I had a shopping list all made out because I thought today was Wednesday, too. The sales always flip over on Wednesday. Finally I realized I had the same things written down that I'd written down last Wednesday. *sigh* It doesn't help that I've started flipping my clock forward an hour a day as well.

So I guess I'm going shopping tomorrow then. With a new list.


I cook because my pots and pans are the closest thing to a chemistry experiment that I have. So far I haven't blown up the kitchen!

Tonight we had empanadas and chicken taco soup.

When I was doing mise en place for these two dishes, I was surprised to see the seasoning mix for the two dishes were identical in types and quantities. Identical amounts of chili powder, cumin, paprika, oregano, etc.

Grocery day, so picked up a marked-down lemon-pudding cake at the market bakery. Dessert for many times ahead.

For dinner, I smoked a big rack of piggy ribs in the stovetop smoker, then finished them slathered with Famous Dave's Devil's Spit" barbecue sauce on the grill outside. Fried a bunch of fries and we ate like southern royalty. The cake was tasty and a perfect finish.

My "dog" doesn't play a game until Thursday, so I had time to play in the kitchen today. Ribs here, too, except I did mine in the slow cooker. Not as good, but a lot easier. I made lots of sides so I can share the wealth along the rest of this week: coleslaw, potato salad, baked beans, leftover mac-and-cheese. Some fresh strawberries and a bit of vanilla ice cream later - like during the news later.

We had salmon poached in coconut milk infused with lemongrass, lime, ginger and brown sugar. I served it with rice and bok choy. It was very yummy!

We had to get the car inspected and pay taxes and registration this AM, so we ended up having breakfast for supper - roasted potatoes, maple sausage links, sliced cucumbers & tomatoes, and a pumpkin cream cheese muffin for dessert.

DH had dental work done Monday and needs soft foods for a couple weeks. So yesterday, I made Swedish meatballs over egg noodles and served them with marinated cucumbers and a tomato from the garden. To minimize the number of pans used (we're awaiting installation of the new dishwasher), I stirred French-cut green beans into the gravy
