Just because someone tells you that you can't do something doesn't mean you have to listen.

I'm being lazy and cheap. I ordered pizzas from Pizza Hut. Will pick them up in 10 minutes.

Quoth the chicken, "Fry some more."

I'm going with barley risotto. Some ground beef, onion, orange bell pepper, garlic, barley, red wine, beef broth, s/p, parm cheese. Probably just a simple salad to go with. And whatever red wine is used in the risotto will also be enjoyed in the glass.

It was spaghetti carbonara. I took Claire's advice about letting the sheets of pasta dry a bit before running them through the cutting part of the pasta machine and surprise, surprise, it cut the pasta to thin spaghetti. I always make whole grain pasta and have never succeeded in cutting spaghetti before. w00t!

I took pix, but it was beige sauce and beige pasta, so not worth uploading.

my chicken thighs are thawed so i need to use them. one problem, no gas. evidently there is a leak. so no stove. i think i will just cook them quickly in micro. then make some ramen noodles and add the chicken to that. have some mushrooms, spinach and onions that can go in as well. will see how it works. i don't think i spelled ramen right but spell check is no help/

I am getting all sorts of pizza toppings ready to make little pizza pies in the pie maker. Should be fun!
No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best!

What's your plan?
Here's dinner. We like all kinds of goodies in our fried rice...bacon, ribbons of egg, sliced celery with leaves, green onions, oyster mushrooms, tiny peas and slivered almonds. It made the meal with the chicken wings.
