I am planning on making rotisserie chicken tomorrow. Does anybody know any good, simple marinades? I marinaded it last time and it was wonderful--especially when I made stock out of the carcass. This time, I want to do something different. Rotisseries is my DH's fave.

I think tomorrow we are going to eat backward.
We are invited to brunch with friends. The husband is Polish/Russian and the wife is Chinese. Her parents live with them and they have 2 adorable kids.
At 11 AM we will be served a full table of Chinese homemade foods, including DS's favorite: dumplings. He is practically drooling already at the thought of it!

So, probably for dinner tomorrow, we'll have breakfast! If they don't want that, there are a few pieces of leftover pizza in the fridge.

I have enough leftover food for 3 parties. I froze most of it: 3 containers with enough meatballs for us all to have sandwiches, 1 container of sauce with meatballs, 1 container of just sauce, 2 smaller containers of stuffing and 5 meals worth of cooked turkey.

When I cut up the vegetables for the platter I took all the odd ends of peppers and celery and chopped them small. I can use them in soup, chili, things like that. Those also will go in the freezer this week. And I have more "sticks" of celery and peppers still to deal with. I can see a stir fry in my future this week! Maybe RobertaD's Cashew Chicken. I also think I will do a big pot of vegetable soup IF I have enough containers left over to freeze it when done.

Hi Everyone,

Congratulations Catlover on your Chef Guy and your sucessful eye surgery!!!

Barbszy those cakes were WONDERFUL!!!! You did a really awesome job!

Val it's so nice to see you back! I always look foward to seeing what interesting recipes you post!

Dinner last night was bbq ribs, oven fries and coleslaw. Tonight both boys had soccer games so in between them we went to pizza hut with some friends. Really bad idea and won't be making that mistake again. Ds#1 and 3 of the other kids got so sick to there stomaches between eating greasy pizza and running. Poor things were eating tums like they were candy. Thankfully they are all feeling better now.

Not sure what is for dinner tomorrow. Ds has his first meeting for his trip to Australia and we will be gone most of the afternoon. I have some chicken soup left so maybe we'll just have that and some sandwiches.

I hope that everyone that was not feeling well is doing better!!!

Mom to 2 precious soccer bums!

Thank you for sharing his birthday cake. Will keep it in my file to send to friends for their childrens birthday ideas.

I have not been around in a long time.
I finally graduated grad school, got a new job, am currently working part time but will be going full time any week now as soon as the paper work goes through....I am busy enough most days.
I started having my Christmas get togethers on 12-4 and had the last one today...whew, I am done it is over. Over Christmas and new years were quiet, we went to a Japenese restaurant for both. My 23 yo son still lives at home and went with me.

The menu today was just appetizers.
Little smokies wrapped in pieces of crescent rolls with honey mustard for dipping, large shrimp in shells with homemade seafood sauce and my SIL's artichoke dip. I also made a chocolate chip/sour cream pound cake for my brother's BD....we won't say how many...lets say more than half a century.

I got lots of GC's this season so Monday if my asthma is feeling better I am off to try to spend them.
A roadtrip to a neighboring state that charges no sales tax. yeah!
I will meet my GF 1/2 way there and we will have lunch.
Hope you all are doing as well as can be expected and God has Blessed you all.

catlady101, can you tell me what grad school is like? And, can you tell me what your major is? Feel free to PM me since this is NON food related. I am within a year or a yr and a half of getting into grad school and am scared. I have a lot of teachers who are willling to give me letters of recomemdation and I know that is one of the criteria. I would appreiate your help.

I am still wanting help on marinating that chicken! I am so glad that you finished grad school; an am jealous! ha ha BTW, I am a junior.

marinating chicken

I use Italian salad dressing for chicken. Let it sit awhile in the dressing then cook as normal.

My 21 yo dd said she would make chili for dinner tonight. We have leftover ground beef from last night's taco soup. In fact we have leftover taco soup, so will be taking that to work tomorrow or maybe have it for dinner Monday night. No extra money, so will be eating lots of whatever is in the house this week.
