We grilled burgers and corn on the cob for dinner tonight. I used my tortilla press to form the burgers and I loved it! They fit the buns perfectly after grilling and were just the right height. Yum

I had a grilled burger, too. A huge one. With bacon and cheese.

I pulled some leftover ground beef from the freezer and it was only enough to make one big one. I didn't want to waste the grill space for only one thing, so I defrosted a couple of chicken thighs and threw them on there, too. Dinner for tomorrow.

The Pirate made me some crispy thin sliced fried potatoes. They were so good. He also made me a broiled pork chop with Ah So sauce on it. I got the potatoes down, and just a few bites of the chop. I will start picking on the chop around midnight.

We were at a birthday party this afternoon and basically all I had were some veggies and a plain bun with cheese. I got hungry in the early evening so made nachos with refried beans (for my protein), olives, tomatoes, green onions, salsa and cheese. Once baked I added avocado chunks as well. TB had some without the beans. He had meat sandwiches, veggies and cake at the party and a hot dog before we left for it.

It was the best of times. It was the worst of times.
I got my hands on some beautiful fresh cod and went to my mother's place to make her some beer battered supper. She doesn't get out much any more and really misses fish and chips. Anyhoo, it went perfectly. Probably the best I ever made and eaten. Was so happy I could treat her.

While taking out the last piece it fell back into the oil and I gave myself a b***h of a burn. I have had some doozies in my life and this one ranks right up there. .

Sorry about the burn. They really hurt.

Great thing you did for your mom.

Thanks. I'll survive. Skin grows back.....

After my mother's last stay in the hospital she is now on dialysis. She still cooks for herself but no longer does much that requires extra work in the kitchen. She gets very tired easily. I have been trying to make her things that she has grown up eating and enjoying. Been into a lot of French Canadian recipes lately. Things I never ate as a kid, but remember her making them. Made some cretons and duck rillettes last week. Put a few jars in the freezer for her. Taking her to the local orchard this week to grab a bushel of apples and helping her peel, slice and freeze them. Have some pork hocks in the freezer for next weekend. Going to make them up with baked beans and home made buns. Something she has done for many years but can't on her own any more....

With my love of cooking it is a very satisfying adventure....

That's very sweet. I do the same when I go to my mom's--I make things that my grandma used to make and things my mom made when I was growing up.
