I'm thinking cheese soup with grilled ham sandwiches. I may experiment and fry up some bacon to add to the soup. I usually just use veggies in it but I have some slices of bacon sitting in the fridge from another recipe. Need to use them soon.

I browned a 3lb pice of pork shoulder that was covered in homemade BBQ rub that is now in the pressure cooker for an hour. I"ll put it in a low oven and let it cook a bit more and serve it with some tiny oven baked new potatoes

I am now thinking of a whole different direction with most of those ingredients. I am thinking of sauteing green pepper, onion, mushrooms and smoked ham then adding leftover brown rice a frying. Does this sound interesting? What seasoning would you add? I don't think soy/asian seasoning with the smoked ham would go over to big with the family.

Do you have any of this?
Creole seasoning blend

2tb onion powder
2tb garlic powder
2tb oregano
2tb basil
1tb thyme
1tb Black pepper
1tb White pepper
1tb Cayenne
5tb paprika
3tb salt

I keep this in a jar and use it whenever I cook Jambalaya or Red Beans. Sometimes I add a bit of brown sugar to some of it and use it as a rub.

MsMofet-I said the "salt and pepper" because your ingredients sound like they would taste just fine without any dressing up. Yummy combo you have there.

I have most of those in one grinder and the other in seperate bottle blended for my "AP" seasoning and oregano in a grinder of it's own.

Everything sounds really good, but I am hungry for omelets now, so I may go with that! I could have english muffins with them with good ol' blueberry jam that I got from Michigan when I was there last month...

DH is making dinner and since he can only cook eggs, he is making omelets.

James asked for deviled eggs. He will have that and a vegetable. I am having "one-bean salad." It is just green beans with oil and vinegar dressing and sprinkled with celery seed. Five more days and I will be a meat-eater again. For dessert I will have fresh cherries. James will probably have a banana.
Off to finish his eggs now.
