It must be Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2014

That does look fantastic, Steve!

I threw together a concoction of unlabeled beans I found in the freezer which weren't great on their own, a bag of Spanish rice I didn't care for after making it but froze it anyway (Pioneer Woman recipe), some leftover cherry tomato soup that was good, some V-8, mixed veggies and fresh frozen corn. Heated and garnished with shredded cheddar and crushed Tostitos, it was really good! Glad I didn't just pitch the ingredients I didn't initially care for, together they made some great soup.

Thanks Andy. It took me two shots tonight. At first I pan fried it and used a meat thermometer, but it seemed like it wasn't done, even though the reading said med rare. So, I put it in the oven on broil to finish it. I should have just used my instinct first. But, luckily, it turned out fine...

Looks wonderful Steve. It reminds me of one of our favorite breakfasts..eggs poached in my Chili Verde.

Don't you just love it when a dinner comes together like that Dawg? It's like free food!

I didn't have enough of last nite's leftovers to feed both of us, so I plopped the "fried cabbage, potato, onion, sausage" over some Top Ramen noodles with broth. Pretty darn good!

Exactly, Kayelle! I hate to waste food. Sounds like you came up with some good stuff too!

I figured it might be a Middle-Eastern pop singer, like Shakira from Colombia.



In what could be the last cookout of the year (our grill isn't easy to access in the snow) we had hot dogs and potato salad. Lots left over because I need leftovers for tomorrow.
