Today, it is simple: butter-melted, roasted garlic-added, salt, pepper, add cream and stir. While stirring, add sautee'd mushrooms, onions, spinach, leftover chicken; serve over noodles.

Simple, neh? I think the problems I've had before have stemmed from doing too much, or too high heat and feel successful already, knowing a little more than yesterday, even.
Marshall, I use this one, or a very close variation of it, quite often and it always comes out great.

I haven't had fried wings in eons and tonight I think I will make some, Buffalo style.

Yum, Pac! I've made this with the low fat neufchatel and skim milk, along with other stuff, and you're right, it's great.

Marshall, I think your sauce sounds really good!

Roasting some cauliflower, and will send some to Andy, as I know how much he loves it. Leftover pork roast.

True. Knowing there is beer in the fridge does bring me comfort...

Leftover spaghetti. For some reason, it's always better the second day.

Tonight's dinner is a pan fried boneless strip steak ( not real large) so I best watch it close and not over cook it. Nuked bake potato and some ranch type sour cream dip. Don't know what I was thinking. I bought TWO big bags of sugar snap peas at Costco before New Years. Sturdy little fellas. I could blanch and put a garlic butter sauce, or pan roast with garlic. I think I will just eat them raw with some more ranch dip. It's a glorious day and I made a pitcher of Ice tea. It's ok if it keeps me awake this evening. Going to start reading the Girl with a Dragaon Tattoo after dinnner while the movie is fresh on my brain.

Marshall, Welcome to the DC club !

I made a "just got home from work, don't feel like cooking anything big, kid friendly dinner." leftover chicken, diced pepperoni, diced onion, green and red bell pepper, a little garlic and italian seasoning, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, topped with betty crocker garlic drop biscuits. Guess who wouldn't try it.... the kid he is eating canned ravioli.

and I am new here as well, been dropping a post here and there :)

If the "kid" is old enough to turn up his nose then he is old enough to get dinner on the table and cleanup once in a while! It may mean canned ravioli for two but, ya gotta start somewhere!

He is 7, and the most he does is attempt at helping me bake cookies. By attempt I mean, he says "Mom can we make these cookies?" I start and he leaves to play :/

Hrmm, well his birthday is in May, wonder what he will do when he opens his gift :D I really do want him to learn (and enjoy) cooking. I left home in my early 20's not knowing how to brown hamburger! I learned to cook from my ex fiance. He was in chef school and cooked for me 7 years... I watched and learned and now love it.
