Another shopping day, so dinner was onions simmered in beer with hot brats. YUM!

I made some of the best chicken chop suey I've ever made, served it over hot rice, had iced tea to drink and finished with a slice of chocolate cake.

There's oodles of the chop suey left, so it looks like I won't have to cook tomorrow night. Sounds like a plan to me.

That's a favorite of mine too! I have to admit, I bumped up the quantities of bacon and cheese.

A few years ago, I introduced this recipe to a couple we vacation with. He loved it and insisted I give the recipe to his wife. I did.

Sadly, as much as the two guys like this recipe, the two wives dislike it. As a result, guess how often it gets made.

Obviously, you need a boys' night.

We had TNT Pork with Mushroom Herb Sauce and a salad of cauliflower, stewed tomatoes, roasted, chopped walnuts, bacon, parsley, with a garlic/Dijon vinaigrette. I got the inspiration from Blomkålssalat med bacon Opskrift fra Alletiders Kogebog blandt 30.000 opskrifter Mad opskrift at my Danish cooking site. They used fresh tomato, but Stirling doesn't like raw tomato. He wasn't crazy about the stewed tomatoes either. Oh well. I liked it.

Threw some cod filets in the pan with white wine, cream, cherry tomatoes and LOTS of herbs etc. Baked potato wedges, carrots and broccoli.
Turned out super yummy and dilly!

My husband never knew what dill tasted like until he met me, and now he is s dill addict. Crazy americans! :D

Pix at the top of the main page? I don't see any. Do you mean the page when you click "Home"?

I have made her meatloaf that has stovetop stuffing in it. I made it without so much cheese the first time, and I think without it at all the second time. It was great both times.

Tonight I cooked chuck steaks in canned tomatoes, then added to the pot some small whole onions, frozen lima beans, a can of green beans, and Montreal spicy steak seasoning. It was very good!
