I went to the store today in search of Oysters for oyster stew, don't know where Steve K finds his, not at my market I guess. I don't usually Like oysters that much, but I like the flavor. At the store, there was a frenzy, pending the up-coming week's cold snap. No Carts available. The fresh flowers were almost sold out. I guess it's nice to think of your sweetie in times like this. What's worse, there was almost a Riot in the Soft Drink Aisle. NO Coca Cola. They were on sale, but really , not that big a sale. . I would have avoided and probably wouldn't have notice except this was near where I got in line to pay and go. Get as Fast As I Could. The temp dropped only 5 degrees from when I started out until I got home again.

Ahh. Hot Soup. Slippers. Football Playoffs on the tv. I think my Kids missed me. I'm staying In.
Wow. What a bummer all the way around. I hate shopping excursions like that.
All this talk of oyster stew... I'll have to pick some up and make some again. I saw live oysters at my store earlier this week, so they are still getting them in.

I picked up a pizza when I was out around 3:30, so wasn't really hungry enough to make supper later. I did have one Klondike bar left though...

I always make enough schnitzel that we can use it for sandwiches.

"Wow. What a bummer all the way around. I hate shopping excursions like that."

I didn't mean to imply anything negative about yesterday's shopping experience. They have free coffee right inside the door, which is a good place to warm up and wait your turn for a cart. I take the bus, so I don't care if their parking lot is full and cars are circling the overflow parking lot too. However, I agree, the smart person does not wait to go shopping on a Saturday!

in the 24 hours since, I forget what I thought I so desperately needed and can think of 3 more things I should have gotten. I'm not going out today!

I just step over the bodies beside in the soda pop aisle. I figure it's one less person waiting in line ahead of me.

We had left over Sauerbraten from NY day. I made some fresh Spätzel to go with it along with a salad.

Thank you it was quite nice.

I got the recipe from the Ninja 3-in-1 cooker, I'm growing fond of this cooker. I used spiced rum because I was all out of bourbon.

Don't know. I use thin sliced sirloin tip roast or round roast, pound it thinner and marinade in a mixture of garlic, olive oil and red wine for a few hours. Then I lay them out individually and in the upper third place a layer of basil or spinach, layer of pepperoni, layer of my version of mushroom duxelles and strips of provolone. Roll them up like a burrito, seal with tooth picks, brown them in a saute pan and add to the Sunday gravy to cook through. I remove them to a baking dish with some of the gravy, cover each with a slice of provolone and bake at 350 F until the cheese melts. Meanwhile, I skim the gravy and serve it with the bucatini.
