Probably on the menu for January.....

-----Cheesy Zucchini and Sausage Casserole. Not a combo I would normally think of.
-----Creamy Red Potato Salad. This will be made minus the celery seed and parsley. I will follow the advice of letting the flavors meld overnight. If they are in good condition at the grocery store, we may substitute chives for the parsley.
-----Alpine Chicken
-----Mexican Stroganoff
-----Berry Crisp
-----Lemon Bundt Cake. We will make the glaze that goes with it and include grated lemon peel in that glaze.
-----Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bars
-----Oatmeal Cranberry Walnut Chocolate Chunk (Whew!) Cookies
-----Yesterday was National Spaghetti Day. We missed this. I will look for some interesting spaghetti recipes. :-)
-----We will start exploring these tips for storing potatoes.
-----I will continue to finish re-reading M.F.K. Fisher's "The Art of Eating" and see if there are any recipes that I want to try.

Hobo Stew was supposed to be a menu selection for later this month...but we made it last night instead. The frozen corn was left out (I am not always a fan of corn in anything chili-like). We used a huge sweet onion and our diced tomatoes had sweet onions in them. There was not enough ingredients for this to easily we added more  tomato sauce and bit of Grandmother-In-Law's very mild homemade salsa. This ended up tasting a lot like a good Sloppy Joe's and we may make it  again straining out the liquid for that purpose. I think it would make an excellent Sloppy Joe's and Husband is neutral on the idea. When it was done cooking we tossed in a bunch of whole, pitted ripe olives (the kind that are uniformly black because they are painted with ferrous gluconate). At some point in the future, I will try a bowl with the extra Worcestershire suggested.

This is Day 5 of the Blog Dare. I will be blogging every day this year. :-)
I am happy that I fully anticipate reaching this goal. Sometimes, I do well on this type of activity and sometimes I miss a few days.
