I made some turkey burgers that I fried up in some bacon grease left over from last night's dinner. Heated up some Bush's beans and had some chips and dip.

I ask the philosophical question, "What lengths will some people (me) go to in order to avoid driving to the supermarket?"

I decided to have Shrimp Alfredo over pasta (cooked shrimp from frozen, bottled Alfredo sauce, package pasta) but you need BREAD for this dinner. ... But I didn't have bread and didn't want to drive... What to do? What to do?

Easy. I had all the ingredients for Rosemary Onion Focaccia, so I just made a 2/3 recipe (easy to do if you don't bother to measure ingredients anyway) and it's baking right now!

So that's for dinner: Shrimp Alfredo over pasta, Rosemary Onion Focaccia, and probably throw some veggies in the sauce before I serve it.

Chances are I will survive starvation until at least tomorrow morning!

I found a recipe for baked chicken that guarantees it to be as crispy as fried, but so far all that's happening is the bottom of the chicken is burning, the sides still aren't crisped up, and the breading is falling off the top.

This is an early dinner for me, so I may be making pan-roasted marble potatoes in bacon later on (so I can have what I don't eat tonight for breakfast tomorrow).

Tonight's ribs-and-stuff. Lots of "stuff", including us. In our case, make that "stuffed"! *burp*

I was right - my chicken was edible, but nothing to write home about. So I think about midnight I'll be making pancakes for my real dinner.

Tonight I made what has become one of my favorite summer meals - grilled bratwurst with kicked-up sauerkraut, and potato salad with mustard and herb aioli-style dressing.

I mixed the sauerkraut with beer, grainy mustard, thyme sprigs and caraway seeds and simmered the brats in it on the grill. Then I grilled the brats to brown them. Yummy

GG are you of German background too? Bockwurst from the German deli is always ready in our freezer. A variation of your dinner is always a favorite in my kitchen too, no matter if it's done on the grill or on the stove. Looks wonderful btw.

Oh yes! My maiden name is Hoffman and my great-grandparents were Vogels In fact, German was my first language - my dad was in the Army stationed in Germany when I was a baby and our German landlady was my babysitter.

Thank you. When I was plating it, I wished I had made a cucumber salad, too
