I will be teaming up with my daughter tonight and making shrimp and crab étouffée. I am starting a business and have put in a lot of hours this week and know it's time to relax. Cooking is a way for me to wind down and it's a bonus to spend quality time with grown baby girl😀

Best wishes on your new business Shuga, and yes, cooking with daughter night is lots of fun!

I had a meatloaf sandwich for dinner, with a couple of dill pickle spears and a sliced Pink Lady apple on the side. Delish.

We were out shopping for a new recliner love seat today..so confusing, so we went for a nice late lunch at the Olive Garden. We need a head exam for doing either on a Sat. We'll raid the fridge later.

Ha ha! Yes, Kay - you're both retired - take advantage of that!

My mini cheese balls were pretty popular tonight. I also made chocolate bark as a hostess gift.

Caslon...I had forgotten all about that Shake n Bake commercial until now!

Nice plate of cheeseballs, GG.


It's a bit more seasonal weather today - 37 degrees and damp at dinner-making time. Just right for soup! I made a pot of Chickpea and Romaine Soup with Golden Vermicelli, something that is becoming a favorite of ours when we want to warm up. With paprika, cayenne, and turmeric, it's impossible to stay cold to the bone. BTW, the soup isn't greasy and the photo wasn't blurry. What is causing the fuzzy image is the hot steam coming up from the soup. I told you it was hot!
