As we all know, it's Christmas week. For me that means lots of family coming into town. Here's what we are planning on eating. I am going to try to post daily, but I can't promise anything. :)
Sunday (I know it's past, but it was an awesome meal so I need to tell about it!): Roasted Chicken, Collard Greens with Sauce, Mashed Potatoes, and Chocolate Bread Pudding with Caramel Pecan Sauce for dessert. I hope to post about the bread pudding sometime today....
Monday: Sallie (mother-in-law) is cooking supper---probably tortilla soup using some of the broth and leftover chicken from Sunday's roasted chicken
Tuesday: Mizutaki (mmm....a Japanese one pot, cook at the table meal which is perfect for winter vegetables)
Wednesday (Christmas Eve): Bread and cheese platter, fresh citrus and apples, hard salami, and green punch and probably popcorn for the kids
Thursday (Christmas): Orange Cinnamon Rolls and fruit salad (for breakfast before opening presents). The rest of the day we will probably have leftovers--we will be switching out guests and I suspect all will need some rest...
Friday: Roasted Brined Turkey, Sweet Potatoes and Apples, a green salad, bread stuffing, cranberry salsa, and pies (plus whatever else my family decides they need for their Christmas meal)
After Friday I hope to have my family sign up/volunteer to cook some meals over the weekend and the following week. We'll make a farmer's market trip on Saturday to stock up on veggies since there is no CSA box this week. It's a busy food time!
