I made a quick tomato meat sauce for pasta.

Our grandson (almost 4 yo) is visiting and will be here for dinner. His favorite is Grampy's pasta sauce over penne. I love to watch him shovel it in as fast as he can, mumbling "This is soooo good!" over and over.

It helps if he's really hungry when dinner time rolls around.

Pork loin sliced thin breaded Italian style and fried served with broccoli rabe (sautéed with slivered garlic, ground red pepper flakes, sea salt, ground peppercorns, EVOO & grapeseed oil), buttered spaetzle draped with cheese sauce (Knorr’s 4 cheese sauce mix with Frank’s hot sauce, dry yellow mustard & shredded cheddar added).

I'm doing Goodweed's sloppy joes. DH found a supplier of really good gluten free bread products so lunch was french toast and dinner had to center around his potato onion hamburger buns. And I haven't pulled that recipe out in awhile so tonight's the night!

Wish we could have fries with them but our fryer is broken (too much use!) so I will have to come up with a side.

It was a choice between Mrs .40 making hamburger helper or .40 making goulash. We're having goulash tonight.

I baked some haddock and than put it into a salad I made. The salad was a lot fo things - radishes, some lettuce, cheese, carrots, broccolli, piquillo peppers, hardboiled egg, and probably some stuff I forgot since we ate it all. I also made a homemade lemon based vinegrette to go on it.

Sorry, MsM, I actually got it directly from Goodweed of the North but I am sure if you ask him nicely he will send it on to you as well! Tell him LP sent you for the best Sloppy Joe Sauce recipe ever!

Oh, and thanks for the belated birthday wishes!

I found a 10# fresh pork picnic ham for 99 cents/#. It was so big, I had to cook it in my soup pot (after peeling off the skin). After 5 hours at 325 it was gorgeous. I didn't season it when I cooked it, because I love that natural flavor. I sliced myself off a hunk, cut it into smaller slices and just added a little sprinkle of salt. Heaven!

Now I have to add more beans to my next grocery list as the 1 cup of pinto beans I have left on hand won't be enough for that enormous bone. Or... I'll check to see if there are collard greens available.
