SO's granddaughter and her friend are visiting from Florida so SO made chicken dinner pies for tonight.

I made a pasta thing. Sautéed onions, garlic and bell peppers. Added Penzey's Sandwich Sprinkle, dried oregano from the garden, diced tomato, a jar of marinara with basil and sliced pepperoni and simmered for a bit. Boiled orrechiette (little ears) pasta and mixed it all together. Served with garlic toast. Pretty yummy

I'll be doing the lamb chops I planned for last night with a rice mix for the SC and glorified salads for both of us.[/QUOTE]

The lamb chops were delicious along with the special English mint sauce. The local mint sauce here does not compare. And oh yes, the salad had some of my fresh tomatoes from my monster plant

Now that I'm cooking for four I must be cooking for 10 - we had leftovers tonight! Loverly is complaining that her fridge is too full, and she's right. Himself put a dent in the kielbasa and kraut, I finished up the last small amounts of ham-and-bean soup and the bacon-black eye peas-collard greens, while Loverly cleaned up all kinds of salad fixin's. Goober hid in his apartment up in the city since he's finishing up with a nasty cold. Which we'll all probably end up getting.

Great looking gumbo, Shuga. Some dishes are just meant to be "leftovers".

Those kids of yours will sure be sad when the folks go home and the fridge is empty from Mom's good cooking CG.
Nothing says lovin, like Mom's home cookin!

We went to TB's parents place for dinner and dominoes (a game called chicken feet). She has been having all the local kids over as they are leaving for Palm Springs on Monday and have lots of food. They thought they weren't going for a few weeks but got a great flight and Dad got his okay to travel from the doctor.

So, we had pork tenderloin and a ton of veggies, topped of with Christmas baking and tea!

We played 4 games - TB won 2 and I won 1. His Mom won the last one!

Ooooohh, everything sounds so nice here!

We had grilled pork chops (indoor grill this time) with mushroom gravy, baked sweet potatoes with brown sugar and butter, peas, and dessert was a Jello mold with cut-up bananas, apples, and seedless red grapes in it.

Then later in front of a movie, ice cream!

I did a solo backpacking over-nighter in our local mountains, set up camp at a trail camp, and cooked up some fried rice with eggs and bits of pink salmon. I don't care much for freeze dried camp meals, although I always carry a pouch as backup. I also drank lots of hot tea to keep warm before turning in for the night. My pack weighed a ton because I had to pack my own water.
