11/19/10 Friday what's cooking today

I'm morphing my chicken soup today into baby limas, just to have the lovely smell wafting around all day. Baby limas are nice in that they don't need to be soaked. They do cook up fast, however, so I'll keep the heat on simmer to drag it out.

I have leftover pork slices in gravy and mashed potatoes. I'll either have it for lunch or dinner.

I found a package of small zucchini's while shopping yesterday. I wasn't going to get more squash this time, but they seemed firm, were small just like I like them and there were about 5 in the pack plus, it was only 60 cents.

I'll cook them partway in some garlic butter with sliced onion, and freeze in a bag or 2 to get a head start when I do want squash. I kind of had to get it too because the price of zucchini and yellow squash has been almost $2 a pound here so I'm making up my losses.


If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

I have a selection of soups to choose from...may try some cottage cheese today. Crackers in soup was a bust last night.

I may actually lose some weight, but I still want that steak! Have to learn to chew first...not as easy as it sounds.

I made a venison meatza and I have a butternut squash casserole in the oven. Got caramel sauce cooking on the stove as I am experimenting to decide what I want to give as gifts this year.

When James found out I was having chicken thighs in BBQ sauce the other day he said he would like to have that soon, so I am making that tonight. We will have baked potatoes and mashed pumpkin with a little butter.

It is just Dad and I and it is quite cold and wet outside so I am not sure what to have. Baked Mac and Cheese is actually sounding really good.
