Sunday 22nd October!

Its a horrid wet blah day. Difficult to be inspired as nothing special happening.

we had a chicken roasted with garlic, lemon, orange and thyme. I squeeszed the juice over the bird and between the brest skin and muscle then filled the cavity with the juiced segments, some thyme and garlic. We had him with rice cooked in stock and white wine, steamed carrots and broccoli and some flagolet beans.

Then we had an apple pie....I used bought puff pastry from the freezer, but I should have just made a shortcrust, lol, pastry was soggy. To make up for that I made a butter scotch sauce to serve alongside the pie and some cream.

We are having a light fresh tomato soup for supper....one I used to make as a student and was just reminded of. Anyone still hungry can have leftovers from lunch :)

Cooler and windy here today. I don't know if the sun's going to show itself. Looks like fall, for sure.

We're having braised lamb chops with tomatoes and red wine, couscous and some green vegetable to be determined.

Chilly and drizzly here too.

I made Split Pea Soup this morning with a new recipe that added dry Sherry....gosh that was good. We had grilled cheese sandwiches with it.

So tonight, we'll either have those leftovers or meatloaf sandwiches with leftovers from Saturday evening.

I guess I am lucky to be here in New England. We are having a beautiful sunny fall day. I made a big pot of chicken stock to freeze. I love to use the chicken from it for my chicken chili for tomorrow. Tonight we will go out for a bite (since I worked so hard!) to a little Italian place in town.

lulu - your roast chicken sounds tasty!

Sunny but cold here today. I think I'm ready for summer already. Yikes!

We'll be having some penne in a light parmesean sauce with broccoli and grilled chicken. Maybe some chopped basil too. I don't know about dessert, I'd like to bake something but we have no flour and no eggs and no chocolate in the house!

I have a beef bracciole cooking in tomatoe sauce, and on the side will be pasta and garlic bread. It's sunny but cool here too, around 48 degrees.

It is a beautiful day in Southern California in the San Fernando Valley.

Going out with a girlfriend for a ride to the beach and then on the way back we were invited over to a friend's for dinner.

I asked Sandy was she was making and it is a Tri Tip Roast with little potatoes, stringbeans with cheese on top and a delicious salad. For desert we are having apple pie with ice cream. She always serves cheeses, crackers and dips and we relax and talk before dinner.
