If I'm ambitious it will be smothered chicken breasts. So...most likely we'll be having Must-Goes. We seem to have leftovers so often (OK, so I cook for more than two...still haven't gotten the hang of empty-nester portions) my husband claims I must buy them at the grocery store.

Andy M, our son told me earlier today that he just "discovered" barley...a new love! He cooks a lot - some days I wished he still lived at home. Some days nothing tastes better than "someone else's cooking".

Vanilla Bean, I LOVE Breakfast for Supper! Nothing like eating breakfast late...and then sleeping in the next morning.

CJ, is the recipe for your crostada on the site? It sounds delicious!

We had rotisserie chicken, dumplings, field peas, sliced tomatoes and corn bread. I had an orange for dessert - dh had fruitcake and coffee.

No Licia, it's one I made up It's simple I had a left over pie crust so I put it on a baking sheet on top of parchment paper. I brushed the crust with melted butter, then I put on sliced apples peel and all, mixed with sugar,cinnamon,a little nutmeg and clove and then some toasted nuts, walnuts or almonds. the I took the edge and folded it up all the way around the circle about a 1/2 inch.Then I put little pieces of butter over the top just a little. Baked at 325 til golden brown or crust is bake through. DH love it with some vanilla ice cream, s-i-l loves it anyway he can get it. It's good made with pears or plums as well.

Mmmm, that sounds good, luvs. Makes my leftovers look paltry. But they ARE quality, home-made leftovers...

Cold, cold, cold here today. High, in total sunshine, was only about 20F.

We're having Swiss steak, mashed potatoes and buttery-streusel cake with whipped topping. Good day to stay inside and sit by the fireplace.

Thanks. I will certainly make one. GS and I made apple dumplings for dessert tonight. He ate 3 (or course they aren't very big).
