there's no mincing words with you, eh kylie...


huh, huh? lol.

with the chicken, try my meatballs "made in trees" recipe from the chief's meatball thread.

you'll be suripsed at how good minced chicken or turkey tastes when made into italian meatballs. the key is to use good grated cheese like romano.

to kick it up, i like to enclose a small cube of mozarella cheese in the meatballs to melt while they cook.

i'm not sure yet about our monday dinner yet. there's a pork loin to make, and a corned beef.

i have a fence guy coming over for the final documentation and permits/survey (so we don't have to look at the drunken macedonians next door, nor the unfriendly turks on the other side. i'm fortifying buckstantinople...), and dw wants to go to the gym early due to baseball practice at 6, so dinner will be whatever i sling from the kitchen.

i'm thinking some midwest inspired breaded pork loin sandwiches, with pickles and maybe veggie slaw.

I'm going to make Snip's Mushroom Soup:

Odette's Cream of Mushroom Soup

I have all the ingredients with a couple of substitutions, mushrooms will be baby portabellas, green onions instead of leeks, and I'll make my own chicken broth.

Thanks Snip for a tasty looking recipe!

We had a weekend of great weather and did a lot of work outside.
We are having a picnic style supper- potato and a macaroni salad along ham, deviled eggs. dark chocolate brownies.

Hope you enjoy your anniversary celebration Hoot. Congrats!

Me, I'm going to another pot luck tonight! Had one last night too! Not sure what I'll take just yet. Yesterday I made deviled eggs. It's cool and rainy today so I may do a hot dish of some sort. I could make corn pudding or green bean casserole.
