" on one
of the Looney Tunes cartoons?
I pronounce it that way
at least half the time.)A shot down the bar of all the food.A flattering shot of me, Jessica's lovely
Christmas template. There's only one hitch in that plan:
I have to make the header first.
I'm going to be really busy over the next few days,
so I hope to find time to work on it soon.
Who knows, I may even get it done later
this evening, but don't hold me to that.
And after this epic post, I'm going to
wish everyone a great Sunday.
May God meet all your needs,
and may you have enough to share.
