    Husband has been out of town, so I'm doing one of his favorites for a welcome home: Stuffed peppers (huge bananna peppers from his garden stuffed with sausage, rice and tomato sauce topped with parmesan cheese), baked sweet potatoes, field peas and cornbread.

      I really like this thread - lots of ideas for sprucing up the otherwise boring day after day dinners we have to prepare. 
       
      Tonight we were fortunate that a friend that works in south MS brought us 15 lbs. of fresh Gulf Shrimp which we had to dehead and clean to put in the freezer - the kitchen looked like a processing plant - but we got it done and put some beef kabobs on the grill along with baked potatoes.  Poached some of the shrimp in Vodka, lemon slices, cracked black pepper and a little salt. 
       
      A glass of Merlot and it was all good.

            What I did differently: whole berry cranberry sauce instead of fresh cranberries, chicken with skin, double the vegetables (baby carrots instead of whole carrots), and dried thyme instead of fresh thyme sprigs.

              That autum chicken with harvest vegetables looks delicious.

                It was FABULOUS! Add in that it's very diabetic-friendly at just 16g carbohydrates per serving, and it's a definite winner.

                  Felix, the thigh is my favorite part of the chicken...I'm glad to see that the recipe calls for them instead of boneless/skinless/tasteless/lifeless breasts.
                   
                  I had the leftovers from Wednesday's sesame-soy pork steak.

                    I did dinner for lunch today, as I've discovered good sushi right downtown! Gorged myself on a bowl of miso soup and three rolls (Vegas-crab, cream cheese and avocado; yellow tail; and I forget what they called the last one, but it was spicy tuna with more spicy tuna and the spicy red sauce without mayo). I cannot even tell you how excited I am to know I can get good sushi in Michigan without having to promise my firstborn in payment. Only came to $23.00.

                      My niece is visiting from San Francisco so tonight we're going to...
                       
                      Jitlada
                      5233 West Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA
                       
                      I can't wait to report back.  Jitlada isn't your normal Thai restaurant.  They serve food from Southern Thailand that aren't on your standard Thai menu.

                          I work in such a wonderful deli now that I dont need to cook! Tonight I brought home crab cakes I make( real lump crab, not krab)with a remoulade sauce, homemade mac and cheese, and lots of vitamin c as we are sick.However, fishtaco's meal appeals to me.I love everything ham, beans and cornbread!!!

                            White bean soup (recipe from Lousianna Cooking magazine) with slaw and cornbread. This way dinner doesn't interfere with Alabama/LSU.

                              Pan fried chicken livers with tomatoes, onion, garlic & mushrooms.
                              Spaghetti squash on the side.

                                I put a 2-1/2 lb. chuck roast in the smoker at 9:30 this morning so we can have shredded beef for dinner and a few weekday lunches.

                                  Shrimp and crab au gratin with sides of steamed broccoli and green bean casserole. I'd post a link to the recipe, but I just tonight submitted it to the site and it takes 3-5 days for approval.

                                            Tonight, the old breakfast for dinner routine. Real SOS (chipped beef), fried potatoes and a couple eggs sunny side on top it all!

                                                Hot chicken on a cold night...
                                                 
                                                Chicken thighs, grilled..dry rub and at the last minute Kinders bbq sauce...
                                                 
                                                Yummy...it's 41* and dropping, so I'm bundled up, ducking back inside to warm up, pop back out to check on the chicky, then back in...my taste buds think it's worth the effort...
                                                 
                                                I really don't like cold weather, but sooner or later the snow WILL "stick" and outdoor cooking season will mostly be over, but at least this year I'm not dependant on getting an oak wood fire going, and there's a possibility this New Years Day I can fire up the grill weather permitting...(in 4 weeks we'll be running our Santa Train, then shut down until Spring...and right now I wish it was Springtime already)...

                                                  Real SOS (chipped beef), fried potatoes and a couple eggs sunny side on top it all!

                                                   
                                                  We had a modified version of SOS in our house - both my parents were WW2 Vets- my mom's version had ground beef instead of chipped beef - she called it "crumpled beef" which was broken up medium fine (like taco meat), and she used Loma Linda gravy mix -  I still make it every now and then (once or twice a year)

                                                    Finished off the shrimp and crab au gratin, since it doesn't freeze well.

                                                      Dinner tonight is mom's choice for her birthday, I hope she chooses a place where I can get a good steak!

                                                        Got cut for dinner, so no catering. So I took myself across the street to the bar for a monster bleu cheese and bacon-stuffed burger with onion rings. It's an ungodly amount of food, but it was 5pm and my next break won't be earlier than 3am.
