Pampered Chef: What's for Dinner...Thursday, December 31

  1. Good Morning!!!!!:sing: Happy New Years Eve!!!!! This year seemed to fly by for me!!!

    Tonite we are having leftovers...I want to clean out the frig and and start the new year fresh.....

    Last night I made the Loaded Baked Potatoe Chowder...yummmy....:thumbup: The only problem I had with it was a little thin...until I read back over some previous threads that stated to use whole milk....we only use 1%...drained some out and it was good to go. I added broccoli.:thumbup: It was very filling and comforting! Next time I may add corn, bacon,peas,etc.....

    Happy New Year Everyone......may you find 2010 filled with joy,warmth,healthiness, prosperity and everything you wish for!!!!!!:love:

    We got falling confetti early - 4 inches of snow:grumpy: So as my husband was leaving for an half day of work, I suggested we stay home for dinner. I think we will have Pork Fried Chinese Rice.

    We went to The Squeakquel movie, and then out to a late lunch @ Red Lobster.

    For dinner, we are staying home. Having snackies, and Sparkling Cider....along with movies and popcorn.

    "Firehouse Chicken" in the DCB. Onion soup mix, Catalina salad dressing, and a can of whole berry Cranberry sauce. Mixed together and added 4 chicken breasts. It marinated overnight. Now I'm trying it in the microwave. Usually I would put this in the crockpot or a 9x13 dish in the oven, but now I'm trying it w/ the DCB. Making some rice to go with it, too.

    We are staying in tonight & having appetizers. We ate a late lunch at Fridays about 2:00. We're having mozerella sticks, jalepeno poppers, catfish, mushrooms, pizza rolls and something else. All JUNK! :D DH & I have some wine for midnight to celebrate not only the new year but also our wedding anniversary. :)

    What kind did you have. We didn't care for our Sparkling Cider from Meijer, I think it was St. Julian's. We liked the grape stuff.

    I made crab dip and crab salad from PC recipes. Just okay. Too much garlic, I think. My friends brought rolled up steak strips with bacon wrapped around them. I can't believe we ate it all. Of course, there were lots of cookies and peanut butter balls.

    YUM! Everyone's menus sound great! Since I made homemade egg rolls for 40 last night for NYE party, we are having Chinese take out and a movie. We are hoping to rent UP. Can't wait.
