    I did it! I actually typed 2013!!!! Wow!!!! A great year of menu planning and recipe trying!!!
    Did everyone have a nice Christmas? Ours was relatively quiet. But pleasant.
    We've had a rough time! Sheesh! First my microwave went out. A friend gave me hers. Then my refrigerator quit. Had a repairman come out and fix it. Now a water pipe in the kitchen cracked. Had a plumber come out yesterday and repair, but have to have a claim adjuster come to check on damages. This has been all in the past month! Here's hoping 2013 is better!! icon_smile.gif But God has been good and we've weathered all the storms.
    So is anyone having a big party on New Year's Eve? I'm not but I've had a couple on invites. I'm leaning toward staying home and doing nothing, but we'll see what the DH says.
    My DH and 2 of my DS's went out of town to visit their uncle, so I haven't cooked since Christmas. Been a nice break.

    Well, here's my menu; share yours!!!

    Saturday - might go to my brother's. He asked for finger foods. I haven't decided anything yet. Otherwise, I'm not planning on cooking.

    Sunday - Chicken Pot Pie With 2 Crusts but making it beef using leftover prime rib.

    Monday - New Year's Eve - I have no clue!!

    Tuesday - New Year's Day - I usually do a big dinner, but with DH out of town without phone reception, I don't know what we'll do. Probably a ham or a turkey.

    Wednesday - No Peek Chicken with salad and rolls

    Thursday - Alfredo Sauce with chicken and salad

    Friday - leftovers from the week

    We had a wonderful Christmas and looking forward to a great 2013! New Year's is usually pretty quiet here. Thinking bowling may be fun though and saw some info on snowshoeing on New Year's Day - not sure about that but it sounds interesting.

    Friday: Speedy Fish Fillet and Spinach Avocado Salad
    Saturday: out to eat
    Sunday: WW recipe for chicken and carrots
    Monday: thinking of a recipe in the paper for black-eyed pea chili
    Tuesday: out for Chinese
    Wednesday: Ww recipe for lamb chili
    Thursday: WW recipe for shrimp and peas
    Friday: fish/salad

    I used to snowmobile every NY day at our vacation home. Snow Shoed a few times, what a work out. 2013 ... that will take a while to sink in.
    Had a nice Xmas eve with my son; Xmas day, just me and a short stop at a friends open house; but quiet and nice.

    Sorry about the problems at home C, I can relate, trust me. Had my fair share, hopefully they will get worked out.

    Been leftovers this week which is nice. This week, nothing fancy. Maybe my poker buddies for NY's eve, relaxing on the grill and poker; but NY's day at my friends farm. A BBQ. Again, casual, but fun. Be home early. No champagne ... probably shots of 'JACK.' Those good ol' country boys don't exactly serve champagne with a whole roasted pig.
    ------------------------------------------------------
    SAT ...
    A pot of Sausage, Potato, Kale Soup; my version, but similar
    ----------
    SUN ...
    Stuffed poblanos (from my garden) w/shrimp, rice, scallions, green chilies, Mexican spices; corn on the cob; salad
    Bread Day: Beer bread
    And 2 chickens Crockpot Whole Chicken, for sandwiches and freezer stash
    ----------
    NEW YEARS EVE ...
    Me: Invited to a party, but I normally don't like going out. A couple poker guys mentioned they may want to do something. Thinking grill - steak w/mushrooms, lobster, potato wedges, corn, grilled romaine
    ----------
    2013 ...
    Friends BBQ. They roast a whole pig; and lots of potluck items. Usually a whole pig, chicken, fried fish, corn, potatoes, salads; and then all the potluck goodies. I'm taking stuffed jalapenos to be grilled; and, mushrooms to be fried w/ Bloomin Onion Dip
    ----------
    WED ...
    Ladies #1 and #2: They mentioned a pot of ham and bean soup or corn chowder; homemade bread; salad
    Me: Hopefully fresh fish (going fishing); glazed carrots; hash browns
    ----------
    THURS ...
    Lady #3: TBD; her family didn't make it last week (weather)
    Me: Swiss Bacon Pie; roasted beets; garden salad
    ----------
    FRI ...
    Ladies #1 and #2: Card/Game Day, TBD
    Me and Friend: Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad; or something similar; home made rolls
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    Breakfast: trying to start an oatmeal routine
    Lunch: yogurt, cup of soup, or a light snack

    HAPPY COOKING EVERYONE!

    Wow, SC, your stuffed poblanos sound great.

    Sorry about all your kitchen woes, Charmie! When it rains, it pours!

    We had good Christmas -- first with baby (now 4 mos), so I've ben a bit less ambitious with cooking but still getting good stuff on the table. Really emphasizing leftovers!

    Sat – A Simple Chicken Satay with brown rice (leftover) and a frozen green veg (planned for last week but carried over due to leftovers!)

    Sun – Southwestern Quinoa Vegetable Casserole

    Mon – something special, maybe Wolf Creek steaks on tthe grill, creamy noodles, brussels sprouts. Wolf Creek is a local farm.

    Tue – Black-Eyed Peas With Mustard Greens and Rice

    Wed – Slow Cooker Chicken Mole with tortillas and some kind of veg

    Thu – fish salmon melts with frozen veg

    Fri – leftovers from Wed with rice or tortillas

    Happy New Year!

    MCV, I'm with you on the leftovers. I've been eating since Xmas with leftovers, and garden veggies. Personally, I love leftovers.
