Made a huge full-of-stuff salad for each of us, then we'll rummage through the "little of this, little of that" in the fridge. Himself is heating up the pint of pasta fagioli his sis gave us the other day so we can each have a bit. There is also a small portion of Hoppin' John, some of last night's steak, and the breast of the rotisserie chicken I brought home to make sure there was enough. It seems to be missing its limbs...

Quiche, or maybe it's a tart, not sure which, is on my agenda for tomorrow's football game. Not giving away all my secrets tonight though.
Thanks for the quiche endorsement. And premade crust is good in my book

And quiche tomorrow? Didn't I read something about hot dogs?
The surprise is on.

Pac, you never had Quiche?

It's pie.

Savoury pie with a savoury egg custard.

And delicious.

(Works brilliantly with lovely smoked bacon by the way).

Just sayin...

That happens at my house too, but I'm the culprit.

Taxy, we both nibbled a bit when the bird first showed up. Except it seems to have been missing a drumstick and a full wing when I brought it home! I noticed the poor bird looked a little battered but I figured those pieces were tucked beneath the body. Wrong. Someone is gonna have some 'splaining to do when I go to the store next week. After all, this store is my main one for shopping and I drop, on average, $80 or so a week. With prices creeping up some I'm getting too close to $100 to suit me.

Whisk, I know you posted "LIVE- from your house- ...." but my strange brain keeps thinking "LIVE - at your house-..." Fortunately, I didn't have to chase my chicken around the yard to kill it. I don't even bring lobsters home live! The store I buy them at steams them for free.

Nothing wrong with a premade crust! With a premade crust, quiche is so quick and simple to make!

My other half is spoiled, he'll eat whatever I cook, but he always can tell when the crust isn't homemade and he's a crust lover.

Chili, corn bread, and chocolate pie (made from scratch filling with premade crust). You ignorant slut.

I have some lamb rib chops marinating and getting ready to have their way with my grill. I got a scalloped potato bake from Costco that we all like and a cucumber and tomato salad marinating. We never got to the sashimi last night so we'll do that as well.

Mine can too, he says it feels different in his mouth. It doesn't seem to impact how much makes it into his mouth though ...
