It is too hot to do much cooking (not to mention the high temperatures and humidity totally draining us of all energy today), so now that it has cooled off a teeny bit, I am about to cook some hot dogs, heat up some green beans, and add a side of cottage cheese.

Beef teriyaki stir fry with lots and lots of veggies at our house tonight.

takeout again. i slept a few hours, then worked on the yard and pool, then had a ballgame, then a coaches' meeting, so dinner was tex mex on the way into work.

steak fajitas with cheese, sides of mexican rice and a lump of guac.

The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"

I am making garlic potato mash with beef bourgingon. It has been in the oven for 2,5 hours already and very soon I can have a taste. Cannot wait! :)

YUMMM! That sounds like the kind of dinner I would love to have on a Friday or Saturday night and watch movies!

Thursday night, we had turkey subs with potato salad.
A little kindness goes a long way.

I used some of my duck eggs and used coconut extract instead of vanilla (don't have either vanilla beans or vanilla extract at the house in the City--I know exactly where the vanilla beans are, and they aren't here), soooo since I used coconut extract, I used about 1/2 c coconut milk (I added that when I added the 35% cream). And, since I didn't have fresh lemon juice, I used lime. The "slurry" tastes really nice. I used ATK's trick--I put it in a cake pan to cool and put 1 c in the freezer to freeze. I'm about to check the temp of the stuff in the fridge now--40F and we'll be good to go.
what do you mean? I eat them raw all the time.
