The bloomin' onion that I attempted to cook this afternoon, didn't turn out like I expected. It wasn't crispy , the petals were limp. But hey I actually got the Outback Steakhouse Sauce for the bloomin' onion correct.

We went out with friends to dinner tonight. The friends introduced us to a wonderful noodle house. A really yummy beef noodle soup was filling and delicious!

Happy anniversary Katie and Glenn! I have been hankering for some ham, I didn't want to buy a big ham for two people (and while I'm on the subject, why is ham so darn expensive) I digress.....I instead bought a couple of smoked ham hocks, and made 15 bean soup for dinner. Served with toasted crusty garlic bread. We really enjoyed it. This is a soup that we used to make every ski season and eat everyday for lunch on our ski holiday.

Mmm 'Bunny, love me some bean soup. Any kind. I enjoy my Mom's recipe the most, but I'll happily use whatever package of bean combinations I find.

Lordy that looks good Harry! Unfortunately, each and every time I do burgers of most kinds on the stovetop I get my smoke detectors to screaming. At least I can grill turkey burgers. That's good, right?

Thanks so much! I have a few lonely burger buns in the freezer that I can use for the stuffing. I don't ever remember using the store bought stuffing mix, but dry bread works fine for me. IF we run out of leftovers before vacation I might make this; if not, for sure it's on the menu when we get back home.

Finished up making a tweaked version of this Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup . Less butter, no heavy cream (used equal portions half&half and 1% milk), BUT instead of the broth/water combination I used 6 cups of homemade chicken stock. Got rid of a fair amount of mushrooms too. No shortage of flavor with this bowl!

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
wondered what the crunch was mate,my dentist will be delighted!!
yep,pickles.mrs elswood's pickled/sliced haimisha cucumbers

thanks aunty.dead simple pot salad.i use a firm/waxy salad spud like charlotte or carlingford.prefer carlings 'cos the skin just rubs off under a running tap.boil or steam til slightly undercooked.tip into a bowl & leave til just warm,cut any large spuds into quarter's,add mayo,salt,pepper & chopped dill(or dried,one of the few dried herbs i will use),mix it all up & leave,covered,for an hour or so,to let the flavours mingle.done!!
