Glenn's off helping his son with construction work and moving equipment so he'll be tired and hungry when he gets home.

In a little while I'm going to put some Polish sausage, sauerkraut and potatoes in the crock-pot and let them get "happy" together. I'll make a skillet of cornbread to sop up the juices. We'll drink some iced tea and have some more of the apple pie I made earlier this week. Comfort food all the way 'round.

My daughter is fascinated by numbers. I remember several years ago she came running into our bedroom at an obnoxiously early hour to announce that it was 05:05:05 on 05/05/05. Apparently she had set her alarm so she could witness the event.

I said, "That's very nice, honey. But I don't have to get up for at least another hour and neither do you, so let's all go back to bed."

Anyway.... dinner. I have cabbage, so I am thinking maybe cabbage rolls tonight.

Oh, and happiest of birthdays, GQ.

We've had a lot of rain lately so the chard got huge!

We're getting rid of leftovers. Have the chili in the crock pot for lunch and will reheat the spaghetti for supper. Hope to spend the day cleaning and getting ready for the wedding next Saturday!

No idea, there are several tasks at hand to do before I head out of town on Monday. Have to make sure I get them all done.

Freezer inspection in a bit then maybe I can decide. I have a weeks worth of cooking to get done in two days or Shrek might starve!!!

Dear PF,
I think you posted this in the wrong thread. Silly Ogress this thread is for menus.
