What's for Dinner Friday Aug. 28th?

I am canning chili sauce today and not much time for dinner prep, and have no leftovers.....so....I have fresh cleaned snapped beans in the frig, so dinner will be green beans in some fashion.


what's happening in your kitchen?

Make that 3 for burgers! I already had that planned anyway. Tonight is one of the few nights we both will be home.

That looks very delicious!!


I'm making sirloin tips cooked with sliced onion and bell peppers in a tomato sauce. That will be served over sliced, roasted red potato... a bit of cooked cabbage and corn on the side... and french bread with butter.

Pizza on the Barby?

Trying out something I've never done. I'm going to attempt to do pizza on the BBQ, so I don't have to light off my gas oven. Dough is presently rising, and I'll document the results some time later. This is going to be somewhat of an adventure based on the dough I've made plus the cooking/baking method. If all goes well, I'll give you guys a blow by blow. Bought the special imported Italian flour at our newest neighborhood restaurant and gourmet pizza joint. That's a story in itself. See: Vero Amore

Unfortunately, I can't afford one of those gorgeous Italian wood burning ovens. They cost an arm and a leg and maybe even your firstborn.

Later, in anticipation...

thawed out some ground beef. either a two person meat loaf cooked in micro. record breaking temps here today, no oven . or i will make burritos out of it. beef and beef. that is what i am leaning toward. for dessert maybe i will make oatmeal bars in the convection oven part of microwave.

It amazes me at everything you do... from canning to making cheese!!!... to baking fresh bread! You are Wonder Woman! What did you end up doing or having with your green beans?


This was our dinner.... the sirloin tips with sauteed onion, and sliced bell pepper in a tomato sauce over sliced red potato, with a little baked cabbage and corn on the side......... french bread with butter.
