Nothin' fancy (as usual) but good. Made a ground beef and potato casserole, canned seasoned turnip greens w/ a little bacon fat, corn bread, radishes, olives, pickes, mild peppers rings, and corn bread. Made a dessert "Dessert Diva' suggested. Son loves it, white cake mix, make as directed except change the water to 1/2 a cup. Spread in 9x13 greased and floured pan and add any pie filling to the top and swirl in, bake 350 ' - 50 mins. My sons favorite is strawberry, then when cool and serving dust w/ powdered sugar. It is sooooo good, w/ vanilla ice cream. Sorry for such a long post !!

We're making my sausage and noodle casserole...good comfort food. There's some beautiful fresh asparagus sitting in glasses of water in the fridge...I may cook that up too.

We get by with a little help from our friends

This past week has been a bad one for me. I had an older horse of mine pass away last week, & this morning a very old cat of ours who'd been under treatment passed away in her sleep.

To help clear the depressive cobwebs, I took a drive to one of our local organic/gourmet shops & picked up some dry-pack/diver sea scallops for dinner. Not feeling up to anything fancy, I pulled out my cast-iron skillet & cooked/seared them for 4 minutes per side (they were BIG) in a half-&-half mixture of canola oil & butter. I then served them with a top drizzle of Thai Sweet Chili Sauce & a sprinkling of minced Italian flat-leaf parsley. Served them with a fresh mixed green salad alongside, tossed with a commercial sesame-ginger dressing.

Must have been a hit - husband said he can't wait to have scallops done this way again.

Going to try a crispy baked fish recipe out of the May 2007 issue of Southern Living magazine and make some fried onion rings from a recipe QSis posted recently. Maybe some salad, too. Probably will have some of the overnight sticky buns for dessert that PA posted. The recipe made so many, Buck and I will have to eat them for every meal so we won't have to throw any away due to spoilage.

Nothing cooked except 4 incredible men on stage.
No dinner for me.
Instead I ate all of them up .
No sleep either since last night, too much to "chew" on
