WOW! I'm having buttered (oleo) brown rice made with the turkey stock and a packet of onion soup mix, topped with some of the turkey neck meat and the garlic cloves I boiled with it. It's sooooo good, I feel like swooning!

Boy Zhizara, you've been a busy bee today!

I'm baking a small ham, "Kentucky Legend" brand. Tasty little half-football thing. We'll have fresh green beans and paprika potato cubes to go with it. All quick and easy - I might even skip the salad just so I might get something else done around here.

And all this talk of meatloaf is weakening my resolve to not buy any more meats before I plow through some of the things in the freezer. Leaving for vacay in less than three weeks and have to start to reduce my stock in the 'fridge NOW!

Harry, good to see you again.

Today I'm experimenting with some mini meatballs, crimini mushrooms and stuff to make a rice based casserole.

Greetings fellow Brit! I am looking at your pic and thinking you can't have got that tan in Manchester!

Oh and your dinner looks like a winner.

Katy, has it always been Cod for the 'fish and chips' or did they use some other fish in the past? Here in New England the fish of choice used to be Haddock. But our government has put restrictions on how much can be caught. As a result the price is often too high. But I still will buy one medium size filet. Just enough for one person.

Well Hello Harry. Glad you are back.

For dinner I'm making hamburger stroganoff over egg noodles, broccoli and a sliced tomato.
