Pan-fried walleye (caught it yesterday at Lake of the Woods), fresh corn-on-the-cob, tossed salad. I'll take pics of the fish--since I've got a pic of the fish on the stringer <g>. I'm having a hard time deciding when to head back to Ontario--really enjoying the walleye. And, I have chokecherries ready to make jelly. The things I miss about MN.

Decided on a sort of Spanish rice/paella. Lots of fresh tomatoes, some spicy stock I made from something over the winter and need the freezer space for tomato sauce I'm making every weekend for the next month or so.

I didn't know what to make. I think it's because of laziness, and it's been so muggy in the apartment that I don't want to bother with the oven. So, I decided on chicken noodle soup, done in the crock-pot. Mark hasn't been feeling good, mainly because of allergies. He always enjoys semi(homemade) soup.

I have to turn the oven on at some point tonight, because I have bananas to use up. They won't make it another day, I'm afraid. It should be cooler later on.

I found some pork ribs in the freezer yesterday and took them out to defrost... so.. I got creative.

This morning I took out the small crock-pot and added some cubed red potatoes and baby carrots and sliced onion on the bottom. Next I seasoned the ribs with salt and pepper, put them on top of the veg and then topped them with onion slices and 3 cloves of thin-sliced garlic. Added 1/4 cup of water and cooked on low for 10 hours.

Sorry no pictures...it went too fast.

I do a parallel recipe, with one more change.
I season the ribs (usually country style) and sear them on all sides on the grill, then layer them like you said in a pressure cooker with some chicken broth. Twenty minutes later... ooh, la-la...

I think I just ate my dinner. I saw that bologna in the fridge that I smoked yesterday, so cut a hunk off and cubed it, then I cut up some Swiss cheese squares, grabbed some triscuits and some spicy brown mustard and now I think I'm good for the night.
