Wasn't sure what to make when I came here. Some of the dinners sound good. I was thinking breakfast foods but now I'm leaning toward pigs in blankets with chili and cheese.

I like the way you're leaning. Sounds good.

I've been anxious to make mac & cheese with all the good cheeses I've got right now, but other things keep getting in the way.

I started the chicken soup morphing into lima bean soup this morning, to warm the place up and keep it smelling good. I put 1 cup of baby limas in the soup, along with a teaspoon of Liquid Smoke and let it simmer. Meanwhile while looking in the freezer I saw the smoked pork neck bones I bought yesterday so I added 2 pieces of that.

When the soup started getting low on liquid, I added 2 cups of water plus a Ramen spice packet to keep the salt right, added another cup of water to compensate for evaporation and too saltiness. I took the smoked neck bones out, let them cool and got the meat off and back into the soup.

It tastes WOW. Another good one that will be hard to duplicate, just using what's on hand.

I'll bet it tastes as good as it looks.

Thanks for the idea of the gravy mix. The one I use sometimes is a generic brand, but is very tasty. I'll have to try it your way, over egg noodles or cheddar mashed potatoes like yours.
