Well, I'm eating at work tonight and once again I'm unsure how many will be at home for a meal. I suspect Ken might be on his own. Bugs has informed us she will be visiting with her new beau, and possibly eating dinner over there. Madeleine is going to be over a friends finishing a project that they present this week at school. I have NO idea if she will be home for dinner. Ken is a sure thing though. LOL! I think I'll leave either a vat of spaghetti sauce (easy to reheat later if necessary) or do some chicken thighs and leave them for Ken. He likes those in his lunch leftover.

We're trying my experiment. A twist on cabbage rolls. A Dirty Rice recipe from Paul Prudhomme, wrapped in collard greens and cooked with his creole sauce.

I took a pound of hamburger out of the freezer. I think it may be destined for spaghetti.
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

We I was going to make sloppy joes but it is 80 degrees outside so I'm thinking burgers on the grill now.

Chicken and Sausage Gumbo. It's just about the best I have ever made!!!

It's interesting how gumbo comes out so differently, yet is very good each time. It's all in the roux.

I love gumbo! I add some dark beer to mine and it really rounds it out.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

oven fried chicken thighs, chicken flavored rice (a mix) and some veggies. have a cadbury egg for dessert. i love those things and am always so glad for easter when they are available. so tempting to eat two. can get away with one as far as blood sugar goes.
