Bone-in leg of lamb, mashed potatoes and gravy (my Swedish grandmother always put some coffee in the gravy, a Swedish thing?) roasted asparagus, mix of corn and mushroons, homemade rolls, usually we have a lemon mousse pie but this year I going with Key Lime pie.
We had corned beef, simmered in beef broth, 2 bottles of beer, onions, bay leaves, pepper corns.
Brussels sprouts in stead of cabbage. They hold their shape better.
I add more vodka when the level goes down about an inch or so, and add new beans every year or so.
I've not seen anyone mention "mystery meat". My kids brown bagged it on those days.
@Gutreactions Think fried clams..
Steamed, with drawn butter, maybe with some steamers, corn on the cob.
Lobster rolls aren't too bad either and neither is fried lobster.
No! Not strange and it's heavenly. I think it must be a New England thing for I've never seen it anywhere else.
I think it's meant as a compliment, but then again it depends on how good a cookie cook the grandma is/was.
I always make it in the morning for dinner that night so I don't see why you couldn't make it the day before. I make my lasagna the day before.
I'm with onepercent99 .. but maybe a bit of lemon zest, juice? No herbs & spices!
pineapple bread pudding
I'm doing lamb and ham, mashed potatoes and gravy (my Swedish grandmother always added a bit of strong coffee to lamb gravy), asparagus. corn, assorted rolls, lemon mousse pie and a coconut cake (not shaped like a lamb).
Just put it in a zip lock sandwich bag. But I'm with blizheetah, I'd eat it and buy another : )
Christmas we have a birthday cake for dessert.
New Years Eve Chinese take out
St Patrick's Day corned beef, soda bread
Easter leg of lamb, asparagus, something lemon for dessert
Thanksgiving turkey, stuffing, turnip, green bean casserole, pumpkin pie
The sides change year to year but these are the basics.
Purple jelly beans!
@oneprecent99 & finsbigfan That's why I only eat front yard dandylions.
or could you just borrow a cake pan from a friend for the day?
It's not quite a cooking fear, more an after cooking fear. I'm really scared to use my 'self cleaning oven function'. I wait to do it when I have family around so I won't be alone when it might blows up the house.
I've got 2 cake pans, bake the third layer after the first two are done. It works fine. Been doing it for years.
a McDonalds cheeseburger happy meal.
Something like Texas Toast?
Clam Chowder with oyster crackers. Any other soup goes with a sandwich. Tomato soup/grilled cheese. Chicken noodle/pb&j. etc.
conky that is so great!! I'm doing that this year! Thanks!
