I"ll come get you Bucky!
I'll watch how the cheese is doled out. I think my memory tells me last time, they got it out of a tupperwa%& type container but I'll pay attention.
Hey Buckster, check pm..........

The Chile will be awesome, it's cold and damp and rainy here (typical, I know...)

I feel like I've been away for two weeks! After visiting my family in Florida I was home one day before I was sent back to Rochester to help at another unit for their alumni weekend.
I missed my bed, my shower and especially my tiny kitchen.

It's a beautiful autumn day here, too!

First course is roasted butternut squash soup with diced pancetta and pear garnish and rum cream.

Second course is chicken breasts stuffed with goat cheese and dried cranberries with a butter port glaze. That will be served with gnocchi and sauteed diced beets with glazed pecans.

I'm making an apple pie for dessert to serve with irish coffee.

Soooooooo..I gotta get into the kitchen now if we're going to eat any of this tonight.

Hope everyone's been well.
How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

We are either going out to the local Italian place tonight or tomorrow... dinner on the other night will be left over soup

I made some pork chops. Pan seared the chops and put them in the oven. Then fried up some onion, celery, red pepper, apple and sage. Added some apple juice and bulgar wheat to thicken the sauce and then I seasoned it. I poured the simmering sauce over the chops and left them to bake. Served with boiled potatoes and peas.

We're having some friends over for dinner, and it's a beautiful 80-degree sunny day made for grilling, so we're making one wine-butt chicken and one beer-butt chicken, to be served with Anaheim chile-plum sauce from Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill cookbook. I'm also making caprese salad with the last of the garden tomatoes and bruschetta with fresh-made pesto. Made a lemon cheesecake yesterday for dessert. Mmm, sounds good!

Salad, lasagna, and garlic bread. Maybe brownies for dessert, if I can hold everyone off long enough to get the batter into the oven!

Oh Buddy, it must be nice to be at home cooking again - and I'm sure your family is grateful as well! I took the easy way out today - put a turkey breast in the crockpot with onion soup mix. We'll have mashed taters and gravy, maybe green beans and a caprese salad when it's done. Sure does smell good, and we'll have turkey sandwiches for days. Very warm here... 90F plus, and humidity to match. Don't want to heat up the kitchen...

Saludos, Karen
