After the morning I've had, I could use Uncle Bob's dinner--at least the first part!

I'm making spicy pecan crusted salmon with roasted bell peppers and squash and cheesy zucchini patties. Fruit salad (berries, peaches, nectarines, banana and apples) for dessert.

Beef stew ( it's turned cold today) with lots of veggies in it. Crusty bread with lots of butter. If I'm still hungry after that, a piece of leftover plum cake.

Just finished chopping onions, red bell peppers, garlic and slicing beef for fajitas tonight. Not sure what else we'll have. It's still hot here and our appetites are blah.

Breakfast was Ovaltine, surprise surprise. Supper will be a salad, surprise surprise.

Lunch is battered, deep fried (in canola oil) cod, deep fried (in canola oil) tater tots, and steamed (in Pur filtered water) corn on the cob, washed down with Italian wimp water (just picked up a new case over the week-end), and a lava cake for dessert.

Gah, the corn on the cob was dreadfull!

sure it was lovely and sweet on the inside but the corn skins were like tough plastic, Thick plastic at that, needless to say mine didn`t get eaten at all.

I`ve no idea why it was like this eather, I did nothing different to any other time, only bought it from a different store.


yes, you`ll get the Good AND the bad reports from me, I don`t care, Truth is Truth!

For some reason it's cheaper here to buy a dish already prepared that you put into the oven than to make it from scratch, so since I'm on a tight budget this week I took the help for my main dish, lemon pepper roasted chicken with thyme stuffing. For my side dish I roasted some diced sweet potato and butternut squash in some butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and brown sugar and we also had a green salad.

It's pretty warm here; we're having beef tacos. That should hold me till after my 7 p.m. meeting and then maybe I'll make a green salad.

Good for you, Mom. It's nice to see there's someone who has multiple crock-pots. Wonderful planning.
