My hubby picked up a special coffee and Bailey's ice cream. That will be served with Oreos.

I demolished a half pound of peel-and-eat shrimp for dinner.  With lots and lots of cocktail sauce!

Last night I made a big Thanksgiving style meal and had my siblings/dad over. We will be at MIL's for Thanksgiving, so I wanted to celebrate and cook on my own. I tend to be a little possessive about my holiday cooking. (and most of my favorites aren't the same at the IL T-Day. The mashed potatoes have to be lumpy bc that's how little bro loves them and when he was a kid he did *insert cute story* the stuffing can't be made with the innards/neck meat bc it freaks SIL out, even though she grew up eating it that way, No fruit pies, only pumpkin and pecan. Green beans must be in casserole form, cranberries from a can :'( etc.)

So today we're having leftover sandwiches. I'm going to go out and get some more cranberries because I ate them all already, but other than that, it's leftovers all the way :)

Tonight I'm roasting some chicken breasts along with some green beans and red potatoes. Then we're going out for ice cream for my friends birthday.  :)

Can't decide if I'm going to do a ziti bake or meatloaf. I pulled the hamburger from the freezer, but those were the two recipes I had planned. It depends on if the mushrooms in the fridge are still good, and if they're not if I have enough time and energy to drive to the store for fresh ones.

Hmmmmm

My friend cooked for me (since I still don't have a functional kitchen: ugh!) and she made pumpkin macaroni and cheese, Caesar salad and warm chocolate chip cookies with chocolate peanut butter cup ice cream. It was the perfect night of comfort food.

Getting ready to go on vacation - so using up stiff in the fridge ( big chef salad for lunch ! )

Tonight - DH bought a pre marinated pork tenderloin ( pretty small )  which should be grilled - but grill is in the shed. So I am going to brown it and cook it with a can of cream of soup to make gravy.  Boys are having baked drumsticks

I am roasting all the nots of leftover veggies and making some rice.

I went to a cajun/creole restaurant with a friend and had crawfish/shrimp etouffee.  Very tasty!  I forsee a repeat for lunch tomorrow :)

I am now in charge of preparing turkey for Thanksgiving dinner.  I'm also going to make cranberry sauce, because I already bought the cranberries.

Italian sausage, tomato and cannelini bean soup with Parmesan and Italian 5-grain bread. Was delicious.

Chocolate chip pecan cookies for dessert.
