No worries Cheryl. I have far more successes than failures and it's all a learning curve as far as I am concerned!

Yours sounds delicious.

Trying a new recipe from SL. Pecan coated, pan fried chicken breasts with a maple-bourbon-mustard sauce and mashed taters. I pre-made the sauce to the point just before adding the heavy cream to finish, is it good.

it's 2:00 pm here and we just finished off substantial BLT's for lunch. It appears I live in serious Broncos territory. We are about to have some brownies and ice cream to start the game off, and will have some fake crab salad during the second half. Weird eating day.

Oh yeah, that sounds utterly delicious!

It's an imitation crab product made from fish. Much less expensive than the real thing and not bad tasting.

Ah, okay. Thanks GG. I believe this looks very much like what we call "crabsticks" here. My ex loved those things!

We're having Cornish hens on the merry-go-round, aka rotisserie, along with sauteed Vidalia onions, steamed Italian green beans, iced tea and, with any luck, the last of the baklava.

Since I've introduced Glenn to Cornish hens, he often asks for "those little chickens on the merry-go-round." I'm happy to oblige. Today's pair have fresh rosemary and garlic inside their cavities and rosemary and garlic stuffed under the breast skin. Sure smells good around here.

My first attempt at low carb batter fried cod. The batter is made from almond flour. It was semi-successful; it took some doing to get the temperature of the oil under control. The flavor was excellent, though.
