Scrambled eggs (1/2 & ½, salt & pepper) added to red pepper and onion (sautéed in butte till soft) and cook to soft set, sliced tomato (seasoned with my AP seasoning mix, oregano and EVOO) and pan fried potatoes (potatoes, onion and red pepper seasoned with salt and ground pepper cooked in butter & oil till soft and browned).

Change of plans.
I just took the smaller filet mignon out of the freezer to thaw (from the 2-pack I bought last week) and will round it out with a cluster or two of snow crab legs, mushrooms gratin and a couple smashed redskins. Come to think of it, I've got half a zucchini left from the other night, too, so I'll also toss a few slices of zucchini on the grill.

I love the caramelized bits in the potatoes. Perfect.

I was smart enough to throw some scalloped potatoes in the crock pot this morning so with them we had fried pork chops with portabella mushrooms and a huge salad. Just too tired to do anything else. On the up side it should only be about two more days before the entire house has been painted inside. Then the carpets can be cleaned and we can begin the big move. So much to look forward to, so much work that is!

Well--my dad brought fresh walleye home from the locker plant...I was going to make grilled sirloin steak, fresh corn on the cob, and a tossed salad. I'll have to see what the "oldsters" want. Or, I could do surf-and-turf with some of the steak and some of the walleye...now there's an idea!

My better half, finally made it home last night, so I made a pasta dish that I have been waiting to make for a few days. Fetuccine, with chicken, mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, in a white wine/rose cream sauce. Salad and some marinated, spicey olives. I got to crack that bottle of Pino Grigio I have had chilled since the weekend. Birthday cake for dessert rounds out a decadent night. Couch time!

SNICKERDOODLE !!! I'm so happy to see you again honey!!

DL........can't wait to hear how you like your new stovetop smoker !!

Beautiful pictures as usual.

Nothing exciting going on here in the way of food. It will be clean out refrigerator night, and I'll be happy to have water for the first time today.
I was soaped up in my morning shower when the water stopped. Good thing I wasn't washing my hair too. Towel dried and pattered my way to the kitchen to get some bottled water to return to shower and rinse off. AGGGGH!!

Turned out to be a water main break with the City's responsibility, but DANG!!

Shoot, Kayelle, what a pain! We are on a well system here, and sometimes lightening kills the pump.

LOVE the little smoker! I currently smell like alderwood (and my mother smells of elderberries-MP ref, sorry) because I kept sliding the lid open. Much chastisement from DH. The swai was beautifully smoked and cooked perfectly. It did take longer to cook, my fault. I have a glasstop, so I brought out my Berghoff induction burner, which I had forgotten about. Worked like a charm! I have chicken breast thawed to do it again. Maybe even yet tonight! Thanks for your advice! Much smokage will be happening.
