Harry, is cukes to you pickles to us?
Nice burgers. Piled high, just like I like them. Too bad about the memory card, but it could have been worse. It could have fallen onto your grill pan as you were cooking

Give us this day our daily bacon.

The yungun found some salmon filets in the freezer. They are thawing and will be baked with some kind of rice side dish and salad. The big bowl is filled with candy and the back up bags are on the table ready to be opened in case the first ones run out. I'm not dressing in costume. After work today, I just want to be in my stretchy pants and big t-shirt.

BTW Happy Anniversary Katie and Glenn!
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

For dessert we will have wedding cake and champagne.

No costumes for us and most likely no trick-or-treaters except for our two granddaughters who will be delivered by their mother so we can appreciate the girls' costumes and dole out some candy. We live way out in the country and have few neighbors. What neighbors we do have are our age or older and only have grown children.

Although, even if we did live in an area where we might have more little ghoulies and ghosties, the weather is really, crappy and supposed to get even yuckier as the day progresses.
Happy Anniversary Katie and Glenn, have a wonderful dinner and may your life be filled with happiness.

Change of plans.
The beans on toast that I had for lunch really filled me up, so I'm going to revisit Harry C's prawns with pancetta and various other stuff tonight. I might add some shrooms to it, too.

Katie and Glenn, Happy anniversary. We used to celebrate Halloween as our anniversary day too. Hard to do, as Halloween trumps the day over the years. Now we stand each on our own side of the city lake passing out candy. She's wearing fairy wings and black and dark green and I have a straw hat and overalls to go w/ my beard. It's not as long as my avatar but I have started to grow it out for Christmas. We will get together and talk about it tomorrow a.m over coffee. And chocolate candy. About as much fun as it gets in our dottage.

Mmyap. Is this legal. " a black feather fascinator that has pink butterflies". I had to google this up. Disappointing but Cute choices.

Harry, Jarlsberg is right up there as one of my favorite cheeses. You are an expert with that grill pan.

CG. I posted the Chicken and Stuffing casserole recipe
Chicken and Stuffing Casserole

I look forward to making this as a fall dinner as a plan. It can be put together on a whim too with several ingredients or just a quick trip in and out to the store. Rotisserie chicken, yes, I've done this too. Try as I may, it usually makes more than enough for one meal even for several people. Which, actually, is a good thing.

Happy anniversary, Katie and Glenn!

So far, dinner will be a couple handfuls of Milky Way Minis. And maybe carrots and Ranch dip, or not.
