It's a damp, chilly day today. Just right for German Potato & Sausage Soup and some toasted baguette slices.

I still have ham left so I need to do something with that. I'm thinking of chopping some up and trying the No-boil mac and cheese recipe Chief posted earlier with chunks of ham added in.

Lol... delegation would have to be done very diplomatically. While I sit inside the warm house right now sipping my tea, she is outside clearing snow off the driveway - and not looking very happy about it. If not handled with kid gloves, I could end up delegating myself right to the doghouse.

I understand completely.

I guess you do as Paul Prudhomme does and sit at a table for prep or in front of the stove to cook.

Tonight we had tomato soup and toasted cheese sandwiches. For dessert this afternoon I made some carmel bars from a box of cake mix and instead of putting in the chocolate chips I put in butterschotch chips. Grandson loved them (he had three).:-)

my boy and i went out for lunch today for some buffalo wings at cubby's in hackensack, nj ( who needs a house out in hackensack? is that all you get for your money)

well, apparently not. as we were finishing our overpriced wings ($1.10/wing), a cockroach ran across our table. i swatted it away and it ran under a nearby garbage can. cockroaches coming out in the middle of the day? not good. so on our way out, i asked for the manager and told him about it. he looked shocked, and ridiculously looked under our table as if trying to find more. he never apologized even after i said we'd never be back, nor did he offer a refund. i wouldn't have gone back anyway at their prices. $25 for a rack of ribs, $3 for a 12 oz. soda in nothing more fancy that an average forces? gimme a break. but the cockroach was the kicker. if they come out in the light like that, the place has a real problem.

i'm going on yelp now to give them a suitable review.

the day got better afterwards, though, as we spent the afternoon at nearby batting cages. i was really proud of the little guy for hitting 45mph balls with good consistency. not bad for a kid not even 9 yet.

then we went home to happily find dw making turkey meatliaf, mashed potatoes, and corn.

no cockroaches.
