Tired from shopping, I made a TBS on Rye. Tomato, Bacon, Swiss.

If I get hungry later, I'll have some of the chicken soup I made yesterday.

My fridge, cabinets, and freezer are bursting at the seams! I need to have a cooking day, but I've got to figure out what I can take out of the freezer that won't be bigger when the leftovers go back in! At least the loaf of honey wheat bread can come out now 'cause there's only the heel left of the rye.

I could always just dig right into those plates of yours Ms !!

Dinner was thrown together tonight and turned out so tasty!!
I had a lb of ground beef that needed cooking so I made big meatballs with it using chopped mushrooms, fine diced onion, some panko bread crumbs, chopped parsley, lots of parm cheese, a few shots of soy sauce, egg, & salt and pepper. I flattened them out some and browned on both sides, and removed to keep warm. Deglazed the pan with some Sherry, and added a can of Cream of mushroom soup (yes, I do use it sometimes). I added some milk till it looked right and returned the meat patties to the gravy, covered and simmered a few minutes. Served the patties and gravy on top of steamed rice, and steamed broccoli finished the meal. Dang, it was really good.

It does sound good. I like sherry as a nice change. I wouldn't apologize for using canned soup. I keep a supply of mushroom, chicken and celery and use them often. They are great for extending a gravy, or as a base to melt cheese in for mac & cheese. Sometimes just for a gravy with some flour mixed in with some Gravy Master to change the flavor and add nice brown color. Mushroom for savory, chicken and celery to add a background to cheeses or binder (?) for a casserole where I want something bland to showcase the other flavors.

Thanks for bringing up the sherry, though. I'll keep it in mind as I plan dinners to make room in my overstuffed freezer. Maybe a hamburger casserole with sherry, cream of soup, cheeses and egg noodles with frozen broccoli cooked along with the noodles.

See you're inspiring me already. XOX Z.

It was my DH, Stirling's birthday today. We went to The Old Dublin Pub with a friend. Stirling had a cheeseburger with bacon. I had a burger with mushrooms (and peeled off the orange cheese they didn't list on the menu, if it had said cheese I would have said "no orange cheese"). Both came with big fries. The burgers were huge and I actually got mine medium rare. We also had Alexander Keith's India Pale Ale on draught. All very yummy.

Brown a pound of ground beef with onions, garlic and mushrooms. Stir in a can of diced potatoes, some frozen veggies and a can of cream of mushroom soup.

That's my version of glop. I learned it as a Boy Scout and it's a nostalgia meal for me.

SO won't touch it.
