Finished the last of the split pea with ham soup tonight. Sliced into the second loaf of homemade French bread. Washed it down with iced tea and finished with the last of the zucchini bread.

Pretty easy meal, especially since I was on the road nearly all day today.

Had a quick bacon, egg and cheese biscuit before conjuring up a vat of Carolina Slaw for work tomorrow. Now savoring a slice of BakeChef's Peter Pumkin Bar...it's almost gone.

And I have celery that needs used up... I have romaine, too, so maybe a salad using just the two with blue cheese dressing.
Do you make your own Garlic Parmesan?

Tonight we had Pub Style Chicken & Scalloped Potatoes.

Although we used a new recipe for the scalloped potatoes and DH didn't like them I haven't ever cooked ANYTHING that he didn't care for. Oh well you live & learn. Guess I'll have to make up for the bad recipe next time.

Another one-pot meal. Except I had two going with making stock for tomorrow's chicken soup. Oh, then the third pot for potatoes. They're all still waiting for their bath - any volunteers? Buehler? *sigh*

We had Beer-Braised Pot Roast. It included bacon, onion, shallot, plum tomatoes, and both beer and beef broth. Cooked the sauce up thick and loaded it all over mashed 'taters. Oh Yum!

Before and After pics (there were leftovers ):

Thanks, Dawg.

Yes I do, Jessica.

mmm, pot roast... Do you put the DO in the oven after you get everything going or cook the whole thing stovetop?

Interesting bacon, too. Where I shop (I always have to put a disclaimer now for the snipers) where I shop I don't recall ever seeing bacon advertised as either sweet or smoky. Our bacon (where I shop) is always smoked, so that's kind of redundant. And it seems folks are more interested in "low sodium" than "sweet". I've made sweet bacon before though.
know the feelin' mate!!i use loads of the roasted garlic sauce...always hits the spot & only 1.50/$2.25 a pop from tesco.bargain!!bacon also from tesco,does what it says on the pack...drycured sweet & smokey...bacon....mmmmmmm!!

In much of the country, the WC restaurant is held in very high esteem, and has been featured heavily in the Harold and Kumar films.
Oh, and a couple pieces of Halloween candy, just to make sure it's fresh.
cheers dawg!"harold & kumar do guantanamo bay"what a film!!
