Decided on poached eggs and toast.. Was good..

UGH, I'm so sorry Ross...what a disappointment. I've had that happen a time or two here in CA - I think they must have been old.

That's one beautifully cooked rib eye Cheryl. Great job as always.
I'm doing the same on the steak thread from Scott and here's our dinner tonight.

Last night we had smoked turkey and cheddar sausages, peppers and onions on hoagie rolls. We used half a roll for one sausage because the rolls were so long. This was a first time meal and we weren't all that happy with the sausages.

Sorry your chokes didn’t turn out tender. I love stuffed artichokes. That used to happen to me also. But now that I cook my stuffed artichokes in my Instant Pot they are always nice and tender.

I did mine in my IP... Have done so 3 or 4 times recently and this time, they were like rocks.. Just bad chokes, I guess..


I don't stuff them as, when young we would just stop by a field, pick what we needed and steam them as soon as we got home.. Delicious.. I've tried various way of prep but, always go back to plain..

We had mac&cheese, sweet peas, ham steak, and pumpkin roll slices for dessert. Will probably have leftovers for lunch today.

Oh. Sorry. I havenít had that happen yet that I know of. When I cooked them on stove or microwave I just thought I didnít cook them long enough.
