    Hello my menu peeps!! Happy New Year!!!! Did everyone have a nice Holiday season? For me New Year's Eve/Day were much more enjoyable than Christmas. Maybe I was just in a better mood. We were just going to spend a quiet evening at home, but then my boys didn't have anywhere to go and neither did some of their friends, so they ended up at my house playing a 5 hour NHL Hockey tournament on the PS3. Quick trip to store and pizza parlor and everyone was happy. Then they all heard I was cooking up a storm for NY Day and they ended up all at my house for dinner!! I sat at the head of the table with 2 long tables end to end filled with young men!! Ages 18 through 55!!! I loved it.
    I have sooo much leftovers in the freezer, so I have a pretty loose menu for this coming week, but here it is. Share yours!!

    Saturday - Tonkatsu (Japanese Pork Cutlet), Mom's Yakisoba(Japanese fried noodles) and cabbage

    Sunday - will be catering a small banquet in 2 weeks, so making most of the meal today to fine tune it. Black Raspberry Glazed Chicken With Wild Rice Stuffing, The Easiest, Bestest Focaccia Bread Ever!! (sorta), Roasted Maple Mustard Green Beans (kinda)

    Monday - Carne Asada tacos using leftover Prime Rib, rice and beans

    Tuesday - Pork Hoisin Sandwiches using leftover pork

    Wednesday - Creamy Chicken (Or Turkey) Tetrazzini using leftover turkey

    Thursday - Bunco!!! Not sure what I'll feed the menfolk

    Friday - Have a meeting at church so probably will eat out after

    Ellie, glad to hear; they sound really good. I bet it adds lots of texture too.

    C, my g/f from OH sent me a new spicy apple rub for the pulled pork. You add beer, apple cider and the rub and put in the crock or oven. I'm trying that. It's a single pkg for the roast and she said it is heavenly. I will probably add an onion cut up as well. Should be good. I think I will add some apple jelly to a store bought BBQ sauce along with a little chipotle to spice it up.
