We are having boneless pork ribs done in the oven with sauerkraut, onions, garlic and brown sugar. It smells great in here right now! Not sure if we will have some boiled potatoes or leftover potato salad as a side, I really think we should have peas with this as well. Peas just seem to go with pork and sauerkraut to me ;). There is still rhubarb crisp for dessert....

If you don't like the food, have more wine!

We grilled some kielbasa and asparagus and had most of the leftover potato salad from yesterday. Strawberry shortcake with farmers market strawberries for dessert.

I ordered a few boxes of Fisher Scone mix for dh for Valentine's Day and as much as he reminisces about "Puyallup Fair Scones," we still hadn't made any up. I decided it was about time so we had breakfast for dinner with scones, bacon, and scrambled eggs with sharp cheddar. He's right, those scones sure were good fresh from.the oven with some fruit preserves!
Always try to bring a spare set of clothing when you dream about going to work or school. That way, if you encounter someone having that dream where they show up in their underwear, you'll be their hero.

May the Fourth be with you! Happy Star Wars Day!

We got takeout pizza from a local chain, it was, unfortunately, a notch below frozen, and the worst we've ever had from there. Or maybe anywhere. I think they forgot the seasoning, the sauce tasted like plain tomato paste and they must have cheaped up on the pepperoni and cheese, as we couldn't even tell there was any. I told DH he needs to call and tell them.

Mmm, scones. Good idea Sprout - I need to get my recipes out and make a couple batches.

The cold front moved in when we were in church. In the 60s on the way in, 51 when we came out. And windy. Brr. I took pity on Himself and decided he can do the chops, chicken and corn on the grill tomorrow. Tonight I threw a package of bratwurst into the fry pan, loaded up about a pound and a half of sauerkraut on top the sausages...and then decided he'd probably like a potato with that. Got one big-ish "yellow potato" (guess the store brand generic didn't pay to use the term "Yukon" on the label, or it's not a Yukon yellow), cut in half lengthwise, then sliced it wafer thin. Moved the brats and kraut to the perimeter of the pan, then piled on the potato slices in the middle. Winner! Nothing for dessert since we stopped for ice cream after church. After all: Life is uncertain, eat dessert first.

Geek! AND back at ya. Sorry to hear about the lousy pizza. I'd certainly call and complain. Might get something good out of it.

In celebration of our delightfully beautiful day, we grilled steaks outside and accompanied them with steamed fresh corn-on-the-cob. Iced tea, then blackberry cobbler with whipped cream for dessert.
