i made a new recipe called chicken enchilada casserole. made bout three pounds of. less labor that reg. enchilada, no rolling of tortillas. just layered flour tortillas , chicken in sauce,(green sauce) refried beans, sour cream and cheese. my son will take the bulk of it to his house. couple dinners for me as well. the taco seasoning made it a tad salty for me. but ok.

We had BBQ chicken with rice for a side and strawberry shortcake for dessert. I tried a new thing with the rice. I cooked it in chicken broth and added a packet of Italian salad dressing then added butter after it was cooked. Came out very tasty.

I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Hot Dogs - Wal Mart was actually out of Nathan's hot dogs , so we will be trying our first Hebrew National tonight. They look good, and they're sure pricey enough.

I was hungry early, so I made a turkey melt. It had deli turkey, Havarti cheese , sauteed red/green bell pepper/mushrooms, lettuce and a tomato on a hoagie roll. On the side, I served a makeshift coleslaw, which was very tasty!

Mark had to work late, so I made him a breaded pork chop cooked in mushroom soup, mixed vegies and a small roll with butter. This seemed to me to be a boring meal, but he enjoyed it. I guess that's all that matters.
A little kindness goes a long way.

My husband had wanted me to do a meatloaf with some ground venison someone gave us. Little did we know that the economy being what it was, our house restorers (we have a 160 or so year old home) were coming ... well, yesterday. Normally it takes months to get the attention of anyone good at that kind of work. This project was to be the dining room, which means we emptied all of our china, silver, and crystal on to any available surface. We'd already agreed to call in, carry out, nuke, or eat out for the week or two the project would take, but we didn't think they'd be here so soon. So here I was with a pound of ground venison, some pork fat to help it, etc, so I managed somehow. Meatloaf, green beans, baked potato. But I'm not planning on cooking for the next week or two.
