Dinner, Monday June 30th

Well, I have been fortunate to have the last few nights off from cooking. It is very hot here, though that is not a complaint, it is better than the constant rain we were having!

I have decided to do a cold meal and since I have been up several hours I put a ham in to bake before it gets too hot out, boiled some eggs and pasta and made some buns. Now all the cooking is done and I will just have to slice the cold meat, make the salads and everyone can just dig in!

What are you making today?

^^^so good to see you here today my friend...
I made this
yesterday and it's been marrying since.
so with it will go garlic noodles.
roasted brussels/onions/carrots/broccoli in the oven with evoo.
NYT bread that I did very simple today, nothing added extra to it.
I'll grab some buckytoms/thai purple basil from the back yard and the balsamic aged stuff and will drizzle.
dessert = carrot/zucchini cupcakes with sour cream/cream cheese frosting

y'all have a great and Happy Monday!

footnote, the NYT bread is rising nicely and smells so fragrant

Hi Suzie, I love making fritters and they are so tasty to eat. In Turkish cooking we use aubergines, onions and zucchinis a lot. Enjoy your meal.

LadyCook, I feel for you and am sorry that your tootsers are as painful as they are right now.
I don't know if anyone remembers my breaking my big toe and baby toe, same foot, a couple of years back from dropping a 5 pound frozen wet rump roast on my bare foot. It dropped from the freezer to my foot and I was on the garage concrete floor so no cush. I had to work the next day and I have to at least show up for work in spike heels. Guess what didn't fit? Guess who had to go to work anyway? Guess who had to try? OMG.................then, exactly one month later, I broke my entire left foot and was outta work for 5 months.
So, like you, unless you've witnessed a foot malady, you have no clue that all your weight goes to your foot being able to balance it. All a persons weight ends up on their feet and when they're hurting, YIKES!

I'm have a pork chop/steak looking thing that came with the loin I had cut, grilled. And some corn on the cob, grilled. Maybe a cucumber and onion salad, too.
