    I want to make several kinds of soup (turkey, split pea) and get them into the freezer this week. I also need to use up buttermilk, can make some biscuits and freeze un-baked. I have done this before with mixed results. It is nice to be able to bake a few on demand to add to supper.

    - Korean beef & rice with steamed carrots
    - Rosemary lemon chicken thighs with buttered egg noodles and spinach
    - Ramen noodle dish (made by DS2)
    - Oven fried battered chicken with onion rings

    Second week of December:

    -- pasta w/meat sauce, caesar salad
    -- take out
    -- chicken, wild rice, slaw
    -- fish, sweet potatoes
    -- soup, popovers
    -- cashew chicken, corn soup
    -- leftovers?
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    Because we, the people, have the power to build a better future. KH

    - Lemon chicken (by Ina Garten on food network)& hatch chile fettucine
    - Breaded chicken & rice pilaf
    - Chicken noodle soup & crackers
    - Shrimp and Scallop Scampi with Bucatini pasta (by Food network)
    - Orange chicken kiev ( from Taste of home) with potatoes and asparagus

    Crock pot salsa verde chicken tortilla soup? I also make chicken chili using chicken cubes instead of ground beef.

    I got 2 free pumpkins, I love all sorts of things with pumpkin, lots of choices. Cooking most of one in the crock pot today, it did not all fit. The rest will be cooked in the next 2-3 days. We also have 4 dozen+ eggs because grocery delivery accidentally gave us someone else's 3 dozen eggs. We called customer service and were told to keep them.

    This week: grilled steak & cheese scalloped potato casserole. Pork roast & carrots. I have a recipe using ramen noodles & frozen shrimp that I want to try. Pasta with pumpkin-tomato sauce.

    I like the chile chicken recipe.... Looks good.
    I made a tortilla soup several months ago and I thought it was good but DH refused to try it. I ended up eating all of it. He gets like that.

    I was thinking of a white chicken chili but he refuses chili and claimed that I got him sick when I made beef chili about 7 years ago. The whole family ate it and he refuses to eat chili since he claimed it was the beans... Yet he'll eat canned pork & beans. Go figure.

    I haven't made Mom's paprikash in 15+ years and should do that again...Those noodles were nothing but egg yolk/flour/baking powder and scraped off the plate with a knife over boiling water. They would come out kind of dense and shaped like a wavy short noodle. But they soak the sauce and gosh.... Amazing.

    I made the lemon chicken and it was lemony but I used skinless and that may have changed it up a bit. The family didn't say anything so I'm guessing they weren't fans.....The chicken noodle soup from scratch was a score of 7/10 but I didn't have celery and I think celery instead of celery seed would make a difference. I did like the bay leaves in it, though.

    Onward to the scampi....I really hope it turns out.

    Rujerro, my DH gets like that about beans. Won't eat them in soups and various dishes, but give him chili or bbq beans and there's no leftovers.

    Speaking of leftovers, fridge/freezer clean out this week:

    -- leftover fried rice & chicken
    -- leftover ground beef sloppy joes on leftover buns
    -- leftover salad, spanakopita, crispy potatoes
    -- leftover squash soup, empanadas
    -- pigs in blankets, leftover salad
    -- take out (gyros?)
    -- fried chicken dinner
    -- leftover pulled pork, l/o beans, corn

    I'd like to make another cherry clafouti this week, too.

    Oh, german potato salad!
    How do you do that North German or South German?
    North German is with mayonnaise, South German is with broth, vinegar and oil.

    How interesting, I did not know there was a geographical difference.

    For us "german" style means vinegar, oil, and bacon dressing, served warm. Regular picnic style potato salad is cold with eggs and mayonnaise. I had never heard of south german potato salad until I married, my mother always made the north german style and called it plain "potato salad". My husband's family makes south german salad.

    Very interesting. :-)
    Before I moved to southern Germany 30 years ago, I only knew the northern German variant. Now I'll do the northern German and the southern German (Swabian) variant.
