I guess I was subliminally channeling burgers. SO reminded me we are having L/O stuffed flank steak and butternut squash.

Regardless, it has still been a picture perfect day.

I had planned on shrimp po-boys, but the deal with Himself was that he had to cut the weeds grass. Sunset is in just over half an hour and he hasn't even fired up the lawn mower yet. I also have a package of chicken breasts, so I'll probably make something with a couple of those. Not a happy camper right now...

*PS - Thanks for letting me vent. Sometimes it's just ONE of those days...

We spent the day cleaning our house that is SOLD!
We were suppose to go out to dinner with one of our neighbors as a final goodbye, but she came over late this afternoon to say that she was ill and she asked a rain check, ummmm, that might be difficult (we leaving, `member Dee?)
SO!
I went to our neighborhood market to purchase a few frozen prepared meals for the rest of the week that we're here.

What I do is dump a cup of kosher salt into 5 cups of water with new potatoes and boil until tender, then dip the potatoes into butter to eat. If your recipe is close to this one, I'm wondering if you used kosher salt or regular salt. In the recipe I'm going to do, a cup of regular salt would be way too much salt, but a cup of kosher salt is just right.

I grilled a marinated flank steak to rare, thinly sliced it and served it with with glorified salads and our favorite easy "butter browned orzo pilaf". 1cup butter browned orzo, 2 cups water, 1pk Lipton Onion soup mix, simmer for 15 min. Yes, I had a little and it was deeeeelicous as always. Obviously the additions are endless there..mushrooms, a small amount of golden raisins, slivered almonds are just a few, along with a splash of soy sauce.

Himself did tune up the lawn mower, so I fed him. Didn't cut the grass, so the po'boys will be tomorrow. Meanwhile, I did a pan fry of Italian sausage chunks, onion, one lonely little zucchini that was in the veggie drawer, and bell peppers (green, yellow, orange). I scored those for $1.50 a pound except the green one - that was only 99 cents. Made cheesy garlic toast with two of the rolls I bought for the po'boys. Don't need six of them for that!

Kosher, that's all we use anymore for regular cooking, other than occasionally finishing salts.
