It's been such a hectic week and I've barely been on here. I miss reading what everyone else is cooking!

Tonight is the first lovely autumn night I've seen since we got back from Florida. It's definitely a hot tub night!

We're having pumpkin ravioli with a vanilla sage sauce.

Then center cut pork chops with a bourbon maple glaze, baked butternut squash, and sauteed zucchini tossed with chestnuts, dried cranberries, garlic and bread crumbs.

I went to B&W bakery for a seven-layer cake.

This menu cries for bourbon on the rocks...Evan Williams. Merlot with dinner and port for the chocolate cake.

I've missed you all!!!

How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

Wow, Vera! What a meal!

I'm having leftover Texas More, a variation of slumgullion. I made an enourmous batch for the deer hunters, and kept out a small casserole for myself.
Kim asked me to spice it up a little for "The Guys", so I added some hot Italian sausage to the ground chuck, and added a sweated chopped onion. It sure spiced up the old kid friendly dish.
"The Guys" loved it.

We get by with a little help from our friends

It was breakfast for dinner here. At about 6pm, I had honey bunches of oats. Deciding I wanted something more substantial, I'm now eating... more breakfast. Hashbrowns and an omlet with mushrooms, spinach, ham and goat cheese. Rather tasty.

I had venison stew

We're waiting for our tummies to empty enough to
refill with vanilla ice cream!
Love the life you live!

Today, I went to Reno, NV to go grocery shopping for Thanksgiving dinner. After picking out the food, carting it home and putting it all away, I was not in the mood to cook dinner. Knowing this is how it would be I picked up Chinese take out on the way home: kung pao chicken, orange chicken, chow mein, and spring rolls.
