Cute cat CCL. I'm glad you didn't cook the cat in the slow cooker.

I didn't feel much like cooking, but the organic Italian sausage was getting close to its "best before" date, so I wanted to use them. I fried them all and put some in the snack drawer. The other two went into some pasta sauce that Stirling made and had put in the freezer. I also fried up a couple of long chilies with the Italian sausage. I served it over whole wheat spaghetti. It was yummers. I put a block of Grana Padano on the table with the micro-plane. Told you I was feeling lazy.

I went with the meatball sub for a mid afternoon dinner. Delish! Thanks for the inspiration, Kay.

That does look delicious Cheryl.

I made some banana ice cream for dessert, using this recipe: Banana Ice Cream Recipe : Alton Brown : Food Network. I had over ripe bananas in the freezer and used them. This banana ice cream is lovely, but a little overly banana. Since it used the seeds from a vanilla bean, I decided to make vanilla sugar with the empty pod. I looked it up on Danish sites (they use vanilla sugar a lot and vanilla extract seldom). I have to dry the pod and maybe collect some more. I am glad I have a way to use that empty pod.

LOL!! She loves the leftover crock pot roast beef!

I can't share this pic with too many folks, you know. If the Humane Society got a whiff of this, they'd be all over me like a bad rash!

Your sub is a whole heck of a lot prettier than mine was Cheryl ! After eating ours we both needed a bath.

Thanks, Kay and taxy.

I actually could have put just a little more marinara sauce on it.

We went to our favorite Italian place last night after a quick trip to the hospital to visit our son's FIL. I had chicken Marsala on linguine with a salad. DH had chicken alfredo with a salad. I still have enough of the noodles and shrooms left for a nice lunch.

Thank you, CCL and Andy!

I was only able to eat a little more than half of the sub - I got too full. I wrapped up the rest of it and had it for breakfast this morning with a bowl of fruit.
