Whats for Supper...

Recommended Posts

I like Domino's, too. We'll get that once in a while. I call it in and hubs picks it up. I love their thin crust pepperoni with green peppers, black olives, and onions.  Of course, adding those toppings is expensive, so we rarely do it.

I baked two of the pizzas for tomorrow tonight (and had to sample to make sure it was ok...that was my dinner :51_scream: ). Tomorrow after church we'll put the others in the oven to bake and folks can nosh on what's already done while they wait. Papa Murphy's has a new one - bacon cheeseburger. I'm looking forward to trying that one.

What is Russian potato salad?

 

It looked like a cake with carrot garnish. :1_grinning:  Seriously, it was shaped like a two-layer round cake, and "iced" with mayonnaise, garnished with carrot slices. It consisted of potatoes, turnips, and a few more veggies. 

Tonight we had creamed chicken on toast.

Sounds interesting.

My eldest daughter hired a field for a camping weekend for her wedding, and had a bring and share meal.  One brought a potato salad with hard boiled eggs on top.  He arrived late and most of the people had eaten enough.  He was very disappointed that very little was eaten.  I had some and it was very nice.

It was a strange wedding, they cycled from Sutton to Paddington with my daughter in her wedding dress,  then caught a train to within 15 miles of the camping field and cycled from there.

Probably no one does home made pot pies any more. But every time I think of pot pies I remember my mother making them from scratch.

I don't remember the recipe, but can still remember the delicious aroma that wafted through the house when she made these.

She used a big green Fiesta bowl; the kind that are antiques any more. She made wonderful pie crust and would make a huge one for the pot pie.

There was a coffee mug placed in the bottom of the bowl to support the huge pie crust, so it didn't sink into the liquid and become soggy.

Lots of chicken cooked to perfection, along with veggies like potatoes, carrots, onion, celery. And all of the seethed in a wonderful chicken gravy. She then  cooked it in the oven until the pie crust turned a light brown color.

I sure wish I had her recipe, I miss it. Sorry to be off topic because this is not what I had for dinner last night, but HC, your post got me to thinking about home made pot pies, there is no substitute.

I would agree - no frozen pot pie comes close to homemade! We are planning a "pie social" for our December potluck at church. We'll have both savory and sweet pies (and likely pizza pie). I'm planning on making at least a chicken pot pie, possibly beef. And I'm already tasting it. :91_thumbsup:

Cous cous with vegetable stew, chicken thigh and Merguez,  I usually add a small piece of lamb, but that is too expensive these days.  I had run out of the spices I use, but a builder who does some work for our church was going to Belgium for a few days to visit his in-laws brought some back for me.

Today is Thanksgiving Day here in the US. We will have the traditional meal: turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes/gravy, green beans and corn, cranberry, rolls. And for dessert pumpkin, apple, and rhubarb pies (not to mention the cookies in the cookie jar).

Lots of food, with lots of leftovers for munching over the next few days. And lots of thanks and praise to our God above for all He has given and all the He is. 

May all who read this (who are in the US) have a wonderful, thankful Thanksgiving.

Enjoy your celebration.

We know a US missionary pastor in France who tries to introduce thanksgiving  to those who attend his church.

 

I receive recipes each day from a French company called Marmiton.
Today's email was Menu de thanks giving.
It included Dinde farcie accompagnée de marrons. (Turkey stuffed with chestnuts. On their website, if you get the google English translation it says 'Browns" as marron is brown as well as chestnut.)

Also, Fête traditionnelle aux USA, Thanksgiving est une fête familiale célébrée le 4ème jeudi de novembre. Mashed Potatoes Comme chez Mamie (like mummy makes)

Anyway, enjoy your thanksgiving meal.

Thank you, we did. And it was good to spend time with family. Our son is still in Indiana, but he was able to video call us this evening and we were able to chat a bit.  Can't wait til May when he's supposed to be moving up here. Yay!

Thanks for the recipe! I'm not sure I'd like chestnuts stuffed in the turkey - I'm not crazy about stuffing from the turkey. Although I would taste it, because I do like chestnuts.

We had a veggie day today. For lunch I did Aubergine Parmigiana. With roast Chanternay carrots and green beans.  Helen our chief (usually only) cook for our seniors lunch and it is their Christmas lunch on Tuesday and she has tried a veggie dish for those who are.  There are only two at present, my wife is the only veggie but two others prefer our veggie meals to meat, but one has not been for a while.  there is another who doesn't like pork, and has veggie when we have that .  She brought something for us to try, which h she couldn't think of the name.  It had  chestnuts and spinach and other things in puff pastry.  She brought one for me and asked my opinion as she thought it was a bit tasteless,  We had it for supper and we thought it was quite nice,  My wife said she thought it needed more seasoning and I said I would have added some Marigold Swiss Bouillon  and a bit of oregano or thyme.

That sounds tasty.

Yesterday we had our pie social at church - with roast beef pot pie, pizza pie, and Romanian Shepherd's Pie. For dessert there was lemon meringue pie, cherry pie, and almond joy pie (as well as brownies).

Tonight we had hamburgers and fries.

It was our seniors  Christmas lunch today.  We usually have a suggested minimum donation of £2.50 which just about covers the cost of the food. Today it was free as one of our members, Edith died and at her funeral her family asked if any donations were made, they would like them to go towards the lunches.

We start with a short gospel message.

We had home made parsnip soup, Roast turkey, roast potatoes, carrots,, green beans, Brussels sprouts, piggies in blankets, with cranberry sauce, with a choice of Christmas Pudding, strawberry gateau, fruit trifle, and a couple of us had fruit salad and cream,  Then they sang carols, and ended with tea or coffee and hot mince pies. Including helpers, there were just over 50 of us.

There was also a veggie option, I am not sure what was in it, but it was very nice It was some sort of vegetable mixture in a puff pastry roll, with a leek sauce.  Helen, our cook, did one at the end of last week and brought it for my wife and I to try, and for any suggestions. We suggested more seasoning and herbs like oregano.  I usually help doing the veggie bit, but had a fall Sunday evening and wasn't felling too good.

We invite any speakers and their wives who have given the message during the year to join us, We had three and two wives and one daughter,
