Mmm....sounds good, kades. And you are getting an early start.

The cream of potato soup posts got to me so today's menu will be a variation of that - I have some broccoli that needs used, so it will be cream of broccoli and potato soup. Will need to get going on the prep work for that in a bit.

Cooking at Zhizara's

I'm going full throttle in the kitchen today. Shopping was Friday so I've got lots of goodies.

Yesterday I cooked up a nice thick hunk of turkey neck and made stock. I saved 2 cups of the stock to make gravy for stew and stripped off the neck meat this morning.

I couldn't find a 1# bag of regular carrots so I'm simmering a whole 2# for the freezer minus enough for the stew, and enough for the dilled mashed potatoes.

Ready to start: 2 sliced yellow squash and a pack of green onions

Next: 3 big russet potatoes for garlic mashed and dilled potatoes mashed with some of the carrots

I need more taco meat so I've got the hamburger and some ground sausage thawing to start later.

I think that's enough to keep me busy today!

Morning kades!

The time changed for us last night, and for some unearthly reason I was wide awake at 430 this morning! I prepped a meatloaf for dinner tonight, and I think there will be mashed potatoes with gravy, some fresh corn I blanched and froze this summer, and then home made Saskatoon pie with ice cream and coffee for dessert. I did all the prep at 6 am, had my first coffee and was out the door by 8. Now I'm ready for a nap

beef stroganoff served,as they do in parts of russia & iran,with matchstick fries.washed down with smirnoff black & tonic on the rocks...colder than a cossacks nose(in keeping with the dishes soviet origins) huzzah!!

Repeat of last night's menu since there were loads and loads of leftovers and we'll be eating at a friend's home tomorrow night. Rather not keep things too long in the fridge, lest they become UFOs - unidentified food objects.

It's going to be a simple supper tonight. Cut up some potatoes and boil them up in a pot. When they are about halfway cooked I'll throw in a good hunk of Polish Sausage. We'll have a cucumber salad with sour cream and a nice piece of Beinesticht for dessert.

I announced "It's meatloaf today" and heard back "I don't think the 49ers are playing today". One of the strangest I've heard, so whatever I put with the meatloaf probably doesn't matter.

Yummy sounding meals here. I can never get enough meatloaf, still have some sliced and frozen for when that meatloaf sammie hankerin' comes along.

Harry, sounds like you and your momma had such a nice Sunday. 98 years old....wow! Good son, ya are. Great looking stroganoff....I've been craving that lately, too....and yes, it must include real sour cream!
