I've always wanted to try osso buco (braised veal shanks) so they're simmering in the Dutch oven now. Perfect for a sunny but chilly fall day. Pretty soon I'll start the saffron risotto to go with them; we'll also have a green salad and garlic bread.
Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.

I think it was last week on another thread about things your mom made you eat as a kid and refuse to eat now. My immediate answer was anything with the words Hamburger Helper on it. Soon after that I found a recipe for homemade Hamburger Helper and I made it tonight. It was delicious! My husband even said, "This is definately a repeat dish."
Finally things have started clicking for me, my knees, my elbows, my back, etc...

Ham and potato soup tonight.
It's a little chilly here, so soup just feels right.

After spending two weeks having major portions of our house painted (interiors) and practically having to live in my kitchen from 7-5, I was happy to take a few days off cooking. Out for burgers with friends on Friday, sent out for pizza yesterday, and today was a collection of cheeses, pate, condiments and a baguette. I'm ready to get back in the saddle tomorrow. When I was stuck in the kitchen, heck, I might as well cook, so did a fair number of high-prep dishes.

Did potato pancakes instead of gnocchi. That was a big hit.

We ended up going to the Brown Cow and sharing a Sundae, when we got home she had soup and I had a salad. Kids had a pizza party at church.

My Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic turned out very well. I took pictures but can't find my camera cable so they will have to wait.

Here is the picture, though it is a little blurred.
