Robo, the eggplant lasagna sounds yummy! We love eggplant! Is it a tomato-based lasagna, or a different sauce? I am dreaming of alfredo and fresh mozzarella....

It is cold and overcast here, and raining periodically, so I think I will make chili. Hopefully this will be the last cold spell, and I can put the chili-making on hold until fall.

last night i made my first split pea soup; 4+ hours in the crock pot.

dw was impressed, saying it's the closest anyone's ever come to her mother's pea soup. that made my night.
that, and my boy ate a big bowl as well.

i'm going to post the recipe asap, mostly so i can always come back and see what i did. i never seem to make anything the same exact way twice.

Hector will be taking up most of the kitchen bottling the barley wine he brewed... so we'll probably just pick up subs or pizza.

more corn chowder, which has had a few more things added by now, like some leftover cannellini beans and more canned potatoes. It sure turned out tasty.

bucky, I'm watching for the pea soup recipe....

I have no idea! My kitchen floor is being ripped at this very moment, so I'm not sure what I'll have access to!

ok beth, posting it now. it's really very simple, with the basics taken from several recipes, so i really can't call it my own.

I'm finally getting around to our corned beef dinner. I'm going to braise it in the oven - I have always simmered it or crocked it in the past.

Lucky leftover night, whatever I can find in the fridge. I was going to do that last night but yesterday was such a pain, I just feel like eating dinner.
