What's cooking Monday August 31, 2009?

well my oven is finally fixed. the broiler flames were to short and bake was taking to long to heat up and taking to long to cook. we needed a regulator and 2 igniters (sp). i was in a car accident last week and the car has been in the shop for a week and still hasn't been inspected by the insurance company. things just keep going wrong.

i have no clue whats cooking. i will try to get to the store for something to bake and/or broil!! LOL

whats cooking at your house?

hey ms. m., hope you are feeling better!

and I am right there with you in not knowing what's for dinner...

have been canning 4 consecutive days now, not my normal procedure, I usually take a day off in between to clean the jars and get them situated in their new home, but they are still all lined up in the canning center...

and today i am hosting a lunch for friends, so have been cleaning and cooking/baking for that..

will probably do what I've done the past few dinners; through together some odd ball items and call it supper..

I'm in the midst of doing laundry. If it was just the regular laundry day it would be fine but I hope to get all the quilts and bedding washed that we brought home from my in-laws (3 army duffle bags worth) as well. Since most of my time will be upstairs, I'll probably just throw together some spaghetti and garlic bread. I'm really in the mood for chicken and dumplings but don't think I'll have the time today.

Hope you're ok, msmofet!

Probably something quick tonight - I'm thinking crunchy grilled cheese and some fresh fruit. I'm in the mood for brownies, so I'll probably bake up a pan of those for dessert. :)
