In the kitchen with my cookies

- In the kitchen
Actually? I wanted to see terms and conditions before I signed onto 2021!!I'm thawing out some of the grits casserole for tonight, along with a bottle of Blackberry Merlot to toast the New Year. Possibly the entire bottle. I want this new year to feel VERY welcome, and inclined to treat us well.
The Big Sandwich. I took a couple pictures, then realized that Dear Richard didn't add tomatoes. I was working on the wings, while he was making the sandwich. I don't know why I've always made the bread in a round pan; I have a square pan. I've just always done it that way. This loaf was not baked. Rick was very impatient!
Here's a serving, again without the tomatoes. I added them before we ate.
Our wings from the air crisper in the NFG.
I put foil on the main pan of the NFG, then put the AC pan in to Preheat. Added the wings. When the wings were done, I removed the foil and only had to wipe the main pan out. The AC pan went into the dishwasher. Before we went out to the shed, I put the brie in the main pan. 400F for about 20 minutes. The problem was that I didn't have any puff pastry, so I had to use Phyllo dough. The dough layers were way too thick....next time I'll have to remember the pastry! But it was still pretty tasty and we enjoyed it. Even after cooling for about 15 minutes, once I cut into it, the cheese flowed out. It was good, even with the phyllo and no pretty decorations on top, and with the darker crust. We enjoyed it with crackers.
Today's dinner will be pork and sauerkraut over mashed potatoes. And that's it. Really. I'm not making dessert as Rick is still working on that cheesecake. And we have cookies. If anything, I'll take an apple pie out of the freezer. But, to be honest, I'm about sugared-out.
