Two lean 6 ounce hamburgers on toasted sesame buns, + one for the Mrs., fried in butter in a screaming hot dutch oven under a Lodge 2.2 pound grill press; 2.75 minutes on side 1 and 2.25 minutes on side 2. With mayo, tomatoes and pickles and a few Sam Adams OktoberFest bierle .

I'm pulling out the frozen chicken cordon bleu, making some rice and some green beans.

Into a CI skillet with a double handful of sliced onions. Cook the chops then make onion gravy for the mashed potatoes you have on the other burner.

Put a little lettuce on those, Bill and I'll be over! I can only imagine the nice crust those will have.

I think I'm going to turn those thawed pork steaks into Andy's Italian string bean stew over egg noodles. That will surely hit the spot on this too cool of a day.

Ain't cool enough for me. Wish I lived in a place that had 35 - 65 year round. Gotta save the lettuce for our BLTs. Pork steaks with onions (and mushrooms?) can be delish.

I'm pretty sure it never got much over 60F here today. I even broke out the light jacket for a while, probably due more to the wind than anything. And yes, B_Ts just don't cut it.

I've got half a mind to throw them in a saute pan with the onions, then dump some cream of mushroom soup, milk and rice in there, too, but I really want to use up those green beans. Come to think of it, I used to make that all the time with canned green beans, I'm sure the fresh will work... I'm sensing a change of plans coming here...

I'm about to put a roast of beef in the oven. Will mash some potatoes and peas for Dad and heap with gravy. DH will have a salad with his and I am having a salad with egg, avocado, strawberries, cucumber and various seeds topped with a strawberry vinaigrette (no meat for me).

Though Andy's butter chicken, Bill's burgers, Bucky's veal and Pac's pork steaks are almost (but not quite) tempting to drop the meatless meal for tonight!
