Today's vittles? Sunday, 11-24-13.

Comfort food today since it's so cold.

I just put on a big crock-pot full of meaty short ribs, along with a mess 'o onions and some garlic. Taters are peeled and cut ready for when they become mashed taters. Haven't decided on a green veggie yet, but I'm leaning toward baby lima beans. Iced tea, as usual and more of our yummy coconut cream pie for dessert. That should cover it for today.

Going to make "a little of this and a little of that" chicken pasta with smoked motz. Have some grape tomatoes, fresh basil and fennel leftover from other dishes. Might even have some other things to toss in.

It's cold and windy. I have a headache from the wind. Comfort food here. Making Himself's college favorite, tuna/veggie/mushroom soup/rice casserole. Quick, easy, one pot (or two, since he likes way more rice than I so I mix it the bigger casserole dish, take some out, and add more rice to his). Might sprinkle a bit of cheese over the top just before it's done.

Spending the rest of the day laying in my chair, cat on my lap, trying to forget that I get a bad headache every time the wind is strong. 40 MPH gusts an it's gusting all the time.

Pizza and wings, Papa John's style. A bit tired today and will be working tomorrow, so not much time for the kitchen the next couple of weeks.

My boss quit and they haven't replaced her yet, it's going to be fun with me running two desks. No, I don't want the position...too many headaches and it's another step away from patient care.

Oh no! Not Patron's mom? Great. Just what you need.

Sure wish Cruella DeVille, my boss, would quit....

I think I'll go ahead with the previously planned chili. Unfortunately, we're down to the last onion.

Defrosting some chicken wings for dinner tonight. I was going to do them on the grill but it's still quite windy here. We've had two brief power interruptions today. If the wind continues, using the gas grill may not be the best idea. I may have to use the oven.

I was going to cook, until I realized I was out of onions. Really don't feel like shopping today.

I would have thought with the power interruptions that using the gas grill would be your best option.
I've been noticing something with my Genesis already though. It appears the flame is only coming out of one side in all of the burners. The left side. I don't even know how that is possible.

You could get one of these for the grill flares and blowing flames:
