I made Cheryl's Black Bean and Corn Salad
for the first time this season..love that salad and I used fresh corn off the cob for the mix. I didn't have any ripe avocado but added sliced black olives. Texas toast was on the side for the "star" of the show..pan fried bacon wrapped Filet Mignon. Happy campers here..

I made a country omelette with chopped cheese and garlic chives. We had whole grain wheat toast to go with it. Boy, was the omelette ever good. It's been too long since I made it.

This Plan Didn't Exactly Pan Out

Didn't like the way the meat came off the pig feet and discovered mites on the mint.
So ended up with spaghetti with garlic butter, ricotta, parmesan, crushed pecans, and lemon. Wasn't bad for a spur of the moment improv.

We're cleaning up some leftovers: chicken-barley stew, one chicken quesadilla, one breaded pork chop, and various veggies. Hmm, there's so much there that if I make salads, I might be able to stretch those leftovers for two days.
Well, he didn't invent rubber, but he invented the vulcanizing process that made rubber practical for things like tires. But, close enough.

I had some leftover chicken fried steak, so I made a sandwich out of it.

I knew that, but I was afraid that saying "Vulcanized" would conjure up images of Mr. Spock.

Goodyear started playing around with rubber because it was gooey in hot weather and brittle in cold, making practical applications like boots and weatherproof coats impossible. He wanted to figure out how to make rubber stable. From what I found around the interwebs, Goodyear obtained several patents relating to rubber, the first being on 6-17-1837. He got the patent for vulcanized rubber on June 15, 1844. Quite an invention; right up there with Willis Carrier and his A/C.

I only knew the story because I'm a car nut. It's one of those many things I have rattling around my noggin that does nothing to make me any money.

I caramelized onions and made sandwiches on ciabatta rolls from Sunday's tri tip, topped with melted cheese..
Finished the fruit tart (also from Sundays dinner)
