So what is for dinner tonight?

What will you be dining upon while watching the election returns? i am trying to decide between a roast chicken, sausage-cornbread dressing and haricots verts or a rich creamy spinach pizza. Not working today so I have time for either. Decisions!

  1. I had to come into the office (got in late as my polling place was busy) so I am planning on ordering a pizza and making a salad. And drinking 2 bottles of wine!

    I vote for pizza!

    1. Needing some comfort food tonite - stewed tomatoes with peppers and onion over rice. Fried pork chops on the side. Easy!

      1. I smoked a brisket using cherry and pecan just for the event. Which will be interrupted for two hours to watch the Defending National Champion Kansas Jayhawks start their season! Whoo Hoo!

        1. I am also having pizza. I bought a dough from Trader Joe's, so I'm good to go. My favorite pizza is simple: pepperoni and mushrooms. That's what's for dinner tonight, yum!

            We will be having independently-farmed salmon burgers with some wildly liberal wild rice w/dried cherries and pine nuts, tempered by a fairly conservative green salad. We run the gamut in this house!

              I'm doing the same thing!!! I bought TJ's pizza dough and will be topping it with mushrooms, turkey sausage, tomato and probably spinach.

            2. Leftover Vietnamese from last night's dinner party - Banh Mi with chicken liver pate from Nguyen's book, fried rice from Pham's book (yes, I finally bought ketchup, so will make this tonight), cucumber salad, sauteed bok choy in oyster sauce .....

                Can't wait to hear if you think it makes the necessary difference (the ketchup, that is).

                Put us in the pizza crowd. I don't want to have to worry about cooking, cleaning up this evening so my husband is picking up a couple of 'zas on the way home. Then the tv will be on to watch the returns.
