I made black beans and ham in the CP last night, DH proclaimed it the best ever this morning! That, with rice, and some roasted cherry toms. What are you having?

I threw some chicken breasts in the crock pot with a can of crushed pineapple and a bottle of Russian dressing. I've got some rice cooking right now so dinner will happen soon.

I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Really feel like some soup tonight, it's a blustery rainy day here, though the sun is trying to make an appearance. Going to go see what I can scare up.
If you don't like the food, have more wine!

Grilling. The kitchen's too clean to mess it up with dinner.

Pork tenderloin and roasted reds and a veggie.

I just got a lamb burger ready for the grill; all mixed with diced red onions, mint, oregano and stuffed with feta cheese. I'll also be sautéing some Brussels sprouts and making soup.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

Oven roasted beef, baked potato, yorkshire pudding, salad of sorts with cucumber, grape tomatoes, avocado, sweet peppers, and blue cheese dressing. For dessert we had mulled apple cider. It was so good and not nearly as much work as I expected. Sprout did the baked potatoes. I don't know why I thought a beef roast in the oven would be difficult or take too long, it was pretty easy. I'm deffinitely going to have to make the yorkshire pudding again. That stuff is good! I'm thinking I might try popovers only a sweet version for a dessert in the near future. They seem like they would be good with heavy whiped cream and preserves.

I just had a repeat of some hanky pankies --mini sausage/ burger/ cheese sandwiches on deli rye from earlier today, along with a defrosted /oven heated grilled boneless chicken breast and a couple beanie size tomatoes.

Finally got around to making this Bacon Ranch Potato Salad using the homemade Buttermilk Ranch dressing from this recipe on that same blog. I think the dressing (made about a week ago) took longer than the potato salad! Oh, it was worth the work - I will be making this version again. And again... Paired the potato salad with hot dogs steamed in beer (had half a bottle of flat Bass left over from my crockpot bratwurst last week) and the last of a huge batch of baked beans with added bacon I made a while back. Couldn't find any hot dog buns except for the split-top kind and I consider those usable for a seafood salad only - they're too gummy for hot dogs IMO. We just used sliced Panera homestyle white bread and it was great!

I had a book club meeting here starting at 3 p.m. and made Greek meatballs, tzatziki, pita chips and assorted fresh veggies for that, so I wasn't very hungry. So we had leftovers: one chicken thigh each and some veggie pasta salad.

Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.
