Happy New Year’s Eve! Please stay safe and have fun ringing in the New Year! Here at StoneGable we are having a cozy party of family and a fun game night. Oh, I have so much fun playing games with my competitive family! My sister will be cooking New Year’s dinner at StoneGable. Lisa is a chef and has owned her own catering business. Every meal at her home is restaurant quality. So since my left leg is in a cast she is helping out! Thanks, Lisa! Now, let’s see what’s on the menu this week…
Last day to enter!
SUNDAY -NEW YEAR’S DAY
Happy New Year! If you live in my part of the country you will probably be eating pork and sauerkraut. We sure do! I make a pork roast in the oven and sauerkraut with pork ribs in the slow cooker. YUM!
- Crown Roast Of Pork with Stuffing
- Mashed Potatoes
- Homemade Applesauce
- Pineapple Stuffing
Are you making any New Year’s resolutions this year? I’d love you to share them in the comments. Do you keep them? Most of us don’t.
The Muffin Tin Onion Gruyere Stacks are amazing! A must try!
- Proscuitto Wrapped Tilapia With Mango Salsa
- Muffin Tin Onion Gruyere Potato Stacks
- Wilted Spinach with Cider Vinegar
I am such a fan of a slow cooker! I literally wore mine out after years and years! I am an All-Clad fan! I just got the new All-Clad 7 quart slow cooker. It is by far the best. Yes, it is an investment but it cooks food beautifully and you can even brown food in it. I highly recommend it! You can see it HERE.
- Slow Cooker Chili
- Buttermilk Cornbread
- Fixins’ (Corn tortillas, tomatoes, cheddar cheese, onions, black olives and sour cream)
Circle January 17th on your calendar. I have a big, big surprise you for! That’s all I can say now… but I’m over-the-moon!
Do watch Food Network? I am addicted! This Chicken Pie is a homey comfort food casserole from Trisha Yearwood. I can’t wait to try it!
- Chicken Pie
- Potato Cakes (made from leftover mashed potatoes)
- Mixed Vegetables
I love to make a roasted whole chicken! And I use every little bit. The meat makes a great dinner and leftover meat makes yummy chicken salad for lunches. I save the wings and the carcass for Nani’s Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup or broth. A homemade chicken is so much better than those wimpy, over cooked, over priced rotisserie chickens at the grocery store. An exception… the chickens at Costco are amazing for the price!!!
- Ina Garten’s Perfect Roast Chicken With A StoneGable Twist
- Roasted Yams and Potatoes with Root Vegetables
FRIDAY- SOUP DAY!
We are serious soup eaters. I love what I call peasant food. Soups were a way of using the leftovers and helped stretch the food supply, using every little bit. I think soup tastes better than just about anything!
Substitute the ears of corn in the Roasted Corn Chowder with 6 cups of frozen kernels. If you have a soup recipe you love I would love you to share it!
If you have a favorite soup recipe I would love you to share it!
If you try one thing this week it should be beer bread! You can also substitute lemon/lime soda for the beer. But the beer gives this easy bread a hearty! If and I say “if” you have any leftover, toast it for breakfast. So yummy!
Okay, I’m ordering take-out tonight! Probably Chinese. I love Crab Rangoon!
