Got back from Alaska after a wonderful time and I'm ready to cook again. I missed all of you!
I have a couple of big portabella mushrooms, and I think I'll plop a couple of big meat loaf style meatballs on top of each one and bake them with a spicy tomato sauce on top. I'll take a picture if they turn out purdy...

So, Kayelle, got pix? I always wanted to go to Alaska. I'd love a virtual tour. Hint, hint.

Missed you too!

You all sound so ambitious!! I tossed various leftovers into a stir-fry, served over ramen noodles. Told my husband no more seafood/fish for awhile. In the past week I think we've had various forms of fish and seafood every day. I know it is good for me, but enough is enough. Today I stir-fried the leftover poke and shrimp from a gazpacho a friend brought over Sunday. Told husband all, and I do mean ALL leftovers go into the trash. Have no idea what I'll pick up tomorrow, but it will not include anything that swims and probably not any sausage in any form. While our heat wave has calmed somewhat, nothing long-cooking either. Kind of narrows it down a bit, but I'm sure I'll find something!

We're still recovering from our week-long flurry of grandchildren. Whew!!! Gettin' old ain't for sissies. But...we had a ball and I think the children did, too.

Tonight we had eggplant Parmesan, corn-on-the cob, sliced tomatoes, and iced tea. Everything, except the cheese on the eggplant and the tea came from our garden. It was sooooo good.

We were too stuffed for dessert and too tired. Takes longer to bounce back than it used to.

Found some thick cut (1 inch thick) pork chops that actually have a bit of marbling so I'm going to grill those and some veggies (eggplant, portabella caps and zuchini). Think I'll keep the seasonings simple tonight. Salt, pepper, maybe a little cayanne on the veggies. Maybe a little garlic on the eggplant.

We have a ton of pictures Z !! OMG.......what a BEAUTIFUL state!! We took a cruise up there a couple of years ago and loved it, but we didn't get to see the interior so this was the icing on the cake! Steve is busy with the trip story and pictures and as soon as he's done, it will be on the website. It will likely be a couple of days. Thanks for the interest GF.

I changed my mind on the sausage, vegies and pasta. I made chicken-broccoli fettucine instead. The sausage will be for tomorrow night.
