Default Supper

What's everyone making for supper tonight? I didn't make anything ahead of time and can't think of anything good. Need to stop and get something on the way home to fix.

Wet and Cold in NY,

Lolene

Lolene, I'm in the same boat tonight -- didn't lay out anything for supper. I like to cook up big packages of chicken breasts and then chop them and portion them out into individual containers and freeze them. I also make big batches of veggie soup and freeze. Using chicken stock or veggie stock to make the soup and whatever veggies you have. I don't season it until I take it out of the freezer to eat. Then season it according to whatever I may want to mix in with it. When I don't get something set out for supper I can take a package of each and toss in a saucepan. Cooked dried beans or lentils are another great addition. Makes a really nice, hearty bowl of soup. You can season it up however you like it. . . . however, I still don't know what I will make for DH -- he won't eat chicken.

Meowee, thanks for the info about ordering books through this site from Amazon. Good idea!

Happy to report that our first Nor-Easter only brought lots of rain to my little segment of Nova Scotia (none of the 'white' stuff). Amazingly there are still lots of gorgeous leaves on the trees in spite of the high winds. Today -- still windy; but the sun has been shining most of the afternoon.

I'm a soup girl too -- especially at this time of year. I like to separate all my chicken or fish purchases into single serving sizes when I get them. You can just pop a serving or two into the microwave withough pre-thawing.

Have a thrilling Thursday, Chickies . . .

Rain here, and it's supposed to turn into light snow by this weekend.
DH comes back from his bowhunting trip tonight- as far as I know, we won't be eating any venison...
I've had a wonderful eating week, eating all the stuff I like and that DH doesn't. It's amazing how much you adjust what you eat to make both people happy. I don't think I've eaten a piece of meat since he left, besides the leftover chicken that was in the chicken soup. Guess I could almost be a vegetarian! I have nothing against eating meat, I just like veggies and beans more!
Hope everyone has a great weekend- stay OP!

Hi . . .

Looking at our last day of sunshine for a bit around here -- if the forecast pans out -- at least, along with dull, overcast, and rainy, we are supposed to be getting relatively mild weather for the next week.

Have a Fabulous Friday . . .

Weatherman is predicting more of the same for us -- beautiful fall weather -- sunshine and temps in the low 60s.

I know what you mean, ArtCat. My DH is a "meat and tater" guy. Of course, living in Idaho -- you have to like your spuds! When he takes off on his hunting trip, my Mom comes down to visit and we make all kinds of things that he won't eat or would rather not eat. But we do make up huge pots of soups and beans and freeze a bunch for later.

We are burning off our garden and scrap wood tomorrow. Have got a lot of friends coming over for the "bonfire" and doing a dutch oven dinner in the coals -- roast marshmallows and we are going to make homemade donuts -- obviously this was not my idea. I haven't made donuts since I was a kid at home with my Mom -- so, why not. So, I guess I will be off plan for tomorrow and get back on it Sunday (or maybe Monday). We'll have a good time, enjoy the food and company and get back with it on Monday.

Hey Liz, too bad, no venison...but, if your husband's anything like mine, just going out into the woods is good for them. Mine is out there now, bowhunting. Nothing yet this year - but, with all three guys hunting this year, we're bound to get something in the freezer. My youngest (14 y.o.) is champing at the bit to get out there with the "big guys" - he just got all of his permits yesterday.

I've been cooking with (& eating) venison for so long, I have a hard time eating beef - it's just too rich and fatty for me. My kids were raised on it, and like being able to supply meat for the family. We've supplied the 'big' family Thanksgiving dinner with a wild turkey for several years now (eldest son got the last two!) - there are never any leftovers!

Wow, judi- your husband sounds like mine. He loves to hunt or fish anything. I always have problems fixing the wild meat so it doesn't taste so wild, so if he gets something maybe you can help me out. So far I know how to can it, and we usually have the bulk of it ground up for hamburger and some salami made out of it. He usually cuts it all apart himself, to keep costs down.

No problem, Liz - p/m me when he gets one, and I'll share some of my "cooking tips" and recipes (unless there are others who might be interested?). When DH first started getting deer, I was a bit hesitant about the "game-y" flavor, and had come up with ways to minimize it, and/or disguise it. Now, it isn't so noticeable to us, and I don't need such a heavy hand with the seasonings.

Well, they just walked in - nothing for today.

Sorry I've been missing -- bit of a family emergency. Ended up being nothing devastating -- just a lot of running around. Hopefully my life will be more or less normal by tomorrow.

I got a weight loss complement at church yesterday, which made my day! Those are good to get once in a while just to keep you trying.
