I've been keeping up with the leftovers in anticipation of today's shopping spree. I'm done, but I'm whupped!

I'm planning on whatever I can fill my belly with that doesn't involve cooking.

Relaxing and resting my aching back, having a couple of beers.

This morning I had no clue what I was going to prepare for dinner, then the inspiration sledge hammer hit me.

We had baby lima beans, parslied Yukon gold potatoes, herb-crusted pork roast (small loin), iced tea and more of the yummy wedding/anniversary cake.

I did the pork roast like one I'd cooked recently, all covered with kosher salt and herbes de provence. Omigosh! Just as good as the first one.

Stirling is off to his role playing game and brought the leftovers of yesterday's Indian meal.

I wanted something savoury and easy. So I made what we call a Greek salad around here: tomatoes, sliced onion, feta, oregano, and doused in olive oil and there have to be some kalamata olives too. Then I fried up a cold boiled potato in some bacon fat. That really hit the spot.

Grilled ham and provolone on sourdough and a bowl of tomato soup. Tired tonight and happy to see Friday - it's been a long week.

taxlady, your salad looks so good, I love Greek salads.

Harry, I pretty much agree that one can almost never have too much garlic. 40 clove garlic chicken is one of my faves. I also like to mush up the cloves on a good toasted bread.

Starting the pre-vacation 'fridge cleaning. We finished off last night's chicken mushroom soup, then Himself had the bit of plain leftover ziti from last week's mac & cheese with a topping of the last of a jar of ready-made sauce. I'm full so we will be done eating for the night! Well, unless I get a bit hungry again. We still have a lot of mushrooms that need to be used (I forgot I had a pound when I bought a pound ) so the midnight snack might be a small plate of scrambled eggs with sauteed mushrooms. The (hopefully) rest of them will go into the kale with some bacon tomorrow.

Really didn't feel like cooking tonight, but finally whipped up some Mexican inspired omelets, but it was pretty late by the time we ate :/

sounds darn tasty katie! talking about spuds,which happen to be one of my fav veggies,i bought some russet potatoes for the first time this year.they were grown over here by albert bartlett famous for his "rooster" spuds & i believe you can only call them idaho russets if they are grown in idaho?
anyway,what a belter of a spud that is!!.absolutely delicious & great texture too imo.made great chips(fries)!!
