Sorry but that format confuses the heck out of me every time. HMMMMMMMMM both ways or written out. Wednesday, December 29, 2010 (I used to write it out with the day and date)?

Or maybe 2010 December 29. Because when I see 12-29-10 I only know it's probably December (or less likely, October) because there is no month 29

I usually use a large mug filled half way to test for seasonings. It's enough for a snack. Have something else planned for yourself so you won't be too tempted to eat the soup.

Then refrigerate overnight. Test a spoonful after you've heated it up for your fiancee's. The flavors will have changed overnight. Adjust seasonings if necessary.

Thank you. You can post the ingredients here as a preview (only because I am so curious LOL) and the full recipe in the soup forum. Just let me know where and the name.

I started a pot of mixed baby lima beans and split peas with a big fresh ham bone with lots of meat on it.

If we put the date first, it will come up first in a list of new posts, ahead of any other What's Cooking thread.

Since the day of the week is next most important: gym class, course of study, TGIF. So why not put this one second?

This is what I meant. Everyone has a different idea about what will work best, or what is easiest to find etc. Wanna be mods? LOL! This is the kind of dilemma that causes lots of cranky PMs to fly!

How about whoever starts the thread can decide what format they would like to use? That way if you want it YOUR way, you just have to make darned sure you are online early enough to start it!

Now, to amend my dinner list, I have decided that I don't feel like doing the asparagus with proscuitto. I think that might be just too much meat with the pork tenderloin. I'll just steam the asparagus and have a cheese sauce available for those who like that.

I may have to stretch the menu a bit too. It appears we will have at least one more, possibly two more bodies at the table. Its all good! The more the merrier IMO.

No, I'm not.

That's been moved to Thursday.

Today is leftover roast pork and butternut squash
