In my Flank Steak Teryaki post I pointed out that it has been a long, long, long time since I prepared a complete meal from the DiS! set. How long? It was summer.
That’s a long-ass time.
I have been away from the cards so long that I didn’t even know that there are only 11 left. Yes, you heard me right: ELEVEN. That’s one-a-month if I start in February.
Now I realize: I can do this. I can totally do this. I can finish the cards this year!
But all I need to do is start. I look to you, gentle readers, to give me a kick in the ass and get this show on the road.
I have chosen 4 DiS! cards, all with different proteins, but all suitable for the season (I wasn’t about to start doing some outdoor grilling in this cold).
What’ll it be?
27. Swedish Meatballs
- Assorted Herring Appetizers
- Swedish Meat Balls
- Pickled Beets
- Cucumber Pickles
- Jannsson’s Temptation (card #91)
- Apple Squares with Vanilla Sauce
53. Stuffed Breast of Veal (or Lamb)
- Stuffed Breast of Veal
- Sage Potatoes
- Tomato, Cauliflower, and Olive Salad with French Dressing
- Babas Au Rhum
60. Orange Duck
- Orange Duck
- Wild Rice
- Green Beans Almondine
- Dinner Rolls
- Whipped Jello Parfaits
111. Broiled Fillet of Sole

- Broiled Fillet of Sole With Coral Shrimp Sauce
- Broiled Mushroom Caps
- Rosti Potatoes
- Cheese Pinwheels
- Grape and Orange Ambrosia
- Coffee or Tea
Voting opens today and will go til Monday. So if you are just bonkers for meatballs, love Jell-O, or have strong feelings for cheese pinwheels, you got a lot of time to stuff the ballot box.
Speaking of strong feelings–over the weekend (and by the weekend I mean Friday night and Saturday morning/afternoon) I binge-watched The Affair–and I have a lot–A LOT–of feelings about Joshua Jackson a.k.a. Pacey Witter.
So. Many. Feelings. I could watch that clip all day long.
