I had hoped to do a pork roast, but I think I overdid it yesterday since my knees and aches from my Thursday fall really spoke to me when I got up this morning. Sheesh! All I really did yesterday was to make a carrot cake. Crap and a half!

At any rate, we have lots of the yummy cream of mushroom soup I made yesterday, and I had planned to make broccoli-rice pilaf (which I will) and some butter braised turnips. Will cook the turnips, too. Glenn discovered them yesterday as he was disking the garden. They were borne of the turnip greens we've been eating. Found a good recipe in Mastering the Art of French Cooking when I did the mushroom soup.

There's some round steak still in the refrigerator, so I'll probably do something with that so there'll be some "beast." Of course, carrot cake for dessert.

We wandered into the International Foods store that just opened a couple of months ago. They had only three shelf units when they first opened. Any way, we bought a lot of odds and ends, some of which I have heard of on this site. I am busy sampling bits and bites.

BBQ, pulled pork from a few weeks ago, that we froze. Re heated in the oven. Tom's BBQ sauce, hot for me, mild for Karen. Some wonderful vinegar based slaw and some home fries!

I told James that I would fix him regular food for supper but that "I'm having garbage." He chose to have garbage with me. He is having tortilla chips with mild cheese sauce. I'm having tortilla chips with salsa con queso and added jalapeños.
