I'm in experimental mode tonight. I had a bunch of small potatoes that needed to be used up, so I skinned, chopped, and boiled them, then caramelized some red onions with some leftover chopped ham, added it to the potatoes, and mixed it all together.

Finally, I made ONE MORE TRY at a white sauce and wonders of wonders, it actually thickened up this time (those pans I got are really proving their worth!). Added white cheddar cheese and when that was melted, poured it all over the potatoes, gave them another stir, and poured the whole mess into a baking dish. I even shook on a little parsley to make it look purty.

It's in the oven now and in about 20 minutes, I'll find out if I'll be eating ham and cheese potatoes for dinner or making myself a peanut butter sandwich.

OoohKAY, then. Experiment over. All I did was find a new way to make potato soup.

I had waaaay too much cheese sauce, it browned on top, the sauce "broke", and the potatoes melted. And it thickens up as it cools. I sat down with a bowl and a fork and ended up getting a spoon.

Back to the drawing board.

Ha! Here, we are cooking so very much!

For our dinner was Joyce's nice baked ham of stuck with cloves in it and a honey and brown sugar glaze brushed over it. And baked sweet potatoes with the corn of their garden. Mamma made her fruits cocktail for dessert with the whipped cream also.

Tomorrow is the Superbowl Sunday! There will be nine people here! Mamma and I have been helping Joyce with the chili and the oxen wings, I shall be doing of the miniature pizzas, and Mamma bought the cheese balls with the nice crackers. She and I will also do the fresh nice melted cheese with garlic and herbs and the nice cocktail sausages.

Joyce has to work tomorrow from 2pm until 10pm and she will miss of all this, but I shall be texting her of scores!

Go the Carolina Panthers! Ha!

Yes, you have corrected me in Romanian.

I meant chicken wings with of oxen, the oxen are of the beef ribs.

I am very sorry of my English. I see I am corrected of here. I am sorry.

I shall post carefully and not speak until it is perfect.

On my Mex black bean kick here. Made some lime black pepper corn tortillas and had black bean cheese quesidillas with homemade salsa. Not the healthiest thing to eat...but it hit the spot.

I can attest to the pumpkin pie guts.

Poor DH, you love to wind him up and watch him go!

Carl says of my cooking, he loves it very much! But he is a man and they are always hungry so this is not too much of a compliment, yes?
