I thought it might be fun to start a thread on what we are having, making or had for dinner.  Sometimes it is the best tuna steak you ever had, sometimes it's a can of soup.  But we all do it every night in some form or another.  Maybe we can give each other ideas on what to make, or bitch about what we had, or the fact that we did enjoy that grilled cheese with tomato soup. 

Every night my husband comes home and says "whats for dinner?"  no matter what I say he always says "sounds good!"  even if I say it's a 'fend for yourself night'. :)

Lacey, this is a wonderful appetizer that you can make well ahead and freeze and bake at the last minute. I always have some made up in my freezer.

Michelle, I thought of reducing the vinegar. Actually, I made a modified version using buttermilk and lemon juice. DH loved it, but he loves German food so would be the least likely to object to anything. Susan, the pork recipe looks like an excellent option. I'll check to make sure no one else is bringing pork and if not, that may be the ticket. Thanks guys!

auntienance - We have big potlucks in my quilting class several times a year. 

The instructor always brings sausages that her husband barbecues, then cuts into bite-size pieces. There's usually a variety of different kinds, but because they are German, there's always German sausage.

That's one of the first dishes to be cleaned out - they're so yummy! Tongue Out

Anyway, if you have access to a BBQ, that's just a different way of doing sausage. You can even BBQ them one day, then the next day just cover the pan with foil and heat them in the oven for the party.

That meal from the Italian Sweet Basil sounds scrumptious.  Also Susan's sausage and white beans.

Auntie, do you have a Fresh Market in your area?  Ours always has lamb shanks.  Your husband's family sound pretty adventurous in their holiday meal planning.

Two delicious party foods that can be made in advance are shrimp mold and crab mold served with crackers or toasted garlicky baguette slices, which are available in our supermarkets.  I always make a shrimp mold for Christmas and it's supposed to be made no earlier than the day before.  I have also made artichoke balls that freeze well.  You put them on a pan and heat them at the time of the party.  I have recipes for all of the above.

I've been following this thread, copying recipes, bookmarking, etc.  It's a great source not only for dinner but for other info - i.e. Michelle's post about Moisturel. 

Michelle, I have always had problem skin and I'm wondering which product you use.  I just checked the company website and see several listed.  

If you see this, would you mind posting the one that's worked for you?  I see that most of the products have very good reviews on Amazon. 

Thanking you in advance!

Michelle- Glad your feeling better today. And ick on the insects on the menu I for one will stop going out to eat.

Nancy- Since someone else is bringing a sausage and saurkraut dish, how about a Germain chocolate cake or a German onion pie, it is pretty good. I will copy/paste it after this. Also for my saurkraut I use caraway seeds and some brown sugar to cut the sourness out.

4 thick slices of bacon, diced 2 cups peeled and chopped yellow onion 2 eggs, beaten 1 cup sour cream 1 tblsp flour 1/2 tsp salt 1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper 1 9-inch pie shell, unbaked Preheat oven to 400 degrees f Saute bacon. Drain most of the fat from the pan. Add the onions and saute until clear. Do not brown. Set aside to cool. Beat the eggs and sour cream together in a medium-sized bowl. Sprinkle the flour over the top and beat it in. Stir in the salt and pepper. Prick the bottom of the pie shell several times with a fork. Spread the onions and bacon over the bottom of the pie shell. Pour the sour cream mixture over the top. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees f and bake for another 15 minutes or until pie is nicely browned. Serve hot!

It's been about 3 weeks since I've been able to do more than just scan the posts, so I guess I'll have to jump back in, more or less from the start, again.

Michelle, I'm gladd you're feeling better.  I usually get a cold whenver I fly...maybel I'll get lucky and not get one this time.    How would "Moisture" work for hands?  My hands are still a wreck from all the handwashing/hand wipes/alcohol "cream".  Before falling asleep, everyone on the team would slather their hands with hand cream, put on a pair of exam gloves and wake up to only "horribly dry" hands.

As for the insects, some don't taste bad if you don't know they are on the menu.  :-)  I still don't know if I'd pay money for them.

Lacey, both my mom and her mom had the cataracts removed. It brought so many positive changes to their lives. As a boy, I can remember my grandmother was *SO* excited about seeing the birds in other than brown tones.

My project of having my mom help translate the German recipes from her dad's folks got side tracked by my deployment. I do want to get that going again.  If I was farther along, I might have been able to offer up some fresh (150 year old) ideas.

When I cook down the turkey bones, I "cook" the stock down so I don't have so many 1/2 pint jars to freeze.

Eric, perhaps you could try Aquaphor cream for those dry hands. It has certainly worked for many radiation patients, and I use my leftovers for any dry feet or hand problems and it works really well.

Tonight we ended up having the most delicious salmon filets baked with pesto (thank you Sweet Basil!) on a bed of lentils with shallots and red pepper flakes,
brussels sprouts,(cut from the stalk I picked up at Trader's), and a garden salad. Really satisfying......

$8,000 for a dress...

Wow.

That's how much money my parents lent my ex-husband and me to help with the down payment on our first house back in 1982 or 1983.  

One of my favorite Italian restaurants was in NYC and we tried to find it when we were there last year but it had closed years before.  It was very tiny and the owners/waiters, etc. spoke in Italian to one another.  My husband is Italian (and from New York state) so we're always looking for good Italian restaurants when we go back to visit - although very few restaurants compare to my mother-in-law's cooking.  Her mother was born in Italy and she grew up learning her style of cooking and then later, she took some courses at the Culinary Institute (they live in Poughskeepsie).  She makes a soup that's absolutely delicious.  She taught me how to make it last year but I've yet to try it on my own.  

It is so good.  It's called passatelli, which my husband says means "little worm" in Italian but I don't know if that's really true.  I think she learned to make it from her mother-in-law, who grew up in the Calabria region.  

She also taught me how to make the family eggplant parmesan which I've made quite a bit over the years.  

Last night I bought two freezer-safe glass containers to freeze the pasta sauce I made last week.  I typically freeze the leftovers in plastic containers but I'm trying to be very careful about the BPA factor so for the first time, I'm trying glass.  It goes against my every grain to put glass in the freezer but on the other hand, I often put glass candle containers in the freezer in order to freeze the wax enough to easily remove it and I think I've only ever broken one of those glass jars.  

Anyway, I'm hoping these freezer-safe glass containers will work.  If they do, I plan on using them for eggplant parmesan as well (actually, our eggplant parmesan recipe doesn't include parmesan - it calls for romano).  I like the idea of freezing it ahead and then by the time it thaws completely, sticking the same container in the oven.  I typically use aluminum pans (throwaway) for the eggplant parmesan (romano!) but now I'm nervous about aluminum as well - lol!  I'm thinking all this "oh no, everything's gonna give me more cancer" thing will eventually pass (somewhat).

I get a cold every single time I fly.

Having a bit of bad news here. DH was just diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I've had diabetes for the past 12 years and although I hate that he's dealing with this, in some ways it might be a good thing. Loving to cook as I do, I don't always make the best food choices for myself. Typically it seems, I'm more concerned for him than I am for myself and as a result we're counting carbs diligently. So this is a good reason to get back on the straight and narrow instead of frolicking with pie and that extra serving of pasta that I love so much (even if it is Dreamfields). Maybe I'll even drop that 10 pounds I picked up in the last 3 months during my baking frenzy.

Having said all that, I have no idea what tonights dinner is.

I'm sorry to hear that, auntienance.  My husband was on the edge of being diabetic in the summer of 2011.  

I was so concerned about it (my father had type 2 diabetes) that I suggested we go on the 17-Day Diet which eventually turned into the 17 month diet or more accurately, an overall change in our eating habits.  

I intitiated it because several people in his family had experienced great results with this particular "diet" (I'm not really much for diets per se but this one is the first one that's ever really changed my overall eating habits).  I needed to lose some weight as well and so, like you, I decided we needed to buy the book and bite the bullet.  

Well, he ended up losing SIXTY POUNDS!  

I've lost about 25 pounds.  

The last time he went in for his bloodwork the doctor was amazed at the difference in all of his numbers.  Unfortunately, his high blood pressure issues remain but they aren't quite as pronounced as they used to be (less edema, better numbers, etc.).  

On the downside, I ended up with cancer(!); but I certainly don't blame the "diet"/eating changes - actually, my second-opinion breast surgeon said just the other day that the 25 pound weight loss might have ended up saving my life (I lost a lot of weight in my breasts and my tumor really stood out like the sore thumb that it was). 

Good luck with the changes!  

Editing to add:  We've just recently started eating pasta/pasta sauce again on rare occasions.  One reason being that I'm worried that we're not getting enough lycopene...plus, he's Italian and now that we've come this far, I don't think a "treat" (as in pasta or eggplant parmesan) is that bad - as long as we don't go completely overboard.

auntienance - so sorry to hear about your DHs diabetes dx. My DH was dx'd with severe kidney disease in 2011, and that changed his eating habits completely. He had to be on a very restricted diet (no red meat,and this was a guy who could put away a 32 oz ribeye!) and he had to chart and log in not only his food, but all his vital signs every day.

It changed the way I cooked, and the way I looked at food. I had to be very diligent about exactly how much of any ingredient I put in something - a challenge, considering how many casseroles I used to make.

But when I went on my Optifast program last March, it was SO easy, now that our kitchen was revamped with much healthier foods and the tools we needed to keep track of our intake.

The good news is, Type II diabetes can be reversed with good nutrition and exercise.

I've been diabetic for 11 years and have been in good control until recently.  I think the steroids have done their damage.  Time will tell if it's permanent, my fasting numbers have been about 30 points higher than my normal range.

I don't know what the reason is, but I have Christmas spirit this year.  I've put up a tree and some decorations.   I bought beautiful poinsettias.  I've been buying little Santa gifts for everyone who is coming for the Christmas family dinner at our house.  I've even bought and addressed Christmas cards!  What happened to the Scrooge of the last three years?  This is definitely more fun.

Lee, freeze it in glass pan, store it in the aluminium, and just put it back in glass to cook. That way you don't have to keep all your dishes in freezer.
Luvmygoats, I have to do that. Yet, put it off. Just couldn't face more docs.
Carrie, glad you had fun. Welcome back.
Nancy, hope your DH gets it under control. My BG soared on steroids, over 400, and is not dropping fast emough for me. I lost twenty pounds during chemo, and it didn't help. My a1c is pretty good, at 6.5, but my fasting number are 130 or even higher. They were about 110 before. I just saw my PCP last week, he wants another a1c in a couple of weeks. After my potassium levels out and my magnesium too. Why is it always so hard. Um, I suppose pumpkin pie isn't exactly great for me, but it sure was good! LOL. However, when I go to Starbucks, I treat myself to, ready for.it, a Trenta, that's extra large, um, unsweetened black tea! LOL I love those! I like unsweetened green tea too. I wasn't a very good southerner when I lived in Virginia! LOL no sweet tea for me. Yuck! LOL.

Sometimes life SUCKS! Sometimes it doesn't. I prefer when it doesn't! If you're ever bored, read my biography. Bring snacks..... LOL Monica

I've had two colonoscopies and the prep was definitely the unpleasant part of the procedure.  Several women on another thread had their procedures without sedation.

The lamb chops were delicious last night.  DH grilled them perfectly.  It's definitely grilling weather here, and I'm not too happy about it.  Our cool winter weather is gone and our high temps are in the 70's and up to 80 for the next seven days. 

I guess we're in for 8 months of reports on Kate's pregnancy! 

Dinner tonight will be roasted turnips and carrots and a meat, undecided.  Maybe chicken.

Moon, even though I love all things southern, sweet tea is not one of them. I have to remember to order "unsweet" when I'm in the south (which is often).

Tonights dinner is senate bean soup using the leftover hambone. I think I'll make some cornbread sticks so DH and I can each have one and the rest will go into the freezer for the next batch of dressing.
