Dawg,

Do a search on "one quart kraut" or "small batch kraut", you will see several recipes that simplify kraut making. Most of them are for a quart at a time but I think you could put it up in pints.

My brother and his gf invited me round their place to tea; they like to cook.

We had home made smoked mackerel pate (with creme fraiche and horseradish) served in a mini kiner jar on a small wooden board with melba toast. This was followed by a rich Italian sausage 'ragut' with superb, good quality al dente rigatoni. Dessert was home made curled brandy snaps filled with a creamy mixture (cream, nutella and vanilla) topped with berries and toasted hazelnuts.

They have already had my top, successful recipes so I will have to do a lot more recipe testing before I feel confident enough to invite these gourmets over!

Knoshing night for me. Spike brought me a large bag of Wise potato chips. I had to share them with Teddy. Is there anything that dog won't eat? The only thing I have seen him refuse is cooked mushrooms. Then I had about three large rice cakes with cheddar cheese. I'm full. For the four rice cakes that are left, I will put peanut butter on them and then zap them in the micro. The pb melts right down into the rice cake. It is like eating fresh roasted peanuts.

I'm heading out to the grill with some highly seasoned rib eye steaks, and the SC is making us some fresth spinach salads complete with sliced Crimini mushrooms and bacon onion dressing from TJ's. SC will have some garlic toast. I'm glad the wind has died down for the grilling.

Lot's of good sounding dinners here tonight!!

My dinner didn't turn out as expected. Tyler has an after school activity on Tuesdays but it was cancelled - so after a "HELP!" phone call from his dad, little man came over just as I was taking the roast chicken out of the oven. By the time I made his snack and we played outside, I wasn't interested in roasting sweet potato 'fries' or making avocado salad, so I just had chicken. LOL
