Pot roast. Chuck roasts on sale cheap, and I haven't made a plain pot roast in a long time. Of course, with the left overs I will have stew....

pot roast here too, found two in the freezer, what a surprise, made with sweet potatoes, canned yukon golds, celery, garlic, only things in the pot roast not raised here are the onions, s&p and paprika. with whole wheat dinner rolls, still have some chocolate cake left

I don't get real creative with my two toddlers. They are very picky so I tend to go with what I know they will eat lol.

Frozen pizza for all 3 of us (Daddy is working). Home made Crab rangoon later in the evening. The oldest, who is 3, might try it. We'll see.

Loose meat sandwiches (RR's recipe) on Kaiser rolls..... not to be confused with crusty bread rolls and some thick cut fries loaded with steak seasoning and ranch dressing.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

Gonna make my great Auntie Nell's pasties for dinner tonight. The recipe makes 4 large pasties so there'll be two I can freeze for another time. Yeah! Not sure what else we'll have. Except, there's still lots of peach cobbler left from our Valentine's Day dinner. Looks as though we'll be eating that forever. It's really good, 'specially with vanilla ice cream.

Thanks for starting Barb............JP4U
Hi and happy Saturday to you all.
DH has to work today, it's cold, and I must study all day, alone and in the quiet. That's fine with me, but I want something in the background [to smell all day long] to remind me of the love of my life and how hard he works to provide for us. It's been a hellacious couple of years on my doll workwise. Smelling something wafting through our home will remind me that soon, I'll be sitting on his lap and he'll be massaging my massive bulk of mane [his way of settling us both down, it's a calmative]. So.....for dinner it's gonna be in the making right now...and thanks for the idea Mama Gracie, I see you're new, welcome, would you mind updating a profile so we'll know a bit about you and the kids, thanks, and again thanks for giving me an idea for our appetizer.

pacanis, does the crust on the kaiser rolls crack (not from lack of freshness but from the structural integrity of the crust), or is is softer and squishy?

if it cracks, it's known as a hard roll. another variation of crusty breads.
