DH had to go to the grocery store and pick out his vegetables for his beef and vegetable soup - onion, leeks, carrots, kale, Brussels sprouts, tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash and cabbage. There is enough for a few days lunch AND dinner and probably a breakfast or two. I love soup for breakfast

Share the meal or the recipe or both ? Actually I didn't follow a recipe , I just added ingredients I thought would taste interesting. If I can remember what they were. In the ground beef I added Salt, melange of pepper, ground basil, ground rosemary, minced onion, onion powder, roasted garlic, I don't remember what else... anyway it did turn out tasty.

elfie, is that a japanese style bowl? i have a sushi set the looks very similar.

we went to an italian restaurant - really a glorified pizza place on route 23 in jersey, on the way home from pumpkin picking.

my boy had sketti and meatballs, dw had the house fish special (a big hunk of chilean sea bass, surrounded by shrimp, clams, and scallops in a light broth), and i had penne amatriciana with a side of sausage. everything was excellent. better than many fancy italian joints in the city.

We were going to have a nice pork loin roast with onions & carrots and cornbread. What we ended up having was semi-home made chili, cornbread and fried green tomatoes. Why the switch? Because the dumb cook (ME) forgot that the roasting pan gets hot when you brown the roast on the stove top. I went to move the roaster into the oven and it ended up doing a half gainer off the oven door before spralling it's contents all over the kitchen floor.

I hate this "live and learn" part of life.

Been there! Once a pot started to boil over so I set it on the counter not thinking to put a pot holder under it. Heard the formica cracking and burning picked it up and set it next to the sink. Still no pot holder! Two burn marks in two places! Then dropped the thing trying to dump it in the sink and stuff flew everywhere! Needless to say, I didn't touch anything in the kitchen for several days afraid of what I might do next!

The cold weather has made me crave soup. I made Beef Barley Soup and had biscuits, butter, and raspberry jam on the side.
