I made a large pot of chili today...heavy on some local ground chuck, light on the beans, and, that must have been some hot chili powder in that unmarked jar...think I will hold off adding the can of diced tomatoes with habaneros.

Hmmm, I wonder if I have any clams in the pantry
Well you could always rustle up a Clam Chowder and I can learn from your mistakes!

I haven't had home made clam chowder since I was a kid at deer camp. A guy who lived in Boston made it for the rest of us with fresh clams. I won't mention again what he strained them through (some may remember).

But I found some Lake Erie perch! I was kind of hoping to save the perch for Cleveland's by week and have it for my PPPC, but tonight it is. Maybe I'll make up a little plain mac and cheese to accompany it.

Tights! (pantyhose?)

Plain mac and cheese? What would a "non plain" one be? What do you normally add to it?

Something along those lines...

I don't think I've ever made a mac and cheese that hasn't had added stuff in it; sausage, broccoli, onion...
I'm going to do my best to make this one with four ingredients. Butter, milk, pasta and cheese... and maybe red pepper flakes. Or maybe some diced mushrooms. And if there's mushrooms there might as well be onions...

Ah yes. Very much like my Cauliflower Cheese then!

Just be done with it and call it your special cheesy bake!

Baking properly requires a good oven. Which is my predicament with the toaster oven thing.
I'm a stovetop guy.

We had meatloaf and corn pudding. Very tasty tonight.

You don't have an oven?

I guess this is because you cook outside so much?
