I discovered we have grass again in the back yard. Such an occasion calls for grilled cheese burgers, grilled onion slices and cole slaw. Yes, pretty simple and good tasting. Dx is bringing a hot out of the oven granny smith apple pie. I will make her dog a burger too.

Oh well, that was then and this is now!
Do you not eat apples at all anymore? Or do you miss commercial apple sauce? Store-bought applesauce in my kitchen is used just for baking. If we're having it for supper, I make my own. Chunked up apples, a bit of water, cinnamon in a saucepan, lid on top, and cook until apples are soft. Delish! If you can eat applesauce that way, you just need to plan ahead so that it can chill down. I'm not much for planning, so we just eat it warm.

I opened up a jar Kraut, and rinsed it slightly the way I always do then dumped it into my big deep skillet with a handful of itty bitty potatoes for the SC along with a can of fire roasted tomatoes and a can of chicky broth. Letting it simmer for a while and then adding both Bratwurst and Bokwurst to the top with a lid on top. Smells like my childhood home around here.

Balsamic BBQ pork roast. The recipe was supposed to be for chicken, but I am putting the sauce on the pork. I was supposed to simmer the sauce until it reduced a little and became thick, but after a couple minutes I figured it was thick enough and poured it over the pork roast. I hope I like this. That's a huge pork roast and I didn't cut it up like I usually do - I have no idea why. I'm going to bake it for a while and then turn the broiler on and see if that caramelizes the sauce if the baking doesn't. Someone explain to me why there has to be 2 "a"s in caramel.

I also threw the last of the Dutch potatoes I got at Trader Joe's earlier this month on top of the roast. They're a little soft, but I think they'll be OK for eating.

Apples have dropped off the list.

The folks at Wegman's make a no sugar added chunky applesauce that has a nice fresh taste, if they ever decide to package it in half cup "lunch box" cups I will give it a try. At this point one six pack would last me a year!

The only fruits that I still buy, once or twice a year, are lemons, strawberries and cranberries.
