CWS, that's a shame about the stove. Hope the easiest way to get up to speed is the way that works.

GG, hope you feel better tomorrow.


We had fried fish, homemade potato wedges (got a super deal on russets) and the Chief's recipe of coleslaw. Very good, but I could do without the onion. Maybe next time I'll take some out for me and add onions to Himself's share.

Yum! Mine looked just like that, Cheryl, minus the avocado, queso fresco, and the fact that I let DH pile his up before I made mine. So I got 1/8th teaspoon of meat filling and one bean. Otherwise, our tostadas could be twins!

I have some chicken, mozzarella and artichoke sausage ready to saute. I'll add some tortellini sauced in marinara, some fresh basil, blobs of fresh mozzarella ( to create puddles of melted cheese) and call it "Pasta Surprise." It's a surprise I made dinner on such a hot night. Salad. Surprise.

Not bitter, just hungry! Hide some extra for you next time.

Thanks, CG. I'm just not up to swapping out a stove/range right now. I have cukes that need to be processed, etc. Conrad's bones are in the toaster oven. Hope that works. Thankfully, I have two of them. I didn't have enough freezer room to hold these bones. But I so want stock to make (1) Norwegian Sailor Stew, and (2) braised beef with brandy, orange, and lemon.
