Hmmm I wonder.....does zucchini work well in chili?

I suppose you could add it to chili, but I'd do a separate thing with it...My guy love sliced zukes, with onion and garlic sauted in a little evoo add some chopped parsley and then at the end beat 4 or so eggs with some parmesan cheese and pour over the zukes and let the eggs set up like scrambled it's tasty and my gang loves it.

Making some Catfish "Po Boy" sandwiches, with cole slaw and some seasoned fries.
And before the Food Police strike, no, it won't exactly be a Po Boy sandwich, but
that's what I am calling eat. I mean it, LOL!

Time permitting, want to dunk some apples on a stick in caramels/marshmallows, the other half in chocolate, then rolled in peanuts -& wrap in cellophane with a bow for the trick or treaters. (They get mean when you don't get candy. LOL).

It's going to be a quick semi-homemade dinner.

Plan A:
Tomato egg drop soup (can never get the egg drops right - hope it works this time), frozen Pork buns (from the Asian market), shrimp egg rolls.

Plan B:
Have to use up some 5 cheese tortellini. Found a recipe for California Italian Wedding Soup that looks pretty good. Their's uses orzo - I'll use tortellini & make my mini Italian meat-a-balls. Garlic bread to go with and key lime pie yogurt.

I haven't cooked for ages - been working way to hard ! Fortunately DH loves cooking as well! We had pork fillets with a pepper, pecorino & port sauce; fresh asparagus and mushrooms on the side tonight and the most I had to do was to pour the wine

Pasta E Fagioli left over from yesterday, with NYT bread. DW is under the weather, but the soup sounds good to her.
