Probably Hamburger Onion Pie: http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sourc...KXmPUw&cad=rja

This was my first recipe at 13 years old. I still love it 52 years later.

Just coming home from a trip the refrigerator is pretty bare so will have to make a run to the store for some milk. I'm thinking of doing up some spaghetti tonight. I have the hamburger and smoked sausage for the meats to add to the sauce. I'll pick up some lettuce and other salad veggies and some nice bread to make garlic bread. After 4 days of sandwiches, burgers and pizza, it will be nice to have a regular meal!

I'll be doing Chicken/Chorizo Pissole today. I found an interesting new recipe that I'll be changing up to make it less labor intensive, so I'll give a recipe report later.

I also found some really flavorful nectarines that I'll be adapting to my peach cake with vanilla butter sauce recipe. Our peaches have been lousy around here this summer.

Definitely a cooking day today!

What about posting your peach cake with vanilla butter sauce recipe. It sounds delicious.

My mother used to make that with bulk sausage instead of ground beef. I never knew where the idea came from. Thanks!

I think I'll marinate some BS chicken breasts and pan roast them. Just made some pasta salad as a side.

Oh much yummage. Thanks, Kayelle!

I'm neither a baker or much of a dessert person, but this sounds wonderful!

For those of you who never enjoyed the pleasure of 1960s American Television commercials directed at impressionable children:



Beverage of choice in this situation will not be from the grape, but a nice chilled glass chalice of Stella Artois

I have chicken in the slowcooker with taco seasonings and broth. We'll shred the meat later and make chicken tacos for tonight.

Hope you give it a try DL. :)

Here's a picture of the cake with two pieces missing. I live by the rule, "life is short, eat dessert first".

That looks fantastic!

Have you tried other fruits or berries? I'm thinking blueberries might work pretty well.

Thanks so much!
Just peaches and nectarines so far, Bea. I'm thinking apples in the fall, and instead of vanilla in the butter sauce, I'm thinking maple flavoring. Whatcha think? I don't bake much.
