Wow, luvs, it must be just past midnight for you! You are really prepared for dinner!

Because it is only 9:39 pm Tuesday here, I haven't really thought much of Wednesday's dinner. I believe it will revolve around either pork chops or a prime rib roast.

I may change my mind a dozen times before then, but right now I am thinking battered fish fillets and some unhealthy form of potatoes (homemade fries, fried potatoes, or hashed browns). Spinach if we still have any.

I got side tracked on Mon. when I was going to do my "sweet n sour sausage cabbage soup" so I'll be doing it today.
We had lots of rain and an unusual thunder and light show overnight, so today's even a better day for soup.

I'm feeling a little crappy today. May be a reaction to the flu shot I got Saturday.

If I hold up, country style ribs in a chipotle marinade. SO brought home a couple of squash. Looks like a Delicata and a Sweet Dumpling. I will bake the Delicata tonight to go with the ribs.

One can each of the following, plus their juice:

red beans
pinto beans
black beans
RoTel tomatoes
stewed tomatoes (2 cans)
whole kernel corn

dump in pan, add 1 chopped sauteed onion and 1 package each dry taco seasoning mix and ranch style dressing mix.

Add cooked meat if you want. Makes a ton of soup.

pb- isn't "unthawing" the same a freezing? That will take longer to cook!

Spaghetti here for us.

I thought we were 10 years in the future for a few minutes there when I saw 10/20/20! (Title edited now)

We are having something ground beefy. I've been in restraint training all day, munchkin #2 has dance class ASAP, munchkin #1 is doing a major history project that is making her cranky, and Ken is MIA at the moment. I can whip something up and we can all eat on the fly if need be. Here's hoping we can all sit in together though!

That sounds like a mighty good soup mudbug!!
The soup I mentioned is simmering away on the stove as we speak, and it sure smells good. By the way, it's nice to meet you, it seems so many are glad you are back, so hope you stick around. I've been loving it here.

I am pulling a "Barbara L". I remembered I had portobello mushrooms that need to be cooked so I have a pot of Steak and Mushroom Soup simmering now. The pork can wait until tomorrow night.
