What's For Dinner: Back to the Kitchen

I must admit that since Thanksgiving, I've not been cooking so much as re-heating. We had a ton of left-overs from the holiday weekend, not just turkey et al but salmon and fajitas and too many sweeties. The last few weeks of menus have been more about defrosting what we already had and emptying out the panty by the expedient of tossing together this and that. "Oh! Looky! I forgot about that cod. Thaw that, throw in a can of this..." You get the idea.

Now the freezer and larder have a smidge more room in them and it's time to plan a proper menu again. Not to mention that some blog buddies have recently posted recipes that I simply must try.

I noticed you don't have "Big Night" in your foodie movie faves over on the side bar. Have you seen it? It's a good'ern.

I have seen it. Love me some Stanley Tucci. But I guess it needs a re-see...
