babe,

Yeah I guess I am. I was getting tired of making pies for dessert and these cookies let me experiment with flavors and combinations very easily.

I made the cherry/chocolate ones this afternoon. I'm not 100% sold on them. They are missing something.. but I'm not sure what. They are not bad, just not what I was going for.

I used a "cherry chip" cake mix, and added about a 1/4 cup chopped marischino cherries, about 1 cup of dark chocolate chips, and 1 tsp vanilla. If anyone want to try these I'm open to suggestions.

Well here it is. I put quartered red potatoes in with the swiss steak instead of making mashed.

That swiss steak looks really good, Dave.
Mom and me always liked it brown, Dad and sister liked it red, with tomatoes and such. She used to fix two dinners basically everytime we had swiss steak. And that's the way I like it

I'm fixing beef short ribs and hoping they come out as well as they did the first time, when I grilled them earlier this year. They still have an hour or so to go, the slaw dressing is made and I'll probably fix some thick cut steak fries to go with them. Oh, something different, I had some apples, so during the 'wrapped in foil moisturising phase' (which is going on now), I put some apple chunks in with them. I'm hoping they cook allright and turn tender. Maybe I'll grill them a bit and sprinkle brown sugar on them......

Dave,

Full as I am from DH's dinner, that swiss steak, vegis and cookies look really tasty! and so pretty to look at.

DH - true to his word - cooked me up a wonderful Thai meal even though he had a cold and wasn't feeling too well. He even went to the grocery store to buy the last few ingredients that he needed to make it. I'm so proud of him - he even cleaned the kitchen too!

The sauteed fish in yellow curry was especially good as was the Pad See Eiw which had little baby scallops mixed in.

Thanks pacanis & Mav'sWife I usually use the store-bought 'seasoning and bag' method but decided to try making it from scratch this time. Researched a few different recipes and came up with this one. YUM! I'm NEVER going back!

I've never had or seen brown swiss steak, what do you used instead of a tomato sauce?

I'll have to see if I wrote down the recipe, Dave. (Geez I hope so). I only made it once and can only remember beating the flour into the meat with a tenderizer.... I'll post it when I come up with something.
