put a couple pounds of boneless skinless chicken breasts in the slow cooker with salsa and taco seasoning mix set it on low and set the timer for 5 hours. After the 5 hours, it tuns to "Keep Warm" When I got home the chicken breasts were just starting to fall apart and the cooker kept them at 165 degrees hot enough to be safe, but didn't keep cooking them, I really like this cooker.

I took some canned black beans and seasoned those and made basmati rice.

My belly is full and satisfied!

Thick loin lamb chops, steamed broccolini, onion/mushroom Orzo, and Baklava for dessert.

Well quite often I buy something reduced from a supermarket...it was going to be some sea bass fillets (that I had in mind to steam on a plate above simmering water, covered - keeps the flavour in), with bought cooked pasta, pesto and spinach salad.

However, felt like something lighter so bought some muesli rye bread (crusty, fruity and wonderful) that I had with small, juicy apples and organic banana

Beth, Your pizza looks outstanding.

I have an impatient stomach and a sweet potato baking. Wish it would hurry up and get done so I can fry up a pork chop to go with, along with some steamed green beans.

According to the recipe book I got this from it was originally a hearty farmers breakfast with the addition of squash and parmesan to bring it up to date. I suspect it was originally a left overs dish.

Meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Maybe some steamed seasoned green beans if I can muster the energy.

Picked up our quarter-beef from the butcher's today. Tonight is Porterhouse fillet side for DW, strip side with bone, seasoned with salt and pepper for me, rare of course, and a side of buttered spinach.

Is good enough. Hold that thought. Steaks are done. I'll report back...

...We have a little store and meat market that everyone in these parts swears by. And, there meat is definitely a cut above the supermarkets for quality. Once in a while, you get an exceptionally good steak there, with good beef flavor. I have just finished my steak, and it far surpasses the meat from that pretty good little market, and I've got a freezer full of them.

Best of all, I can still unbury the Webber and break out the charcoal. That steak was so well flavored, and tender, just from the grill pan on the stove top, that when it's cooked properly, over charcoal, well, I think the aroma might bring unwanted neighbors and relatives. I'll have to hold 'em off with a tower of snowballs.

I am satisfied with my purchase. It was a good thing, especially at 3.70 per pound, less than hamburger around these parts.

I had a collection of 'a little of this and a little of that'
but not enough for a meal for two
so it was a mix plate tonight of leftover:

roasted potato wedges
baked chicken with herb de provence
grilled flank steak with mushrooms (I grill the `shrooms too)
seasoned steamed kale
grilled baby zucchini
chicken cordon bleu
chicken marsala

like I said, just a smattering of a bunch of stuff

(I can't bring myself to throw out food, unless it's inedible)

I had tacos using Bibb lettuce as the shell. Really good and really refreshing.

Beth's pizza and Wyshiepoo's eggs look amazing!!!!

A little bit Ginger. A little bit Mary Ann.
