Not sure what I will have tonight.....leftover potato soup or baked sweet potato will almost certainly be involved. It is one of my "free" nights alone.

Today's Commodity box contained Great Northern Beans. Now I like them, I buy a can occasionally, but I've never been able to get them to cook all the way.

Since it's cold today, I'm just going to put a couple of cups in a pot of water and boil them with nothing added.

It should warm up my apartment nicely, and just maybe I'll get some usable beans.

Well my flank steak has a coating of EVOO, nicely seasoned and waiting to be cooked on the stove-top grill pan. 3 1/2 bags of baby spinach cleaned, chopped and wilted waiting to be squeezed dry. It will be either tossed with butter or "creamed". I will be making taters but unsure in what form at this time. And most likely mushroom caps in some fashion also.

Due to my usual lack of foresight, I didn't defrost the meat early enough for goulash or beef barley soup so we're having BLTs tonight.

Hey, give me a little slack there Frank! After all I am working on a small keyboard and until I switched browsers to Firefox I didn't have instant spell check...I really rely on that. Okay, it wouldn't have caught the food instead of foot, but it is my excuse and I am sticking to it

Oh, and the foot is now about 5 inches of wet sludge.

By the way, where are you planning to take that cake?

UB, have fresh green beans gone sky high there? The size package I usually get was over $5.00 today. We won't be having fresh green beans tonight.

We're having Creamy Lemon Chicken with a caesar salad, pasta and some cooked veggie to be named later. The caesar salad is also up for debate as I'm feeling a little coleslawish and have some cabbage that needs using up.
