It's just my husband and me tonight. Our 3 boys have plans. One went bowling, one went to movies, and one is at MSG at the Nick's game. We're having popcorn shrimp over a salad of greens.

I found leftover meatloaf and mac & cheese so I heated those up. DH is still in Michigan. He'll be home tomorrow. I miss him

It was leftovers. I had a huge lunch of chicken marsala and a salad and didn't feel like cooking. DH had some leftover casserole, DS had the chili and I had some cheese slices.

We had a favorite easy peasy dish we love...Filet de porc facile aux herbes de Provence la Kayelle

The Souschef scored some beautiful first of the season asparagus at $1.99 lb !!!
Oh happy day, they were trimmed and olive oil roasted on a sheet pan next to the tenderloin.
Toasted tater tots for him and grape tomatoes for both of us made us happy.
The mandatory dinner wine is always the kiss to dinner.

I did pasta. Found some crab in the freezer so reduxed some 5% cream, added a bit of dijon and capers and garlic and the crab. Put the crab "Juice" and a clove garlic in the pasta water. I didn't have any parm, so I dressed it with nutritional yeast and fresh parsley. Four ounces of that was enough for me. I know what i'm having for lunch tomorrow.

Ha! I had to ask of what a curmudgeon is! There are no ones here!

Tonight we had a wonderful dinner! Joyce make her chicen soup all handmade with the French bread with the cheese and garlic butter upon it and a small garden salad of the sides.

I have never seen this type of soup made before, so she taught me of this. She had the handmade chicken soup broth already made but frozen. She thawed this, put it in her soup pot, and put a whole before-prepared rotisserie chicken in it!

She let it cook under, and lifted the chicken out and dismembered the meat from the bones of it on a platter. She cut it all up and put all of the meat and the skins of it back into her pot. She seasoned this with oregano, sage, thyme, rosemary and paprika and let it cook on just the little bubbles she said was simmer.

She added to the end of it the cut up carrots, potatoes and peas from their garden last year and said it was fixed when they were not frozen but still a bit firm. She said she hates of soggy vegetables of soups and stews.

I brought my journal to the kitchen, but she pushed it aside and said, "No, you might want to take this to Catina II." She went to her computer room and gave me of a different journal and told me to write the recipe upon this.

It was so very good! So, I shall have of a cooking journal now! And I shall be asking of all of you for new recipes again!

For dessert, she had this new gelation ice cream and the very nice fresh pineapple.

I feel as of home!
