Well, it’s not my menu, since we’re going to D.’s parents’ house for Thanksgiving Dinner. I think we’re having a Ham, although his mom wasn’t definite on that yet. But we have come up with some dishes that we’ll be bringing… Tasty yet simple, as we’ll both be working before and after the traditional Turkey Day.
Featured from The Food Groove will be:
* D’s famous Pumpkin Cheesecakes. Here’s a link to a pic and here’s the recipe. He’s planning on making those tonight, even though he’s not feeling well. 😦
* My Baked Artichoke Dip.
* D.’s Pasta Salad, which is a variation on this one.
* Deviled Eggs, stuffed with a Sweet & Sour Relish and some Cream Cheese. We’re not big on the yolks here… at least not in the traditional Deviled Eggs way.
Tonight I’m going to throw together something rice-y. The Brown Rice is cooking as I type… I got the idea from this post o’ mine as I was looking for the links to the above. Easy, fairly quick, and if nothing else a good lunch for tomorrow, even if we don’t have it for dinner. I was also thinking of Scrambled Eggs…
There’s a potluck lunch at work for me tomorrow, but not much of the dishes that I saw on the list looked all that appealing to me. I am a picky eater. There, I said it. Italian Sausage something… Not big on sausage. Chips (i.e. Fritos) and a packaged taco dip… The woman has brought this before, and although the dip is pretty good, it’s also chock full of MSG. Someone is making a Red Beans and Rice dish… I am interested in that. The Seven-Layer Dip someone else is bringing might be good. Then there’s sweets, soda and other chips… I do like potato chips; I’m not big on sweets, in general; and I rarely drink soda. Water is my preferred lunchtime beverage. And coffee. So, it looked to me like ‘MEH’ in the lunch fare offerings for tomorrow, so I thought it might be a good idea to have something on hand, just in case. 😉
And don’t get me started on the fact that the “organizers” of this potluck lunch decided yesterday to ask people to bring something for tomorrow. That’s just not right… I’d much rather wait for a real homemade meal and fixings on Thursday/Thanksgiving anyway!
