I have temporary access to my kitchen today, so I am hoping to do a large batch of spaghetti sauce for the freezer. Depending on time and ambition, we will have lasagna or spaghetti tonight.

Ms M, I love corned beef and cabbage!

We will be having a small roast chicken and a tossed salad for dinner tonight.

I have been buying smaller whole chickens lately, 3.5-4.25 pounds, and like them a lot. They cook up faster and more evenly than the bigger ones. At least that's the way it seems to me.

It's freezing here in the south today, so I'm thinking a big pot of chicken and dumplings is in order for dinner tonight.. with some homemade buttermilk biscuits.

And if I'm feeling ambitious in a little bit I'm thinking about making a red velvet cake for some cake truffles.

Lunch will likely be a ham and swiss sammy and soup.

Pasta Fazool (pasta , beans, diced tomatoes, garlic, onions, Olive Oil, salt , pepper) I don't use a recipe , just cook the pasta, drain add beans, canned diced tomatoes, minced garlic, minced onions, sea salt, pepper. Topped with grated Romano cheese, not the pre grated kind.

I am waiting for a sale on corned beef. I enjoy it too, if any corned beef left from dinner, I usually make a nice sandwich or panini with it.

Dinner Tonight...
Lemon and Herb Pasta

Boil water and little chop-chop of a few herbs and you're done! My favorite part, aside from the meal itself, is the easy clean-up. In the end, you'll end up using only a small bowl, large pot, strainer, knife and cutting board.

Grocery List
2 grilled/broiled chicken breasts, chopped
3-4 cups of penne pasta (You can use more or less dependent upon need. You can also substitute different pastas)*
2 tablespoons of olive oil
3 tablespoons of lemon juice
3 tablespoons chopped parsley
3 tablespoons chopped green onion
Dash of crushed red pepper/or ground black pepper to taste
1-2 cloves minced garlic

I took a very small chuck roast cut strips from it. Put them to marinate in evoo,garlic,brown sugar and balsamic.After I brown some mushrooms and onions in butter and evoo, I'll take the meat out of the marinade and throw it onto a hot grill then put everything on a buttered and sliced the long way loaf of warm French bread.Fruit and cheese for dessert and green salad with avocado and sliced red onion to go with the sandwich.

Unfortunately my freezer is not big enough to buy quantities but I am expecting to buy my sister's freezer when she moves to another state.
