Dinner-time Blues Tue Dec 29, 2015

I got the blues so bad
One time I woke up with my face in a permanent frown
But I'm feelin' so much better
I could cake-walk into town.
-- old Taj Mahal song

Ha ! I have beef stew just out of the oven and a pan of corn bread just started baking. Dinner in 20 more minutes. 'Tis a good thing I don't actually have to sing for my supper. What's on your plate today?

I cooked some hamburgers then drowned them in a pan of beef broth to simmer for awhile. I'll thicken the broth for gravy. Sides are going to be mashed potatoes and hominy.


Btw whisk I like that song.

What was suposed to happen is this: SO was going out with some girlfriends and I as going to have some chicken wings I found in the freezer.

Why DID happen is we've had snow, freezing rain, etc. all day today so SO's dinner got canceled. Sadly not enough wings for two. As a result I'm cobbling together a hamburg and veggie dish for our joint delectation.

DH asked what he could do to help with dinner. I had a late lunch and he had none, so I suggested making big salads topped with sliced leftover prime rib from Christmas. He said okay, we went to the kitchen, and he said I was in the way, that he would take care of it. Well, okay then!

Ordinarily, he doesn't like chopping things for salad, but who am I to object? Nope, sitting here in the living room with a glass of wine. If he needs my help, he knows where I am

Went for Japanese food and a movie with my Lunch Bunch friends today. Both the food and the movie were good, and the company even better.

For dinner tonight, I'll do some oven chicken wings, SC will have some rice and we'll both have salad.

Fabulous looking pizza, Joey!
