    C - sorry to hear about DH, especially around the holidays. I can't believe it is already the second week of Dec. Where has time gone. I'm really trying to use what I have on hand; with 1 new dish each week. Also, trying to build up my freezer stash of meatballs, some prepared meats and chicken, etc.
    Christmas decor done, tree up, every thing mailed and cards out. Two Xmas parties, nothing too special or fancy and the dates have already changed twice icon_confused.gif Otherwise, I would love if it was a bit cooler. 80 is NOT December, very warm this year. HO HO HO. Happy shopping!

    Wow! I have never heard of gozlemes, so I googled it. Sounds fantastic!


    G'day and big thanks

    is like a pastry with NO SUGAR simple, economical and you can fill them but not overfill them with any combination

    Sorry to hear about DH too

    Perhaps he can get something temporary even if it's not what the type of work he normally does do icon_smile.gif

    Hope a number of company will be putting on extra staff, stocking shelves etc around the holiday season....Thinking positive thoughts WHOO HOO!

    For others who might not know what they are

    Hi

    I agree, the gozlemes look wonderful, Mickey. Can you share the recipe for the dough? Something versatile like that would be good to make lots of. I've learned something new, thanks to you!

    I had a few changes last week mainly because of extra leftovers ... no complaints here though! It just means I can store up menu items for future weeks.

    Sat – leftovers

    Sun – friends’ house; her daughter + family recently moved to town so it should be a fun bunch

    Mon – polenta with turkey sausage and greens, similar to Polenta With Sausage and Greens

    Tue – salmon with carrots and snowpeas with simple soy/ginger/sesame sauce over brown rice

    Wed – Quinoa Beef Picadillo except I will omit the quinoa and have it with leftover rice

    Thu – holiday potluck with camera club; having done satay on the grill for this last year, and having a 3-month-old this year, I've decided to go easy on myself and just buy something to bring; not sure what yet

    Fri – layered cornbread roughly based on Paula Deen's Layered Mexican Cornbread (heavily modified), with black beans, green onion and green chilies, black olives; I will use the topping from Turkey Tamale Casserole because it is yummy and dairy free. I’ll serve w/cheese separate for dh so I will not ‘contaminate’ mine.

    I have done nothing about Christmas except dig up (major online sleuthing) all the old cheesy music (on long since demised LPs) we used to listen to growing up --- now as mp3s. It really brings back memories!

    I haven't been posting as much, and I really need to get back to my menu plans. Sorry to be late this week, but I figured better late than never, right?

    Tuesday:
    Green Chicken Enchiladas, haven't decided on a side dish yet. There is some rice inside the recipe I am using, so might just have some sort of salad with avocados. Possibly Healthier Refried Beans
    .

    Wednesday: either leftovers of the enchiladas OR Buffalo Steak Tips with celery & some blue cheese dip (just plain steak tips marinated in buffalo sauce, pan sauteed briefly). With mashed cauliflower on the side for me, potatoes for the family.

    Thursday: whichever we didn't have on Wednesday

    Friday: Anniversary Chicken (unusual recipe that calls for chicken to get marinated in teriyaki sauce, then also adds ranch - turned out very good last time), with mixed steamed vegetables or salad
    The recipe I use is very similar to this one Anniversary Chicken

    Saturday - undecided, but possibly pizza or Chinese or sushi out

    Also planning to bake for the holidays this week -
    Chocolate Chip Cherry Fruitcake Loaf
    Unchilled Spritz Cookie Dough
    Peanut Butter Balls (from Trisha Yearwood's cookbook)
    not sure what else yet
