Leftover spaghetti and meatballs from yesterday's dinner, and a salad.

I made a turkey neck broth this morning. I'm currently making brown rice with some of the broth. The rest will be used for soup - chicken, turkey or both.

I have most of a large pork steak that was too tough, so I'll strip off the fat pieces, and simmer in gravy until really tender. I did this with the other pork steak that was in the package and it came out really tender and tasty.

Dinner will be the pork in gravy with some of the turkey broth flavored brown rice.


If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

We had McDonald's with the kids and their Mom. Not good for either TB or my new diet, but the company was great!

i ended up putting the chicken thighs in the gas smoker over a mix of hickory and apple. they're in a good tbs at 225, so i hope they'll be done by around 10pm or so.

in the meanwhile, dw broiled some salmon portions (which i like to top with stonewall kitchen's maine maple champagne mustard, yum), made a guacamole, garlic rice, and more amish white corn.

the buffalo tongue was still partly frozen and i don't have the time to devote to it, so back in the freezer it went.

Meatless Monday here--beans, corn, zucchini, cabbage, carrot, and tomato "stir fry."

I am back to the vegetarian diet - my experimenting with some turkey and fish over the weekend didn't go well.

Tonight it is lentil loaf (I love it!) with the last of the spaghetti squash and some watermelon cucumber salad.

TB had tuna melts with the watermelon salad!

Comfort food for us tonight, especially easy and nice since I spent most of the day canning and making tomato sauce.

We're having round stead with garlic-mushroom gravy, steamed rice, buttered baby peas, iced tea and, for dessert, zucchini cake with cream cheese icing.

i was recently at a local BBQ contest, and one of the contestants let me taste one of his ribs. It was good, but the ribs I had tonite cooked by Kayelle surpassed them!
I discovered pork loin back ribs-very meaty and without the chine bone. Once in a while our market has them on sale for $2.99 a pound, and I fill my little freezer!

I made Pioneer Woman's green beans in bacon fat and stuff. I was underwhelmed. Don't know if it was the low sodium bacon fat, or the fact that I actually followed a recipe for a change. Then we cleaned up a few leftovers.

Dawg, I've tried a couple of Ree's recipes - meh, not a fan.

We finally had the mixed peppers with Italian sausage. Ended up doing it stove-top instead of the oven. Still good. Had a regular tossed salad before hand.
