Have to support our daughter's troop, ya know.

Hi Uncle Bob!!


Plans have changed as recently as 15 minutes ago. Yes, the TV is on. I bought 8 pounds of gr. beef today to make meat loaves for a family of 16 who are watching their father die at home. Incredible family. Dad is an MD with three natural children and 11 adopted children. Friends are taking turns cooking for this family. My sister and I are doing tomorrows dinner. DH wants a bit of the beef for burgers tonight. He will probably get it.

Best wishes to the family. My prayers are with them.

Wait!! What did I miss Speed? Tell me more about this "pesto cream sauce" with bacon no less.

That's so good of you Beth. Unlike so many others, you didn't need to ask "what can I do to help", you just know.

Definitely a keeper!

KL's Tuscan Pizza Casserole,

I made the casserole with spinach, I think next time I will chop up some artichokes and add them to the spinach or maybe swap the spinach for chopped broccoli or maybe thin sliced zucchini or...
Glad you like it Bea! Great ideas for changing it up too, especially the artichoke hearts. Sliced olives would be good too.

I ordered this today, and I know I'll use it often. They come smaller too.

That's really kind of you Beth and friends, to step up when you know it's needed and appreciated.

Yesterday's burritos becomes today's chili with the addition of a can of tomatoes, pintos and some other ingredients. Who knows, today's chili may become tomorrow's burritos again with the magic of a slotted spoon.

Tonight (or late afternoon) the Pats were playing in a playoff game. So Pirate made chicken fingers and Morzarella sticks to eat while watching the game. Since I do not like chicken breast meat, I just ate about five of the sticks. He ate the rest with some sauce and also something different for the chicken fingers.

Next week will be the final game to see if we go to the Super Bowl.

I have a Pampered Chef stoneware dish that looks just like that. I never thought to use it for pizza

DH and I had the weirdest experience tonight. He wanted to go out to dinner so we decided to go to a nice Italian restaurant. He had never been there before; I had been a few times with friends and never had a bad experience.

The manager pretty much encouraged us to leave, even though there were empty tables. The hostess said she wanted us to wait because a few large parties had just come in and she couldn't give us good service. So we sat down to wait. Then someone else came up and said it would be 15-20 minutes, did we really want to wait. So we left and went to another place we've been to many times and enjoyed a delicious Thai dinner. We could not believe they watched business walk out the door.

But the Thai dinner was good We had an appy of fried wontons (forgot to get a picture before we ate). I had steamed spring rolls and DH had stir-fried chicken with pea pods. We shared it all.

I had the Pampered Chef deep dish baker back in the day too GG. I loved that thing. Now it costs even more than it did back then when I ruined the weekly budget to buy it. The dang thing busted in the oven one night with a giant bang, and Pampered Chef couldn't have cared less.
Ohhh yes, use it for deep dish pizza it would be perfect!
