Hey, DampC. Congratulations on finally making your pizza. Now ain't that good eatin'? We always make our pizzas homemade. Just doesn't get any better than that.

Yum! That sounds tasty. I haven't made that in a couple months. dh mentioned it last night, we'll be eating that soon.

I had leftover mashed potatoes. They were gross.

I made the brownies today that looked so delicious in the photo. With toasted almonds and caramel. They were also gross. Too bitter and too sweet and too cakey. Somehow it didn't click to me that they would be cakey, I like chewy brownies. I can't believe I wasn't thinking, especially since there was sifted cake flour in the recipe. oh well.

Tomorrow's dinner will be good!

We're cleaning out the refrigerator so it'll be a variety of left overs.
I've made Ina's chicken stew with biscuits for years - its easy. I cut the recipe in half and it still easily makes a 9 x 13 pan of stew. Instead of cooking the chicken in the oven, I throw 2-3 bone-in breasts in the crock with pearl onions, carrots and garlic, a little olive oil, sprinkle of herbes de provence and a splash of olive oil and a can of chicken broth. When the breasts are done, I chop the meat and carrots, onions up. Then I simply follow the recipe starting with the onions being cooked in butter and the making of the sauce.

I usually do not cut the biscuit recipe in half because we like alot of biscuits on top.

Its great leftover too - I'm having it for lunch at work today.

Try it sometime, I think you'll like it.

I just hate it when I work so hard on making something and it turns out gross! What a disappointment and waste of time. Dinner tonight will be a lot more tasty. No grossness allowed!

My next door neighbor showed up with hootch and salami, we added cheese and crackers, and we had a small (three of us) impromptu storm party while the snow piled up.
