oooh, I just read what you posted. I think I'm coming to your place.

with those ingredients you could also make a nice fish soup or stew to go with the salad.

sure, but the fish doesn't want to be cooked any more, and besides, it is a hot summer day.

You know, it's a funny thing.

Classic Osso Bucco is supposed to be done with veal shank. I have done the recipe four times in the last two weeks, twice with veal, twice with plain old beef shanks. Maybe my palette has become dull from too many cigarettes and too much beer, but I really can't find enough of a difference to justify 3-4x the price...

I wish it was raining here... it's hotter than a "you know what."

Stuffed peppers sound good. How are you making yours... like you said you normally do?

I had a french bread pizza for lunch, so I'm not having any dinner... it's too warm. Mark is getting a big salad.

I hear ya TMC veal prices are crazy....
I bought a bag of frozen cod at Costco today, so I'll do something with that. Probably serve rice and green beans as sides. The green beans in my garden are growing like wild!
