Made a pot of potato soup last night so it would be available when my boys get home today from their Dad's. My younger son asked me to make it again! Going to have it with french bread and fruit salad (peaches, pears, grapes...maybe banana). Then offer them banana cake for desert. I made the cake this weekend for the first time and it is delicious. I need the boys to eat it so I won't be tempted by it all week.... I could eat the cream cheese frosting with a spoon.

When I was browning up all the pork cubes for my chili verde last night I saw that I had way too much pork, so I took out about three cups of meat to do something else with it today.

I have some ideas rolling around about what to do with it today involving red and yellow bell peppers, onions, and fresh cranberries from the freezer.

Chapter 2 to follow later in the day.


I'm so craving desert, and I'm such a lousy baker I'll have to figure something out.

Top with Swiss, cheddar and Asiago cheese. Since DS is home for the week and DH is teaching tonight I can make both of them happy since the pizza warms up well.
Sounds delicious. What a great way to use up leftovers.

Beef braised in Barolo (except I can't afford Barolo! Using Zinfandel instead) and broccoli, don't know what I'll do for a side yet.
