We had change in plans for desert for tonight, the kids just weren't going to settle for cottage cheese and peaches, so we dug up an old recipe for upside down pineapple cake made in a large iron skillet.
Basically just saute up some butter and brown sugar, then add pineapple chunks until carmelized and remove from heat. Add yellow cake mix and pop into the oven to bake according to the yellow cake recipe.
Only uses a bowl and an iron skillet, easy and good!

happy birthday Olivia! Goodness, how time flies!

We had something new tonight. It was baked tortellini with a Boursin cheese sauce. I sauterd some mushrooms and spinach to mix in with the sauce. There was a bread crumb and pine nut topping. We had a salad with it. Very tasty.

I had crayfish with fresh bread, Edam cheese, balsamic pickled onions, pickled ginger, baby roma tomatoes, and seafood dressing. Quite filling and very yummy. About half-way through my meal, my very old cat decided she would deign to sit next to me while I ate and thus empowered herself to be indulged in being hand-fed a few crayfish legs, until she could eat no more!!!!
Too many restaurants, not enough time...

I ended up grilling some brats. It was bitterly cold and windy, but the grill worked just fine and it's not like I had to stand there watching them cook the whole time. No buns, so I had them on thick slices of homemade bread with roasted garlic, mayo and spicy mustard. Frozen raviolis, jar sauce, jazzed up green beans, salad, and beer...... perfect football food Everything practically makes itself.

I picked up a chicken from the market and turned it into an Asian style pizza. Hoisin, scallions, shredded cheese (light on the cheese) and topped with shredded greens mixed with red chili sauce. Oreos (which I also grabbed at the store)
