I made tuna salad. We had it on toasted spelt/khorasan, sourdough bread.

I was thinking of heating up some of that delicious beef stew I made last week for the first time.
I poured some into a soup bowl lined with plastic wrap, then froze it. I've got to figure out a better method of freezing and reheating my frozen beef stew. It's too bulky microwaving it in that shape. I need to put it in something flatter. Hell, it looked the shape of a bowling ball cut in half. It got kinda mushy trying to heat it up. I want to maybe use the oven next time to heat it up. Also, shouldn't I freeze it up more flat so it reheats better? I need to figure something out with regards to that. Perhaps freeze it in a vacuum bag, then boil it in the bag. At least it will be in a flatter shape and maybe not come out so mushy.

You could freeze it flat in a conventional zip lock bag and then thaw it overnight in the refrigerator or on the counter in a bowl of water. The boil in bag would be great but, aren't they kind of pricey.

Doh! I didn't think to thaw it overnight! I keep thinking here and now. Thawing it overnight would solve the mushy problem too. Thanks! Also, the bag idea is good too as I could freeze up in a flatter shape. At 40 cents for a gallon vacuum bag, I could live with that expenditure for my beef stew.

Sorry, didn't mean to halt the flow here.

I started with supper last night by making potato salad. A lot of potato salad. As in "family reunion size" potato salad. There are two of us.

We're having grilled burgers and hot dogs, some of last night's leftover corn and tomato side dish, and *ahem* potato salad. I won't need to cook the rest of the week. Then again, there are days I just NEED to cook.

Decided to celebrate Market Basket's return by getting a pint of Talenti Southern Butter Pecan gelato. I've wanted to splurge on a container ever since someone (Cheryl, I think) mentioned having it. The pecan nut thread mad the flavor choice easy. Plus, Butter Pecan is one of Himself's favorites.

Tuna melt on rye, and a bowl of watermelon.

I made Southwest Meatballs with Lime-Cilantro Dipping Sauce and a green salad with corn salsa for the dressing. It was okay. I need to tweak the recipes for some more flavor. My mom spent the night because she had dental work with sedation yesterday, so she had some of my homemade chicken broth and Greek yogurt with honey.
